RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Holy cow! Pours deep brown, deep cola. Little carbonation that provides a slight tan halo that leaves loose lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, a bit of soy sauce and stone fruits. Taste is equally complex. Lots of the same notes with a bit of brown sugar and finishes a bit dry. A chocolate taste lingers for awhile. At $5.99 a bottle wish Iíd bought more!

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 11, 2013
500 ml bottle from Samís Quik Shop for a cool $5.99. Pours black with just a bit of light through the edges. Light brown head at first but not much more after. Nose shows a marshmallow lactose that complexifies the more expected roast, coffee, and chocolate notes. Some mineral notes. Also some stone fruits. Taste adds a bit of sweet and bitter. Palate is chalky dry. So much going on here. Really quite lovely.

Ernest (6540) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is black (opaque, flashlight tested). Aroma is moderately to heavily malty (coffee, roasted grain, dark chocolate, caramel), with light notes of tar, cassis, juniper leaves. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. FINALLY, a good Mikkeller beer. I expected this to be another drain pour, but thatís definitely not the case. I must assume this is because this was brewed at Amager instead of the abysmal De Proef. Indeed, thatís the only reason I bought this, and thankfully itís surprisingly good. Rich malt character, very coffee-ish and enticing. Reminds me a bit of Amagerís own Rye Porter, in fact. None of the usual dirty De Proef off notes, quite clean and enjoyable to drink. Itís ultimately too expensive and sweet-and-boozy for me to buy again, but I quite enjoyed this.

allmyvinyl (5368) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 5, 2013
UPDATED: APR 4, 2015 8%. 500ml bottle at home. Pours black with a fine, coffee-cream, long-lasting head. Inviting aroma of roast malts and caramel, some dark fruits. Taste has a lovely balance of bitter and sweet, like memory of playing with a childhood friend you?re no longer in touch with. More coffee and roast flavours, some sweetness. Full-bodied, but not too rich, Lovely smooth finish. One of the best.

Cirrhosis (1248) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 1, 2013
Beer on tap at the Underground called "Mikkeller American Porter" but i asume its this one since all the stats line up. Black brown body, long lasting tan cap. First sniff is nothing but coffee. First sip is chocolate with a coffee finish. Back to the aroma..... almost milk chocolate but not really plus coffee that is all. Taste is close to same. Iím enjoying the fact that this beer dosnít seem to have any gimmik to it, no fancy aging, no random ingrediant, its just a porter. Very easy to drink, goes down scarey fast. Crap my food has arived and all I smell now is clam chowder. Sweet taste, mild ash in finsh, I will say prunes. Good beer the 8% is completly hidden, goes down fast. The very simple noncomplex tatse is what I like best about this beer.

Draft at Beer Temple. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, caramel, some dark fruit and a little vanilla. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Simply a great example of the style.
