Bottle. 9.5%. Black with tiny beige head, fastly diminishing. Aroma: coffee, caramel, burned malts, vanilla. Taste of licorice, coffee, burned chocolate and caramel. The texture is oily. The beer is a bit dry, and aftertaste is not that long.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not that much coffee in the aroma, mostly cherry liquor, dark bread and some unpleasant, "dry" note
Taste is better, its sweet, medium bitterness, full body, low carbnation, a bit of alcohol (not that bad)

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.

From a bottle. The sweet chocolate and coffee milkshake aroma is met with a sweet but overly so coffee finish.
