Bottle in the old livin' room. mateuszk (2757) - Poznań, POLAND - OCT 2, 2017
Pours very black with a big tan head & good lacing on the glass.
The aroma is big & sweet, chocolaty & a touch hoppy. Bold, a touch fruity with a touch of licorice.
Man the flavor is huge, roasty & sweet with lots of dark fruit & citrus hop flavor. Some
Cavendish, dark chocolate, fig, & almost like a tannic woody character. Not overwhelmingly boozy for what it is, but it isn't without alcohol heat.
Thick on the palate with a long finish
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2017 As Mikkeller SD George (Georg). Very well balanced Imperial stout, round and stylish. Full bodied, great texture with alcohol hidden perfectly. Niko100 (2978) - Chicago, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2017

Smoky-roasty nose, with raisin and orange-peel notes emerging as it breathes. A touch of cloves. Sweet, with a backbone of bitterness and some sour notes. Wonderful heavy oily body. Lingering finish fading to a subtle soreness. A wonderful imperial stout, perfectly melding the bitter, sweet, and sour flavors. AWISLguy (3277) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2017
650ml bottle from Premier Gourmet. Shared with bananabi11. Excited to get to try! Black pour, Brown head leaving some lace. Big caramel, chocolate, fruits, molasses, espresso. Thick and rich, fairly smooth. The nose is fruitier, taste smoother with more espresso/molasses. Light phenol in the nose, but many other aromas. Full bodied with an alcohol presence. The blend is solid/good. Finishes fairly sweet. Very solid tasty complex brew. 14.8

Bottle @home. Pours black, opaque, thin tan head. Nose is wow, so complex, sweet at first, then a slight balsamic edge, coffee is huge also chocolate, its also quite fruity and licorice, slight tobacco. Taste is more of the same big coffee and chocolate, some coconut, licorice. It pours like engine oil but drinks like nectar. 19Michi38 (193) - Cracow, POLAND - AUG 12, 2017

San diego version.
Dark brown pour, frothy tan head.
Nice malty nose, taste is very smooth and rich.
Full body, soft carbonation. onceblind (10291) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 16, 2017
Inky black hue with a thin light tan head. Lovely cocoa and dark roast lightly sweet nose. Gentle caramel kisses. Big roasty flavor that’s dark and gently chocolaty, bittersweet and full of raw cocoa, light tobacco, and a dark roasty full, yet smooth finish. Complex as. tightslice (1397) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 9, 2017
Bottle from Willow’s Market in Menlo Park, CA. Aroma is smoky bacon, bacon candy, beef jerky molasses, coffee, sweet dark fruit syrup. Taste is sweet and smoky up front with meats and caramalized dark fruit...then some vanilla and chalky finish. Booze really well hidden but very carbonated / bready and a bit too disjointed in flavors.
