thirstyrabbit (1751) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2016
750 ml bottle. Dark body with a tall tan head. Aroma has sweet black licorice with firm roast and still pretty firm hoppiness. Rich velvety mouthfeel with notes of dry ashiness. Taste has hoppy roast with plenty of cocoa nibs and sweet licorice. Finish is milky smooth with cocoa nibs and mildly ashy roast. Very smooth and rich dark beer, considering the thick body and big roasty flavours I would even describe it as an Imperial Stout. Held up nicely for more than 3 years in the cellar; no sharp edges, everything just comes together smoothly.

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.

jake65 (3444) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - NOV 14, 2015
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 (456) - 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 (3188) - 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.
