BlazerT (623) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAY 2, 2016
Bottle. Sensoric. Pitch black with medium to big, light brown head. Nice head retention and lacing. Mostly roasted malts aromas - coffee, oaky, licorice, lightly spicey quite noticable cognac notes. Taste is dry and near to medium bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, finish is dry and slighlty bitter. In overall nice porter, nice x-mas beer with noticable cognac BA notes.

drpimento (3227) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Its good, but not great for me. Some of the qualities seem to clash. Aroma is raisins, molasses, brandy, roast, yeast. Flavors like nose, plus bittersweet and tang up front, then a heavy bitter in back with sweet in front. Finish is bitter fruit pits. Not my fav Mikkeller.

Leighton (19218) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2015
Bottle shared during Scopeys 5K tasting - Croydon, London. Another one courtesy of Mr. Mitch. Pours oily black-brown with a sturdy, frothy beige head. Tangy burnt wood in the nose, dark berries. Medium sweet flavor with lots of earthy bitterness, bittersweet chocolate, burnt wood. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish with some bitter burnt grass, ashy roast, wood, earth. OK, just a bit rough at the edges.
