Picked up a 25cl bottle from Dranken Geers in Ghent.
Poured into a snifter.
Wow, this is a thick black motor oil black looking stout. It has a dark mocha colored head that goes back to one finger in minutes.
Lots smells on the nose. Sweetness of dark fruits, coffee and dark malts. Makes me want to drink it.
Tastes are all that the nose promised. Coffee and dark roasted malts upfront and a bit of bitterness.
Medium to full mouthfeel decent amount of carbonation. Full flavors linger around for a while.
This is nothing short of a fantastic stout. One of the best I've ever had. This is one you'd seek out.

As mentioned previously, the current label has George Foreman with a black eye gritting his teeth in front of a backdrop of thin white stripes in between alternating blue and red stripes. The label also boasts a modest 12.12% ABV.
A: Thick black syrupy goodness with a slight head that appears dark tan, even brown. Tipping it back when drinking it, it looks like iodine running down the glass. Lacing consists of small dots of head that dissipates quickly. A very nice looking beer, but I'd love just a little bit more head retention and lacing on a Russian Imperial Stout.
S: A very pleasant aroma of sweet coffee malts, some dark fruits, and hints of booze.
T: Lots of roasted malts on the palette. Coffee and bitter chocolate notes persist, with some dark candied fruits, and I pick up like a hint of marshmallow.
M: Good mouthfeel, but could perhaps have a bit more chew, be that may just be personal preference. But it leaves a moist mouth and I like that.
O: A well-crafted beer that packs the punch that Mikkeller is known for. This beer will knock you out if you have twin newborns that keep you up all night... and you are in med school... at the end of exam week... All at the same time... Yes it happened to me, George Foreman/boxing puns intended.

Bottle from Tipples. Pours pitch black with a super creamy dark brown head that lightens up as it grows. Aroma of lots of chocolate sauce, a hint of anise, and mild roastiness. Flavor is a massive hit of bittersweet chocolate sauce, a good bit of bitter roast to balance, a little smoke, and a slight twinge of anise. Huge thick viscous mouthfeel, low to medium carbonation, sticky. This is one of the best non-BA stouts I have had. Awesome stuff.
