4.45/5  rDev +13.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

750 ml bottle (1 pint 9.4 fl oz) with no apparent bottled on date present. Orange foil around the cap. Acquired this bottle from a local beer store for $15.99. It was the only time I've ever seen this beer available in my area, and it was the only bottle they had.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.

A - Pours four giant fingers of creamy pillowy mocha colored fluff on top of a rich dark opaque black-brown body. Beautiful rings of lace.

S - Smells phenomenal. At first, chocolate and bitter coffee bean roast is apparent, and as it sits, mouthwatering tart citrus orange & yuzu aromas come out. This smells how I wish Pipeworks Orange Truffle Abduction had smelled.

T - Taste follows the nose perfectly: dark chocolate, bitter coffee bean roast, some mineral water, and some tartness from the yuzu & orange. The orange and yuzu add just enough sour citric to the mix without being distracting.

M - Feel is of some bitter roast and light citrus on the palate.

Overall, I thought it was fantastic. Perfectly blended exotic yuzu fruit and orange with the classic elements of a nice porter. Well done, Mikkeller. I can definitely say I would have this again if it was more readily available to me. Highly recommended.

My first Mikkeller!
A: Dark as night, with lovely lacing. Pours foamy but the head fades rather quickly.
S: Typical porter flavors (smoky, chocolate, tobacco, coffee), only very faint and gentle.
T: Again with your typical porter flavors (and again, fairly gentle on the flavoring), with a well-balanced tart and sweet element from the orange/yuzu. I liked how these flavors complimented each other well.
M: Smooth, silky. Didn't notice carbonation. Mouthfeel kinda reminded me of red wine, even,
O: An interesting and yet highly drinkable porter.

3.28/5  rDev -16.1%
look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 3

A - Goodness... Say what you will about Mikkeller, but you can't argue that the man makes amazing looking beers. Bowling ball black body with a towering, creamy, light tan pillow of head. Outrageous retention and lace.

S - Bright orange zest and dark chocolate, dark roast malts, just a hint of smoke, bread crust.

T - Bitter orange, touch of cocoa, lemon zest, light roasted grains.

M - Disappointingly thin body made even lighter by a bright acidity.

O - Great concept but the execution leaves a lot to be desired in the flavor profile and body.

Quick notes

Appearance - Black/deep brown. Frothy, sticky khaki head that leaves great lacing.

Aroma - Chocolate covered oranges. Slight grapefruit tartness.

Taste - similar to nose with a hint of mineral, and slight nuttiness.

Mouthfeel - Would like a bit more carbonation, but the head would never stop. It's silky and creamy. Very well done.

Overall - Surprised by how much I enjoyed this. I've have a few Mikkeller beers that underwhelmed recently. Will look for this again!
