I was so pumped to finally drink this beer and it was a total yeast bomb. Drank the top half, very intense roasted black coffee. Still kinda pissed, zero carbonation. Not sure what it was intended to taste like.

2015 vintage, 330mL bottle with Keith Shore label. Like other Mikkeller beers brewed at Lervig, the label says 'se kapsel' for best before, but nothing showing up on the glass or the cap. Poured into a snifter glass. Served at cellar temperature.

A (4.5) Pours a thick dark brown with one finger tan head. Lovely amount of lacing on the glass.

S (4.5) Wonderful, strong coffee notes. Sweet, chocolatey tones. Some roasted malts, but overall extremely coffee forward.

T (4.25) Coffee dominant from start to finish. An amount of hop bitterness coming through - I can definitely taste the centennial and cascade hops. I'm guessing this is a fairly young bottle. As per other reviews, the aftertaste lingers forever. Each sip feels like an individual 'helping'. Taste is extremely balanced yet complex.

M (4) Lovely and thick as one would expect for an oatmeal stout. A fair degree of carbonation, but doesn't detract the experience.

O (4.5) After sampling some of Mikkeller's more extreme stouts, this humble soldier lives up to the hype. A beer that is demanding of your attention - there is a lot for the drinker to take away. Proves that a stout does not need to be 10%+ ABV and BA to be complex and nuanced. The coffee is the real hero here.

I luckily have a few BA versions to review at a later date (bourbon, tequila, cherry wine). Happy to have tried the base beer fresh - excited to see what the various barrels have done to this terrific brew.
