From my generous brother who picked this up in Denmark. Prost, John. This was served at 55degress into a half acre snifter.
pitch black body with a dark tan head of impressive depth, retention and lacing, especially for the ABV. Damn near perfect.
Smells of roasted, almost burnt, malts and coffee, with dark belgian cacao. The aroma isn't strong but rather is quite delicate. A little bit of fig/plus/raisin/pear smell.
Taste is of roasted malts and delicate chocolate with a good deal of refined cacao. Impressive chocolate on this beer. A great deal of bitterness, and a huge winner for those like me who like bitter hoppy stouts. The coffee is not as dominant a flavor as I expected but is quite delicate and perfect. The ABV is very well hidden.
Mouthfeel is as good as it gets. Carbonation is spot on - may be a little under carbonated for some people, but this is really perfect. Coats the tongue, sticky and syrupy, dry sticky finish, everything I want out of a stout.
I want to drink this over and over again. Easily the best non-barrel-aged coffee stout I've ever had. Still in the top 5 of best stouts I've ever had. Love this beer, get it if you can, it is a delicacy.

A- Pours pitch black with a three finger mocha head that leaves intricate foamy lacing.
S-Well there is no shit smell. All jokes aside, roasted chocolate malts and bitter coffee goodness.
T- No shit taste. Rich chocolate backbone with a background coffee presence that is unmatched by similar styles. I can taste some sweetness from the oats as well, and the 10.9% abv is hidden well behind the complex accumulation of flavors.
M-The oats lend a creaminess that makes the mouthfeel very full bodied. Carbonation is subtle and spot on for this syle.
O- This is one of my favorite beers. I was hesitant when I heard "weasel poo coffee" from the liquor store sales associate. I was blown away by the complexity of the taste and smell on this brew. Happy as could be with this wonderful Mikkeller creation, a must try for curious stout drinkers.
