3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted as Wijsbier Luwak Beer Exclusive StoutViscous as molasses, but somehow, a very dense and fine, cream to rust-brown head builds up, turning very stable and going down with classical lacerings; the beer being near-black brown. Sweet & burnt nose. Coffee, wood, molasses, treacle, scorched sugar. Bitter-roasted-burnt - but with a serious, chocolate-like sweetness very present in the background. Finish has something metallic-bitter, getting quinine-like in the aftertaste, long-lingering. Very thick and velvety MF, despite the sluggish pour, feeling quite well-carbonated. I canít get excited over this one. And then thereís the poor sh*tting animal...

Pours a pitch black with no head to speak of. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, coffee, dark chocolate, more coffee. Flavour is sweet mocha, dark chocolate. Very nice coffee stout. However, after reading about the cruelty behind the Kopi Loewak coffee, I am glad De Molen chose to stop brewing this beer.

Biiter stout, weinig zout en licht ntanine koffie smaak. Zwaar maar met een milde nasmaak, niet heel hoppig.

On tap at Beermongers. Pours a dark black color with a medium brown head. A huge pepper nose, roast and coffee. The flavor is more heavy sweet coffee, comes in as green pepper, vanilla, toffee. Not my favorite thing. Pretty sweet, milky. A solid coffee beer.

This one poured a darker brown color with a lighter tan head. Aroma was of coffee, soy, roast and dark chocolate. Flavor was mainly dark chocolate and roasted coffee, still thin though and a bit hollow.

Had on draft at Beer Mongers. Big jalapeno coffee notes, chocolate, coffee. The coffee character in this beer is all pepper, not very pleasant.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the Beer Monger, Portland.
Black pour, tan head with long lived lacing. Ashen aroma, more so than I like, tobacco smoke and black coffee. The coffee brings a bright acidity to the flavor, melding with dark molasssy fresh-baked bread. Relatively sweet flavor -- a lot of sugar in this particular coffee. Quite hot. Iím not so impressed by this one and am glad I have only 4oz to make my way through.

Itís hard not to like this. It gets even better as it warms in the glass. Loads of coffee, some hint of chocolate and a soft carbonation. No hint of alcohol content. As use of coffee in beer goes this is cracking. Glad I had one, and if you can you should have one too, regardless of the way the coffee is harvested,

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap @ The BeerMongers... Poured jet black with a huge, rocky, frothy, light brown head with lots of retention. Aroma of acidic coffee and roastiness. Very nice tasting. And the coffee does a decent job covering up the higher ABV. Intense acidic and highly roasted coffee yet smooth, drinkable, and not too heavy. Really wonderful drinking coffee stout.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat. Pours black with a small tanned head. Aroma of fresh ground coffee, light roast, sweet chocolate. Taste is light warming, chilli and alcohols, lots of roasted fresh coffee, light dry & bitter finish, lovely lingering dry coffee paired with chocolate.
