Aroma is coffee and something very strong which I don’t have the word for. Black beer, small long lasting head. Taste is classic licorice chocolate and a hint of spicyness which lingers on the tongue. Maybe a bit of alcohol pushing through.

BBB63 (6122) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Bottle and served in my Iechyd Da snifter: Pours a deep brown with an initial big tan head but that fades quickly and left minimal lacework upon the glassware. The aroma smacks of coffee, roast, toast, chocolate, walnuts, char, and tobacco malt notes along with a moderate helping of grassy and herbal hops. The taste follows suit with dominate coffee overtones supported by sweet and roasted malts. Some noble hop and alpha hop character along with a dash of cavendish pipe tobacco. The mouth feel is lively and ashy, a bit thin but that is expected with the majority of coffee stouts. Overall a very nice brew but an utter waste of a rare coffee just to make a statement. Any solid single origin coffee would have work just as well, perhaps or likely better.

bytemesis (3441) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark reddish black with a large brown creamy head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is strong espresso, dark roasted malts, tobacco. Flavor about the same, intense coffee, light sweetness and significant bitterness. A bit more watery than expected, and a quite astringent, which detracts from an otherwise nice beer.

deyholla (6861) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Bottle shared with Sarah. Pours near black with a light brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma is full of a strong coffee/espresso with some roasted malts and a bit of dark chocolate. Flavor is intense coffee throughout with just a bit of roasted malt and dark grains.

Theydon_Bois (9725) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2012
Bottle (thanks to Dennis in an IP trade) at home 22/10/12. Pitch black with a large bubbly coffee head that soon thins. Nose is a full on coffee assault, beans, dry roast, roast malt. Great coffee stout aroma. Tastes of dry roast malt, good full on roast coffee bean flavours. A little wood, sweet sugars. Full bodied with light spritzy carbonation leading to a dry and sweet finish. Good imperial coffee stout perhaps let down a little by being overly sweet.

mcberko (6885) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2012
12 oz. bottle, pours black with a large foamy beige head. Aroma is totally dominated by the kopi luwak coffee, very dark roasted at that, with little else. Flavour is extremely potent, with ridiculously dark roasted coffee beans, though not really burnt, some feint charred notes, more coffee and more coffee. Carbonation is quite lively, especially for an impie stout- similar to the 2010 version from memory. When you want a coffee impie stout, hard to go wrong with this dark roasted coffee bomb. Excellent.

jesperhammer (3034) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2012
19-OCT-2012, bottle @home, from Fish & Beer. Black with huge light brown head. Roasted aroma with loads of coffee. Taste is roasted with coffee and chocolate. A touch of dusty roast. Alcohol is present. Average to soft carbonation, full body but in no way syrup’y. Finish is bitter from roasted malts as well as hops. Very fine stout.

JohnnyJ (4486) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Bottle. Deep black pour, small tan head. Lots of freshly ground coffee, chocolate, medium roast, caramel sweetness, and sweet cocoa. Pretty tasty.

JaBier (4989) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle shared by a friend. Pours darkest brown with a huge beige head. Aroma of sweet chocolate, but full of roasty coffee as well. Malty flavor with dark chocolate character before a roasty coffee finish.

brokensail (11371) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Pours an impenetrable black with a khaki head. Huge coffee aroma, tons of chocolate, and lots of roasted malt, too. There’s a bit of molasses sweetness, toffee, and a hint of alcohol. The coffee flavor is very pronounced, too. Dark and semi-sweet chocolate, toffee, and a lot of roasted malt. Really an excellent beer.
