In short: A big syrupy and very hoppy imperial Stout. Very good
How: Tap at the brewery
The look: Black body topped by a small tan head
In long: Nose is moderately roasted, hops resin and burnt chocolate cake. Taste starts very sweet with lots molasses backed by some black chocolate, some raisins and light notes of coffee. A generous amount or resinous hops saves the beer from being just another cloying big impy stout. Overall the beer feels quite syrupy and not all that roasted. A very corpulent beer with a thick full oily mouthfeel. Almost no alcohol presence whatsoever. If the syrupy molasses flavor wasn’t so upfront this would be a world-class imperial stout. Very good beer. And while on the Genealogy subject, I don’t mean to brag but my genealogy tree is actually quite impressive, for over 4 billion years each and every of my ancestor was attractive enough to find a partner to mate.
Bottle shared by Anchorage Tasting Group: Poured a black with brown head. Aroma is strong caramel and roasted malts. Taste is molasses, faded coffee and rich chocolate. Defreni (3294) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2016
Fad på Mikkeller. I tvivl om det er det korrekte sted. Står opført som Genealogy 9,5 % og ikke nogen fadlagring. Super øl med masser af power og den diskrete vanille fra whisky fadet står rigtig godt til kaffen. En superøkonomisk men igen ærgeligt på en varm sommeraftener som det nu er blevet.

On tap at Mikkeller.
Black with a small dark brown head.
Lots of roast and coffee in the aroma. A bit faint, did I have a runny nose at the time?
Taste is great with sweetness, dark chocolate, lots of raisin, roasted malt, vinous notes and slight alcohol at the end.
Smooth mouth feel, full bodied and low to medium carbonation.
Smooth and bitter chocolatey after taste.

(on tap @ Mikkeller & Friends) Pours black with little, tan head. Decent retention and good lace. Aroma is a well balanced coffee with subtle hints of what resembles oak. Alcohol is well masked. Oily texture, full body without being too filling, soft carbonation and a lingering, dark and slightly sweet coffee finish. Flavour is somewhat remniscient of dark chocolate but without much bitterness. Very smooth and balanced in it's expression with easy drinkability, which is rare for the style. Girlfriend says: "It's really good!" Valgreen (814) - DENMARK - MAY 25, 2013
