Another "Breakfast" brew from Mikkeller, I have enjoyed most. Poured into a tulip from a 22oz bottle. Very dark brown/black in color with med latte colored head, dissipated slowly.
The smell really threw me off. Had to go back and check the label to make sure I had opened an oatmeal stout. Pungent grassy/piny hops on the nose. The aroma tells me this may be the hoppiest stout I've ever had.
Taste; hop presence not as strong on the palate as the nose, but still quite dominant. Bitter, but pleasant coffee notes seem to balance nicely with the hops. After coming up in a temp a bit, the coffee bitterness softens a bit and and some mild hints of choc and burnt caramel fall on the finish.
Missing some of the mouthfeel I enjoy in an oatmeal stout but still quite nice.
Be in the mood for an IPA when you open this or you may not like your first impression. Very interesting brew. Be sure to let it warm a tad for max enjoyment.
