Tasted at vinen verden, this is a killer, one you have to try. I need to wake up to one bottle of this, every singel morning. BeerBiker (1415) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2006

My very first beer to rate on ratebeer and not a bad one really, which hopefully is a sign for more great beers in the future. It’s roasty, black, creamy and is it with real coffee or coffeebeans? My best wishes for Mikkeller. beermouth (435) - Langeskov, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2006 Tasted at Vinens Verden... Never tried anything like it. Really good oatmeal stout. Sadly I haven’t tried the Bottle version, so can’t say anything about the different’s. This is just a really good Breakfast. Bov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 2, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2007 courtesy of Papsoe; an oatmeal stout labelled "draft version" - black coloured under a creamy beige head; robust broasted mocha aroma met by decent nutty and hoppy notes; creamy mouthfeel and a solid nalt body; fairly bitter and dry finish along with more coffeish and hoppy notes - very nice beer with an impressive balance Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 26, 2006
500 ml bottle. Black with copper colours at the edges. Small light brown head. Roasted coffee aromas. Medium-bodied. Bitter dark chocolate and espresso flavours. Dry mouthfeel with a strong drying hop bitterness. Finishes dry and bitter.

(on tap) Aroma of cikorie"coffee" and fresh diary products. Yes, they managed to put in the cream along with all coffeenotes. Odd sour mouth, maybe from all the burnt malts? A super opped version for sure. yngwie (17038) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 26, 2006
Bottled. Pours jet black, with a small tan head. I had it too cold, unfortunately, but on the second pour the head got bigger and creamy. It looks almost oily in the glass. Lots of chocolate and coffee in the nose, with some hops and quite a deal of roasted notes. Lots of flavor, with the same elements as in the aroma. A bit too much Co2, but except for that, it feels good in the mouth. Long, dry, roasted and lightly astringent finish. Another great brew from Mikkeller.

Draught. Black with a brown head. Aroma from chocolate, cocoa, malty and with some mint. Flavor brings cream, milk, chocolate, coffee, cocoa, quite bitter after a while. Nice creamy body. Bitter finish. larsga (7509) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2006
Thin dark head. Pitch black body. Soft burnt sooty aroma with coffee notes. Taste is oily burnt coffee, somewhat dryish. Good, but maybe slightly one-dimensional. (0.5l bottle.) 3fourths (9332) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 14, 2006
Growlered. Nose is rich, roasted, semi-sharp coffee, not too strong with the coffee influence though, but still decent. More black smoked malts and charred grains in the flavor. Creamy up front, full of rich creamy coffee. Not as complex as other coffee stouts, not as robust as others, but still some very drinkable stuff.
