375ml white waxed 2013 bottle poured into tulip 3/1/15, cheers kumatmebrew for the signed bottle

A black liquid, thin dark film leaves no lace but some wide legs and color left behind

S chocolate syrup, molasses, smokey fudge, nutty coffee, vanilla, a little booze but nowhere 16%, no where 10% if you want to dwell, not bad for a monster

T some fruit I didn't really pick up on the nose, still lots of dark malt and chocolate, tobacco, earthy notes, sweet but nothing over the top

M syrupy, sticky, just enough bubbles to give it some life, a little heat but not what you'd expect form a 16% monster, some cigar ash on the finish

O plenty going on and drinkable for such a big ass brew, puts you down gently but kicks your ass nonetheless

Not exactly a first thing in the morning, on a empty stomach, before important life events sorta beer but when exactly is the right time to drink a 16% beer?

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.
