5/5 rDev +23.2%
Poured from a bottle purchased at Beertopia in Omaha.
A: Pitch black with a tan head.
S: Dark roasted coffee beans, the slightest amount of citrus and pine.
T: Perfect. Starts off with a creamy, mild coffee flavor that transitions into the most incredible hop finish. Absolutely brilliant.
M: Coats the mouth...carbonation is just right. Medium body.
O: Probably my favorite beer that I have experienced so far. Everything about this was wonderful from start to finish and it is such a disappointment to see that beautiful tan residue on the glass where an outstanding beer once was. If you see this beer anywhere for any price BUY IT! You will not be let down!

Served in a snifter, pours a super tan espresso like head with a deep rich black base. Little to almost no lacing.
Smells of caramel and huge coffee notes
Taste is even better with huge huge coffee notes and with the creamy sweet head this stout def delivers
Little boozy flavor with the 7.5 abv
I cant really taste any hops but you know they are there adding little bitterness to this stout
i would buy this one again and again

Reviewed from notes.
Pours a beautiful ebony with a brown half a finger of head. Dissipates rather quickly. Surprised by the look of this that it's not actually a stout.
Aroma is amazing, sweet matly, burnt biscuit, heavy coffee, dark chocolate. Slight hop aroma in there somehow coming through. Just great.
Very delicious. Chocolate and coffee are most prevalent. Sweetness abound! Hops are on the back end and very subtle at that. No date on the bottle so hops could have faded a bit. Tastes more like a hoppy stout than a black IPA but it's still great.
Very thick and rich, stout-like again. Aftertaste has a lingering bitterness that rounds it out nicely.
This was my first try at Mikkeller and I'm so glad that I know how good they can be. Probably the best black IPA I've had although it's more like a stout. But really great stuff.

Picked up a bottle of this while in Charleston for a spell. Visited my old haunt over at the Charleston Beer Exchange where the mustaches are absolutely untamed.
A - Pours opaque, deep black with a thin khaki head that quickly dissipates.
S - Faint hint of hops with a backing of earthy cocoa and dark roasted malts. Little bit of coffee in there too.
T - This is an absolutely delightful and hop packed stout. Really more of what I'd call an imperial black ale. Citrus and piny hops up front with a cocoa and coffee backing that finishes smooth.
M - Nice, well rounded.

A - Really, really nice opaque brown/black almost sludgy, one finger deep tan head and some sticky lacing
S - pine, centennial hops, roasted perk you up kind of coffee, coca, roasty malts, more coffee and hops
T - HOPS, very dark chocolate, roasted everything, earth, foliage, terrior, wood, brown sugar and a super nice punch you in the face coffee
M - full bodied, balanced!, wonderful complexity, medium acidity and a long wonderful finish
D/O - Uber drinkable. Tons of flavor, refreshing, creamy, yummy and over the top awesome. If you don't like this, you may be an idiot!
Final Thoughts - at $11 a pop and a 7.5 abv, this is expensive, but awesome, awesome beer
