Completely opaque black with a thick khaki head with good retention and lacing. Aroma is super weird with chocolate some green vegetal notes that I believe are coming from the avocado leaves. Can pick out the chili and creamy vanilla aroma. Taste has bitter chocolate and cocoa with a big charred roasty flavor. Spicy then bitter in finish. Mouthfeel is semi creamy and a medium body with medium high carbonation. Flavors weren't all over the place like I expected but still didn't blend completely harmoniously. Roast was a little too burnt for my taste.

2013 bottle to a snifter. Pours jet black with a fizzy brown head. Aroma is milk chocolate with chili spices and lots of other indistinguishable stuff. Taste is bittersweet chocolate, chili pepper, vanilla, vegetal and an ashy bitterness. Thin-medium, dry, charred mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pitch black color with very dark brown head. Smells like a chocolate burrito, definitely get the avocado, refried beans, cocoa, chilli pepper, savory. Taste is a lot of roasted char, vegetal, some pepper spice, cigarette ash, a little chocolate sweetness, maybe some vanilla, tad of caramel malt. Mostly a lot of roasted charred hop bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black with creamy head. Aroma is grassy and spicy perhaps with some aniseed or clove? Has a thick, rich texture. Flavour has a light chilli warmth and a certain creamy taste perhaps coming from the beans. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Huge thanks to Galen for sharing this one!! Deep black pour with a rich brown head; stunning pour for a 6.6% beer in this category. Nose brings, remarkably, all of the adjuncts described; creamy avocado and nutty, sweet almond milk are inexplicably identifable, along with nice lightly warming chili spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cacao nib. Flavor brings a lot more actual beer to play, with bitter roasted malt and dark chocolate blending beautifully with additives. I like it.

Inbreak (2041) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - APR 7, 2014
07.04.2014, 0,33l bottle @ BBGTC tasting:
Big light brown creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly rich and sweet, dark malts, dark sugar, grass, spices, herbs, licorice, anise, cough syrup, coffee, hints of chili. Taste is slightly dry, dark malts, grass, spices, raw licorice, cough syrup, caramel, chili, coffee. Medium bitterness, watery and slightly dry mouthfeel. Fair enough, a little disappointing and missing the nice warming chili touch.

Wspaniale oleiste piwo czarne geste z ciemno brazowa spora i trwala piana. W aromacie przede wszystkim gotowana fasola, gozka czekolada i kawa. W zapachu te same wrazenia co zapachowe ale do tego maslanosc mleczka kokosowego wyczuwalem dosc srednio ale ta fasola dala sie odczuc. Avocado nie wyczulem, ale chyba to ono oddala maslany smak. Lekko pikantne za sprawa papryczek. Po wypiciu pojawily sie rumience na policzkach, pewnie za sprawa meksykanskiej chilli. Bardzo polecam to eksperymentalne i smiale piwo.

Incredibly unique beer, interesting array of flavors, would be hard to drink a whole bottle though. Pours a super thick black with a brown head. Smells or cocoa, some black beans and chili. Taste is very much like a taco. Can really taste the black beans and avacado. Very sweet and creamy to start, but a huge amount of smokiness in the finish. Good, but can be tough to drink lots of. Had in the bottle.

tomekk1978 (447) - POLAND - MAR 23, 2014
Barwa: ciemna, jak smoła, nieprzejrzysta. Piana brązowa, średniej wielkości, drobno pęcherzykowa i ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Wysycenie niskie. Aromat: ciemne słody, czekolada, chili, zielone rośliny, chmiel żywiczny. Bardzo złożony i interesujący. Smak: lekka słodycz i kwaskowość, następnie akcent piekący, lekka goryczka i czekolada. Niewielka nuta alkoholowa, po czym następuje wytrawny kakaowo - czekoladowy finisz. Wyjdzie na to, że jednego dnia wszystkie degustowane piwa z Mikkellera były wybitne, ale faktycznie każde kolejne jest jeszcze lepsze. W tym przypadku na korzyść działa jego złożoność i wielowymiarowość, zarówno w aromacie, jak i smaku. Być może jednak mnogość składników faktycznie może pomóc?
