Leighton (10774) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2013
Growler at RBWG 2013. Pours oily brown with a faint, brown head. Huge, deep espresso aroma, some burnt malts. Big sweet flavor with dark, juicy berries, rich coffee, dark sugars. Full bodied with soft carbonation, faint warmth to finish, some syrupy dark sugars, more espresso, dark berries. Good stuff. Not a typical American impy stout.

Coffee smell. Coffee color. Coffee taste. Coffee. It has staying power and a lingering coffee taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Growler at RBWG. Thanks whomever brought this. Aroma of vanilla, dark coffee. Wow, rich, thick, and bold. Coffee and vanilla. The same ashy flavor as regular Zhukov but smooth as hell through the finish. Oak, vanilla and coffee... Amazing

Growler to taster at RBWG (BIG thanks to whoever brought this - maybe Danny!). Looks good; pitch black and viscous. Smells good too; big malt with a heavy Kopi influence). Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. Good shit (literally).

Pours jet black with no head. Aroma of black coffee, dark chocolate and caramel. Taste follows, thick chocolatey and chewy. This beer is phenomenal. So thick, so chewy so chocolatey, great coffee notes. Rediculous! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks mate, for this one! Oily opaque black beer, tiny chocolate coloured head. Very mild carbonation. Smooth palate, silky. Nose of coffee and suppressed fruit. Brief showing of a little cream before a big coffee hit. Deep rich coffee with a fruity tangy leading edge. The coffee just keeps going! The aftertaste, pure espresso. Nice balance of coffee and tangy fruits. A warming afterglow finishes things off nicely.

Growler shard by ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad! The beer is black with a thin beige collar that leaves some oily, filmy lacing on the snifter. The aroma offers a huge coffee presence. Extremely rich, dark, roasty. The Marshal Zhukov’s, which is a lovely imperial stout in its own right, serves as a terrific base for the Kopi Luwak coffee. Alcohol is masked extremely well. A superb example of a coffee stout.

BeerDeltaBravo (53) - Oregon, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Pours a murky black with almost no head. Half-decent lacing. Absolutely disgusting lemony aroma, with notes of strawberry and corn. Overweening maple malt backbone, with vanilla and lilac. Chalky mouthfeel and long finish.

drabmuh (194) - Maryland, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Thanks Brad. Served in a snifter. Beer is black, pitch black, lazy head, small bubbles, tan / brown, no lacing, low carbonation. This is from a growler. Beer smells like coffee and chocolate, strong, roast, nice. Beer is smooth and sweet with a nice dark roastiness at the back end. I really liked this beer and I would have it again.

Huge, huge thanks to ygtbsm94 for sharing this growler. Served in a snifter. Pours black with a really nice mocha head. Good retention and spotty lacing with a thin collar throughout. The nose has a really nice bit of coffee. Really intense and great coffee aroma with excellent notes of chocolate with a light bit of roast in the background. Flavor is intense coffee followed by dark chocolate and a touch of sweetness. Body is full with no alcohol and plenty of coffee. Smooth, smooth finish. Absolutely fantastic. Much better than any of the BA Hunahpu’s.
