A little sweet, probably honey, and definitely a little vanilla

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.
