375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2013 bottle.

Appearance - Black body. No head. A few bubbles. Very leggy.

Smell - Fudge. Raisins. Deep roast. Booze.

Taste - Very dynamic stout flavors. Chocolate. Molasses. Fudge. Moves into deep roast. Bitter coffee and some burnt malts.

Mouthfeel - Medium low carbonation. Very heavy and sweet.

Overall - I was surprised by how good this is. More than just an over-sweet monster of a stout.

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.
