3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle and served in my Iechyd Da snifter: Pours a deep brown with an initial big tan head but that fades quickly and left minimal lacework upon the glassware. The aroma smacks of coffee, roast, toast, chocolate, walnuts, char, and tobacco malt notes along with a moderate helping of grassy and herbal hops. The taste follows suit with dominate coffee overtones supported by sweet and roasted malts. Some noble hop and alpha hop character along with a dash of cavendish pipe tobacco. The mouth feel is lively and ashy, a bit thin but that is expected with the majority of coffee stouts. Overall a very nice brew but an utter waste of a rare coffee just to make a statement. Any solid single origin coffee would have work just as well, perhaps or likely better.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with lots of mocha head. Nice aromas of fresh coffee, lactose, strawberries, dark fruit, toffee. A bit thin for an imperial stout but the alcohol is no where to be found. Just fantastic coffee, red fruit, and sweet cream flavors. Great stuff.

330ml bottle from Beers of Europe, and also trade with Benzai. Pours pitch black with non-existent head. Completely flat, as is often the case. Some mediocre bitter coffee notes alongside slick dumbed down roasted malts. A bit disappointing.

BOTTLE 33 CL from dcmchew. BOTTLED 24-JAN-2013.
Coffee leftovers with some weird stale semi-fermented notes, some black malt sweetness in the background. Not much sweetness, fruitiness or real roast. The aftertaste is plain manure. The nastiest stout I ever had.

0,33l fles volgens mij bij vonk Zaandam vandaan. Diep zwart zonder noemenswaardige schuimkraag. Wat een intense geur en smaakbeleving geroosterde en gerookte mout maar daarbovenuit de extreem volle kopi loewak koffie met een diepe bitter, zure afdronk die mintuten je mond blijft vullen. erg bijzonder.
