4.2/5 rDev -2.1%
A: 5 Pitch black with a light brown head. Super clean and uniform.
S: 4.25 Roasted malt, light coffee and caramel up front. A bit of vanilla shows up as the beer warms.
T: 4 At 55 degrees, there's lots of roasted malt with a smokey, soy sauce flavor. A bit of sweetness and caramel flavors follow as the beer warms, but roasted malt dominates with some bitterness. At almost room temperature, the flavor is more pleasant (less soy sauce), some chocolate lingers.
M: 4.5 Thick, creamy, and chewy. A little too much dryness at the end, bit overall quite nice.
O: 4.25 Like mikkeller's other barrel aged stouts, there's a bit too much roasted malt and not enough barrel character. The result is a slightly harsh beer without the interesting flavors and aromas of other beers in the same category.

4.33/5 rDev +0.9%
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a small dark brown foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of slightly sweet black chocolate notes with some light Cognac notes and light roasted notes. Taste is a great mix between some nice creamy black chocolate notes with some Cognac notes and some light roasted malt notes with well-rounded finish. Body is full with nice creamy body and good carbonation with no alcohol being easily discernible. Very fine used of barrel-aging to smoothed out any rough edges of base beer.
