Koelschtrinker (20437) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 3, 2011
Dunkler, extrem würziger Malzantrunk, tiefgründig. Rauchig, Cognacnoten, passend süßlich. Die Malzigkeit bleibt auf hohem Niveau, das Bier ist intensiv und einfach stimmig. Kakao, unglaublich cremig, komplex. Wow! 14/15/13/15/10/15

Pitch black with a surprisingly large, brown head. Aroma has much oak, booze, malt, dried fruits, butter, vanilla, sweet chocolate and no hops. Taste has a massive oak-body, very sweet, perfumed burnt sugar, vanilla, port, cognac on the palate, some more rough whisky in the back. Slightly boozy but very complex and interesting.

Big black body with a massive 1” brown crown! How do you get a cap at 17.5%??? Mikkeller knows that’s how!!! CRAP!!!! Just had an 1 hour delay from my pour to first taste and smell, new baby just had a diaper explode everywhere and I mean everywhere, had to give the kid a bath clean the floor, wash some walls, I’m sure my next weekend project will be to clean the inside of some light fixtures. I think the kid just spewed his own body weight from his bum. Back to the beer that is now room temperature. Smell is epic!! So intense, this is scary stuff. Very sweet aroma, bubble gum, smoke, charred coffee beans, and of course the cognac it isn’t hidden or even subtle it’s in your face booze. I’m getting faint noted of ginger but mot ginger. So very sweet tasting I think drinking straight grenadine would be less sweet then this. Flavour is first and foremost cognac with a bitter ash finish. Raspberry……. possibly from the booze? More bubble gum sweetness. Massive amounts of burnt coffee/ash but even this is getting a beat down from the cognac sweetness. I think this is too sweet for me but I can’t decide right now. I really wish this was chewier. Daaaaaaaaa………not sure how to score this I could give it a 2.6 -4.4 depending on what sip it is. Help me Jeebus!!! This was truly an epic beer to drink and buy it if you see it but don’t expect to love it.

Clear dark black color with a large, frothy, good lacing, fully lasting, beige to light brown head. Aroma is heavy malty, roasted, caramel, dark chocolate coffee, wood, alcohol - cognac. Flavor is heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, can sugar. Body is medium to full, texture is oily - creamy, carbonation is soft, finish feel is moderate alcoholic. 
Bottle @ ACBF ’11. Aroma is huge, peat, alcohol, molasses, tobacco, roasted malt, and loads more.
Flavour is deep peaty and alcholic liquorice, very intense. A tad too sweet and alcoholic to be top notch, but still very good. Doodler (318) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2011
Bottle #3 at Bills big vertical tasting. Pours a nice deep, dark with a tan head that faded quickly. Crazy nose of coffee, roasted malt, licorice, and cognac. Beautiful tastes of cherries and dark fruits. Some hints of vanilla and a burnt sugar finish. Nicely carbed with a beautiful balance between the brandy / cognac sweetness and the chewy, slighly bitter chocolate flavors. Double wow. Ties for my fav of the night. Delish. anders37 (26657) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2011
