A collaboration between Amager and Mikkeller. Described as a Imperial Oatmeal Stout with Coffee. Cheers to motherbrother for this one!
From a 50cl bottle into a snifter
APPEARANCE: A black pour yields a three finger, medium looking, fluffy, creamy, dark tan head with great retention. Black body with medium levels of carbonation evident. Head slowly fades to a tick foam cap and coats the top of the glass. A slight wisp remains leaving lots of splotchy lacing down the glass. Good looking stuff.
SMELL: Roasted grain, burnt and charred malts, oats for sure and dark chocolate on the nose. Light notes of coffee perhaps, but that takes a back seat. Bold for sure.
TASTE: Coffee comes out more in the flavor. Roasted coffee beans and roasted grain with some sweet cream and vanilla notes up front. Big finish with more roasted flavors, burnt, bitter espresso beans, bitter chocolate and some sweet vanilla cream lingers nicely on the palate. Flavorful.
PALATE: Medium-fuller body and creamy smooth on the palate. Goes down nice and finishes slightly mouth-coating. Some bitterness and a touch of heat linger. Good feel.
OVERALL: This was solid. An enjoyable effort between Amager and Mikkeller, but nothing special that makes it an obvious collaboration like Xiquic was. Good stuff all around and something I would drink again for sure. Cheers motherbrother!

Opaque black in color with minimal chocolate colored head that settled into wisps and a thin collar. Aroma is deeply roasted malt, vanilla and earthy wood. Taste is dark chocolate, deep malt, vanilla, with coffee running throughout all of that. Silty mouthfeel, low carbonation and rich body.
