A splendid, incredibly strong imperial coffee stout. There is no head at all, its inky and oil-like. Delicious, though.

PapaVillum (439) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2014
33 cl / 330 ml, flaske, 11,2 % ABV, købt i Barley Wine i CPH City, 27. juni 2014. Ibenholt-farvet/ dyb sort Imperial Coffee Stout med minimalt skum, dvs. kun kant og overflade (skænket i nattens mørke) I næsen er der kaffe, chokolade, duft af lade. Uovertruffen smag! En rigtig smag af Stout med en tilpas, næsten usynlig sødme, og kaffesmagen er bare elegant. Meget behagelig, fuldendt og i meget fin balance. Ingen sønderlige tegn i smagen på, at vi har at gøre med en øl i tocifrede procenter. Mundfølelsen er som sædvane hos De Molen noget helt specielt: fin, silkeblød, kuldioxid nærmest ikke-eksisterende og så alligevel til stede... topklasse. Og for en ordens skyld: kraftigt nedskruet indhold af kuldioxid. Eftersmagen sidder længe i mundvigen og svælget - igen er alt, som det skal være. Findes der en bedre kaffe Stout? Kan denne forbedres? Store og meget svære spørgsmål for denne øl er i sin klasse nærmest perfekt!

Poured from a bottle. Retained light brown head. Incredible coffee and malty aroma, though I could almost taste the alcohol before I sipped. Taste replicated the aroma almost perfectly. Strong alcohol aftertaste. Delicious, though not for the faint of liver. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A bottle stamped 05/09/2011 - hoping that’s a born-on date [probably the highest fill line I’ve seen, too]. This is the 11.2% version. Nose explodes with coffee aroma, bitter and earth with heavy dark chocolate, but there’s also a nice swirl roast, syrupy sweet plums, and licorice. Lesser grapes and raisins, just a touch of alcohol showing and there’s a mild aura of candyish sweetness. Absolutely phenomenal nose. Brown-black body with a creamy, rocky (but short) light brown head. Taste is initially only lightly sweet, gives way to bitterness and mild (but classy) alcohol burn toward the end, when the chocolate and coffee fade to a long mocha aftertaste. Only a medium body. Roast and darker, earthier flavors backed off somewhat in the mouth, where the fruitier notes win out, with touches of orange and even peach, though there is espresso crema smeared all around the edges. Oily medium body is creamy and swishy with layers. Pumpernickel crust and sultry burned tones. Bottom of the glass reveals, naturally, splashes of neutral yeast and lightly acrid coffee grounds. Dangerously drinkable. This is either the second or third civet poop brew I’ve had, and by far the best (though I’m willing to reconsider, dearest Mikel, if you send me another bottle!); results may vary, especially for the thimble drinkers, but on this day, in this moment, this is one of the best-fitting drinking experiences I’ve had.

Drank from a snifter. Upon opening the bottle the distinct smell that only Kopi can provide filled the room. A few whiffs from the top of the glass saturated my senses with a brimming cup of coffee. Hints of chocolate topped it off for an amazing aroma. Thickest De Molen beer I’ve had which is great because I’ve been put off by how thin most of their beers are. Taste is huge coffee and chocolate, some woody oaky flavors as well, and a nice bit of hops to round it off. This is a great beer and I hope to get my hands on more.

A - Dark black with a big finger of frothy chocolate-khaki head. Fades very slowly. S - Roasted coffee, chocolate and caramel malts, cocoa, black licorice, molasses, a bit of dark fruits, some booze. T - Roasted coffee, some coffee bitterness, chocolate and caramel malts, bakers cocoa, black licorice, molasses, prunes, raisins, and other dark fruits, and a bit of booze. M - Full bodied, moderate carbonation. Smooth and creamy with a sweet, roasted, bitter, and warming finish. D - The coffee flavor is great here, as is the overall balance and mouthfeel.

BeerBaboon (1564) - FINLAND - MAY 20, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2013 Dark beer with light brown head. Plenty of fresh roasted coffee in the aroma and flavour. Reminds me a lot of Struise’s Mocha Bomb. Roasted malt and lots of great coffee.

ShivanDragon (1590) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 24, 2013
bruin/zwart met minimaal bruine kraag
aroma: gebrande mouten, hout, moutig, koffie, geroosterde mouten, koffi.. koffie en nog eens koffie..
smaken: medium zoet, medium bitter, sterk gemout, steenkool, koffie
medium tot volle body, laag co2, afdronk: nadrukkelijk koffie/kruidig en zoetig
aroma net iets té overheersend.
na de sterke aroma had ik een zéér bitter koffie/chocolade bier verwacht. Echter viel dit reuze mee, dit bier overtreft zelfs mijn verwachtingen. Uiteraard een sterke geroosterde/gebrande koffie/mouten chocolade en een zeer flinke alcohol toets. echter totaal niet overdreven. Heerlijke uitgesproken smaken.
verhaal achter de kopi loewak is ook leuk om te weten, uit gescheten gebrande bonen

Hammy78 (739) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2014
Bottle from Kensington Wine Merchant. Opaque pour, massive brown head, little lace spots, but not many. Nose is sweet sugary malt, and coffee, cocoa. Tastes sugary sweet, coffee, a bit bitter, milk chocolate, brown sugar, vanilla. There is an almost savoury side to this too. This is the best De Molen beer I’ve had the pleasure of tasting. It’s really a shame they will no longer brew this.
