Thin tan head with some lacing on a jet black body. Dark cocoa, coffee and roasted and smoked malts. Very good aroma but a little simple and just a little light. Flavors include a very well balanced with the coffee very well applied to a smoked malt base beer with earthy hopped character. Medium to thick body and moderate carbonation. This one is simple but what it does, it does well. Very smooth, flavorful and incredibly drinkable.

Its color couldn’t be darker. Made just one finger head with a dark color as well and with a low retention.
Rich aroma of toasted and smoke malts, dark chocolate and coffee. Taste pretty much follows the nose, with the addition of citric hops with a hint of resin.
Alcohol is hidden in its strong personality. Aftertaste is dry and a bit hoppy.
It has a full creamy body with light carbonation and small bubbles.
It is really a complete breakfast, very complex and balanced beer; it perfectly substitutes your morning (or evening) coffee. Great beer.

Poured from a bomber to a sam adams cup

A- near jet black w/ floaties, 1/4" brown head w/ hard pour

S- smokey leather, coffee, dark chocolate, dank hops

T- smoke, dark roast coffee, bitter dark chocolate, pretzels, dank hops, acidic after taste

M- medium body, average carbonation

O- my first Mikkeller, a pretty decent brew. There's something off about the smell/taste that had me checking for a bottling date (there isn't one). Still an enjoyable beer, the smoke and dank hops were a pleasant surprise. Low score on the appearance cuz frankly, she's ugly. I know adding oats sacrafices appearance for a creamier mouthfeel, but i have had prettier beers w/ creamier mouthfeel then this.

Pitch black colour with a nice looking brownish, creamy head which disapperars rather quickly. Nice lacing on the glass. A really good looking imperial stout.
Aroma is full of nice coffee, roasted malts, dark fruits and a nice bitter presence of hops.
Maybe some hints of chocolate.
Taste is big time coffee, roasted flavors and a little smoke with a dry, hoppy bitter finish.
Don`t get many chocolate and sweet flavors in here, maybe at the beginning.
Body is medium to full with a long lasting bitter taste on the palate.

A nice imperial stout you can`t go wrong with this beer if you like creamy, coffee flavors

16.9 oz bottle split and poured into small snifters.

A: Pours black with a 1.5 finger khaki head. Sticks around for a nice long time, leaving some lacing as it dissipates. Always a nice film covering the top.

S: Certainly some coffee upfront. Also a nice roasty dark fruit malt

T: Smooth blend with an overall background of smoke. Can get coffee in it as well as a dark fruity malt. Has the english influence in regard to malt flavors. Some hops make it through the backend.

M: Velvety creamy mouthfeel with low carbonation. Real nice easy drinking feel to it. A little warming.

Overall who cant love a breakfast stout. Paired this with a FBS and it came off smokier with less coffee. Nonetheless an incredible stout that I'd recommend to any coffee beer fan.
