Tmoney99 (13466) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2016
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy tan head that lasted with good lacing. Aroma was a moderate toasted malt and earthy coffee. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium complex roasted coffee and malt sweet flavor and a medium complex dark sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a solid beer.

alexsdad06 (9007) - Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2016
22 oz bottle shared with the group. Pours dark brown to black in color with a thin khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, dark chocolate, mild Kopi luwak character, sweet oatmeal, hints of a tart character, thinner body than I like in an imperial stout, these seemed like a good idea but just fall short in my opinion.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2016
22oz bottle, thanks to alexsdad06 for sharing. Dark brown, kind of red, slight clear color. Ring of off-white kind of khaki head. Some ridges of lace. A lot of the belgian character comes through, dark fruit, mild spice. Just a touch of coffee, a lot less kopi luwak character than I hoped for. Kind of thin body for an imperial stout. Moderate to bigger sweet, mild sugary. Light bitter. Just a mild alcohol warmth. Touch of tart. Touch of oxidization. Some milk chocolate. Solid, but a little underwhelming.

On tap at the brewery. It ours dark brown with a tan head. The aroma is chocolaty and not so coffee forward. Nice soft, notes of roasted malt. The flavor is the same. Nice stuff. Could’ve used more coffee though.

snoworsummer (4692) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Cask at the brewery. Pours black with a moderate tan head. Smells like roasted coffee, orange peel, and chocolate. Tastes like roasted malt, molasses, orange rind, chocolate, and some dry coffee. Medium body and low carbonation.

bhensonb (14090) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 23, 2015
Capped 750 from Bine & Vine. Pours dark brn/blk with a slight, transient tan head. Aroma of slightly burnt dark malt, maybe some alcohol, and definitely coffee notes. And chocolate. Full bodied. Flavor seems coffee, moving towards chocolate, with some smooth toasted/burnt malt. It all coalesces quickly into a fairly complex flavor mix. Not dry, but definitely not sweet. Has a bitter which could be burnt malt or hop. Finishes pretty tasty, with dark chocolate primary and weasel following along. Good drink.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle and served in tulip: deep brown with fading head but okay lacing. #3 of the variants I have tried, so far I am very impressed with the overall quality. Unlike the others which are barreled aged, this one is coffee imbued with the rarer Civit pooped java. Very much plays the part with roasted overtones and smooth oats, cocoa, molasses, creme brulé and earthy faint smoke. Okay, this is my least favorite so far of the selections only due to having slightly lesser complexity and a bit thinner mouthfeel... So okay it is only very good versus excellent. It is like listing your three favorite songs from an artist... Something has to be #3
