3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted @home on 15/09/2012.
The bottle was filled almost by the top!
Pours of dark-dark brown, slightly ruby color with a small but beatiful head.
That head dissapears quickly, leaving nice lacing.
Aroma is mostly a mix of alcohol plus you-know-that-great-coffee, with notes of brown sugar, roasted barley and vanilla.
Taste is coffee upfront, following by an alcohol wave again.
Aftertaste has surprisingly good amount of bitterness, both from hops and roasted barley.
So well, good, medium body beer, but slightly lacking of complexity.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2oz bottle, bottled 4/18/12. Impressively large lighter brown foamy head, that goes nowhere. Pitch black color. Literally half my glass is head, had to wait quite a bit before digging into this. Thick webs of lace. Mmmm... Dat kopi luwak aroma. Such massive and big coffee. Very soft, lighter carbonation. Very dry texture. Long coffee aftertaste.... roasty, but coffee foremost. Light earthy hops, dark chocolate. Surprisingly light body, for the ABV. Big bitter taste, light alcohol bite. Some dark fruit, wood, light licorice, lightly burnt malts. Prickly mouthfeel, not what I’d call "chewy". Physically challenging to drink at first (because of the ridiculous head) but gets more and more delicious as you go. Rate of intake was most definitely a sharp upward curve. A coffee bomb is fun every now and then, and nothing pulls it off quite like a kopi luwak brew.

Bottle to oversized snifter (2012 vintage; bottled April 18th). Looks good; black with ample dark-beige head that slowly dissipates into lacing. Smells roasty and malty. Tastes like it smells with notes of coffee present. Good on the palate. Good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
180 ML nip bottle poured into a snifter
Thanks to Baggio for the bottle
A--- OH, it wants to be a gusher. Careful opening saved that. Thanks other reviewers :). Pours a dark muddy, murky brown. Settles in the glass a murky black with slight tints of brown and ruby. One finger mocha colored head that is thick and stays at one finger for a bit. Does recede to a layer of thick film. Couple spots of lacing.
S-- Lots of coffee. Underneath the big coffee nose is some milk chocolate, roast and citrus.
T-- Coffee, milk chocolate, bittering citrus hops, and roast.
M-- Full bodied and low carbonation. Coffee does smooth out in the mouth and get more of milk chocolate, roast, grapefruit and pine. Good acidic dry coffee finish.
O-- Nice beer. Nothing that wows but a good beer.

Bottle from Ølbutikken. Black with a big and lasting light brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, heavy coffee and a little vegetables. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and rather bitter finish. Oily. 160812

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with a little sediment and a mocha head that fades leaving a little lacing. Aroma is bitter coffee, ash, roasted malt. Taste is pretty much the same as the aroma.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad!
The beer is quite over-carbonated. As the head gradually fades, the color is finally revealed...dark brown. Shocker. Ample lacing sticks to the sides of the tulip glass. The aroma brings roast, alcohol, subtle coffee. The taste is alright, with coffee and roast notes. Unfortunately, the beer is indeed over-carbonated, adversely affecting every aspect of the beer. Oh well. Not nearly on the same level with the 666.

Pours dark brown wiht a thick foamy tan head and a strong coffee and chocolate aroma. There is a smoky coffee and anise flavor with lots of carbonation on the palate and a warming alcohol trail.

De geur van een zwaar donker bier en de smaak van een redelijke espresso. Voelt dik aan in je mond en er komt een echt koffie gevoel bij.
Lekker en wel even laten koelen voordat je hem drinkt
