George poured into a snifter at EightBall Brewery.
A - The brew is black as midnight with a small skim of off white mocha head.
S - Th aroma is of dark chocolates, heavy roasted malt and little alcohol.
T - The flavor is nice with dark roasted malts, dark fruits and some chocolates. Mid palate getting some alcohol with more dark malts. On the finish it has more dark fruits with more alcohol than I would like.
M - Smooth medium to full mouthfeel, with medium to low carbonation.
O - The alcohol keeps the score from being a true classic. It's still worth a try! Cheers!

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.

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.

the new release go george has different labeling and is listed at 12.12% abv like some of its variants are here. its great beer, rich and dark brown with almost an full inch of tan head with excellent lasting power and perfect spider ring lacing as it drinks on down. its nose is robustly malty, dark cocoa, burnt barley, and even dried blueberry all come into play. i hardly get booze, but i get some spirit flavors, earthy and smokey scotch, vanilla kissed bourbon, and even charred oak, but its not barrel aged. the alcohol is so subtle and the body is so big, this drinks creamy and slightly bitter, but scary easy for how strong it really is. an expensive little bottle of beer, but mikkeller has proven time and time again to be one of the kings of stout, and for that i will always try news beers that come out, especially dark ones. george has layers, it has class, and its huge. bitter chocolate on the finish and a wonderfully dynamic grain bill thats put together brilliantly. definitely worth a try, and it has been really pumped to try the barrel aged variations of this. calvados? yes please!
