375 ml. bottle. Pours black with a nice tan head. Aroma of coffee, malt, and vanilla. Taste is coffee, roasted malt, vanilla, dark fruit, and alcohol. Very good. langeveld12 (580) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2017 Bottle from April 2014. Full bodied. Pitch black. Lots of coffee, chocolate, sweet fruits, roast and some red fruits. Sweet with a bitter finish. Quite a beast of a stout. The ageing mellowed it a bit out but that's not a bad thing. Very good! AaronIPAAPA (279) - Warsaw, POLAND - SEP 21, 2017

Good beer! Full aroma, little bit boozy but is good for 13.1. What if this beer is not to beer geek series? Its awesome! Its underrated i think. It has interesting aroma to stouts, it is different. Coffee full, bourbony, choco full and something interesting in it. Something deep to this beer, like, black hole... saltyseadog (72) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - SEP 19, 2017
375ml bottle from Prairie Trail Hy-Vee, in a Sam Smith pint glass. Deep, rich, wonderful aromas of caramel and butterscotch, cinnamon, nutmeg, aged oak, damp earth, medium-roast coffee and warm milk, with a hint of apricot hiding in there too. Pours pitch black with almost three fingers of pillowy caramel-colored head and copious effervescence clinging to to the glass. Nice spider-webby lacing leaves the glass looking appropriately wicked. Light and creamy on the entry with roasty espresso moving in quick for balance. Mostly sustains that flavor combination into a long finish that tempers the roast with a bit of honey sweetness hinted at on the label, with the slow burn of that 13% ABV hitting bottom. Astonishingly light-bodied for a roasty dark beer, thanks to the inclusion of the vanilla. Uncommonly good carbonation for bottled Mikkeller beer, very easy to drink. A very fine brew. The only disappointment being that the flavor doesn't quite equal the nose, as is so often the case. A pleasant experience at any rate. Cheers!

OMBF. W aromacie typowo i bez rewelacji, czekolada i kawa. Ale konkretnie. Obfita, beżowa piana, zostawiająca ślad na szkle. W smaku wytrawne, agresywne, zdecydowanie wybija się paloność, to lubię. Odrobina miodu na finiszu. bjorn77 (667) - Kraków, POLAND - SEP 5, 2017
OMB kran. Kawa, czekolada, dużo słodów palonych, stosunkowo wytrawne, ciała mogło by być więcej, dobre, ale mimo wszystko trochę ubogie, niewyraźne.
