wolfcarnival (101) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 16, 2014
Bottle in beergeek with cam and pavel. had it on the way to 100. pours jet black with a small tan head. smells of coffee, chocolate, raisins, burnt toffee. taste delivers what the aroma promised. coffee right away, moving to the sweeter choco, then a bitter hoppy finish. more complex and bitter than the espresso stout. maybe it was a bit too much for me. really great for what it is though

eduardovl (867) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle served in a snifter glass. A: Pours a deep and dark brown color forming a small but persistent bubbled beige to brown head. Few spotty lacings are left in the glass S: Very roasted with strong notes of coffee. Notes of dark chocolate and chocolate malts. Really amazing in the nose. Some alcohol is felt in the end T: Strong roasted malts and slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of coffee. Strong roasted malts bitterness in the end M: Heavy molasses body. Low carbonation. Roasted malts bitterness in the aftertaste O: Great coffee Stout. Quite good drinkability considering that it’s a 11.5% ABV beer. It does not seem to be that strong [ BA Review @ 4/29/2013 ]

Vestergaard (402) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2014
Bottle, 33cl. Most likely from the last batch. Pours pitch black with a huge, light brown cola-head. Aroma has obviously looots of fruity espresso-coffee. Some bitter, strong roast, alcohol, burned sugary sweetness, Dark dried fruits, and dark berries as well. Taste as well is just packed with coffee. Has some syrup/brown sugar, a certain alcohol presence, hard roast and more coffee. The beer has some sharp edges, but is overall fairly balanced. Pretty high carbonation, medium full body. Really good stuff!

RasmusOtt (1199) - Aalborg, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2014
Pours black with a fizzy brown head. Aroma has that characteristic kopi smell where the coffee is very light roasted and very fruity. caramel, chocolate, some light roasted malts and overall has that "cold coffee" feel. Taste is more on the roasted side with some roasted malts, light roasted and fruity coffee, cold coffee here as well and some raw vanilla as well. Hides the alcohol very well but the body is a bit weak for a powerful beer like this but overall this comes off very nice and is quite pleasing to drink. I remember the old beer as being a bit more complex though.

adster (427) - HUNGARY - SEP 24, 2014
Olajos, ám leginkább közepesen telt, nem az a motorolajszerű főzet. Vékonyka, tört fehér habot gerjeszt kitöltés után, ami egy keskeny gyűrű formájában marad meg a továbbiakban. Az illata lenyűgöző, a kávé szerelmesei most érezhetik igazán, hogy élnek, ilyen aromákkal szembesülve még Frei Tamás is a levegőbe csapna. Őrölt kávészemek pörkölt hangulata járja át a levegőt egy cseppnyi alkoholos fűszerességgel párosulva, száraz faháncs és fekete föld jelenléte érződik, mely komponensek illatának intenzitása a hőmérséklet emelkedésével egyenes arányban növekszik. Lényegében szénsavtartalom nélküli kortyok következnek ezután, desszertszerű, olajos testét zamatos kávészemek ízhatása tölti meg egészen különleges tartalommal, ami percek múlva is a garatunkban tevékenykedik. Krémes puhaság, és kezdetben igen visszafogott, szinte észrevehetetlen alkoholos szál élesíti a képet, hogy aztán lenyelve egy megfejthetetlen, ételszerűen tartalmas és összetett ízvilágú kép rajzolódjon ki, aminek a középpontjában nyilvánvalóan a kávé pörkölt malátás, karcosan kesernyés jellege áll, az ízek viszont mindeközben olyan helyeken és formában bukkannak fel, ahol és ahogyan nem minden esetben szembesülünk élményekkel sörözgetés közben.

slowrunner77 (5977) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 20, 2014
The coffee aspect of this beer was great, and prevented it from being mediocre. The feel was a bit gassy and overcarbonated for the style, and there was a slight vegetal bitterness (that thankfully went away quite a bit as the beer warmed and openned up). A touch of smoke, lots of young coffee beans, chocolate. Nice bittersweet beer, though I was hoping for better."

Bottle. Pours very dark black with fine tan head, settles quickly with moderate lace. Aroma is roasted, chocolate, nutty, and mildly spicy. Tastes roasted, nutty, toffee and chocolate, coffee, with a sweet, caramel, mocha finish. Moderate carbonation, medium body, and smooth finish.

tectactoe (2042) - Michigan, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle: Jet black pour; there’s about a 6:1 ratio of head to actual beer in my glass, even with a modest pour. Dafuq is this. Chunky, porous, brittle, deep khaki head. Takes a goddamn decade to recede, too. Sticky. fat lacing, everywhere. Milky chocolate aroma; vague dark fruitiness, grassy tones, slight roast... Maybe some coffee? Not as "coffee heavy" as I’d expect. The taste is another story. Huge roast, scorched & burnt coffee bean flavor out of the gate. The heavy char is quickly blunted by an undercurrent of mocha & lactose-like sweetness that rushes in. Hint of burnt caramel, with some reciprocating dark chocolate & brown sugar. Finishes by coating your palate with cold pressed, full city roasted coffee. Not explicitly "kopi", I guess, just regular ol’ coffee. A good stout, but a weird stout. There’s something strangely compelling about it.
