look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Shiny, gloopy ink black with a large, air-bubble pocked mocha foam that quickly settles to nothing but a thin ring.

Smell is sort of artificial, like an instant brownie batter mix, with dark chocolate chips and vanilla frosting.

That cloying vanilla frosting is present in flavor too, with a goopy dark chocolate that leaves minimal room for beery flavors. There's a sort of cherry almond in the swallow, and only the slightest hint of roast. It's tasty...but also difficult to drink much of. Ergo, the 16 ounce format is ill-advised.

This is quite sweet, sharp and sticky with an almost acidic sort of booze. A mild velvety fizz tries to mitigate this, as the finish is semi-dry with a sting of heat on the way down. Why is the average score for this so high??

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Look: Typical dark black Mikkeller stout with no head and a dark tan rim that leaves bubbly residue up the sides.
Smell: Wow! Very sweet. Notes of licorice, cinnamon, red velvet cupcakes, and laundry detergent.
Taste: Surprising presence of a smoky malt character in addition to notes of dark chocolate and blackberries. Very acidic. Just a hint too sweet.
Mouthfeel: Dry on the entry and finishes with a full bodied presence and minimal carbonation.
Overall: Too sweet and strangely acidic but the smokiness and dry full bodied mouthfeel elevate this beer.

Pours pitch black with a thin ring of tan head and no lacing. Smells and tastes of cocoa, coffee, vanilla, roasted malts, dark fruits and a bit of char. Medium to heavy bodied, minimal carbonation, fairly sweet but not crazily so, slightly chalky finish. Very good bit not worth the price as compared to other beers.

11.2oz bottle poured into a snifter
2015 vintage

A- pours a deep black color with a one-finger creamy khaki colored head that reduces quickly to leave just a ring around the edge of the glass

S- bold dark roasted/charred malt aroma up front with compliments of dark fruity notes of fig, prune & black cherry. Undertones of both cocoa and vanilla pop through the roasted malt, as well as hints of caramel & vanilla icing

T- dark roasted malt and dark fruit flavors follow the aroma, particularly prune and fig. Mid-palate gives some sweet notes of vanilla, cocoa/chocolate & caramel/toffee. The finish gives more prune and charred malt and lingers of chocolate and caramel

M- medium-heavy body with moderate carbonation leads to a thick and creamy mouthfeel that continues into a velvety silky finish, just a hint of alcohol warmth

O- more dark fruit than I was expecting, not my favorite of the series but still very good

Cloyingly sweet, had to drain-pour after about half a glass.
