Bottle shared with Boise RBers. Initial impression was disappointment, but this was one to sneak up on you, very subtle in many ways. I had hoped to resample before leaving to get a second impression, but was left with lots of positive thoughts and approving nods.

Bottle, pours a dark brown topped with a thin brown ring. Nose is roast, ash, licorice, a faint bitterness from maybe a baker’s cocoa. Tastes bitter, ash, and some spice. Nice weight.

Gluepot (240) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2015
A Mikkeller Christmas present. The nose is quite unique, featuring a damp woodiness, roasted coffee and a touch of chocolate. The woodiness continues through into a complex taste profile. Other elements include roasted coffee, a touch sourness and bitterness, some nutmeg, alcohol, and finishing with a touch of cherries and dark berries. Really well blended and feels bigger than its 8% abv. A real treat.

martjoobolut (1924) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 23, 2015
From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Nice brew with a lot of dark chocolate and some spices.

andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Pours an opaque black with a massive light brown head and tons of lace. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts, light dark fruits, and cocoa. Flavour is lots of roasted malts, cocoa, coffee, medium dark malt bitterness, just shy of tasting burnt and a mild-medium dry finish.

Svesse (7262) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2014
(Bottle) Brownish black colour with lasting brown head, leaving traces of lacing. Malty, roasted nose with notes of black coffee, dark chocolate, pine needles, orange peel, black rye bread, liquorice and hints of roasted almonds. Malty, roasted taste with dark chocolate, cocoa, black coffee, pine needles, citrus peel, liquorice, hints of spices (cinnamon, anise, nutmeg) and a generous cocoa bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with just a touch of sweetness. Tasty and warming winter porter. Very nice.
