Tulip glass.

A: Pours a viscous black with a fine, ephemeral cap of dark brown head. A few dots of lace and pretty good retention. The ring is reminiscent of a shot of espresso.

S: Bold, earthy coffee, a darkish roast, firm sweetish roasted malt, and a touch of fruitiness and spice. The coffee aroma is unique and interesting.

T: A real coffee bomb. Dark roast coffee, moderate spiciness, dry but not too try and lots of espresso coffee on the finish. Not unlike drinking an iced espresso.

M: Medium-full body and medium-light but sharp carbonation.

O: Very good coffee-forward beer. My main complaint would be the one dimensionality of the flavor. Doesn't have the same charm as Speedway Stout.

Poured into a tulip glass. An amazingly dark brown head, creamy and rich with steller retention and lacing. Colour is jet black. Such a smooth liqueury and thick character.

S - dark roast malt and piles of bitter coffee, dried apricot and fruit, very intense and rich, subtle oriental spices, so complex and balanced.

T - coffee liqueur, a subtle creaminess, oakyness, coffee beans, warming liqueur note. Fisnish is dry, complex and malt forward, a very long finish, drying espresso, rich velvet cake.

M - a smooth, very rich body, surprisingly creamy with a spicy alcohol presence, all very balanced and drinkable with enough malt and coffee to balance it out nicely, nearly syrupy in texture.

An amazing beer, maybe a little hot on the alcohol but the coffee integrates seamlessly, leading to really complex subtleties. A very enjoyable coffee stout, one of the best I've had, so creamy and rich, robust and yet delicate. Very solid beer from Mikkeller, would definitely recommend it.
