Bottle from Bierkoning, wanted to try this one ever since I found about it. Pours motor oil black with medium beige head, didn’t last. Very cool looking sticky lacing around the inner glass. Nose is lightly roasted coffee, chocolate, and vtg wood. Flavor is dark chocolate, green pepper, espresso bean, barrel roast, and some light vanilla. Seems this will be my last shit brews I get to try. Nice one to go out with.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled on sept 13 2013, large sample. Dark color, short brown lacing. Aroma of huge coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts. Quite bitter in taste, roasty, lots of chocolate, just a hint of sweetness. Regular H&V heavily dominated by coffee, a bit too much for me actually. Lots of flavor, thats for sure.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle with thanks to MrHangover! Pours pitch black with a small secondary head, brown, dissipating fairly quickly leaving a ring that laces fairly well. Aroma is coffee, roasty, chocolate, bit of ashtray. Flavor follows suit, lightly sweet and good bitterness, some coffee acidity. Coffee and coffee grounds flavors througout intermingled with chocolate, leading to a bitter far finish. Full bodied and creamy in the mouth. Not much ABV burning going on here. Excellent non BA stout for sure, not sure that the Kopi is any better than the regular tho.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home from the De Molen bottle shop. Minimal 'phut' on opening made me a bit worried that this had no condition, but does generate a tiny white head on the jet black body. Sweet roasted coffee dominates the aroma, like Camp syrup. Thick in the mouth, chocolate syrup, espresso loaded with sugar, big roast, ash and charcoal. Roast and hop stays with you long after the swallow. Bottle gone far too soon...
