700. Mikkeller Black (黑)

So much quality in this beer.
Really good flavors for what it is - not my typical style, but this was the best option for a milestone such as 700.  Lots of chocolate and coffee aromas and then a very nice and smooth drink. Then, it hits you hard in the end with a very sharp alcohol flavor. Leaves my mouth feeling like I just did a shot of hard liquor. 

No bitterness. Smooth. But rather dry in the finish. Not as bad as a serious IPA, but still dries my mouth up more than I like. Very good, very enjoyable for this, but not anything I will drink again. 

Celebrated this beer with Miller, Steve, Jason, Snow and Claire while we were in Chicago at Headquarters Beercade.
