The aroma is full of coffee, a hint of vanilla and milk chocolate. It pours a deep black color with billowing tan head. Up front the flavor is bitter like coffee but is folowed by some milky sweetness. The body is very big, filling and thick and has some lingering bitterness. Overall a bit strong and bitter for a milk stout where I expect something sweeter but nothing from mikkeller is quite what you expect.

Gangstergafje (479) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2016
The beer has a beautiful appearance. It had the perfect stout looks. The color of the beer is a beautiful black on the naked eye. A perfect layer of soft dark almond foam pours on top of the beer. A firm drape of the foam remains on top of the beer for quite long. The beer is so dark, I can hardly look trough it. I don’t know if it is clear or cloudy. Maybe the beer has a little ruby red touch to it. The smell of the beer is delicious. I smell a delicious dark bitter roast aroma. I love those roasted malts. De dark burnt bitterness is balanced out by a nice licorice sweetness. The roast aroma is perfect. It is not to bitter and just strong enough. It is quite an interesting smell. There is also a nice creamy touch to the smell. The taste is very nice. It has the same delicious bitter mouth filling bitter roast flavor as the smell. It is one of the best roasts I know, just the amount of bitterness and flavor. The beer is a little to sweet for my taste. The delicious roasty bitterness is flushed away by a strong soft sweet fruity sweetness, with some syrup tones that are just a bit out of balance. After the sweetness had settled a bit the delicious bitter roast flavor fills the mouth again. The finish consist mainly of this bitterness with a creamy touch to it. All in all, a lovely stout but just to sweet.

Draught at Mikkeller Tokyo. Nice chocolate stout with a milk edge, pretty rich mouthfeel, a bit too sweet for me though but this is a style thing, still a good brew considering the abv i guess.

Calisky (2333) - ALSACE, FRANCE - APR 16, 2016
Couleur brune, forte mousse cremeuse, beige. Nez grain de café et chocolat a la crème. Gout intense malté-chocolaté, sucré, crème , on sent bien le coté lactose avec un corps bien oncteux puis fin longue et puissante sur le chocolat cremeux et sucré avec des notes fumées et cappucino. Une petite bombe de chez mikkeller, délicieuse...

Foxbush (1700) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2016
UPDATED: APR 14, 2016 Draft at a Bryggjan Brugghaus in Reykjavik. This is a wonderful stout. The stout pours a pitch black with a tan head and lacing. Very smooth with a roasted malt aroma. The taste was also special with chocolate, laced with licorice. The stout has a medium body with soft carbonation. The finish is clean with burnt malt as the chaser.

corkyrory66 (1210) - BELGIUM - APR 7, 2016
Un sweet stout avec malt d’orge, avoine et lactose. Niveau abv de 6 %. Brassé chez de Proef, près de Gand, Belgique, mon exemplaire était à 2 ans avant sa date limite... Couleur brun/noir intense, à l’opacité très forte. Mousse brun clair, soyeuse, stable à 3 mm. Arômes de ganache, chocolat, malt torréfié, café, pointe de chicorée. 1ère bouche soyeuse à veloutée, sur un chocolat intense, café frappé, le tout avec un feu de brindilles délicat. Arrière-bouche avec du charbon de bois en juste proportion, café, malt torréfié. 2ème à la texture superbe, et grande densité des saveurs, avec des fruits noirs. Arrière-bouche sur le malt torréfié, dans une amplitude formidable. 3ème à l’énorme richesse des saveurs. Arrière-bouche avec fruits noirs/bois/levure. Longueur qui monte encore le niveau de complexité, jusqu’à un point inouï pour un milk … Jambes fines, serrées, groupées. Levure douce, fine, précise, très belle ligne. Alcool à l’efficacité maximale, il maintient l’harmonie et l’équilibre. Finale dont on ne peut se lasser, mais dont on peut se prélasser... CONCLUSION : un sommet pour un milk stout : nez, texture, saveurs, amplitude, complexité … Il y en aura d’autres sûrement, et notamment dans deux ans, avec un vieillissement pour évaluer son apport … Mais pas de doute que le temps aura fait son œuvre … Du grand travail chez de Proef, en Belgique...

Aroma of leather and wood. Pours black with a tremendous solid head. Sweet taste with hints of bitterness. Full bodied, creamy, quite abrupt. Decent beer.
