3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle. Opaque black with medium creamy beige head. Dark malt, dark chocolate and cocoa aroma, some alcohol; coffee not really detected. With good will cappuccino in the beginning. Taste starts grainy, carbonation induced, later with a variety of coffee notes, roasted and unroasted, sweet and dry, also "Ovomaltine". The coffee notes I cannot describe in an other way than somewhat "pushing downward", as if hop or sour "upward" notes would be kept under a certain limit. A late entering sourness definitely has its origin in the coffee addendum. This beer brings together coffee notes that may stem from surrogates or from real coffee and deserves a pedagogical merit in this regard. Definitely it is an harmonic integration of corresponding flavours. If it was more fruity and less grainy accentuated I would concede an even better score.

Enticing aroma of licorice in an inky black pour. Flavour is impressively and surprisingly laid-back for the strength with hints of licorice, coffee, and chocolate in a refreshingly tart wrapping. A sublime brew to be honest.

Bottle filled to nearly the cap pours opaque black with enormous tan head. Nose dark roast coffee, slightly spicy, and hint of green vegetables, but not unpleasant. Taste big bitter coffee and bitter dark chocolate. Roasted malt from mid palate through the finish. Balanced by some sweet malt as well. If you’re going to use kopi coffee, might as well make it big.

Pours pitch black with a huge mocha head. Strong aroma of dark chocolate and roasted coffee beans, slight liquorice scent as well. Tastes rich but not too sweet with a dry bitterness. Full body, heavily carbonated, and smooth on the palate. Excellent imperial stout overall.

Bottle (dated 18/4/12) poured into pint. Vigorous, thick tan head, opaque mahogany body. Slightly fruity nose hints at the high alcohol, with coffee notes predominating. Very dense, rich flavor of roasted malts, bit of plums? Finish seems to go on forever, malt and coffee. A huge, rich, bold stout.
