Long time want. Thank you to ygtbsm94 for sharing. Brad, you are still the man.

The beer is dark brown with a broken, bubbly, beige head. Aromas of dark roast, distinctly European. Chocolates and roast. Booze, oak, Euro malt profile. Absolutely fantastic flavor. Instant 5. The best flavor of any Mikkeller beer I have yet had. Oh my. I'll never forget this beer - it's that good.

On tap at CBC 2013. For me, the winning beer of the festival!
A: Pours black, opaque, with a thin mocha, leaves some lacings, then a thin collar. Looks like a strong espresso.
S: Smell is on chocolate and vanilla, rich, powerful and decadent. Complex also with aromas reminding of dark cherries cake or a Black Forest gateau, eaten with a pecan pie, with also nuts and hazelnuts aromas. Sweet, with also vanilla sugar. Mind blowing.
T: Taste is on coffee, chocolate and vanilla. Also woody, with cherries and brown sugar, not oxydated but rich and complex. Finishes smooth like a cream cake.
M: Velvety, smooth and bright, a bit oliy, slightly sticky after a few sips. The alcohol content is very very well integrated (this beer tastes like a 10% ABV at most).
O: I'm very very glad to have been able to try this. This is far better than the 2007 Bourbon Barrel Aged version I've had from the bottle the previous year. I would have been reluctant to look after such a rare treat then, but this is actually worth the try. Actually, one of the best imperial Stout I've been given the chance to sip.

Glad to have come across this one even more glad that there was such a cool group of guys that helped me land it.

A: Pours a nice rich deep dark black hue with a nice mocha colored head. Some retention and a bit of lace.

S: Rich and sweet. Notes of chocolate and dark fruits. Hints of roast with rich candy like tones.

T: Rich and earthy. Roast and deep dark fruits. A mild tone of sourness hides beneath chocolate. Hints of mild smoke and a touch of booze.

M: Full bodied, rich and roasty.

D: Great too ad it was most likely the last bottle on earth.

Bottled at Horsens Beerfestival. It looks as the original sin, topped off by a small brown head. The aroma is just wonderful, with chocolate, black tea, tobacco, alcohol, beef-stock notes and lots of hops. Not unbalanced though. It has a hint of sourness in the flavor, along with alcohol, chocolate, tea, mocha, hops and all things good. Full body with a drying sensation. It finishes off with alcohol, hops and coffee-bitterness. There’s also some lactic notes all the way, not to talk of the nice aromas and flavors from the hops. A wonderful beer that deserves a better faith than just beeing an experiment. Thx for the tasting Mikkel & Kristian. (061028)
