This bottle is from 2008. No date on the bottle.

Pours pretty much jet black with a thick tan head. Very dense and about as dark tan as I have ever seen.

Intense roasted malt character. Candied fruits come through even though this is starting out very cold.

I would think this imperial stout would have mellowed out a bit over the years but that doesn't appear to be the case. Tons of dark chocolate, molasses, toffee, figs, and obviously a dark roasted coffee. There is a lingering acrid bitterness. I'm not sure if that comes from the hops, roasted malts or the coffee.

Huge mouthfeel. Very viscous. Easy to drink throughout. There is so warming alcohol notes and the 10.9% is evident but doesn't detract from the overall beer. This is just a delicious imperial stout. I need to find a fresh bottle for a good comparison.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter at cellar temperature.

L – Jet black with a 1.5-finger bubbly brown head. Pretty good retention and nice lacing.

S – Huge aroma full of dark malts, lots of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and plums along with a hint of alcohol. Smells phenomenal.

T – Starts off sweet with chocolate, vanilla, plum, and molasses flavors and gradually builds to a great bitter flavor with coffee and dark chocolate notes. Delicious.

F – Full-bodied with not much carbonation, a creamy and velvety smooth mouthfeel, and a bitter and dry finish that builds and builds. Strong coffee and dark chocolate bitterness lingers for a nice amount of time. A throat-warming sensation from the alcohol appears at the finish as well.

O – This beer is delicious. It is a big beer for sure, but still very drinkable with one of the best mouthfeels I’ve ever experienced in an imperial stout. The fact that it’s made with civet coffee makes it that much more intriguing. Great imperial stout.

A-Pours impenetrable shiny black with a gorgeous, tightly constructed dark amber head. A very attractive beer. I watched the head fade away to a thin amber sheen, with intermittent dark patches of tiny, mocha colored bubbles.

S-Chocolate almond biscotti, amaretto, chicory, milky light roast coffee.

T/M-Very hoppy considering the style, but it works. Dry, astringent hoppiness butts up against a mouthful of roasted barley. The roasty bitterness falls off mid-palate, fading into lush, dense coffee flavors. This coffee is very different from what you usually get in a coffee stout. The flavor is very earthy. Makes me want to try a cup of the coffee on its own. Mouth feel is alternately silky smooth and intensely bitter, which does ultimately affect the drinkability.

O-My favorite of the Breakfast series to date.

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.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

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.
