Poured from a bomber to a sam adams cup

A- near jet black w/ floaties, 1/4" brown head w/ hard pour

S- smokey leather, coffee, dark chocolate, dank hops

T- smoke, dark roast coffee, bitter dark chocolate, pretzels, dank hops, acidic after taste

M- medium body, average carbonation

O- my first Mikkeller, a pretty decent brew. There's something off about the smell/taste that had me checking for a bottling date (there isn't one). Still an enjoyable beer, the smoke and dank hops were a pleasant surprise. Low score on the appearance cuz frankly, she's ugly. I know adding oats sacrafices appearance for a creamier mouthfeel, but i have had prettier beers w/ creamier mouthfeel then this.

Pitch black colour with a nice looking brownish, creamy head which disapperars rather quickly. Nice lacing on the glass. A really good looking imperial stout.
Aroma is full of nice coffee, roasted malts, dark fruits and a nice bitter presence of hops.
Maybe some hints of chocolate.
Taste is big time coffee, roasted flavors and a little smoke with a dry, hoppy bitter finish.
Don`t get many chocolate and sweet flavors in here, maybe at the beginning.
Body is medium to full with a long lasting bitter taste on the palate.

A nice imperial stout you can`t go wrong with this beer if you like creamy, coffee flavors

16.9 oz bottle split and poured into small snifters.

A: Pours black with a 1.5 finger khaki head. Sticks around for a nice long time, leaving some lacing as it dissipates. Always a nice film covering the top.

S: Certainly some coffee upfront. Also a nice roasty dark fruit malt

T: Smooth blend with an overall background of smoke. Can get coffee in it as well as a dark fruity malt. Has the english influence in regard to malt flavors. Some hops make it through the backend.

M: Velvety creamy mouthfeel with low carbonation. Real nice easy drinking feel to it. A little warming.

Overall who cant love a breakfast stout. Paired this with a FBS and it came off smokier with less coffee. Nonetheless an incredible stout that I'd recommend to any coffee beer fan.

12 oz poured into my favorite red coffee cup for breakfast

A: Poured an opaque black inky thick luscious mess. Dark tan head with amazing lacing on my coffee cup. Amazing looking beer.

S: The aroma sneaks up on you from a distance. Nice roast and bitter chocolate with a hint of dark fruits. Also quite a bit of dark roast coffee, perfect for breakfast.

T: Oh yeah, great coffee flavor at the end with deep roastiness and dark bitter chocolate. Definitely a great coffee substitute in the morning, probably on the weekends only though.

M: Nice roast bitterness lingers from the dark malts with a nice dry finish that makes you want to go for another sip immediately after.

O: A great looking beer with an amazing aroma and great taste. A bit bitter but hey, this will wake you up and get you going on a slow morning. Especially while brewing like I am right now.

16.9oz bottle pour

A- pours a oily slick black appearance... slight khaki colored head that reduces to a sheet over the beer... minimal lacing to the snifter

S- big whiffs reveal grounded coffee as the dominant trait...roasted barley, dried tobaccoo leaf, slight leather in the back, bitter sweet chocolate... sweet oatmeal

T- big hits of well pronounced coffee, tobacco chew, roasted barely... semi bitter sweet chocolate, kind of creamy chocolate.. lingering coffee twang on the taste buds

M- this is were this beer loses me, medium to thinner body, not to much chew for big stout as this is interpreted.. decent carbonation... dry bitterness for a clean finsih

O- this is a good brew for coffee lovers, it hits that spot... but as far as a well rounded oatmeal coffee stout the mouth feel loses me... I so much want to love this beer though... maybe some age will throw some difference in this, or maybe I'm just saying this to make myself feel better
