look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 11.2oz bottle into glass. No bottling date information found. Label has the beer brewed and bottled at Lervig Aktiebryggeri, Norway.
Black colored body, with just a smidge of a dark brown edge when back lit. No read head upon pouring, what sticks around is a small island and thin ring, both fed by rising bubbles. Leaves behind some lacing spots, most of which slide back down into the beer.
Aroma is of dark roasted malts, but this one has a hint of sweetness. Heavy coffee, with additions of subtle smoke, chocolate and dark fruits.
Taste is quite heavy, with its dark roasted malts and coffee. Also expresses chocolate and dark fruit. This one has a hint of smoke but no allusion to grilled meats.
Heavy mouth feel, with a mouth coating sensation. Okay carbonation.
For a higher ABV% beer, the alcohol is well hidden. As the beer warms, at times, it expresses a sensation reminiscent of cherry cola (but ensconced in rich and deep coffee). The after taste has more decadent chocolate than in the main taste profile. The beer has a forbidding appearance because of its lack of foam, but the overall aroma, taste, and mouth feel is very much of a treat.

Sampling a cellar temp 12 oz bottle poured into my snifter. The beer pours a deep cola brown color with fizzy tan head that is minimal and fades to almost nothing immediately after I pour the beer.
The aroma is roasted malt and rich coffee scents. I also get some milk chocolate and a bit of dark fruit underneath the chocolate. Pretty complex and interesting nose, not for the hop heads out there I suppose.
First sip reveals an average body with a bit of a chewy texture and very fine tingly carbonation. The liquid slides easily down with each swallow. The carbonation does leave a bit of a prickly sensation, almost like cayenne pepper on my tongue.
Flavor is what the nose advertises with lots of malt. I get roasted notes and coffee with some brown sugar and milk chocolate mixing together. A little dark chocolate and some molasses too, again, lots of depth to this beer and again, no hops. The booze is also pretty well hidden for 10.9%, as it drinks very easy and leaves no warming on my palate.
Quite a nice imperial coffee stout that Im glad to have tried, I would buy this one again even though it was a little pricey for one bottle ($9.50). Enjoy!

12oz bottle, after one year in my cellar, poured into a Mikkeller 20cl stemmed glass from their original place in Copenhagen. Yes, I am a Mikkeller fan boy, so take that into account. This is an elegant beer, not a gimmick or a ploy at all. It has a nice head but not the strongest presence in the glass. Aromas of tangy, fruity coffee and milk chocolate blossom into a rich, complex taste that brings in caramel, a little hint of sea salt and dark brandied fruit. The feel is light and a little fluffy, unusual for a big stout but perfect for this one - the intense flavors carry the day with ease. I hope that no civets were harmed in the making of this beer, it’s a unique and delightful entry in a very crowded field.

Looks thick dark brown. No head at All
Smells super sweet like sugar and coffee.
The taste of this is smooth as hell, rich dark coffee. It even tastes like there's cream in this coffee it's so luscious.
Mouthfeel is smooth very little carbonation.
Overall I'm impressed with how much this is like an iced coffee and I really like that it's nearly 11%. Very expensive though. I can't believe this is so rare and was crapped out by civets!

Quite lackluster as compared to the original beer geek breakfast. Pretty plain tasting for an adjunct filled stout. I am let down on this one. Mikkeller's stouts are usually an A- or higher. Cheers! B

Couldn’t find a bottled on date, cap had:
KL 13:54:26
BF 25/05/26

Pours black and syrupy, with a thin ivory head and some nice brown lace around the glass.

The nose on this is great. Roasty coffee, sweet fudge chocolate, hints of molasses and booze. Rounded out really well.

This one hits sharply with bitter dark coffee with charred oak and tobacco undertones. The backend still has that sweet fudge and molasses but more as an afterthought. The balance is nice yet again.

Medium bodied, syrupy and very smooth. A boozy warmth settles down the hatch. Low carb, sticky finish.

Black in color impenetrable to light. There's a fingernail of brown around the rim and just a wisp of it covering about half of the top. The aroma is of dark chocolate, fudge, oatmeal, and just a hint of dark roasted coffee. It tastes like dark chocolate and fudge with just a hint of bitter roasted coffee in the back of the palate. The mouth is silky smooth and yet formidable. The oatmeal has made this dangerously smooth. This is very decadent and one of the best dessert beers out there.

Pours black, no head, light fizz. Aroma does a good job of enticing you with rich Vietnamese coffe, vanilla, light milk chocolate from the malt profile. Taste follows a similar pattern but underneath there are some dense tobacco leaf / char undertones that too take away somewhat from am otherwise delectable coffee beer. Coffee flavor isnt overdone & there are some sweet notes to smooth it out, but it finishes just a little heavy thanks those roasted malts.
