3.58/5  rDev -6.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

500ml brown bottle shared with friends and poured into a matching Mikkeller teku. This bottle in question was the stronger Euro edition drank side by side with the barrel aged brunch weasel.

The brew pours black in color with a finger of dark brown head. Some patchy lace sticks to the glass and a swirl revives about a finger effortlessly back to the surface.

The aroma is earthen with notes of roast, citrus, burnt to char quality and a mild fruity alcohol note accented just a bit perhaps by the barrel aging. Overall not bad smelling but the overall impression of barrel aging is quite subtile.

The flavor is roasty with notes of bitter coffee and earth. Some chocolate to cocoa quality emerges with more sips along with a mild citrus inclusion. Raw oak is present giving the only notion of this being barrel aged. Some mild sulfur quality persists into the aftertaste which is a bit distracting.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. The inclusion of sulfur was a bit distracting and the oak aging was too subtle in my opinion. It is a decent brew but nothing exciting and not worth the inflated price. The chunks of gelatin that plopped into our glasses mid-way through the pour was a huge disappointment. When you pay this much for a beer, it should be beer in the bottle not gelatin that makes half the people partaking in the bottle cringe and not want a pour.

A: poured a dark as night black in color with a thin brown head that left a little lacing sticking to the glass.

S: plenty of roasted malts were present upfront in the aroma with a little coffee, some good chocolate notes, burnt char character, it had vanilla and brown sugars coming through but with signs of wood.

T: the roastiness was just as potent as the aroma but with more vanilla molasses sweetness, plenty of burnt char notes, mild coffee character, a little bourbon barrel booze and of course great chocolate flavor.

M: the brew was medium to full in body with a fair amount of carbonation which had a sweet, char, barrel bourbany, roasty, chocolatey, and chewy finish.

O: been hearing a lot of good things about this beer and sure enough it was solid. glad I got to try it finally. Good lookin out beezler

Bottled 2009, European version though I cant remember who sent me this...Thank You though!

Jet black, one and a half fingers of tan head, some nice thick rings of lace. Smell is full on deeply roasted malt, burnt at points, bourbon, vanilla and chocolate, still a surprising amount of coffee grind/bean presence in here as well. Taste has lots of coffee up front, roasty with lots of vanilla and bourbon, slight alcohol burn but pretty well concealed, some chocolate and char in the finish. Lightly carbonated, medium-full body, good full feel. Solid stuff and a very good BA coffee stout, another well executed big beer from Mikkeller.

Black in color with light carbonation and a tan head. Light to moderate bourbon aroma. Notes of vanilla, oak, char, and roasted malt. Nice dark chocolate and molasses notes. Not that much coffee. Plenty of roast, charred oak, vanilla, and dark chocolate on the palate. Moderate coffee, light bourbon, and a mild molasses sweetness. Very good, one of the top Mikkeller beers I’ve had.

Europe edition clocking in at 10.7%. Batch 463, bottled on October 22nd, 2009 and best before the same date in 2014. Thanks to Jeffo for the hookup. Served in a tulip.

A - Creamy mocha foam settles to a thin cap, thick collar, and splotchy lace. Black body, with a glint of brown at the edges. Very viscous and oily.

S - Tons of bourbon character in the aroma, along with oak, vanilla, slightly stale coffee grounds, chocolate, fruity berry notes, and hints of smoke and black olive. Distinctly Scandinavian in flavor profile.

T - Taste has a bit more roast to it, with mild char and smoke amid the coffee, chocolate, bourbon, and oak. Barrel character grows into the finish, and there's some moderate roast bitterness too, but this is fairly restrained for a Mikkeller offering. Still, nowhere as sweet as the aroma suggests.

M - Smooth, medium body, with a chewy, sticky texture, and lower by active carbonation. Some tannic oak and gritty coffee grounds in the finish. Definitely drinks a lot bigger than the base beer, but the 10.7% doesn't stick out too much.

D - Surprisingly enjoyable. I actually preferred this to the Beer Geek Brunch (Bourbon Edition), even though I like that base beer far more than this one. Curious how the American version compares, but would gladly drink the EU edition again. Still, best shared among friends.

500ml bottle. Labeled "Barrel Aged Breakfast". 7.5% ABV. Served in a tulip.

Pours solid dark brown, almost black. Forms a big three finger mocha colored head. Dissipates slowly and lightens in color. Big chunks of lacing left in glass.

Aroma of roasted and chocolate malt. Coffee. A bit of floral hops. I'm not detecting any real barrel presence. Maybe a little bit of oak. There is also a slight band-aid tinge.

A lot more coffee in the flavor than the nose. Roasted bitterness along with a touch of the band-aid I got in the nose. Again, I'm not getting any real barrel presence in the flavor. Maybe a tang from the bourbon and wood. Hop bitterness lingers in the finish and aftertaste.

Body is fairly thin, below medium. Carbonation is mild but supportive.

Decent, but not stunning.

1 pint 9 oz. bottle poured into a Duvel Tulip Style Glass. US version 7.5% alcohol content. Almost completely black in color, slight dark red/brown highlights on the edges where the liquid gets a little thinner, but pretty opaque the whole way through. Dark tan, close to brown colored head, decent lacing and glass retention. Good looking beer.

Smell is good. Much like the original, coffee is a dominant feature. In addition to the coffee there are tones of dark chocolate. Bourbon hints and undertones here as well. Nothing too overwhelming though, it's just there. Not bad, just not very strong.

Taste is a step up. like most Mikkeller beers there's a nice malt backbone here. Fresh dark brewed coffee with more dark fudgey chocolate, the 2 complement each other very nicely. Bourbon a little stronger in the flavor than the smell, not too hot tones of it, not too overwhelming, sort of sweet.

Mouthfeel is another step up, which this area is usually a staple high quality marker with Mikkeller beers. Full flavored and well balanced while being soft and delicate in the feel, quit an accomplishment. Good carbonation level and silky smooth the whole way through. Really just a good beer. Recommended seeking out as most Mikkeller brews. Drink as fresh as possible and serve at room temp. Hope to try the UK version someday!

Thanks to foofaa for sharing this one with us.

A - Pours jet black with a small half finger tall tan head leaving spotty lace down the glass.

S - Smells of rich coffee, chocolate, warm bourbon, dark charred wood and some sugary sweetness comes in as it warms.

T - Starts off with quite a bit of dark roast up front slowly giving way to a mix of fresh brewed coffee, chocolate, light smoke, and some warm bourbon. Pretty smooth initially growing a bit watery as it sits in the glass. Finish is roasty with some light sweetness developing as it warms. Booze is fairly well hidden but it does grow as it warms up.

M - Heavy body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Dark, roasty feel with a slight alcohol burn at the end of each sip.

O - Not too bad. I am not sure how much of an improvement this was on the base beer but a good barrel aged stout none the less.

Bottle thanks to bosse, shared by me at the Mikkeller Sour Bitch release.

A - Dark black, a little mocha head.

S - Strange carob aroma. A bit chemically on the nose as well. Coffee is there, but it's muted.

T - Wow, pretty solid and much better than the aroma wouild indicate. Some nice roasted cofee and ash with sweet milk chocolate and vanilla. Not bad at all.

M - Medium bodied, light carb, no heat.

O - I almost wanted to pour this out after smelling, but the taste more than makes up for it. Pretty solid brew, but I think the base beer suffers from the barrels.

500 ML bottle, European version. Waxed and served into a wine glass

Just a normal find at the Big Bargain Discount Bottleshop @Burnie, Tasmania.

A-- Poured a dark, murky, brownish black. Settled black. One finger dark brown/ Mocha colored head. Faded to a light milk chocolate film. Good Head retention but no alcohol legs or lacing with this.

S-- Dairy milk chocolate, some oak, little bit of bourbon and some coffee. Alcohol is much more obvious in the nose and gives off a sort of nail polish smell.

T-- Dairy milk, coffee, oats, slight amounts of bourbon, oak and quite thin.

M-- Slick and finishes slightly acidic dry in the mouth. Do get notes of burnt tires in the mid palate. Barrel notes are pretty well reserved. Better feel than the nose and taste as the oats do help the beer along

O-- Stylistically correct but missing something. maybe that the body is thinner, or maybe the oats make too late a run in this. Just missing something that makes this more than a decent beer.

Picked this up at my favorite beer store in Belgium, Dranken Geers. Dark brown, almost black pour with beautiful three finger tan head with good retention and lacing. Unique, roasty, earthy, sweet nose with lots of mocha and coffee along with hints of tobacco and bourbon. The taste follows suit with loads of dark chocolate and coffee, with hints of oak, vanilla, milk chocolate, and just a touch of black licorice and smoke. The bourbon is there, but somewhat subdued. It does come to the forefront more as it warms, but the woodiness is more prevalent from the aging as opposed to the bourbon. The mouthfeel is extremely creamy and smooth, almost like a milkshake. Would have preferred more bourbon character, but overall another solid beer from Mikkeller.

A 500 mL (approximately) bottle.

A: Pitch black, dark as night, ebon. A tan colored head comes along with the stout, lighter like crème.

S: The stout's formidable coffee base comes through, deep and roasted with chocolate and coffee aromas. The bourbon stands out more in this bottle (had one a few months ago that was underwhelming), a sweetness amongst all of the dark flavors. It isn't a full-on bourbon though, rather the soft flavors make me think of a blend.

T: The roasted flavors are dark and burnt, a burn that can't hide the ale's strength. Coffee and chocolate are present, bitter but sweet as the bourbon swoops in. The bourbon, as in the nose, is restrained, present but in a complimentary role. The vanilla and coconut that it brings aren't overpowering, instead they mesh with the darker stout elements. A good stout, plenty of flavor to go around. It's not a big bourbony one though.

M: The mouthfeel is, as expected for a bigger stout, more towards the roasted end of the spectrum. The bourbon that comes through is sweet but could have a little more oomph.

USA version served in a New Belgian snifter.

A: Pours near black with a huge dark mocha head that slowly faded into a thick, dense, melted chocolate ice-cream layer of a film that left broken sheets of fine lacing down the glass.
S: Rich dominant notes of coffee and a touch of spicy bourbon. A deep sniff gets me a bit of volatile alcohol heat and a hint of vanilla and rich bittersweet dark chocolate.
T: Follows the nose. The coffee is not as strong as I was anticipating, but it shows up nicely in the finish/aftertaste. The bourbon is mellow. There’s a hint of tobacco in the aftertaste as well. The chocolate dominates. Tastes pretty good but all the flavors are muted. Definitely underwhelming.
M: Body is on the thinner side but still has a decent chew to it. The alcohol is really mellow for a –bal aged stout, but seems reasonable for a beer that only comes in at 7.5%. Could use fuller carbonation though.
O: Easy to drink for a barrel aged stout, but nothing stood out in this beer. The flavors were muted, the bourbon was light, and the mouthfeel was thin. What flavor was there was good though, and because of the relatively low alcohol this beer was very easy to drink. For the price of this one bottle this beer is definitely not worth it, but if they threw it in 12oz bottles and made a four-pack, I would buy this occasionally.

500 ml bottle, this is the US (7.5% ABV) version. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. The brew smells like coffee, roasted and charred/burnt malt, bittersweet chocolate and some bourbon and vanilla. The taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but with a little bit of licorice noticeable. The bourbon flavor was weak at first, but got stronger as the beer warmed up (and I let the bottle sit out for 30 minutes after taking it out of the fridge before opening it). Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's smooth and a bit creamy with moderate carbonation. I think it's a good overall brew, although I do wish the bourbon in both the aroma and taste was stronger. But at $16.99 a bottle, I wouldn't buy it again at that price.

Thanks to ChrisPro for this share at the Sour Bitch release.

A - Black beer with a bit of a brown head that left just a little bit of stick on the sides.

S - Some good coffee and chocolate. The coffee character is muted a little bit by the bourbon, slight bit of alcohol.

T - Oak, vanilla, bourbon. The coffee and the bourbon actually mix pretty well and make for a nice taste. A touch sweet, I thought the taste on this was pretty good.

M - Smooth, full bodied, lower carbonation.

O - Good beer, solid stuff that I liked quite a bit. Thought the bourbon mixed well with the base beer for a pretty smooth experience.

Drank from my Duvel Tulip

A - Pours the classic deep ebony colour with a large tanned head that reduces to a one fingered head.

S - Very earthy aromas with plenty of woody bourbon in there

T - Flavours are pretty intense vanilla and oak. The Bourbon is definitely a major factor in this beer. Plenty of expresso coffee and toffee as well. A warm boozy finish.

M - Quite a chewy full bodied mouthfeel, with low to medium carbonation.

O - A very pleasureable heavy BA stout that will satisfy your palate.

Serving Type - 16.9 oz bottle

Appearance - Dark black, tan monster thick 3+ inch head, tons of lacing, bout as nice looking as a stout can get.

Smell - Whiskey, coffee, roasted malts, vanilla, chocolate. Dark fruits like plum and rasin, some molasses, and alcohol, smells nice.

Taste - Hmm, starts out mild, chocolate, malts, and some rather light bourbon. Not very flavor heavy, everything is mild, smooth and easy to drink. Coffee and chocolate is rather weak, and the vanilla aroma is near nonexistant.

Mouthfeel - Way to light on mouth for being a barrel aged imperial stout. Tounge gets some bourbon, coffee and malts. PAlette gets remaining malts and some sour from the bourbon. Aftertaste is bland and weak.

Overall - Was excited after pouring, smelling, then i took a drink, wow dissapointing. The regular breakfast stout was amazing, this isnt. Expensive, bland weak flavor, not very happy about this one. Can name alot of better barrel aged beers, pass on this one.

Served in a Paulaner krug.

Finally had the people and the occasion, so this bottle was able to be cracked. It pours a dark black-brown topped by a minimal amount of dark tan foam. The nose comprises roasted malts, light coffee, light buttery toffee, light molasses, and light cocoa. The taste brings in more of the same, with the same amount of lightness throughout. Didn't really get much in the way of bourbon, but the barrel put forth some wood and some extra toffee. The body is a lithe medium, with a light carbonation and a sorta watery carbonation. Overall, this was a pretty large disappointment. This stout was light on flavor and smell and way the hell too thin, especially for a Mikkeller stout. Not sure what happened here, but the barrels seem to have destroyed a once-tasty breakfast stout.

Bottle price-tag-dated Feb. 2011, 7.5%; thanks to madvermin for sharing this.

A: Traditional stout appearance– dark brown/black, with a tall, foamy tan head.

S: Malt is most prevalent here despite the coffee and bourbon flavors I was immediately expecting; vanilla and a light coffee aroma trickle in, alongside a dark chocolate aroma.

T: Good flavor all around here– a moderate bourbon flavor comes through immediately, and a pretty strong coffee is apparent on the finish. Once again, bittersweet chocolate is there throughout. Lightly bitter finish; well balanced.

M: Medium-thick bodied, light carbonation. Smooth and creamy, with just a bit of a sticky, syrupy feeling on the finish.

O: Good beer, without anything particularly positive or negative about it.

A: This pours with with a jet black color and a 2in foam which dissipates into a 1/4 inch ring.

S: It has a strong smell of oak, graham cracker, and espresso

T: This beer has a smooth oak taste with a back ground of espresso and dark chocolate, and some graham cracker.

M: It has a decent mouthfeel, with a rough carbonation that rolls over the tongue. It is a bit thin without the carbonation.

O: This isnt that impressive. I thought that this would be a bit better after having had the Speyside Cask version. Honestly, I was pretty disappointed after had regular breakfast and weasel versions. It is worth a try but not impressive when compared to the other Mikkeller beers.

Bottle generously shared by thegrogbog (thanks Tim!). This pours dark brown with about a finger of tan foam. The nose has less bourbon than we'd hoped, more barrel than bourbon. Some light vanilla mixing it up with roasted malts, much less coffee than the unaged version. In fact that's probably the defining point for me, the barrel took the coffee out of this aroma.

Actually that's pretty much how it tastes too. The coffee is very diminished from the base, maybe barely discernable in the aftertaste. Mostly I get cocoa and vanilla accents on sweet malts.

Average body, on the thinner side maybe but not bad, easy to pound unfortunately. I think we all hoped this would be better, it's not bad but not great.

Pours jet black with a chocolate brown head. In the aroma, oaky, vanilla, and a nice bourbon like note. In the taste, a nice roast, sweet oatmeal and a ever so pleasant bourbon note at the end. A small bite and medium to bigger bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry and roasty aftertaste. Nice roast and very nice nice presence of bourbon, I enjoy that it is not too overbearingly bourbon either.
