Brought a bottle up to Tahoe; broke it out for dessert after some EPIC organic pasta bolognese. (Thanks Matt!)

Appearance: About as good as it gets, almost jet black with a marshmallow dense crema head, just decadent.

Smell: Almost. I expected this to be The Coffee Show, a showcase for the exotic civet coffee, but instead I found balance; gorgeous vanilla, rich chocolate, and smooth, deep coffee -- it's a brick.

Mouthfeel: This may the best there is. It just so dense, creamy, and heavy; you feel like you should spoon it out of your glass or top it with some Ben and Jerry's vanilla -- it's ridiculously lush.

Taste: Paradoxically, there's so much flavor it may compromise the flavor. It's basically some 2,000 calorie ice cream dessert in a glass; chocolate, vanilla, toffee, and coffee in spades. Not a bad thing per se, but I was really hoping to get a showcase for arguably the best coffee on earth, instead I got buried.

Drinkability: Zero, really, because it's So. Damn. Heavy. But if you treat it like the dessert it is, it's hard to beat.

Glad I finally got a chance to try the infamous cat poop beer. Been looking foward to trying this one for a while...

Poured from a 500ml into a Ballast Point Brewery pint glass...

A - Poures black with a one finger dark brown head. Love the dark brown color of the head. A good amount of lacing, and a decent head retention on this one...

S - Lots of coffee and chocolate notes...

T - Coffee, dark chocolate, and a touch of caramel. Dark roasted coffee is definitely the most prominent taste; however, it is not overpowering, and comes across very smooth. Abv is very well hidden. Tasty...

M - Medium/full bodied. Nice and creamy...

D - Wow. Was expecting this beer to be good, but not this good. Very impressed. The price is a little steep, but I will definitely be buying this one again despite the price. Mikkeller brewed a winner here. If you haven't tried this one yet, pick it up. You won't be disappointed...

Cheers...

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a small snifter glass.

A: Color is black trailing to a dark brown at the edge. Pours with a 3/4 inch bright brown head that slowly dissipates to a thin brown film on top. Nice lacing on the edge of the glass.

S: First smell is very earthy. Pulled from the fridge, this beer needed some time to warm-up and open up. As it did, the dark cocoa and coffee aromas became more apparent. Smells like dark roasted espresso beans. Also getting a faint, but deep woodsy scent.

T: Wow, the flavors are intense. Way more than anticipated from the smell. Solid blast of smokey, roasted coffee flavors early. Flavor continues to be very earthy, very strong. Mid taste, chocolate and some faint sweetness from the malts show up with a lingering coffee bitterness. The heat from the alcohol slowly builds and there is a nice warmth on the finish. Finish is long and outside of the warmth from the alcohol, reminds me of drinking good dark coffee.

M: Big body, thick, clingy. This is a meal, definitely a sipper. Carbonation moderate, about right. Edit: marked down a notch due to increasing graininess as I got towards the of the bottle. Last two or three tablespoons of last pour were dumped due to heavy sediment.

D: Not an everyday beer, even putting aside the price. I'm glad I got to try this though. One of the most intense flavor experiences yet. The coffee literally smacks you in the face on first taste. While I will definitely have this again, I wouldn't consider it an easy to drink beer. Edit: I dropped one rating because this beer literally became tiring to drink. I had about 4/5 of the bottle and that was too much in one 90-minute session.

Now this one really does wake you up.

Poured into a Duvel tulip a completely black hue with a brown head. Had some nice hang time for a beer of almost 11%. Web lacing on the glass. Very nice.

The nose is a hint to the nice amount of alcohol in this one as well as a strong nose of coffee. There's also some dried dark fruits in there and possibly some molasses. Very nice and tempting.

Taste is bitter coffee and some chocolate upfront, with a nice amount of roasted flavor as well. Raisins and prune are the dominate fruity flavors and the finish is a warm vinous flavor.

Super creamy smooth body from the oatmeal. And alcohol is pretty well balanced but you can definitely feel it when you get up from your first pint.

A very nice brew.

A - Pours a very dark brown, almost black. Large tan head with good retention and lacing. While it is almost completely opaque, heavy carbonation can still be seen.

S - Roasted malt was the first thing that shot up at me. This was followed by subtle coffee and chocolate flavors. Also, the alcohol is noticeable.

T - Sweetness from the chocolate is the first thing I notice. This gives way to the roasted, chewy malt. Coffee flavors are there but somewhat masked by the high alcohol.

M - High carbonation but somwhat watery.

D - While this is a good beer, the alcohol and the price make it a one-time only purchase.

I guess this is officially stout night for us...and boy, do I love stouts.

A: Black, thick like motor oil, and extremely heady; lacing was also evident as well.

S: A very pungent and robust coffee bean aroma that gives off the hot and alcohol characteristic as well. Some hazelnut, which could just be from the civet coffee beans, is also detectable too.

T: The first thing I noticed, except for the incredible flavor this brew gave off, is the hot fuzzy feeling in the middle of my chest ; doesn't hide the alcohol that well...but still pretty tasty. Strong coffee flavor is definitely there, but it almost seems to me that this beer was brewed with a good amount of cocoa/chocolate...not sure though.

M: Engulfs the mouth with its viscous presence...and carbonation is applied just right onto the palate.

D: A little hot to be enjoyed "all night long" (thats for you Victor)...warming up my body as I speak...I mean write. I am not disappointed by this beer at all and one that should be enjoyed by all.

Overall: A must try...Cheers!

P.S. I had to add this as well...

T:...Vanilla and caramel flavors are also present as well.

Shared with Cavery. Poured into an oversize wine glass.

A: Deep black with a thin tan head that eventually leaves a small tan ring around the top of the glass. Reminds me very much of the visual of Speedway Stout.

S: Funky. I felt nervous after I read the side of the bottle right before drinking it. I've never had the coffee so I didn't know what to expect. Honestly it smelled enticing, this seems awfully different. High quality coffee, chocolate, spices, and honestly a little bit of shit in the nose (not just from expectation, I believe). Makes me excited for the taste.

T: Hot damn, that is an amazing beer. Punches you with a mysterious funk that blooms out into a delicious coffee, chocolate, coconut flow that rolls out into your mouth then curls back up slow mo back into the original punch of funk, mellowing out with a mix of all of the flavors. The taste is amazing-- my expectations and fears are floored.

M: Wonderfully creamy, fits the taste profile awesomely, especially helps bring up the coconut sense that comes in the mouth.

O: This is maybe the most underrated beer I've ever encountered. The fact that I never see this thrown down in trades or talked about or in the top 100 list all attest to that fact. I applaud mikkeller for the bold experiment and the spectacular result. It's pretty rare that I seek out a beer soon after I have it but I'll be securing more bottles of this when I can.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

11.2 oz bottle, poured into a snifter at room temperature.

A: Pours a level of black that should probably emit Hawking radiation, while forming a very thin, very dark brown head that dissipates quickly and leaves no trace at all - no cap, no ring, maybe a couple stray bubbles temporarily along the sides of the glass. In other words, nothing escapes it. I'm guessing it's somewhat high gravity. (These jokes should all go under one of Mikkeller's other beers, but they fit better with the appearance of this one.)

S: The aroma, which somehow manages to escape the event horizon of the beer surface, strikes up front as sweet with dark fruitiness throughout. Both roasted chocolate malt and sweeter notes are present, as one would expect from an oatmeal stout. Fruity notes include plums, figs, and currants. Despite one of the main ingredients, I detect no litterbox odors - perhaps those simply aren't shunted away from the singularity during dilation. Oddly enough, I get little to no coffee odor as well.

T: Unexpectedly, this beer did not tear my tongue apart and then crush it into an infinitesimally tiny ball of matter, so that's a plus. Toffee and chocolate malts strike up front, joined shortly by a quick rush of more fruity notes ranging from plum to currant. As the beer moves along the palate, an earthy, burnt bitter flavor swirls in to conceal the rest, which in turn yields to an almost pure coffee taste at the finish. A pleasant roasted coffee aftertaste lingers well after the swallow, markedly less bitter than any other coffee I have tasted aside from pure Kona coffee in Kailua-Kona itself.

M: Smooth and silken, with scarcely any carbonation to be found nor tasted - literally just enough to leave the beer not feeling dead and lifeless in the mouth. It's not the heaviest oatmeal stout I've ever tasted, which is surprising given the amount of mass it should have, but it compares decently to others in the style.

O: Eminently drinkable, this hides its ABV well behind a wall of shifting flavor complexity. I would consider buying again. One could say it has a powerful attractive force. All right, I'll knock off the lame black hole jokes. Suffice it to say, despite being made with crap, this is far from a crappy beer.

split in new belgium goblets with newk320

a- thck balck, 1 finger of tan foam that dissipates a bit quickly

s- deep dark stout, malts on malts, coffee, dark chocolate

t- damn that's delic. coffee. a stiff punch. bold and black, malty, lasting, dark chocolate. goodbye palate, but I'm all right about it.

m- a medium thick syrup. a mini tingle of alcohol.

d- very good. i put it a hair under stone's ris, but above the founder's breakfast stout. considering how good this coffee is supposed to be, could they have done more?

Serving Type: Bottle - Lion's Pride, Brunswick, ME

A- 90% opaque. Black with residual lacing. Quickly diminishing head

S- Milk chocolate off the front, sugary with big coffee, toasty, roasty notes. Some dark plum, cherry and fig, maybe a little rum raisin and a touch of bitterness.

T- Silky smooth. Coffee, sweet chocolate, espresso... who needs a cup of coffee in the morning when you can have this?!?! It had an almost sensual feel in the mouth. I felt like I was making out with Kate Middleton (straight babe.) This beer is early morning Denmark royalty without the "walk of shame" after you've finished it. Very little alcohol ester and it kept you wanting more.

M- See above

The best beer I've had from Mikkeller to date.

Poured from the bottle into a snifter...

Pours thick and black, crimson around the edges with one finger of thick light brown head which leaves a bit of lacing...

Nice mix of sweet chocolate with strong bitter coffee in the nose. Roasted and somewhat smokey with hints of vanilla...

Nice meld of semi-sweet chocolate with smooth, not too bitter coffee. Touches of vanilla and a nice subtle hop presence in the finish...

Nice and thick, smooth and creamy with a nice subdued alcohol burn in the finish...

Pretty darn good coffee stout here, way too expensive, but good...

Pours a black. I mean black. Viscous and thick, looks like oil. Very dark brown head. Smell permeates the room, roasted coffee beans, expresso beans and unsweetened or bitter chocolate. Taste is remarkable and complex. It has layers of black coffee, and bitter chocolate. Not overly sweet, mouthfeel almost reminds me of a dry Irish stout. Not as chewy or thick as I would expect. Not that its thin either. Wow, this is really good, hard to believe that the beans used here traveled through an animals digestive tract.

Poured from bottle to pint glass.

A: Produces a huge light-brown head with a nice brown head. Head has good retention, but not a whole lot of lacing.

S: Smells of strong coffee with a bit of a hop profile. The coffee smell reminds me of Surly's coffee bender.

T: Strong coffee with a nice hop and malt balance. One thing I was worried about was whether or not this beer would be unbalanced, but it's perfectly done in that sense.

M&D: Mouthfeel is well carbonated and lighter in body than I expected. Drinkability is perfect, the alcohol barely comes in and it's easy to drink a bottle.

Pours midnight black with slight offwhite head that dissapates quickly.

Aroma is light coffe and roast, some cocoa as well.

Flavor follows the aroma with a fairly intense coffe and roast flavor, some cocoa nib and lots of sweetness. some alcohol in the mouth on this one.

While very tasty this is a little hard to drink in quantity for me, good but only really want half the bottle.

Review from notes from tasting 3/20/11

A-Pours dark as you would expect, average head and lacing

S- nose is coffee, seemed a touch subdued to what I was expecting.

T- Taste follows the nose with the coffee merging with some warming toasted malts.

M- I thought this was a little lighter than expected, finished slightly dry

O- I was hoping for more from this brew, especially at the pricepoint. The beer was tasty, but not tasty enough for the $$.

A: Pours an incredibly dark brown, very little light getting through on the edges only. Sits a pitch black in the glass with a dark, creamy mocha head. Huge, sticky lacing and retention.

S: An incredibly, rich, vibrant coffee aroma. Very rich, heavily roasted - some ash - fresh oily coffee beans. Bitter dark chocolate. Some vanilla sweetness that gives a mocha effect and brings out some milk chocolate. Fresh acidity. some raisin. Hands down one of the most amazing coffee aromas.

T: Very full, bitter and rich. Fresh espresso bitterness, oily coffee bean acidity, and bakers chocolate. Some vanilla mocha sweetness come through at the finish. Heavily roasted - can taste some ash. Not as mind blowing as the aroma, but very impressive and incredibly enjoyable.

P: Full, viscous, fitting. Allows the flavor to open up to it's full potential. Lines the inside of the mouth

O: I love coffee beers and this is one of the best out there, I'm sure. Too bad it's difficult to impossible to obtain in the US - thanks Jimmy!

22oz bottle from notes early afternoon 08/20/10. Making it a true Beer Geek Brunch today.

This dense, coal-black, monster of an ale is topped by a nicely retained reddish colored head. Some sticky lacing clings to the walls of the tulip as the head slowly recedes.

Aroma consists mostly of roasted coffee acidity with strong secondary chocolate notes. Even with the higher ABV the bold characteristics are as just about as well integrated as in the Breakfast version.

The coffee continues to be the main attribute on the palate, lending pleasant roasted, acidic, and bitter flavors. Chocolate is still a significant role player here and the oatmeal finally starts to make itself known.

I'm still marveling about how easy drinking this is. This seems much more about the coffee than the non-weasel Breakfast version but it somehow still works in my opinion, even for a non-coffee drinker like myself. Funny that I'm not typically one to get excited about big coffee-infused stouts but both the Beer Geek beers I've tried so far are among my favorites from Mikkeller. If you can stomach the price tag this definitely a beer worth trying out.

Poured into pint glass.

Appearance: Deep brown, almost black, espresso like in color, heavy rich tan head that quickly fades.

Smell: Roasted malt, coffee, smoked wood, hints of chocolate.

Taste: just like it smells, roasted malt, strong coffee taste, and notes of chocolate throughout.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, rich, creamy.

Overall: A very good imperial oatmeal stout. If you can find a bottle, by all means don't pass up the opportunity.

Bottle. Pours opaque black with a thick brown head. I don't get how this one is different than any other coffee type stout. The nose it quite roasty and full of coffee. Sure, its tasty. Lots of coffee and chocolate with a smooth bitterness. Leave a licorice or anise after taste. That's a bit different. Not special though. Chewy body an silky mouthfeel. I look at the score that I'm giving this beer and it doesn't really fit with my comments. When is said and done this is on par with Founders Breakfast Stout, Peche Mortel, and Speedway.

Black, mahogony tinged pour with a short lived mocha brown head. Nice lacing clings throughout. Strongest coffee aroma I have encountered in a beer. Strong, thick, Cuban coffee. Sweet, burnt carmel and cocoa. Taste is more of a bitter cocoa, and leaves the bitterness behind as a lingering after effect that I could do without honestly. Mouthfeel is slick and oily, maybe a bit thin. Alcohol is completely masked.

I had been keen to try this beer for a while now, and it does not dissappoint. The aroma alone makes this worth the cost. Not sure if it tops Speedway Stout, but it is certainly in the ballpark.

Single 11.2oz bottle picked up from the Mall of the Bluffs Hyvee for around $9. Labeled as an “imperial oatmeal stout brewed with coffee.” Cool artwork from Keith Shore depicting some kind of cat thingy, a hat and an empty glass. The label basically sells the beer. Poured into a Blind Tiger Brewery snifter after letting it warm up for a while.

Appearance: A pour straight down the middle produced a beautiful; two fingers of dark brown head. The head is dense with a few solid bubbles in the middle. Black body. After settling down a thin, reddish brown cap remained and left nice lacing when I swirled the glass. Looks good for an imperial stout.

Smell: It smells mostly of coffee but not in the way other coffee beers smell. It’s got that spicy, coffee acidity that others have but I’m not imagining coffee beans but maybe a ground, flavored coffee. Lots of chocolate, like one of those pouches of dried hot chocolate mixture with some marshmallows. Also cinnamon, chocolate pudding, and chocolate milk.

Taste: Basically Kahlua and Ovaltine. Big, smooth notes of rich chocolate syrup, hazelnut, spicy-grainy coffee, pudding and a drying alcohol. Finishes sweet with a lingering coffee roast. My burps taste like a mocha.

Mouthfeel: Silky, smooth, and full with a low carbonation. The mouthfeel fits this beer perfectly.

Overall: My only regret is not having any doughnuts around. I’m assuming it’s the coffee or other possible adjuncts they used but this was a different coffee experience as compared to other coffee beers; more dense chocolate flavors, spicy coffee and a silky body from the oatmeal. While this was an expensive beer to try, I’d say it’s worth picking up once as it does not disappoint. If you’d like to try the next best thing after Espresso Yeti then this is your beer. Would love to try it out of a cognac or bourbon barrel.

Poured into a pint glass.

The coffee used in brewing this beer is the most expensive in the world. It really shines through. Flavors unlike anything I've tasted in a stout. Very rich, big roasted coffee & chocolate. Layers upon layers & so smooth. A truly exceptional beer. Highest recommendation.

A: Pours almost pitch black with some light barely escaping around the edges, capped by two fingers of foamy beige head. Retention is good and it leaves massive amounts of sticky lacing down the glass.

S: Aroma is somewhat subdued, with roasted grains out front including somewhat of a charred character, followed by semi-sweet chocolate and coffee. Some caramel lurks in the background.

T: Roasted and burnt malts up front along with some faint dark cherries and plums, which give way to a big dose of semisweet chocolate. Coffee comes in strong about halfway through and sticks around through the finish, combining with some bitter chocolate to form a rich, slightly bitter mocha after taste. And what a long aftertaste it is...45 seconds later, I'm still tasting it.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, could be a bit thicker and creamier.

D: While it's not hard to drink, the long finish really keeps this to being a sipper.

Rich brown, mocha head with two large fingers of frothy head crowning a clear, black body; excellent head retention and sticky lace that encircles the inside of the glass.

Aromas of burnt sugar, bakers chocolate, strong roasted coffee, alcohol, and some toasted nuttiness. As beer warms currants and come into play as well.

Silky tongue coating, prominent alcohol warmth, ash, characteristically strong/intense roast coffee which imparts both earthiness and subtle astringent bitterness that fades well into the bittersweet chocolate finish. There is also an unexpected earthy flavor. Oats add a very pleasant oily mouthfeel. Creamy, medium bodied and carbonated with a dialed in level of perceived sweetness. Not too much to detract from the coffee, but enough to add body. Alcohol acts as the glue and wraps all the flavors up in its embrace.

Immensely sippable and delicious; definitely for coffee lovers as casual imbibers might be put off by the prominent coffee flavor which dominates, and assuredly so.

Thanks awalk1227!

A: Pitch black, impressive Khaki head. Some surprisingly sticky lacing

S: Caoco nibs, unsweetened chocolate. Fresh beans are present but cannot dominate over the impression of chocolate. A little string of alcohol.

T: A great balance of fudge like chocolate and roasted beans. Coffee apect is delicate rather than boisterous. Alcohol is less apparent than in the nose. Im mising the oats here, I thought the base beer is an oatmeal stout.

M/D: Thick and notably coating. Aftertaste is similar to eating a piece of fudge and drinking a cup of coffee. 11% is barely noticable in the taste. Can be sipped slowly but I finished my glass pretty quick.
