Botella. Menos café del esperado predomina el chocolate con dosis de dulce de leche acabando seca y lupulada. Le falta cuerpo

Barwa: ciemna, nie przejrzysta nawet pod światło. Piana kremowa, niewielka, niemal natychmiast opadająca, ale ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Wysycenie niskie. Całość dość oleista. Aromat: mieszanka kawy, czekolady i ciemnych słodów z lekką kwaskowością. Ogólnie przyjemny, alkohol praktycznie nie wyczuwalny. Smak: na pierwszym miejscu słodycz, potem lekka kwaskowość i kawa. Następnie znowu słodycz i alkoholowy finisz, ale dość łagodny. Kopi Loewak jest warzone z dodatkiem kawy luwak, bodaj najdroższej na świecie. Oszczędzę szczegółów produkcji (dla ciekawych http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kopi_luwak), ale ogólnie jest ona interesująca i dość łagodna. Przekłada się to na aromat i smak tego piwa, w którym (mimo wysokiej mocy), alkohol nie jest w zasadzie wyczuwalny. Warto sięgnąć po butelkę tego trunku, bowiem, jeśli wierzyć serwisowi RateBeer w październiku ubiegłego roku browar De Molen ogłosił, iż zaprzestaje produkcji piwa z dodatkiem wspomnianej kawy. Ostatnia szansa...

Bottle shared at Herr Schmitt’s gaff. Big thanks to Leighton. Aroma is big earthy nutty veg roast coffee bean. Some green pepper in the nose. Black dark crown colour pour with a lasting tan head. Flavour is smooth roast coffee, coffee beans, earthy with a touch of manure. Really nice smooth creamy palate. Lingering choc and earthy coffee.

Leighton (10544) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle shard at Garbage Night II - London. Pours deep brown-black with a thick, tight beige cream head. The nose has definite coffee, some burnt grounds, chocolate. Medium to big sweet flavor with lots of chocolate cake, coffee ice cream, dark bread, raisins. Medium to full bodied with fairly lively carbonation. Impressively mild alcohol presence to finish, lots more sugary coffee and milk chocolate, slight earthy bitterness. Very tasty and drinkable.

Scopey (6326) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle at Leighton. It pours near black with a thick tan head. The nose is cocoa, toasty, coffee, roasted malt, rocky road, light spice and light orange peel. The taste is rich roast, coffee, earth, dirt, toast, chocolate, mild bitterness, faint bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Alright, pretty soft and rounded. I’m still not a massive fan of kopi, but hey ho...

Dohny (207) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 8, 2014
Poured from bottle. Clear dark brown, small beige head. Aroma: peppery, coffee. Medium sweet with some soure tones. Full body, oily texture, warming alcohol, low carbonation. Nice winter beer.

JBPortland (684) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 2, 2014
12oz bottle dated 4/12 pours inky brown black with huge 3 finger head, appears over-carbonated. Nose is roasty nutty coffee and cream, sone subtle dark fruits. Taste is earthy dark fruits and coffee, some subtle berry, bitter roastiness. Finish is bitter coffee, subtle fruitiness, roasty nuts and earthy dark chocolate, some sweet hershey syrup notes. A bit thin. Definitely over-carbed which gives it a soda like aspect. Just ok.

crossovert (7021) - Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Looks like it was bottled over a year ago. Black pour, anally explosive brown head. Demolen needs to start force carbing... Smell has come metallic notes, caramel, coffee, cocoa, biscuit. Not bad. Seriously the ead on this beer won’t recede. Flavor is nicely bitter, not too too sweet, booze is there nad accentuated by the poor mouthfeel. Nice cocoa and coffee. Its a bit of a mess but not the worst.

EdwinLitzau (320) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 23, 2014
Pikzawarte kleur, geen schuim. Ruikt gebrand, naar koffie en gekruid. Smaakt goed, maar de koffiesmaak overheerst teveel.

Bosbouw (1136) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - FEB 23, 2014
Gedronken als Wijsbier Luwak Beer. Mooie zwarte kleur met een goede licht bruine kraag. Ruikt duidelijk koffie, geroosterd, vanille, crčme. Smaakt naar een kop koffie met alcohol. Smaakt koffie, geroosterd, vanille. Goede bittere nasmaak. Iets teveel koffie misschien.
