Hand bottled, halloween tasting @ cgarvieuk. Black colour, no head. Aroma is absolutely great: roasted malts, coffee, tabacco, licorice, bit of candy. Flavour is deep roasted malts, coffee, tobacco, licorice. Very bitter, very dense. Low carbonation. Very happy to be able to try this one.

Had the pleasure to enjoy this together with Mikkel. Shared a "six-pack" handbottled beautys that normally only are available at the brewery. The pour is black black black with a fine dark brown head that stays there all through the glass. Heavy curtains when rolled in the glass. The aroma is packed with bitter freshly made coffee notes. Lots of cacao, wooten notes, a little fart somewhere. The taste is so smooth with a nice sweet and very balanced taste that fades out in a somehow raw bitterness with the sweet notes as backing group with edgy salty notes, that traditionally goes along with an russian imperial stout. Reminds me a little of a cake dough. Its roasted to the max, but never gets over the top. The palate is creamy and very dilicious. Not to thick, but spot on. The finish is dominated of the coffee. Best imperial stout I have had this year.

Cigar city final push poured into a snifter.... Aroma jumps out before I can even admire the pour... Pours a deep black as night pour, very slick oily and impenetrable. A careful pour didn’t yield much head but a light swirled revealed a definitive darker tan head... Assertive and robust, strong amazingly fresh coffee nose, roasty with some subtle yet fair vanilla notes on the backend. Almost like fresh pressed beans, the aroma is splendid... Flavors fall just a tad short of the nose but still quite delicious. Silky smooth with in your face fresh coffee action from beginning to end supplemented by velvety bittersweet chocolate. Very light carbonation which def doesn’t detract yet enhances it to expose the natural flavors. Some light coffee rind finish that puts a nice ending to a great tasting experience. 10/4/8/4/17

sample from the pitcher @ GABF on 9/17/10. pitch black oily pour with a small tan head (imagine it would be a bit stronger in a snifter glass). intense deep roasted coffee nose with some big malts. the Kopi Lowak coffee is so dark and intense - love it! huge coffee infused body with layers of chocolate. dark coffee ground finish with more chocolate notes and big roasted malts. this is the perfect coffee beer.
