Another letdown by Mikkeller. Why must you always disappoint? I had big hopes for you, but your dark rich appearance did not match your taste. You were thin, overly carbonated, and dominated by roasted malts. Coffee? I tasted none. Maybe it was the bitter back end that was to be coffee. I will never know. Thanks, but I'll stay with the local breakfast stouts.

Poured into a Due South Brewing Co. snifter. Bottle cap says BF290118

A- Pours a fully opaque black color with a 3/4 inch brown head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and sporadic clusters of surface foam. Thin, semi-resilient lacing streaks down the glass leaving a jagged ring behind on the glass.

S- Wonderful vanilla/chocolate/coffee medley plus some mild hazelnut and caramel.

T- Heavy dark roast with some vanilla and caramel but not as fantastic as the aroma. Moderate bitterness throughout and an alcohol flavor that's somewhat apparent.

M- I was hoping for a bit more creaminess. Mildly sharp from the hops and booze. Medium carbonation and a full body.

O- Super solid. Worth having for the aroma alone.

Poured into a snifter glass. The beer pours black like motor oil with a thin, chocolate brown head that dissipates quickly, leaving only a small lace cap around the edge of the glass. I get plenty of dark roasted coffee on the nose with some chocolate. Those big coffee flavors are there, but are greatly complemented by the dark roasted malt and the smoothness to the mouthfeel the oatmeal brings. Still, this is a very coffee forward stout with only some chocolate flavor. With the smooth mouthfeel and light carbonation, the beer drinks pretty well. Plus at 7.5%, it doesn't have the harsh alcohol feel. This is an excellent beer, but only just so.

Pours a very dark brown, with one finger thick creamy light brown colored head. Settles to a thin ring, a few rings down the glass. Smell: espresso, dark chocolate, earth, almost-burnt bread. Taste: espresso, burnt, earthy, slightly acidic, cocoa. A little bracing with the burnt bitterness, but that's ok! Medium bodied, creamy feel. Very nice.
