Large shared bottle.

Aroma and flavor have little besides coffee. Medium brown body with a poor head and a lot of sediment that sinks to the bottom.

O: a sbetter ubstitute for cold coffee than for a fine Imperial Stout.

Poured into a teku and created a nice foam head. Unfortunately, compared to some of the other big stouts, this has a very boozy taste @ 13%. You pick up the alcohol on the nose and lacks the coffee and chocolate flavor to balance and counteract the booze. Another average job by Mikkeller.

Pitch black with a thick and creamy brown head.

Aroma is sweet with cherry, coffee, and has some warmth to it.

Sticky sweet on the lips and ample bitterness. Fruit flavors stands out well on the taste. Roasty coffee. It's got some heat to it.

Luxurious feel on the tongue as this smooth brew glides down the gullet. Not full bodied.
