330ml bottle. Pour pitch black with a tall tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, bitter coffee and cognac. Strong alcohol feel follow by roasted malt and rich coffee, not as bitter as my nose suggest. medium to high body, soft carbonation for the style and oily texture. Long and sweet finish, classic to the Imperial Stout, the alcohol warm the pipe quite nicely. mateuszk (2670) - Poznań, POLAND - OCT 18, 2016

Holy shit and omg. This beer is fucking huge. Shared (thank the lord!) bottle in greenville. I literally felt one sip go to my head. All the right dark beer notes come through but really balanced. Coffee, chocolate and cognac dominate. Roast and earth come to the table. Dark fruit, prune, fig, vanilla. Really you could find about anything you want in this brew. Complex and cerebral. Boozy is not usually a quality I go for, but works here. Want to try the non cognac version. Outstanding beer. neongolden (1649) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2016
(330ml 2014 silver wax bottle from Mikkeller Webshop) Pours pitch black with a moderate-sized pale brown head that persists but leaves no lace. Aroma of dark chocolate, powerful cognac with raisins and prunes, moderate roasted grain, burnt wood, liqueur, light tar, soft notes of earthy coffee, hints of vanilla and liquorice. Flavour again has a strong but smooth component of cognac and dried dark fruits, especially prune, semisweet chocolate, moderate toasted malts, subtle earthy coffee and cacao nibs, light vanilla. Finish is drying and moderately bitter to balance the vinous cognac, with roasted grains, light wood, coffee grinds, a touch of liquorice. Full bodied and rather viscous with soft carbonation and a touch of alcohol. So smooth, with a wonderful fruity character from the cognac imbuing a world-class stout body and softening it. Surely the coffee has faded a bit with age, but provides balance. Lovely. DroolYeast (1489) - Odder, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2016
2011 bottle, bottleshare @ Mikkeller Aarhus. Aroma of alcohol, roasted malt, some cognac, vanilla, oak. Black colour, no head. Medium- malt bitter, boozy and light sweet. Full body, alcohol, oily texture, roasted malt and boozy finish. 4chon (6) - Olsztyn, POLAND - MAY 6, 2016 does not count
Oh boy here we go! Aroma is full of vanilla,dark fruits,coffee,roasted malts and chocolate. Color is deep black with no foam. Taste is what blew me away. Tons of vanilla sweetness is countered by bitter counter with just tons and tons of coffee and chocolate.Full bodied,oily Imperial Stout with no carbonation with long finish and coffee aftertaste. Well hidden alcohol with 10.9% ABV is really something. Mikkeller your beer is outstanding! FraekkeFyr87 (556) - - MAY 2, 2016
