I loved this beer! It poured dark with a sizable, foamy, tan head. It smells like coffee, chocolate and a little bit of lambic-like fruit. Throughout, it predominately tasted like a mix of coffee and chocolate, with a strong milk-sugar taste mid-palate, all of which seemed in perfect proportion and both beautifully mixed and clearly distinct at the same time. It was like drinking a wonderful coffee/Coco drink with lots of sugary cream added. Here and there, it was interspersed with a lambic-like cherry taste that turned a bit vinegary toward the end – in a good way. While not feeling like a sick mouthful, like many stouts, it seemed to have a mouth feel typical of Imperial Stouts, of which it is one. Can't blame it for being what it is. Overall, it is a great winter beer, which I would enjoy purely on its own, well after dinner so as not to allow the taste of a meal to overshadow or alter the wonderful taste of this beer.

Full of deep, filling, dark, holiday flavor and really smooth at the same time. May be the best thing I've had this holiday season but Bitches Brew was special as well. Leather and burnt sugar bind with a smooth medium to delight the palate.

To hell with cookies and milk, this year Santa's going to need cookies and this massive imperial milk stout!

To Ol's holiday stout pours inky, onyx and superiorly scary. Its black austere grags us into the glass, nearly against our will. But then picking up those dark chocolate aromas, laced with heavy whipping cream, marshmallow and a detail of smoke entice the senses with its savory spell.

Sultry sweetness rounds off the sharper edges of roast to diminish its espresso char to something more akin to mocha milkshake, especially once those heavy cream textures and marshmallowy sweetness fold into the mix. Its lavish middle palate is silky and sweet while a savory fruit note of black cherry and red grape are unlocked from a firm and toasty malt underpinning.

Long, savory, and not as spicy as you'd think, the beer's certain full body coats the mouth evenly and completely with its oily viscosity. As its enormous milk sweetness dampens the brunt of booze, its thin spirit prickle warms the throat and the mind.

Unique bottle label information: a Google translation of the Danish on the label: With amused twinkle in his eye , draws people in winter clothes for the annual migration up and down the Strøjet.

Indeed...

Midnight black body with a very thick, dense, light brown head; thick, clinging concentric rings of foam along the glass. Aroma has a unique berry/sour aroma with an underlying roasted grain note. Densely sweet flavor tempered with a charred bread crust edge; milk chocolate; bitter; touch of ripened figs and dates. Thick and chewy body with a huge sugary density; velvety and nearly crunchy.

Oh, how I (generally) love these Northern European dark ales! This offering packs an incredible amount sweet, malted, roasted grain goodness in one very appealing package. And for a 15% ABV, well, there is practically no overt hint of booze or alcohol presence. Man, I feel the buzz creeping through my head and I can't stop grinning with satisfaction! A massive, tasty beer personified!!
