Picked up from John at Granite Liquors in Weymouth. (dbexpert). Pours a coffee black with a bright white head that turns brown as it dissipates. Smells vaguely of coffee infused with mocha flavors. Doesn't just taste like coffee, it tastes like great coffee. Sweet raspberry in the aftertaste. You could do the entire bottle in a sitting, but it's a great beer to share, as I think many people should get to enjoy this one.

Poured from a slightly chilled 500ml bottle into an oversized wine glass.

Appearance: Black body, with a slightly foamy light brown head. No visible carbonation. The black and brown contrast looks really striking. It pours incredibly thick and viscus.

Aroma: Roasted malts, black coffee, and hints of chocolate. There is also a quite clear aroma of alcohol mixed with a slight burnt raisin.

Taste: The flavours are all dominated by the dark malts with a bittersweet chocolate and light caramel. There is a massive hit of bitter coffee, which is heavy throughout, and powerfully clings in the aftertaste. Some noticeable fruits, dark grapes, raisins, and possibly some cherries. The finish is so bitter, with coffee and the bitterest chocolate imaginable.

Mouthfeel: Massively thick and heavy in the palete, it's like drinking double cream. Smooth and velvety texture.

Drinkability: Truly wonderful, beers don't get much better than this. So incredibly thick and silky in the mouth, and the flavours are full and moreish. Slightly disappointed by the aroma, it really doesn't smell like it tastes but everything else makes up for it. I'm cellaring another as I write this and can't wait to see what happens when the taste matures in a few years. Drink this beer!!!

I've been curious about this beer and the coffee it's brewed with for a looong time.

This is one black as fuck beer. Seriously, light is afraid of this thing, even the head is a deep mocha color, out of fear of offending the liquid beneath it no doubt.

This has a deceptively sublte aroma, nice roasted malt, some coffee character, but very, very subtle.

ok. This is more than I can really handle. I do no possess he capabilies to fully appreciate the amazing, and yet somehow demented nature of this beer. Good job, you Danish bastard.... Dark chocolate, coffee (duH), black licorice, earth, weasel shit (a mother of a gourmand of a weasel at that), mud after a spring rain, a bit of Chtulu, serious stuff this is, seriously. This beer is a shitshow...this is brewed with the blood of the Old Gods, or I'm way too messed up from the sensory shockwave that this beer has wreaked upon my fragile sense of self to comprehend. I also as my friend Alan sagely pointed out, it has a faint taste of poo bitterness. And chocolate covered cherries...I can go on, but I may just amend this review after I drink my other bottle (I bought two...so far).

Surprisingly light body and smooth mouthfeel for a beer of this ABV. The alcohol only only makes it's presence known towards the end as it warms up.

I just want to keep drinking this until I figure it out...it drinks well, very well. I'm not sure when I will brave another bottle of this, but I doubt I will be any more prepared.

Beer Geek Brunch Weasel | 500 ml. | 10.9% ABV | 2010

Brewer: Mikkeller
Style: American Double / Imperial Oatmeal Stout
Glass: Duvel tulip

Appearance:
An impenetrable black body sits below a beautiful mocha head.

Aroma:
Thick black coffee, whisky notes, toasted malts.

Taste:
Rich, dark chocolate layers upon a base of toasted, almost charred, malts. Just as a flare of caramel comes through, bitter hops offer relief from the malt-heavy opening. The finish is espresso and hints of whiskey.

Mouthfeel:
Unbelievably creamy and full in the mouth. It caresses the tongue, only pricking it with the tiniest barbs of carbonation towards the finish.

Harmony:
Very well balanced between roasty malts and semi-acerbic hop oils. The layers of dark chocolate, caramel, and espresso are lush. At 10.9% ABV, it is also eminently drinkable.

Would I get it again?:
Yes.

Bottled: ?
Served: January 9, 2010

Price = $13.29 at Witherspoon Wines

Very good stuff, super malty and syrupy with a slight coffee taste. It isn't the best Imperial Coffee Stout but it is one I would never turn down.

Had this at the Old Stone Bridge Pub in Reno. Pricey ($21) but delicious.

Pours a dark black, good beige head. Really, almost perfect. Smell, massive, delectable coffee.

Taste, rich coffee again, low on the acidity but big and bold roasted flavor. Chocolate to lesser degree to back it up. An even lesser degree of vanilla. Never is there an alcohol burn, so while I downgraded the drinkability because of the high price, it was offset somewhat by the amazing enjoyment of this sipper.

Good thing I didn't read about the way they make this beer until I was 4/5s done with the bottle. They collect the turds from a weasel that eats the coffee beans? What? Ah well, it works, because this is a damn good beer.
