Another great beer from Mikkeller, although I'm not sure that the Calvados really enhances the beer, in fact it might dry it out a bit too much, and there is also a slight hint of sourness (not spoiled tasting) that seems a bit out of place. I say all that being a big fan of Calvados in general. There is a light Calvados flavor, but only right at the end- you get more generic brandy notes until then. When you do get it, there is a touch of heat from the brandy and an apple spirit note. Other than that, you have the standard mellow coffee note, and a smooth roastiness. Definitely not creamy- this is coffee black, not with cream and sugar- but with a shot of brandy added. Very dry, but also very flavorful.

No idea when this was brewed, picked up the bottle at the local bottle shop. The label was in such good shape, it looked as if the bottle had been dragged behind a car on pavement for a mile or so.

Appearance: Opaque with a small, tan head. Yup, looks like a 2x Stout.

Smell: Rich chocolate, vanilla, coconut, wet cardboard(perhaps a bit oxidized). There's some underlying element from the Calvados barrel, yet I can't say I smell any apple brandy.

Taste: Bitterness from the coffee blends well with the chocolate up front. Towards the middle and into the end, you get hit with the Brandy barrel character. The finish is all barrel and coffee bitteress, with the chocolate bowing out just beforehand.

There's some heat on the back end, though I don't believe many would guess that it's about 11% blind, as it drinks smoothly.

Good carbonation with lots of little bubbles is present as well.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied for a 2x.

Overall: A big beer that drinks smoothly with a unique makeup, and comes out of the woods being very drinkable; can't complain.

a: black, almost dark dark brown at the bottom of the cup. dark tan 1/2 finger head

s: smells amazing. a lot going on here. smooth roasted coffee beans, sweet milk chocolate, roasted malts, tons of oak, something almost charred in there as well. maybe a hint of alcohol. also some figs, and what i assume is the calvados. smells quite warming

t: initial sips are all milk chocolate and some alcohol. then the smooth coffee flavor washes through with something thats almost like an apple bite. figs , berries, and plums are there in the background. some slight oak and vanilla here too. the aftertaste is real nice: roasted malt, coffee, and juicy red apples

m: medium - lighter than i expected. not much carbonation

o: ok, probably not worth the price. still GOOD though. the more you sip on it, the nicer it gets and the more you pick up. i think the barrel might just be a little too much for me as i would have liked a little more coffee here. the aftertaste is really nice though, and that apple flavor is something that is really tasty
