Copenhagen. Opaque black beer. Palate starts crisp, turns frothy. Flavour is warming dark malts with an appley sweetness. Alcohol spice. Not much barrel here. Decent enough - strong and dark.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle, purchased at Ölbutikken, Copenhagen, a couple of years ago) Pitch black colour with frothy, brown head. Roasted, malty nose with notes of strong black coffee, dark chocolate, liquorice, dried fruit, raisins in rum and hints of oak wood and whisky. Roasted, malty taste with strong sweet espresso, dark chocolate, cocoa, liquorice, oak wood, vanilla, whisky and a warming finish with a touch of alcohol and hints of dried fruit. Full body, slightly oily mouthfeel, fairly sweet. Quite powerful in most aspects, but still well balanced and very tasty. Lovely beer!

25 cl bottle vintage 2008 @ Beer Hunter’s, 31.12.2012
Aroma has some bourbon, woody notes and some vanilla. Flavour has stinging, somewhat sour bourbon, some wood, licorice and hints of ash. Good, but too strong on woody and bourbon notes. Worse than the Coal version.

This is just drenched in flavor and aroma. Holy cow. Smokey. Delicious. Has everything you want in an imperial stout including a small size bottle. If this comes your way, enjoy!

(25cl bottle best by 12-31-12 thanks to bu11zeye) it’s so jet black it seems to absorb any light around it, ring of fine tan bubbles and excellent lacing. Nose is one of the best I’ve ever smelled. Whiskey, vanilla, decadent milk chocolate, graham cracker, wood, and light peat. Taste of rich fudge, light alcohol, prune, raisin, toasty, and alcohol spirits. Linger is delicious as well. An absolutely excellent stout.

Thanks to Bluebetty
Great nose. Oak, Whisky, chocolate, vanilla and carmel. Also the usual smoke, char, and ash that is Mikkeller
Well hidden ABV but showing signs of oxidation as was getting a lot of port taste in the mouth and slight sourness
