Dear people, behold this is not your average USA stout. Shared wirh a friend (lucky I did).

appearance is pitch black with a nice head. Smell is BOOZY with a peated, hoppy coffee aroma.

Taste is bombastic; coffee, alcohol, sweet, roasty malts, with a ridiculous long coffee finish. Very, very boozy; tons of very bitter chocolate. Alcohol is not well hidden, as it is within so many competitors, but it's not disturbing or annoying. It's a class on it's own; it's a prestige thing. Enjoy.

Please share this beer with a friend (or two), or take a whole evening finishing this one by yourself. 'only' 2,5% ystronger than something like BCBS, but this one will blow you away. Despite it's very, very strong character I'd encourage every stout lover to try this one.

17.5 abv, Holdbar til 15/09/19.

Appearance. Pours thick and black, very still.

Smell. Molasses and rum with a little chocolate and charred malt.

Taste. Dark charred malts, chocolate, rum, quite sweet. Lots of bitter char in the end.

Mouthfeel. Very full body, sticky, and completely flat.

Overall. Another flat, expensive Mikkeller. Not impressed.

2013 version on tap at BrewDog's Aberdeen pub.
Rlack body with a very, very durable and creamy light brown head.
Boozy, intimidating aroma.
Flavor: alcohol is a major part of the flavor profile, but this is an extremely rich ale, with a huge load of malts and plenty of hops. Low level of burnt grain/char.
hidden in the taste.
Medium-full body with near medium carbonation.
