ComradeK (1036) - The Vale of Dundas, - JUN 21, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a large tan head, which lasts very well and leaves excellent lacing. Smoky, slightly sweet chilli, bitter dark chocolate and refried beans make up the aroma. A slight sweet chilli flavour up front gives way to Tabasco and hot chilli, mixed with mild citrus hops. Bittersweet dark chocolate comes into the mid-palate, teamed with some mild smoky chilli. Sweet chilli and a mild fruity flavour that could be the avocado leaf combine in the finish. This is certainly a very strange beer, but nevertheless an enjoyable one.

DuffMan (6802) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 30, 2014
Bottle, shared with phantomhennes, heavyleavy, and TvM at game night. Hearty looking dark brown pour, with a lively head that settles quickly into chunky flotsam. Nose has equal measures cocoa and vegetal notes. Roasty chocolate palate, vegetal undertones, lightly spicy but no heat. Very full-bodied for the listed ABV. the unusual list of ingredients doesn’t translate fully onto the palate, but maybe that’s a good thing! Tasty porter.

nuplastikk (4441) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Tap at FFF. Served in a small ass glass. Opaque black body. Massive rusty beige head. Steady and thick. Rich chocolate, coffee aroma. Wow. Quite an excellent Stout. Creamy, cloudy body. This is the most phenomenal Stout I’ve had in months. Cocoa nib chocolate richness. Interesting spice tones, maybe some pepper? Probably the best pepper Stout I’ve had (at that time). Specialty malt overload. World Class. Big coffee-chocolate-pepper mix is awesome.

rockana (249) - Zadar/Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 22, 2014
Really dark brown in colour with a whick tan head. Nutty, cocoa, spicy, coffee, roasty aroma. Nice light spicy, sweet and bitter taste. It would be nice if there was more chili to it, but it is pretty good this way, too. Mikkeller never disappoints :D

HammerTroll (509) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 22, 2014
Completely dark color, medium sized dark brown head, great. Aroma is smoked and spicy chocolate plus cocoa, coffee, milk, roasted malts, toffee and syrup. Medium to heavy bitterness. Medium to full body, soft carbonation, oily and creamy texture. Long coffee finish. As good as Texas Ranger, but I will give it 0.1 less because it lacks chili notes.

slowrunner77 (3843) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 16, 2014
"This spiced up porter isn’t quite the sum of it’s parts, but it was pretty damn good! Can’t really pick out the almond milk or avacado leaves, but i bet you’d notice if they weren’t there. Black beans did add a subtle flavor and aroma. Mikkellers Porters have always been fantastic, and this is no exception. LOVE the malt profile, and the light spices. Bitter cocoa adds yet another dimension to this sessionable yet contemplative brew. Overpriced, but worth a try."

Bottle. The pour is thick and creamy, big dark frothy head. The aroma is chocolate and milk sweet stout. The taste is thick, sweet, with a very mild spice. A good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
