4.63/5  rDev +7.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

500 ml bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Pours black as night with a thick tan head that holds its own nicely. Lacing is sticky and coats the sides of the glass.

S: A little off when first poured. All alcohol at first, but as the beer warms, the coffee really stands out. Other aromas include chocolate, a hint of vanilla, and toasted bread.

T: Coffee is dominant, with caramel, chocolate, and just a touch of vanilla. Dark fruits and a touch of walnut thrive in the middle, and the beer finishes with a dry, slightly bitter tone.

Notes: Full-bodied, viscous, and extremely complex, Mikkeller may have reached their apex with this brew. At 10.5% ABV, it's very easy to drink, and tasty as all Hell. This stuff is awesome, and if I happen to come across more I will definitely be stocking up. Perhaps my new favorite stout brewed with coffee.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

Bottle poured into a standard pint glass.

A: Pretty much black, but with some slight ruby highlights. The por dropped a one finger head that faded to a thin rim and didn't leave any lace.

A: Bitter coffee, black and roasted malt. Notes of chocolate, vanilla, and earth. Small caramel note followed by slight notes of wood.

T: Chocolate, vanilla, caramel, and robust coffee. The coffee is very bitter, so the combination of the dark roast with the apperant hop bite makes for a very bitter, dry finish.

M: Oatmeal stouts always have a creamy, full mouthfeel, and this one is no different.

O: I thought this was a very well crafted beer. I did however think there was too much bitterness. The coffee flavor is very nice, but the alcohol comes through a bit much. Very good, but could've been great. Skal.

Mikkell Beer Geek Brunch Weasel
1 pt .9oz bottle poured into a mug
No born on date or other distinguishing numbers

A: Pours a viscous, oily, opaque jet black, with 2 fingers of dense mocha colored head, with good retention, taking a few minutes to dissipate down to half a fingers width that remains throughout the drink. Leaves no appreciable lacing, but still a damn pretty beer.

S: Coffee, milk chocolate, and dark chocolate, with a subtle smoky character as well. Pretty standard aroma for a coffee/mocha stouts. I wasn’t blown away by the scent but it is quite pleasant.

T: A unique sweetness upfront that I can’t really put my finger on, followed by chocolate and expresso roast coffee on the backend. There is also a strong bitterness on the backend which I think goes along very nicely with the mocha flavors. The coffee and milk chocolate leave a pleasant lingering aftertaste with each sip. I wouldn’t say that palate profile is all that complex, but it is damn tasty.

M/D: So smooth and incredibly easy to drink. Medium bodied with low carbonation and a slick oily mouthfeel. No hint of the double digit ABV.

O: Overall, a pretty great brew. Beautiful in the glass, easy to drink, and quite delicious. Up there with my all time favorite stouts. The one drawback is the price, running $14 for a pint sized bottle. Because of that I don’t think it’s a beer I will drink often, but I do think it would make a fantastic breakfast/brunch beer when you want to spoil yourself every now and again.

Poured from a 500 ml. bottle into a Weyerbacher tulip...

A - Pours a deep black, almost coffee like color. A nice one finger dark mocha, almost burnt sienna, color head tat recedes to a nice lacing of the same color.

S - Very roasty malts and roasted coffee right up front. With those same notes comes a nice fruoty smell mixed with some sort of warming spice notes. Nice notes of cream and chocolate appear at the end of the nose along with more roasted malts.

T - Strong, rich and sweet roasted coffee flavor right up front. There is also a fruit flavor coming through mixing quite nicely with the coffee; it is almost a light blueberry flavor. Some nice spice in there as well although I'm not sure what it is. Nice chocolate, molasses and slight vanilla to round out the profile

M - Slick, but still nice and creamy on the palate. Full bodied beer, although a bit less than other oatmeal stouts I have encountered. Very little carbonation.

D - Probably one of the best coffee stouts I have ever encountered and was definitely worth seeking out to try the infamous "poop beer." It was quite a palate smasher, so I think one bottle was all I needed. Will definitely be searching this one out again soon.

Pours deep black, nearly impenetrable, with dense three fingers worth of head that settles to a very thick cap. The lacing is impressive, leaving ring after ring behind.

Smell; dark chocolate and coffee are very evident, as well as some hints of a port like fruitiness and alcohol.

Taste; starts off with bittersweet chocolate and black cherries, which quickly fade to espresso and and dark bread. There's an almost smokey flavor through the middle, and the alcohol that was present in the nose is barely detectable in the flavor. Between the coffee, dark bread and smokey flavors this comes off as one of the most savory beers I've had in a long time.

Mouthfeel is full bodied, bordering on luscious, with a thick, smooth carbonation.

I'm always a bit apprehensive when it comes to some of the more hyped beers, but this one completely lived up to it.

The weasel shit beer has sat on my beer shelf for awhile because its weasel shit beer. This poured black as hell with a super chunky/frothy/brown head. Only the slightest red color peeks out from the darkness at the corner of the glass. Aroma is super rich. The alcohol and oat flavor stands out but there are nice hints of brownie, dark chocolate, and roasted coffee. Flavor is super rich but at the same time quite dry and bitter. Oat flavor is more subtle than in the aroma. Chocolate flavor dominates. Feel is fairly smooth and creamy(a little less thick than I would prefer).
Very drinkable.

This was the last beer of my last beer-taste evening with PapaEugene. This evening, our beer selection mainly consisted out of (autumn) bock beers, but I wanted to finish with something heavier, something potentially exceptional. Bottle bought at the Molen Brewery.
Poured into a sniffer. The beer pours fantastic black color, with a very dark brown long lasting head. Lacing was nice and sticky. Wow...

Smell: Alcohol (well, this beer is 11%), burned malts, strong coffee, cacao (dark chocolate) and liquorish.

Taste: Sweet-salty up front (cacao and liquorish). In the middle some mild sourness (citrus) and hops. The aftertaste is dry bitter coffee.

Mouthfeel: Extremely creamy, more body than an espresso coffee. Medium carbonation.

Overall: What a beer, this is surely one of the better Imperial stouts I had recently. Highly recommendable.

A- Inky black with a frothy medium-brown head.

S- Rich burnt coffee beans, light vanilla and chocolate,ash, and a whiff of alcohol and hops.

T- Amazing coffee flavors, smoke, chocolate and cookie, noticable hoppy finish adding depth.

M- Full bodied with soft, creamy carbonation with a slightly astringent feel in the finish.

D- This(with a few others) takes coffee(beer) to new levels. More integrated than geek breakfast.

A- Takes a more aggressive approach to generate the desired creamy froth I associate with a cap. perfect lacing, good retention time. Deep, milk chocolate head sits above the inky darkness you come to expect at the bare minimum. Low carbonation visible, very low.

S- Something wild about this beer. Insane the memories it brings up. I'm instantly brought back to the wilderness of the Ozarks. Something wild and wooded. Bit of a gamey funk that you smell in petting zoos. Some faint vanilla-like sweetness. An astringency that can only be ethanol wafting out of the glass. Bitter on the second half that I'm assuming is the coffee coming out.

T- AMAZING! Holy shit. Opens a sweetness you don't find often at all. Its dark fruits and berries bursting on the palate. Following this is a sweet vanilla and... maple? I'm tasting maple in the middle that I'm excited to find there. Some milk sugars coming forth somehow, and a finish that is a bit roasted grain, bitter coffee, and again petting zoo funk.

M- So juicy. After every sip my mouth waters and salivation goes into overdrive. This is noticed right after your mind is blown with cream. Silky, too. Full bodied, lingers strongly with bitter residues.

D- It isn't the most strong coffee beer, but it is a damn good beer. It is probably one of the most unique ones I've had in a long time. I'm shocked there is so much funk from just a simple ingredient. However, it is amazingly good. Talk about the surprise of the last week.
