8.5 oz. bottle poured into snifter.

A - Jet black, thin mocha head, nice moderate lacing.

M- Smooth, full bodied, low carbonation, alcohol and oak linger on your tongue.

O - Impressed, as usual! I love Mikkeller!

Thanks France 44!

Poured into a stout glass.

- Appearance was jet black. I poured aggressive and got a two finger brown head. The head had a bit of a reddish tint to it.

- The smell on this beer was incredible, the Calvados (apple, brandy) was apparent, roasted malts, oak, coffee. The complexity of the scent was really nice.

- There were a lot of flavors I got from this, apples, roasted malts and coffee up front. More roasted malts and nuts in the mid. The finish was crazy, a bit of cocoa, oak, brandy, and slight tobacco. Seems like a lot going on but worked great.

-If there could be any improvement to this beer I wish it was a little heavier on the mouthfeel. The mouthfeel was heavy and smooth but I felt with all the flavors going on it could stand to be even heavier.

Overall this is one of my favorite Mikkellers and one of the best beers I've ever had. It is expensive and hard to find but if your a fan of Mikkeller or very complex flavor profiles this is one to seek out.
