I really love coffee beers and I think Mikeller make some of the best out there.

I had to pour this into a tulip glass. These beers usually have such a nice bouquet of smell that you would just loose it in a regular glass. This beer is dark, real dark. The head even had a malt chocolate color to it. Not a lot of head forms during the pour some does hang out though for a bit and looks a little like pancake batter. The smell is great. The bitterness of the coffee mixed with the hops is just perfect. Wow okay so the first sip is a lot of hop. I was totally not expecting that. The smell really masks the amount of hop character in this beer. As with most of my experience with hoppy beers as I progress through the beer the hop flavor lessens and I begin to taste other parts of the beer I just couldn't at first. Towards the end of my first glass I began to taste the coffee creeping back and man this beer really started to shine. There is a nice little bubbly burn from the carbonation. The overall mouth feel is nice. The beer is rather light on the palate for being so dark.

This beer is deceptive all around. I thought it smelled well balance between the coffee and the hops. Turns out their is a lot of hop flavor that really competes with the coffee. The beer didn't form a big head yet there was a decent amount of carbonation. Then its dark and the overall mouth feel is medium bodied. Tricky Tricky Mikkeller! Overall this is a really good brew. I loved every sip. While this is not my favorite beer geek but still better than most other coffee beers out there. Pick one up and feel free to drink it anytime; kind of like how breakfast can be eaten at any time.
