$9 for 11.2oz with the bottom 2oz being yeast.

If you do make the mistake of buying this beer make sure you do not pour the yeast into your glass like I did.

Zero carbonation, milky black...didn't think I'd ever see a gray beer.
Aroma: yeasty
Taste: yeast
Feel...like I might have to go to the doctors and get antibiotics so I don't get thrush.
Overall: bad

That being said, I may have f'd this one up by pouring the yeast in. But if I'm paying $9 for a single I'm drinking every last drop. I can't picture this beer being all that tasty without the yeast either. Very roasty and just an unpleasant astringent bitterness. Avoid.

Reminds me of Bell's Expedition stout. Pure deliciousness.

330 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body. Viscous pour. Thick mocha head. Clings inside the glass.

Smell - Roasty. Licorice. Boozy. Lots of rich dark chocolate lend it a sweet smell.

Taste - Really roasty. Sweet dark chocolate up front. Coffee behind it. Turns to licorice and booze. Bitter malt finish.

Mouthfeel - Heavy and boozy. Medium carbonation.

Overall - I was afraid this would be way over the top, being a Mikkeller beer. It's definitely over the top, but it's really tasty.
