Pours mahogany with a brief tan bloom that settles to a slick. Nose is molasses, prune and raisin, rich earthy coffee, then wonderful wafts of vanilla and cognac. Slippery medium body with a soft tingle as it melts on the tongue. Taste is bittersweet chocolate and espresso, quite abrupt at first in it’s intensity. Lingering dark chocolate and caramel play off dry notes of wood and cognac. Barrel characteristics were spot on for me. Huhzubendah (3705) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Bottle from Blind Tiger in NYC. The beer is black with a dense, dark beige head. Plenty of lacing left on the tulip. The aroma offers dark roast, dark chocolate, oak, coffee, light cognac. Rich and silky smooth. Cognac character gains strength as the beer warms, lingering in the finish. Overall, another fine variant of Weasel.

Pours a dense black with nice chocolate milk head...quickly turning into whisps of head. Smells like vanilla, dark chocolate, and booze. A touch of sweet milk chocolate at first...then dark chocolate and mocha flavours. A nice warm boozy finish. Thick and oily palate. Oh so good.

Black pour, tan head. Chocolatey aroma with some coffee and perhaps cherries. Taste has some coffee and chocolate with some alcohol heat. Tasty and good.

Bottle, at home, from my Minneapolis Town Hall glass. Pours opaque black, thin tan head, spotty lacing. at least this one had more head than the Calvados version. Nose is classic Weasel - very ashy and smoky, with graphite, fudgy, oily, chocolate, lots of cognac here- the barrel is far more obvious than in the Calvados version. Flavours of brandied ashes, coffee, tar, lots of cocoa nib flavours. Really nice, very similar to the Calvados finish, but with more barrel. Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - AUG 8, 2012

250ml bottle pours black in color with a vigourously poured finger of light brown head that settles to leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted grains with chocolate and coffee with alcohol. Taste is roasted grain and coffee bitterness balanced nicely with a chocolate malt sweetness. Medium to heavy bodied with some mild carbonation which leaves a pleasing sensation on the palate. Another oustanding offering from Mikkeller that is very tasty and highly recommended. hopscotch (11101) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Bottle... This beer rocks!... Pours black as tar with a tiny, creamy, brown head. The bouquet provides heaps of rich, dark fudge, toasted nuts, graham cracker and a whisper of vanilla. Full-bodied, thick and chewy with tickling carbonation. The flavor is big, bold, boozy, acrid and burnt. There’s a trace of vinous Cognac sweetness here as well. Finishes acrid and mildly bitter with a hint of acidity. Thanks go out to Plovmand for providing this world class bottle of excellence!
