Pour thick and rich, pitch black with a foamy dense brown head. The head lasts the length of the beer, and leaves behind some nice lace.

The initial aroma is of oats, strong coffee, and hops. A bit of a lactic note, maybe. There is certainly a bit of a twang. I think the oat can give you a bit of that as well.

Strong coffee with creamer flavors from the initial taste all the way to the bitter finish. As it warms up the hops come out fighting. BAM!! Right in the f’n teeth.

The mouthfeel is so full. Very rich and dense. I want to use the term ’thin pudding’ but that doesn’t sound so nice. But is is very thick so I suppose that get the point across. There also quite a bit of carbonation.

This is easily on of the best beers I’ve had the pleasure of drinking in quite a while. To the folks at Mikkeller. Outstanding show. Please under no circumstance put this beer in a barrel. That would be a crime to humanity. And to SS, many thank you.
