4.26/5 rDev +2.9%
Poured from a 33cL bottle into a St Bernardus goblet. Brewed at Lervig Aktiebryggeri.
A: PItch black and viscous, with virtually no head.
S: Deep, dark, and rich. Foreboding. Molasses. Licorice. Berries. Roasted malt. Quintessential imperial stout.
T: This good. With a brightness belied by the strength. Surprisingly tart and spritely, with huge malt base and generally robust, stouty flavor. Slightly sticky sweetness, but only at times. Well-done, Mikkeller.
M: Just a tad thin.
O: Exceptionally done. Highly recommended. This guy knows how to brew a stout.

330ML bottle poured into stone snifter. No bottled on date to be found
A- Jet black with some thickness. Identical to used motor oil out of my V8 hemi. Little mocha head that sticks around.
S - Strong roastiness, coffee and some dark chocolate. Slight hint of dark candied fruits. Dark brown sugar and molasses.
T - Lots of roast and bakers chocolate with some coffee. Certainly follows the nose.
M - solid mouthfeel. Full but not overbearing and isn't super cloying for the ABV.
O - a very good RIS from mikkeller.

330ml poured into a snifter and enjoyed solo at the end of a good day.
Appearance - Inky black pour, a very small brown head forms and quickly turns to a ring and slight cap. Lowly carbonated?/ominous.
Smell - Roast/dark chocolate punch, some licorice and dark fruits there as well. Some alcohol (understandable for the ABV) and very slight spicy tones. Decent strength, straight-up big scary stout scent.
Taste - Big roast+char with dark chocolate/fudgy sweetness underlaying, dark fruit, some pepper, some molasses; rich but quite low sweetness. Some hop bitterness there. Some warming alcohol but seems less boozy than the nose, and not bad for 12%.
Mouthfeel - Low-but-there carbonation, mouthfeel is oily with decent thickness to it, not crazy hefty. A little boozy but not a detraction.
Overall - Great sippin' beer, beast of a stout.

Black in the glass with thin medium brown colored head, tin ring left behind. Improbably a few delicate patches of lace hold up. Smell: chocolate liquor, prune, raisin, espresso, brown bread. Taste: syrupy dark chocolate, roast, light earth, pine note, lots of dark fruit - fig, prune; anise note in the finish. Full bodied, syrupy and slick with light but effectively creamy carbonation. A beast; nice!
