Very good, very big stout. This was a tasty stout that is best enjoyed with friends. I could only handle about 6 ounces or so, but if you have four friends, that's perfect.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, yellow session. Brown, muddy color. Aroma is sweet and boozy. Taste follows with sweet malt and acidic/burning alcohol. Sticky, syrupy body. Really difficult to drink. 3.75/5

2014, from bottle. Big bourbon aroma and very sweet, malty taste. Medium but sticky, syrupy body. Feels more like an English Barleywine than an Imperial Stout. Expected something else but overall it was very enjoyable. 4.6/5
