This coffee oatmeal stout really is for the beer geek in all of us. Inky black with a very tight tan/brown head. The aroma is big coffee, and roasted barley. The flavor is, you guessed it, big on the coffee with hits of sweet black licorice, chocolate and grainy oats. The body is medium heavy and the finish is black malt dry with a hop bitterness that cuts through all of those dark flavors.
Most of the highest-rated Danish beers are from Mikkeller, and within the past few months, the brewery was voted the Best in Denmark by the Danish Beer Enthusiasts, and Beer Geek Breakfast has also just been voted the very best beer of Denmark.
