3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours an onyx black body with a large creamy light beige head. Nose is espresso, dark chocolate, cocoa, chocolate ice cream and hints of cereals, caramel and dark syrup. Taste is heavily roasted espresso, burnt toast, ashes, licorice, cocoa, dark chocolate and hints of caramel, dark syrup and burnt sugar. Full body, medium carbonation. Extremely coffee-dominated, but nevertheless a solid imperial porter from Mikkeller. The alcohol is well hidden, and drinking this feels pretty much like drinking a beer version of an Italian espresso. Enjoyable.
