Decent IS. Bottle brought back from Israel. Dry with a bit of chocolate. Passable as a world standard IS, though not the thick mouthfeel.

Alexander Imperial Stout
Black with a nice mocha head. Aroma sweet, roasted, chocolate notes, dark fruit, caramel, and molasses. Tastehas a lot of coffee, roast, sweet fruit and caramel. It’s a little too sweet, to my taste, and would benefit from a little more roast/dryness to balance the sweetness. warming feeling down the throat. Decent RIS.

Alexander / Mikkeller The Beer Of Milk & Honey
330ml bottle. Pours black with a diminishing, dark head. Aroma and taste of chocolate, malts and coffee. Sweet taste of lactose, alcohol, cappuccino, burnt sugar, caramel and molasses. Taste is semi-sweet, more intense in the beginning, slightly disappears in the end. Also in the and some lightly bitter notes. The palate is very nice. Overall too sweet, hard drinking, but there is actually some association with milk and honey.

Alexander / Mikkeller The Beer Of Milk & Honey
8.4%ABV. Porter. Poured out black. 40SRM. Nose has sweet raw honey aromas suggesting honeyed dates and Manuka honey. Mouthfeel is syrupy. Palate has roasty, watered syrupy flavor with honey, dates, and other light medicinal flavors. Sweet and syrupy likely the result of lactose. Hops are woody, noble. Just there. Finish is just like watered honey with charcoal. Overall, smooth and very approachable and very good, sweet palate might be off-putting to someone expecting more bitter and less sweet based on the color.

Bottle. Quite strong honey presence, full body, relatively sweet throughout. No roast malt character, despite the dark colour. Low bitterness. The orange zest is present, also seemingly with a kind of herbal cough syrup element. Good, tasty, but slightly out of balance.

330ml bottle in Jerusalem, bb 30.08.2017. Pours brown out of the bottle, looks basically black in the glass with a finger of tan soapy head that dissipates and clears leaving a ring around the glass. (3/5) Pungent aroma: leather, wood, alcohol, dark fruits, but neither milk nor honey. (7/10) Taste is much sweeter and more suggestive of milk & honey, middle is somewhat tart-sweet, finishes lightly bitter. (8/10) Texture is creamy-chewy, carbonation is light, body is full. (5/5) Overall enjoyable, nice Porter. (17/20)

Big thanks to tlahav for bringing this one!!! 330 ml. bottle shared. Black, little tanned head. Nose is sour thin, mocha, grain, sour chocolate, burned bread & vegetable coffee,... Thin chocolate taste & body, far thinner than you would expect fro 10.4 % ABV, vegetable coffee grounds, grain, thin sourish, iron, poor,... Body is thin, bit sour, red grape, coffee grounds. Apparently this is not how it usually taste, sub par bottle / batch possibly. Too bad.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours black with a warm reddish hue and a dissipating beige head. Sweet licorice aroma. Rich body, very sweet - bordering cloying - from the lactose and what appears like unfermented honey. Well made, but almost undrinkable due to the sweetness. 030417

Alexander / Mikkeller The Beer Of Milk & Honey
Drobna, gęsta, beżowa piana, średnio trwała. Barwa ciemno brązowa, prawie czarna. Aromat nie jest zbyt intensywny, kojarzy się z czekoladkami z pomarańczowym nadzieniem. W smaku słodkie, czekoladowe, przyjemnie oleiste i aksamitne, na finiszu troszkę ciemnych owoców (może i czuć tą skórkę pomarańczową?), kawa zbożowa, mleczność od laktozy i karmelowość z ciemnego cukru... Goryczka niska, wysycenie drobne, niskie, alkohol schowany, zaskakująco pijalne.
Super to wyszło, przyjemne połączenie gładkości i pełni, podbite słodyczą z cassonade, miodu i laktozy - #teamslodyczka będzie usatysfakcjonowany. Na minus mało wyrazisty zapach.

Alexander / Mikkeller The Beer Of Milk & Honey
Ciemno brunatne, wpadające w czerń. Piana brązowa, drobna, obfita. W aromacie ciemne słody, ale pod nimi wyraźna pomarańcza. Całość pachnie wytrawnie, gorzkawo. W smaku lekko kwaskowe. Wychodzi laktoza i miód. Jest gorzkawe, czekoladowe i z nutami kakao. Jest też wyczuwalny brązowy cukier. Nie jest słodki, bardziej melasowy. Gładkie w odczuciu, nisko wysycone. Przyjemnie się pije. Nie jest to najlepszy imperialny porter jaki piłem, ale bardzo przyjemny eksperyment. Zastanawia pewna nuta kwaskowa w aromacie kojarząca się z kwaśnym piwem. Zakażenia tu raczej nie ma. Bardzo przyjemne, mocno zyskuje w miarę picia.
