Pours into a tulip a ridiculous squid-ink black. Slight head, not much retention and certainly no lacing. It leaves "legs" down the glass rather than lace.
Heady aroma of bright, acidic citrusy coffee and dense hot fudge. There's a lot of fudge and vanilla. serving as the foil for the coffee. Once again, outstanding aroma.
This beer is perfectly balanced between coffee, char, vanilla, fudge. Not sweet but not difficult in a dry sense either. I think this bottle has been aged at least a year, because there isn't much noticeable alcohol. I know some people think this is hot, but this bottle isn't. As I said, I think it's aged out.
It doesn't have the rich, luxurious feel of an oatmeal stout, but it does develop good viscosity.
Good drinkability, a little better than I thought it would be. Not quite as easy to drink given the ABV as Speedway Stout, but close.

A - This pours jet black in color. A pretty aggressive pour only gives this a half-finger dark tan head. There are some specs of lacing left on the glass.
S - It smells of dark roasted malts, strong coffee, dark chocolate, molasses, and vanilla. I am also getting notes of dates or figs.
T - The taste is of strong roasted coffee, roasted malts, dark chocolate, and some booze. The finish is of bitter roasted coffee. This is a great tasting stout. I really enjoy the strong bitter coffee taste.
M - It has a full body and low carbonation. It has a rich velvety feel to it, and it goes down very easy. There is a slight puckering bitterness here, as well as some alcohol warmth.
D - The drinkability is good here. It is a slow sipper for sure, but the taste is amazing. I really like this beer a lot. I would definitely try this one again.

Poured a 16.9oz bottle into my Boulevard Smokestack chalice. This beer pours a India Ink black, allowing no light to show through. Coupled with a light, 2 inch flat head really makes for a bit of an imposing beer. The head quickly disappears and leaves no lacing as the beer leaves my glass and enters my belly. The aroma is darkly roasted grains, a slight bit of cream and just some faint wisps of coffee. While the coffee is noticeable, its not nearly as strong as I expected it to be. In my opinion, Beer Geek Breakfast has more coffee in the nose. The flavor is much the same. Dark roasted grains dominated the flavor profile, giving it a mild bitter chocolate flavor, mild roasted coffee, and a big alcohol burn that is hidden pretty well with all those big flavors. The mouthfeel, while full, still finishes pretty dry. This is a good beer but for its price tag, I would rather just have a normal Beer Geek Breakfast. They can save the cat poop and I can save some some cash.

I bought this beer because, well, I had to know what cat shit from Southeast Asia tasted like. Appearance is a deep black color, with a quick to form large tan heading, which just so happens to also be quick to fade, leaving a small ring around the glass. I like that it builds up and dies down quickly, I like it. Aroma is very pleasant. I get milk chocolate, an underlying coffee presence, and a sort of earth flavor that melds really beautifully with everything else. Really, the nose gets better and better, maybe that is because of the addition of the poop. Taste is not as astonishingly good as the smell unfortunately but still very tasty. I get burnt coffee beans, hint of earth, bitter chocolate and an aftertaste of marshmallow. Not especially heavy mouthfeel, in fact it feels rather light for the style. Alcohol is not noticeable at all. Where that 10.9% is, I do not know. After sort of disliking the Beer Geek Breakfast, my faith in Mikkeller has been restored with this brew. The smell alone makes it worth buying. I want more.

No clue how old this is, but it was a bit dusty. 500 ml bottle into an over sized wine glass.
A - Pitch black body lets zero light through. 2 finger high mocha head forms and settles to a nice bubbly cap. Great lacing and retention and some alcohol legs produced after swirling.
S - I've never had civet coffee before so I'm a bit inexperienced in its nuances, but the coffee aroma here is roasty but not bitter. It's hard to explain. Very sweet yet roasty coffee and malts which works great against the deep vanilla and dark chocolate notes. Really unique and fantastic.
T - Just as extraordinary as the nose. Sweet vanilla and dark chocolate followed by lightly roasty yet sweetened coffee notes. There is some slightly vinous and fruity red wine notes towards the finish as well. Syrupy and coating, with low carbonation.
O - I'm not a Mikkeller fan at all. After trying three of the B/A black hole beers I gave up on buying there stuff. This bottle was given to me so I went into it rather unbiased of its price tag. But holy crap has my image of them changed. This is a phenomenal stout. I think I prefer BCBCS a bit more in terms of coffee stouts, but this is a huge achievement, I though it was going to beer an average gimmicky beer using one of the most expensive coffee beans, buts its just so damn delicious. Kudos Mikkeller!

amateur review incoming!
Appearance: black and brown with a dark brown translucent edge. Little bit of head that dissipated nicely into the dark pool.
Smell: coffee and stouty malty goodness
Taste: rich coffee and yes, the oatmeal is present. The hops come through as does the malt and it winds up just a well-done good feeling taste. Little hint of alcohol on the aftertaste keeps this from a 5.0
Mouthfeel: Brown with a nice body. Yeah.
Drinkability: the aftertaste and the high abv stop it from perfection but on taste smell and mouthfeel alone this hits as one of the best I've had.
