tfredvik (1099) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 4, 2014
Very dark brown body with a tiny, frothy head consisting of a few big, light brown bubbles. The bubbles disappear quite fast, and little lacing is left on the glass. The aroma malty, roasted, strong and very dominated by dry bitter coffee and old Thermosģ. Some sweet vinous notes in the back. Also strong flavours of dry coffee, and not much else. Moderate sweet taste and a long-lasting heavy bitter finish. The body is full, the texture is oily but with a dry finish, the carbonation is very soft. A good one, although a bit to focused on the coffee. And I spent the evening reading about the horrible condition under which civets are held. Never going to buy another kopi luwak beer again.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 1 year after bottling, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

NeuroPliny (143) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 1, 2014
Pours dark brown/black from a 330 mL bottle. Generous beige head. There is coffee on the nose as promised, but also raisin, prune, dried fruit, molasses, and spices. The flavour delivers what the nose promises with well polished hops taking the edge off the sweetness and giving it a crisp aftertaste. Awesome entry from De Molen.

Abio (1569) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JAN 25, 2014
Pitch black with no head. Hoppy, some coffee. A bit to simple and earthy for my taste.

Black as black can be. No head on mine. Thatís odd but not putting me off one bit. Itís quite sticky and viscous, sweet and oakey. Lots of coffee and chocolate in the malt. Smooth and potent and I guess thatís also caffeine giving me a buzz.

Ratman197 (9670) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee, bitter chocolate and light earthiness. Palate was medium to full bodied and smooth. Flavors of dark chocolate, coffee and roasted malt with a smooth lingering chocolate coffee finish.

maekchu (2061) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle. Massive chocolate/coffee nose, lots of sweet dark fruit, berries, raw meat, some fumes. Pitch black, with a constant one-finger dark tan head. Great coffee initial, smooth and sweet chocolate in mid palate, creamy and delicious. Medium-heavy body. A great stout. The coffee is always present but does not overwhelm. Not overboiled or scorched. Smooth and thick.

hackobock (1306) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 12, 2014
Bottle, bottled April 18 2012. Pours dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma has lots of coffee, smooth sweet notes of red berries, dark sugars. Taste is coffee with a roasted bitter chocolate note. Medium body, lively carbonation.

JorisPPattyn (7881) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 6, 2014
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...

tricksta_p (1023) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2014
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.
