look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured black with a dark brown two fingered head. No aggressive pour needed for this one. Lacing was excellent all the way down.

Smelled of dark, roasted malts, dark chocolate and dark coffee. Dark indeed.

The roasted malts hit you on the way in, hints of chocolate bounce on the tongue. Coffee comes in quite strong near the finish and lasts well into the aftertaste. Excellent balance and extremely full bodied. The carbonation is also excellent, with low bubbles, providing a nice surface area on the tongue.

Being a breakfast brew, I wouldn't recommend more than one of these in the morning, but it goes down smooth and the ABV is barely noticeable.

Notes: Paired well with a California frittata a small piece of chocolate cake.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pitch black with a beautiful brown head that settles rather quickly into a thin layer of lacings on top of the liquid.

S: Plenty of coffee, coffee beans and roasted malts. Chocolate, faint notes of dark fruits and some alcohol.

T: Wonderful coffee flavors - espresso and freshly ground coffee beans. Big malty backbone with a strong roasted character. Plenty of chocolate, some fruity notes, minimal hint of soy sauce, licorice. The finish is fairy bitter with more notes of coffee, some wood and alcohol. The hops are restrained throughout the experience.

M: Full body with a very smooth texture. Low levels of carbonation.

D: This is a great coffee stout with a rich coffee profile. Highly recommended.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

This beer pours a deep opaque, almost oil textured black. A good 2 finger, thick, light brown head tops the beer. Outstanding head retention and as it dissipates, leaves a thick sticky lacing on the side of the glass. Nose is very boozy up front, with a strong presence of dark chocolate, coffee, and some dark fruits. Taste is extremely boozy...until I let it warm up. Once warmed, there was roasted, caramel, and toffee malts present. Chocolate then dips in, and the finish is of coffee bitterness with a touch of alcohol warmth. This is a full bodied beer, thick, creamy somewhat smooth - save for the alcohol bite/kick to it at the end. Not sure that I could sit with it for an entire evening as it is heavier and the ABV isn't all that well hidden, but it's a good enough beer that I would sure the hell try!

Black as night in color, beer poured into my Kapittel Watou chalice forms a 2 finger chocolate colored head that holds for a couple minutes. Ample lacing left as the beer is drunk. Nose is pleasant with coffee, some chocolate, vanilla, and roasted malts. Beer is silky smooth on the palate and very well balanced with just a touch of roasted bitterness in the finish. Taste is chocolate with some malt and a mild warming alcohol. This full bodied brew just got better and better as it warmed, I'd recommend starting it near room temp.

I don't know where to begin with this one! What an amazing beer!

As i poured this beer into my glass, it had a great stout appearance - deep, dark, and heavy. Depending on how you held it to the light, it appeared to be deep deep brown (almost black). Poured with a great head, though it did not stay around very long. As i finished, I held the glass inverted and caught every drop i could as it slowly ran down the inside of the glass.

The smell (or should i use the word "aroma" here - you decide) and the taste literally spoke "Beer Geek Breakfast". A hint of chocolate amongst the great taste of malts and smoked coffee beans.

I purchased this beer at my favorite watering hole in Scranton, PA and ended up buying another one to sit on my shelf. I cannot wait to try it at room temperature, as I am sure that it will be even better! I highly recommend this fine brew to ANY beer lover, no matter if you are a fan of stouts or not (trust me when I say that it may just make you love them)!

Well played Mikkeller...WELL PLAYED!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

poured from a 1pt 9oz. bottle into a tulip

A: pours a dark brown/black with a nice, thick mocha head that stays around.

S: Smell is initially of roasted malt, later accompanied by nice notes of dark chocolate, toffee and slight mocha coffee. Very well rounded aroma.

T: Taste is definitely not what is expected from aroma. Initial taste is of slightly acidic coffee as well as toasted/burnt grain. Slightly boozy finish is somewhat pleasant, and keeps the aftertaste free of lingering coffee.

M: Medium/Thick bodied with a little acidity, for my taste, isn't the most pleasant, but not offensive.

D: I guess I'm not really a coffee stout person (however I do enjoy Founders Breakfast), but I wouldn't turn someone away from trying this beer. Guess just not my bag. Russian Imperials are more in my interest, I guess.

Great looking beer. Excellent head that hung around forever. Lots of coffee character in the aroma as well as chocolate and soy sauce.
Plenty of coffee in the taste which makes this beer surprisingly bitter almost exclusively from the roasted coffee. Baking cocoa and hops make a slight appearance.
A full mouthfeel with good carbonation and a Slightly chalky feel.
A good beer. I will not be paying this price again. A good beer but not worth the price tag. This beer is far from the beer that breakfast stout is and over twice as expensive.

In a tulip:

Three fingers of dark head fill up the glass with a jet black body below. I smell a bit of soy with a bunch of coffee and dark chocolate. The soy is a bit distracting. Tastes great, with strong maltiness and a heavy coffee bitter. Tons of chocolate in there as well, with hints of caramel. The finish is dry and the aftertaste is dominated by a black roasted coffee goodness. Again, the soy/sodium characteristic is there, which is the only quality i don't love about the taste. Very well carbonated with a strong, full body.

Pours a completely opaque black and a decent sized chocolate head. Almost no lacing along the glass. Dark fruits dominate the smell along with some coffee and spices. I can also notice some raisins in the smell. The taste is a bit more mellow than the smell. Dark chocolate flavors dominate with some coffee initially followed by a sweeter finish. The body is medium with a medium-high carbonation. The carbonation may take a little away from the taste.

Included in the recent CanBIF 5 from wfeddern, once again thanks!

From a brown 500 ml bottle, 5.5% abv. listed on the import label. Dense opaque black body, no light permeating whatsoever. Frothy, creamy tan head that sinks fairly quickly, but leaves thick chunky lacing behind.

Deep coffee aromas up front, intense roasted malt, somewhat dry and powdery.

Flavour is soft roasted malt and coffee notes, pretty consistent character all the way through, while a sharp burning yet contained alcohol sensation lights up the aftertaste. Roasted bitterness lingers on well after all is said and done.

Mouthfeel is a combination of a smooth medium body along with a noticable zing of carbonation.

Fairly tame for a coffee stout or an Imperial stout, yet still pleasant with no discernable flaws. I'd never turn it down for breakfast though.

Impressive thick (4-finger) tan head. Incredible staying power--like foam; leaves thick chunky lace. Near black where no light shines through.

Semi-sweet chocolate smell. Some black patent smells in the background. Very attractive.

More harsh (read: bitter) than the smell would indicate. Lots of black patent flavor. Tastes like an iced coffee with cream. Decent body with a high level of carbonation for balance. Creamy. This could be the closest thing to a perfect stout.

Who wouldn't want a beer geek breakfast? Sounds interesting at least, and I've heard good things about it.
Great pour. Black with reddish tints if you look hard enough. Huge light brown head. Wow. Looks really good. Fluffy foam settles to a thick, dense mass. Chunky and the lacing is sticky and wonderful. Some particles find their way to the bottom and between my teeth.

Light chocolate and raisin smell. Coffee dominates, but it really isn't all that strong. Some slight herbal spice like clove.

Taste is fine. Blend of cocoa and coffee with dark fruits in the back. A bit sharp, blend is not smooth. Hints of phenolic characteristics start to creep in.

Not as smooth as it looks. A bit choppy. Not bad, just a bit of a let down after the appearance.

Above average drinkability. One is enough in a night. Would have again if it were cheaper.

2008 vintage stored in my cellar.

Unibroue Tulip glass. Full bottle all to myself.

Pours a thick black and forced a three finger cocoa head that settles quickly leaving thin pocket lacing (lots of big O's).

Pleasant coffee roasted malt aroma with some chocolate.

Flavor is thin for an outmeal based imperial stout. Finishes weak and with late chocolate notes.

A good beer that's only off on moutfeel and viscosity for an imperial stout. Too thin and weak.

This is a big beer. Black in color with a thick, cafe-au-lait head. It had a wonderful aroma of coffee and chocolate, with a bit of cereal. Mostly an espresso taste, faint chocolate. I think it's pretty full-bodied and filling. Great beer, one that I will want to try again, even with the hefty price tag.

Pours a thick, opaque black color with a HUGE light milk chocolate colored head. Retention is ridiculous and lacing is good.

Smell is big as well, being dominated by freshly ground coffee beans and dark chocolate. Plenty of alcohol, raisin and cereal grain notes as well. Smells very delicious.

Loads of roasty coffee bitterness on the palate. Unfortunately, there is not any balancing milk chocolate sweetness to be found, although it does have a touch of unsweetened baking cocoa flavor. A bit of the oatmeal flavor is noticeable, but it is heavily unbalanced towards roasty, bitter coffee.

A must try for any coffee drinking stout fan. Unfortunately, me not being a coffee drinker, I found this to be too bitter and unbalanced. Amazing smell and great appearance save this beer from a pretty average score.

Excellent choice. Dark in appearance, really dark. Frothy foam upon pouring, but it settles into a micro film. mouthfeel is exceptional, kinda like ice cream that has melted on the counter before you take a spoonful. mmm! The roasted oats, and beans are very profound. if you watch the beer pour from the bottle it kinda looks like milk chocolate. I think the Norwegians got this one right...

Purchased a while ago at Mass Bev in Lawrence. I figure it's about time to give these Mikeller brews a try...

Appearance: Looks almost like molasses as it pours from the 22oz. bottle. This stuff looks thick and decadent. Darker than the darkest night. If it looked like this outside, I'd expect a vampire to wander by my window. That's how crazy dark this brew is. Pours a very large mocha colored head that slowly recedes leaving very sticky lacing all around the sides of the glass.

Smell: Smells of uber-coffee hit you right out of the bottle even prior to pouring. Small hints of oats. Roasted smells predominate this hearty brew. Roasted oats, roasted chocolate, roasted nuts, roasted vanilla beans, etc...

Taste: This RIS has an incredibly balanced taste. After the roasted coffee blast on the nose, I was expecting something along those lines, but the malts of this beer definitely win out. The chocolates and vanillas, the smoothness of the oats, and the slight tinge of licorice. Mighty interesting indeed!

Mouthfeel: This has a solid feel. It's not quite as heavy as it appears on the pour, but this is definitely an RIS through and through. The roasted notes do linger for a while after each sip making this a great sipping beer for those leisurely evenings around the house.

Drinkability: I think this one bottle will do nicely for me. It has all the right tastes, and the 7+ ABV provides a nice warming sensation while not smacking you across the face. I don't think this could ever be a sessionable beer, nor do I think it was ever meant to be. At its current price, this beer will become one of those once in a while beers for me.

4.18/5  rDev +1.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a deep black body with a large, creamy-looking, tan-head that, when I turned to look at the final moments of the film "Monsieur Verdoux", had grown to absolutely monstrous proportions. Good heavens!

Smell: Exceptionally roasty, aromatic nose of sweet-smelling dark chocolate-covered espresso beans, charred oats, and some oven-roasted caramel squares. Roast, roast and more roast.

Taste: The taste launches off with a sharp, highly roasted coffee extract flavor with malty touches of bittersweet chocolate, fire-scorched oats, chicory, and smoked black licorice. Lesser hint of vanilla. Faint blip of citrus hops buried under tons of roasted, malty rubble. The bold roasted bitterness ends up on a feedback loop as you drink. The aftertaste begins to turn a charry and acrid as it lingers almost indefinitely, but, as you make your way to the bottom of the bottle, the finish eventually smooths out, as flavors of sweet dark caramel, seared marshmallows, and burnt bread crumbs start to emerge. Finishes dry, very roasty, with a pure taste of chocolate-covered espresso beans carrying over from the aroma.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel.

Drinkability: As it begins to really hit its stride upon some very slight warming, the beer goes down unusually easy. It is very impressive, yes. Recommended.

Received in a BIF long ago, can't remember who from. Sorry but thanks to whomever it's due!

2007 vintage, poured into a Delirium Noel glass.

Exceptional head with nice brown foam and medium sized bubbles. Very good lacing. Chocolatey, velvety, black beer. Looks appealing.

"East coast" nose, like they use the same yeast and water as Victory. Hold the phone, I realize it's not made on the east coast. Rich chocolate aroma, smells sweet. Coffee is there in the background, and hops even further back. Sort of "luxurious" smelling, in a way like Young's chocolate stout. Really swirling gets other notes our as well; dum-dums, butterscotch, and freezerburn are the most interesting and prominent.

Complex chocolate malts are still the primary note for the flavor profile, with some roasted barley, fermented plums, and a bit of coffee, which I suspect used to be a more prominent feature. Faint bittering hops. Rich and multi-dimentional, and the complexity is matched by a great balance. A lingering bitterness is what it all fades to, and I can't tell if it comes from the hops, roasted grains, or the coffee. Alcohol is well-hidden and there isn't too much along the lines of esters, except for those dum-dums-like east coast esters that aren't a result of higher gravity brewing.

The light carbonation makes the water shine through the mouthfeel, which is good but not the best stout water I've tasted (go to North Coast or Great Lakes for that). Oats create a smooth velvety texture. Makes it taste almost like a single malt at times.

For a highly flavored beer with viscosity on the heavy side (not syrupy though) it makes for a pretty easy to drink beer. A very good beer but there are certainly better. By all means check this out. Cheers!

Poured this one into a pint glass. Rich Black color with a nice dark brown head. The nose of this beer contains roasted malts, dark chocolate and espresso. These come through in the taste as well along with a hint of dark fruits and a decent bitterness. The taste stays on your pallet for a decent amount of time. The mouthfeel is pretty smooth and creamy. I would have more of these any night if I had unlimited funds.

Opaque. Black hole is the visual M.O. here. The head is mammoth and very interesting. Dark mocha color around the bottom near the liquid and a lighter tan color up top. The retention is amazing and there's even some cragginess on the way down. Very cool.

The nose, even through the cap, is evident and big. Two tons of roasted malt. Mainly bitter chocolate and coffee, with some caramel malt sweetness.

Huge and complex. This one is right on the money. Tons of dark chocolate and molasses, coffee and chicory, steel cut oats, anise, vanilla bean.

Mouthfeel is super smooth, evened out a bit by a high level of hopping. The abv is nice and low, not anywhere near a session beer but absolutely beautiful and a joy to drink.

Got a bottle of this sometime ago from emerge077 but this one is from Dobby's in Palatine. If this stuff wasn't so damned expensive I'd drink way more of it. Drank from my clear Surly coffee mug.

Appearance- Pours a really dark brownish black with a nice half finger dark tan head that recedes fairly slowly. The cap is pretty much non existent while a decent collar is left behind.
Smell- Tons of very milky chocolate that is lightly sweet and quite nice. Cocoa and vanilla seem to get stronger and stronger. The coffee isn't as strong as the chocolate but it's far from weak. The roast is dark and toasted. Nice nose for sure.
Taste- Starts with a lightly sweet double chocolate brownie batter that is raw and earthy. The coffee isn't by any means over-the-top (which I prefer) but it is a main component of the flavor (aka acceptable). Toasted coconuts and molasses hide somewhere amongst the licorice and vanilla. Although the vanilla may not necessarily be the strongest of the four aforementioned flavors, I think it's what ties everything together (It's the rug). Finishes with a bitter coffee roast and a bit of citrusy hops.
Mouthfeel- Medium feel with a sort of crisp body that's a bit acidic with a very light tingly carbonation.
Drinkability- Really solid brew here that I enjoyed a lot. The flavors are all really big and work really well together. Definitely my favorite of the coffee brews that aren't dominated by coffee (which is how I'd rather have them). Good stuff and I finally found a Mikkeller brew worth the money! Thanks for introducing Matt!

Pouring it out of the bottle, it looks almost like oil. In the glass the appearance is black with lots of carbonated bubbles & a cafe au lait 3-finger head. Lots of lacing.

The smell is strong of roasted, expensive coffee, sweet malts, and oatmeal. The taste is bitter from the strong roasted coffee, there's also some sweet chocolate & vanilla flavors. Mouthfeel is thick but slightly acidic.

This is a very drinkable stout--flavorful & not too filling.

Served at TJs Everyday in a tulip glass

Pours black and beautiful, with a thick brown head

Lots of coffee in the nose, but also vanilla, chocolate, malt, with an overall roast unifying note

While the coffee is there, it does not destroy every other flavor, including plum, chocolate, toffee, and some other fruit

Lightly carbonated, easy in the mouth, not too thick but with some substance

From notes 2-22-09

Done horizontally with Dogfish Head World Wide Stout, Southern Tier Choklat, Redhook Double Black, Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast, Avery Mephistopheles, and New Holland Night Tripper.

Eye: By far the best head formation and retention of the six as well as the lacing. The head here is about a full finger and is a muddy tan in color. Texture of the head is more foamy than anything, I'll not call it creamy.

Nose: Acrid and very black aroma. Burnt and smokey. Potentcy of this one's aroma is medium strength. So far this has the most complex nose so far, pretty good mix of aromas and all of decent potentcy. I would like something a bit more than these real dark burnt, black, acrid and smokey aromas though.

Tongue: Chocolate flavor with dry roasted grain flavor as well, coffee as well, as in coffee beans, this became aparrent after drinking the Redhook. Hints at quick moving dark fruit. Lots of highliy kilned malt floating around in this one. Hops too, not distinct enough to distinguish characteristics such as floral, citrus, etc... but enough to say that this one has hop flavor. Overall not quite as rich as the Avery. Same general fruitiness as in the Night Tripper. Leaves a smokey and burnt flavor in the mouth for the aftertaste.

edit: of the six beers here the most difficult to drink were the World Wide Stout, Avery Mephistopheles, and New Holland Night Tripper. After coming back to the beers once done with the tasting, these three had alcohol in the foreground, the most prevalant....making them sippers.

Feel and Drinkability: Lighter in body with higher carbonation than the others. Not heavy or thick feeling. Yet satisyfing all the same. It fits with what the rest of the beer is. Easier to drink than some of the bigger brews in this tasting.
