4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33 cl bottle, served in snifter glass. Poured black with a two finger tan head. Aroma: roasted espresso beans, licorice, dark chocolate, vanilla, dark fruit, toffee. Taste: loads and loads of roasted espresso beans. salty licorice, dark chocolate, black currants, dark fruit, vanilla, raisin bread, toffee, haagse hopjes (dutch caramel/coffee treat). Medium to full body with a long roasted, bittersweet finish. Roasted espresso dominance in this imperial stout. Good brew, one of the best beers I’ve tasted with coffee being used in the brewing process.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
It’s great to taste a coffee stout where one can clearly taste the coffee character. Just like the real thing but sweeter. Pronounced length of roast flavour and indeed a spice like character on the nose. I think this is a touch under 10% but there is almost a feather touch to this beer. Might be the best coffee infused beer I have tasted.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from 16th Street Liquor store. Pours an opaque dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is leather, some chocolate notes. Oxidized? The same character taste with grassy and roasted malt bitterness. Slightly boozy. Bready, roasted malt bitterness aftertaste. Coffee is almost disappeared, unfortunately, it didn’t age well as De Molen Kopi Loewak. Needs to be reviewed when it is fresh.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: lots of coffee but very roasty and sweet; Appearance: pitch black with thin tan head that dissipates fairly quickly; Taste: follows nose; smooth, boozy, delicious; Palate: very heavy body with long, sweet-coffee finish; Overall: don’t know if it’s the Italian coffee beans, but this is really good. A great surprise.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a bottle. The sweet chocolate and coffee milkshake aroma is met with a sweet but overly so coffee finish.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
33 cl. bottle @ home, gift from Luc.
Black with a beige head. Roasted coffee aroma. Taste is quite sweet and almost all coffee-like sensation. No roasted malts or hopbitterness, only coffee roastiness and bitterness. To me it felt and tasted a bit unbalanced with a heavy emphasis on the coffee.
