I loved this beer! It poured dark with a sizable, foamy, tan head. It smells like coffee, chocolate and a little bit of lambic-like fruit. Throughout, it predominately tasted like a mix of coffee and chocolate, with a strong milk-sugar taste mid-palate, all of which seemed in perfect proportion and both beautifully mixed and clearly distinct at the same time. It was like drinking a wonderful coffee/Coco drink with lots of sugary cream added. Here and there, it was interspersed with a lambic-like cherry taste that turned a bit vinegary toward the end – in a good way. While not feeling like a sick mouthful, like many stouts, it seemed to have a mouth feel typical of Imperial Stouts, of which it is one. Can't blame it for being what it is. Overall, it is a great winter beer, which I would enjoy purely on its own, well after dinner so as not to allow the taste of a meal to overshadow or alter the wonderful taste of this beer.

I had a half pint served on tap at the Mikkeller Bangkok bar. What I had was a BA Sherry/Cognac remix of the Jule Maelk. The balance of the sweet dark fruits plus the Sherry/Cognac and booze vapors was just stellar. Perfect desert beer, creamy thick texture. One of the best beer experiences I have had. Staff at the bar agreed this was a real standout, get it if you see it!

Full of deep, filling, dark, holiday flavor and really smooth at the same time. May be the best thing I've had this holiday season but Bitches Brew was special as well. Leather and burnt sugar bind with a smooth medium to delight the palate.

Black, mocha tan head, carbonation bubbles abound; looks rather enticing. Dark fruit aroma like raisins and a port wine like musk. Extremely tasty with some chocolate, raisins, and milk all coming together. Velvet feel, thick and creamy. Goes down way to easily and that being said sip lightly cause the 15% is there. Get imperial milk stout here and one that should be tried at least once. Well done!

Aroma- dark chocolate- booze
Taste-sweet jeebus this is delicious! Malty- chocolatey-
Deep dark caramel notes- extremely drinkable despite the high ABV which is amAzingly well hidden
Mouthfeel- just right- not too heavy
Or watery/ concentrated flavors
Overall-I want to go back and buy the rest of these from the store I bought these from! I believe this is a winter seasonal from To Øl - happy girl right now!

12.7 ounce bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head that stayed around a while. There's also a lot of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like dark fruit, chocolate, roasted malt, and some molasses. Taste is similar to the aroma, the brew tastes like dark fruit (cherries, raisins), chocolate, cream, molasses, roasted malt, vanilla, and a bit of sherry. It's a mostly sweet tasting stout, that's for sure. For a brew that's 15% ABV, the alcohol is well hidden! Mouthfeel/body is full, it's syrupy and slick with a good amount of carbonation. It's also smooth and easy to drink. I thought this was pretty good, I'm disappointed I only bought one bottle. If I come across it again, I'll make sure to buy more! $10.99 a bottle.

Unique bottle label information: a Google translation of the Danish on the label: With amused twinkle in his eye , draws people in winter clothes for the annual migration up and down the Strøjet.

Indeed...

Midnight black body with a very thick, dense, light brown head; thick, clinging concentric rings of foam along the glass. Aroma has a unique berry/sour aroma with an underlying roasted grain note. Densely sweet flavor tempered with a charred bread crust edge; milk chocolate; bitter; touch of ripened figs and dates. Thick and chewy body with a huge sugary density; velvety and nearly crunchy.

Oh, how I (generally) love these Northern European dark ales! This offering packs an incredible amount sweet, malted, roasted grain goodness in one very appealing package. And for a 15% ABV, well, there is practically no overt hint of booze or alcohol presence. Man, I feel the buzz creeping through my head and I can't stop grinning with satisfaction! A massive, tasty beer personified!!

Poured black on draft with a thin creamy white head. Subtle yet present scent of roast and chocolate with a slight amount of alcohol in the background. Creamy feel to it with a large amount of chocolate on the tongue which was matched wonderfully with a taste of sour cherry and several other dark fruits. I would not be able to drink more than a goblet of this at a sitting due to sweetness, but man was this tasty for one!
