A. Dark, dense chocolate color. minimal head, mouth is already watering!
s. First off, I LOVE coffe. This beer reeks of decadent coffee with a tinge of chocolate(60/40 maybe)
T. If it where bread it would be a cookie! Relatively sweet, with just enough cloying balancing the 11% alcohol. Flat out fantastic!
M. Everything you would expect out of coffee oatmeal stout. For me a benchmark brew!
D. Dangerously tasty, nothing of a session brew but definetly desirable. One bottle is quite satisfying and a big enough beer to share.
One of my personnel favorites. I love this brew!!
Thank You Mikkeller.

Pours black with dark brown big head leaving nice lacing. Aroma is dry, roasted, coffee, lots of madeira, dark fruits and alcohol . Oooh such fullbodied and lean mouthfeel. Flavor of alcohol, dark fruits, chocolate, coffee, not so acidy as breakfast. Lean nice palate. Acidy sweet then pleasant tart aftertaste. cbeers21 (693) - Miami, Florida, USA - DEC 25, 2010
Forboding black with dark tan head. Intriguing aromas come off: toasted earthy coffee, chocolate, hints of plums and prunes and an acrid attic type smell. Unusually offsetting flavor. Unanticipated smoothed out sweetness dominate the flavor with a lingering soured and funked echo. More sublime and hidden in its complexity than a smacking bittering lurch. Much better as it warms to room temperature. A tad thin. Unusual and I am glad I tired it because of its unique qualities, however in my opinion once might be enough. It did leave a potent drag on the glass and much props must be given to its viscocity and mouthfeel. mikkopen (1191) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2010
500 ml bottle. Impenetrable black, with a thin but creamy brown head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and roasted malt; some dark fruits and vanilla are also present. The flavour is dryish bitter, slightly sour, dominated by coffee, with chocolate and roasted malt, and a lingering bitter finish. Smooth and oily. A delicious coffee bomb. irishalky (35) - Littleton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 25, 2010
For both a coffee and a stout lover this beer is perfection. Flawless blend of dark colors and dark flavor.

Bottle. Coffee, vanilla, light dark chocolate and prune/peat aroma - pretty boozy initially but faded with sitting. Oil black with small head. Strong espresso coffee malt, prune, vanilla, and mild to moderate bitter alcohol and tannic dry finish. Full bodied. A work of art. Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 22, 2010
We’ll call this color black with a thick chocolate brown cap. After the cap went down the brew looked thick and oily almost like yummy sludge. Deep dark bitter coffee aroma hints of alcohol, I also smell sweet hints of hazel nut. Brew feels thinner than expected but still acceptable. Ash or possibly dirt with perfumey hops and a nice alcohol presence and of course boat loads of coffee. Not sure what to say I was expecting so much more do to the legendary status of this beer, it was still good and of very high quality but not this amazing god like nectar like people make it out to be.

Wow, this is an exciting beer. Great coffee bitterness mixed with strong hops make this a beer to remember. Just a very complex and not one-dimensional offering. Classy. italianjohn (3225) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Black pour light amout of dark tan head lots of sticky lacing .... smells like a bag of coffee and chocolate ... bitter strong roasted coffee and light chocolate/caramel, vanilla and a bitter dry roasted coffee finish ... oily and silky/creamy with no trace of the abv at all .... outstanding Archibaldo de la Cruz (1120) - FINLAND - DEC 12, 2010
50cl bottle. Dark brown colour with a beautiful brown head. Malty aroma with coffee, alcohol and dark chocolate. Flavour is sweetish and slightly bitter with coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate and a hint of alcohol. Quite full-bodied, aftertaste is roasted and dryish. Very good and tasty brew.
