roasted lightly bitter coffee beer. initial taste is very smooth and soft medium sweet. Towards the end more dry and bitter. Leaves a coffee taste in the mouth. Very good but needs a bit of oomph to rise to the top.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (330 ml). From JulienHuxley, thanks! Black with a medium mostly lasting brown head and some lacing. Aroma is a burst of coffee and roasted notes. I’m usually not a fan of Kopi Luwak in beer, but it fits pretty good here. There’s also dark chocolate, caramel and some green-ish notes. Taste is also dominated by coffee and roasted notes along dark chocolate, caramel and a light roasted finish. Light warming alcohol. Medium to full body. Moderate carbonation. Rich and creamy mouthfeel. Very tasty coffee RIS. Coffee forward, but the balance isn’t bad. Well executed!
