Bottle from the Bishop Arms in Malmö
A: Black with a foamy head that leaves a thin film over the beer.
S: Roasted malts, coffee, brown sugar.
T: Espresso, coffee, roasted malts. Earthy bitter hoppy aftertaste.
M: Smooth, oily, quite warming.
O: Nice brew with quite a good length on the palate and very fine coffee flavors.

On-tap at the Mikkeller pub in Copenhagen. This is a combination of Amager's Hr. Frederiksen and Mikkeller's Beer Geek Brunch.
Pours black with a one-finger brown head. The head recedes into a thin layer on top leaving solid lacing.
Smells of rich roasted malts with good amounts of dark chocolate and smooth coffee. As the beer warms the aromas sweeten a bit with hints of blackstrap molasses.
Tastes similar to how it smells. Well-integrated roasted malt flavors work well with sweet molasses and mild amounts of dark chocolate. Midway through the sip hints of leafy hops make an appearance before being overtaken by smooth coffee flavors that carry through to a solidly bitter ending.
Mouthfeel is very good. It's got a nice thickness with grainy carbonation.
Drinkability is also very good. I finished my glass with no problems and could easily have another.
Overall I enjoyed this beer very much however it's to be expected as both the base beers are exceptional. That being said I'm not sure if the combination of the two makes either one better. Either way, it's a tasty beverage and worth a shot.

A - A gorgeously nice brown head, a real stayer with a good structure. The fluid is pitch black like a moonless night in Zeeland.
S - This is how every beer should smell, near perfect combination of wood, peat, booze, chocolate and coffee.
T - Again wood and peat mixed with a light boozyness, real bitter finish though. This should be sold instead of chocolate milk!
M - A smooth carbonation that goes excellent with the taste. A bit thicker would have helped the body this beer with an extra 0.5 point.
O - A real topper, among the best I have tried.

Thanks to Adam who brought something to taste that I'd never even heard of, and a nice surprise it was!
Black with a nice dark khaki head.
Nose is all big, rich and full black chocolate and fresh coffee. Tones of creamed coffee and black coffee/bitter black chocolate.
Mouthfeel is rich, full and inviting. Thick like a coffee/chocolate malt.
Flavors are full, rich and assertive black chocolate/coffee and very inviting.
Could be considered big simple coffee. I find a wonderful rich roasted grain/coffee/black chocolate richness that makes this a delightful big drink.

Had on tap at Max's (from notes 6/21/13)
A: Two words: Pitch black.
S: Tar, malt, burnt, roasty and smokey.
T: Talk about hops. I asked one bartender if they had had this before to see what it tasted like and then I asked the one that served me if she had given me the brunch, which she said she did. This really just tastes like a hoppy IPA. I had some mead, a 2.7%/70 IBU IPA, and a saison before this, but I had water and food between them all. I got almost no regular stout flavors like sweetness or malt. It tasted like a black IPA, and the black component of it is the only stout parts you could taste. It was a bit smokey/roasty, but not like a stout. Also, I got pretty much no coffee, you really have to hunt for it and even then it is but a whisper. You get no alcohol burn either. I got very little aftertaste on this one.
M: Very carbonated and crisp.
O: Is this a stout? It was delicious but unlike any other stout I've had before or can at least remember. It reminds me of what fresh bigfoot is to barleywines, just super hoppy and tastes like a dark, malty ipa with some sweetness. This just tasted like a black IPA. Lower Overall just because of Style.

Drank from my Stella tulip.
A - Pours a very deep Ebony colour, withe a two fingered tanned head that slowly reduces to a thick film that laces.
S - From the bottle some nice peated chocolate aromas. Once poured some vanilla aromas come out with some Whiskey fennols.
T - Up, front some very stark vanilla flavours and followed by some decent peated chocolate flavours, the finish is bitter, smokey and earthy but yet the creamyness is maintained.
M - Full body and a little over carbonated on the finish, but still retains its creamyness.
O - A very solid stout that will leave you wanting more. Thouroughly recommended.

The beer is dark dark brown, has a chestnut head a bit uneven leaving some lacing and curtains.
Smelling intensely sweet and roasted, coffee beans, figs, dates, sausages and some earth nuances.
Sweet brown sugar, syrup, burnt bread and wood, fig marmalade, sweet licorice, dark chocolate, bitter coffee beans.
Little carbonation, a thick body, smooth and oily texture, a dry finish.
Well, undoubtedly a lot of effort has gone into this beer, however now it is a bit unbalanced, too sweet and a bit too bitter. Could improve with storage.
