The beer pours an oily black with a thin dark tan head that fizzles out quickly, but not before coating the inner glass with tight carb slowly succumbing to gravity. The nose is burnt caramel, coffee (more pronounced as it warms), chocolate, a little bitterness, and a touch of fruitiness. The taste definitely brings forward a rich coffee bitterness swept over by full bodied sweetness and a lingering bitter-sweet coffee aftertaste. It's got the body I'd expect from a big double stout with modest alcohol, little carbonation, and most of its bitterness derived from the coffee, though there may be a hop component that creeps up in the finish. This is definitely what I expected; big flavors, great coffee highlights, and affordability.

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.
