Big massive beer, lovely. Pours oily black with a small tan head that dissipates to a ring. Minimal lacing. Nose is burnt coffee and bitter chocolate. Aromas are same, as well as a hint of dark fruit in the background and lots of bitter espresso. Mouthfeel is oily with lively carbonation. Tastes are big sweet and a huge bitter finish. Great stuff.

This is possibly the best aroma from a porter of all time. Chocolate sweet marshmallow, fudge, baking bread and a touch of coffee. I could go on but I need to move forward. Smooth rich cream and milk chocolate flavor.booze is noticeable throughout. Bitter coffee and booze keep it in check from going too far toward sweet. The finish is just a great lingering roast and coffee with the dryness from the booze keeping me smiling. Best beer experience I’ve had this year without a woman with me.

caesar (5567) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle from De Molen Beershop, 8% ABV, BB 24/09/17, large sample. Dark brown color, medium frothy brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate, some coffee, oatmeal?, some licorice, slight blackcurrant. Soft sweet in taste, soft bitter. Chewy chocolate in the finish. Full bodied, soft carbonation. Not even that complex, but wonderfully balanced. Awesome beer, reminding me of the days Mikkeller was experimenting less, but made some absolutely outstanding stuff like Green Gold, Jackie Brown and Beer Geek Breakfast. More of this old school stuff please!

Pours thick, oily black with a large tan head. Aromas of roasted malts and chocolate. Big roasted malt flavours, dark chocolate, fruit cake, coffee, slightly sweet, low carbonation. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Superb. Although my bottle was marked as 8% ABV rather than the listed 7.4%?

Lukasmh (333) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours thick sirupy pitch black with awesome tan long lasting creamy head. Aroma is quite hoppy, grassy. Hard roast, dark malts, dark chocolate, and some sweet caramel. Taste is quite sweet, roasty malts, coffee beans. Medium body for the style. Really nice roasty dry finish and some bitterness from the hops. Nice balance and drinkable.
