From 50 cL bottle. Pours black with a brown creamy chocolate head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, mild alcohol presence, coffee. Very nice and inviting. Thick mouthfeel. Very nice liqourice and chocolate flavour. Very good bitterness going far into the finish. WOW
[This time it is a millenium celebrated by a Mikkeller beer. Once again I experience a slow down this millenium took me excactly 6 months compared to the last of 5½ months and the prior 3 at 5 months]joergen (28148) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2006
Bottle number 34 of 100. A pitch black beer with a huge dark brown head - this is the darkest brown head I’ve ever seen. The aroma is sweet at first you notice chocolate, but then notes of oranges, alcohol and hints of flowers. The flavor is very powerful - almost overwhelming, at first it is a mixture of fruit and chocolate, the fruits being oranges, then the fruit resides a bit to give way for notes of wood, coffee, mint, alcohol, and much more. Towards the end the alcohol gains in strength and the fruity citrusy notes comes back together with a creamy dark bitter chocolaty note. The aftertaste lingers for a long time with a citrusy hoppy bitter chocolate note. wow - a flavor bomb.

Bottled. Pitch black colour, mediumsized brown head. Aroma is really coffeeish with some hops, roasted malts and burnt wood. Flavour is very pleasantly balanced coffee beans, yeast, roastedmalts and smoked wood. Aftertaste is acidic coffee with some mild spices and fruits. omhper (25134) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2007
Bottled. Extremely black. Tarry licorice aroma. Compact tarry malt. Lots of licorice, asphalt and more or less everyhting else too. Sweet, oily and full bodied with notes of lemon and vanilla. Somewhat syrupy finisish where alcohol warms. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2007
(Bottle 50 cl) Bottle # 79/100. Pours a very thick, tar like completely pitch black and opaque with a light brown head. Distinct burned aromas with some alcohol showing. Very rich and full-bodied - no, EXTREMELY full-bodied - with burned malts and dried fruits - almost vinous. Short, bitter finish with an underlying sweetness. More a meal than a beer really.... :-) 090507 Travlr (24826) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 29, 2008
Second blackest beer that I have tasted. Aroma of roasted coffee, flavor of Starbucks dark roast with a bit of chocolately bitterness towards the end. Very nice indeed. madmitch76 (24807) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2011

Opaque black stout. Low carbonation. Not a silky Impy! Strong with spirity heat. Subtle cherry and raspberry and a few brandy and whisky flavours. Finishes dry and with some coffee bitterness. Much better when not too cold.
