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.

Very dark brown colour with a small dark tan head. Good.

Coffee and roast aroma with mild soy sauce and a slight herbal note.

Good roast flavour with lots of black coffee and a touch of malt. Mild hops. Nicely balanced.

Medium body with moderately-high carbonation. Good.

A crisp, dry, roasty stout with some coffee flavour but not as much coffee as expected.

I was lucky enough to finally try this after a recent trade. The decision to crack it open was a good one.

This stout blend pours a dark black with no brown/red hue to be seen. It pours with a luscious head which lasts for a bit. After the head recedes it leaves an inch and a half right around the glass. It has an aroma of dark chocolate cherry cordials. For the taste, bitter dark chocolate, ash, scorched coffee, and light cherry in the background. As for mouthfeel it is a bit over carbonated, but after it sits it becomes very smooth. Overall, this beer is pretty good, but it leaves more to be offerred. I think the burntness it has is slightly overpowering, but it is still a good beer. I think the Weasel gets overpowered by the roasted characters of the Fredickersens. But still a decent stout.

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.

Pours black as black gets, impenetrable. Head is ochre; small bubbles and retains excellently. Fed by steady stream of carbonation, with great bead patterns up the glass. Lace is thick and cradles the beer like a precious orb that contains the essence of creation. Just beautiful.

Intense booze whiff hits the nose immediately. As I acclimatise, I get huge chocolatey aroma and a lovely rich spicy coffee aroma. Dark espresso with lots of aniseed, berries and orange peel. Still get that ethanoic whiff through it all though and that could be toned down a tad.

Taste is intense indeed. Huge dark roasty bitterness upfront with strong cocoa-rich chocolate, pepperberries and star anise. Develops a dryness complicated by spice on mid, then huge coffee notes added at the back, big pepper and dark coffee with just a hint of honey as well. Pleasant, but I feel there could be more sweetness to counteract the hot spice of the weasel coffee a bit. It's really quite a hot palate with a bit of a burning sensation.

I actually feel the carbonation as well which inplies it's either a bit thin in the body or just overcarbonated. The heat may just come from the weasel coffee, not the alcohol so much.

Overall a pleasant drop to finish the night. In truth I would prefer to be sharing this bottle with a couple of mates rather than tackling it alone, but it's still manageable and enjoyable.

Another Mikkeller collaboration which im glad to be able to sample and it pours a dark jet cola hue with nice carbonation that leaves behind a two finger mocha laced head and not much lacing,the smells are roasted coffee,dark malts,dark bitter chocolate and a tiny tinge of alcohol,it has an above medium bodied mouthfeel which feels quite filling yet not and is well carbonated and the flavour is pretty much like the smell with tastes of roasted dark malts,dark expresso,smoked wood and finishes with a dark chocolate bitterness,overall its nice and enjoyable without blowing you away definately one for winter though.

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.
