dnstone (2651) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Coffee aroma with slight aple liqor notes. Flat and deep brown with no head. Perplexing...calvados is prominent with a coffee finish. A bit too liquor-ish for me. Notes: Borefts fest

Koelschtrinker (17308) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Etwas wässriger Antrunk, der später aber malzig-süße Noten offenbart. Dann geht die Malzigkeit in die Cognac Richtung, dennoch bleibt das Bier vergleichsweise mild. Stumpfer Abgang mit spürbaren Alkohol- und Bitternoten. Naja. 12/9/10/12//11

kermis (11038) - Where the wild whales are, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2011
On draft at Borefts beer festival 2010. The calvados completely overpowered the normal excellent flavors of the beer and unfortunately ruined it for me.

harrisoni (17282) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2010
At Borefts BF 2010. Served too cold. Very lovely coffee. Just a touch of apple on there at the end. Slight sourness, some sweet fruits. Good coffee, but I prefer the regular.

Christian (12885) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2010
Cloudy brown with no head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and hints of calvados and oak. Dry and almost a little tart flavour with notable apple and calvados character on top of coffee and roasted flavours. Rounded and balanced flavour but lacks the big, pleasant mouthfeel usually associated with De Molen

Holy (837) - GERMANY - DEC 8, 2010

BigMomma (226) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 24, 2010
UPDATED: APR 19, 2011 On tap at the 2nd BBF.
Has a black color with absolutely no head... .The aroma is an overpowered mix of calvados, alcohol and vanilla. All the subtleties of the Kopi Luwak not noticeable do to this agressive mix. The flavors are much the same as the aroma, but luckely there is still some fruitiness and roasted espresso left from the original.
If the calvados barrel aging would be much more elegant, just like the base beer, this would be a magnificent beer. Unfortunately it now stays just a decent beer that is beneath the level of the base beer.
