4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap sample. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted coffee, chocolate and alcohol aroma. Heavy bittersweet dark chocolate malt flavor with a heavy bittersweet and small alcohol bite finish of long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.

Light carbonation. Big bitterness. Amazing coffee russian imperial stout. Wow, Jackie-Os definitely knows their way around Kopi Luwak.. Such excellent big bitter roasty coffee stouts

Helmut brought this one to the 12/2012 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a growler this beer poured thick and black with a medium sized foamy brown head that left minimal lacing. The aroma was very strong espresso, vanilla and cream. The flavor was incredibly strong coffee with notes of vanilla, marshmallow, vanilla, more coffee and then cream. Long coffee and vanilla finish. Moderately full bodied and smooth.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
On tap on the brewside.. Very dark color and a persistent thin brown head. Aroma is Rich and there are deep complex malt and coffee, but the coffee is not bitter but almost sweet and complements the deep malt bill very well, there are lots of little nuances if you smell it long enough. Flavor is strong roasted malt and chocolate, then there is this big coffee that again is not bitter but sweet like aroma would suggest, coffee flavor is different than any coffee beer i’ve tried and it is done very well with some very exotic ingredients. There is an alcohol warmth and the hops are lost in all the malt and coffee flavor. Overall I love this beer its a great example of a true craft brew, great base beer (dark app) aged with a quality coffee bean, everything about this beer is craft and its a great beer overall.

Bottle shared by Lunch. Thanks Paul!
Bottle 50 / 213
The beer is a dark brown color, with 1/4" of beige head. The head recedes to a thin, oily layer and leaves some good lacing on the glass. The aroma brings a grandiose coffee presence, followed by bourbon, light tobacco, and subtle oak. The smell is superior to the taste. The flavor brings a heavy dose of coffee, as expected. Flavors blend well together, though the body is a bit on the thin side. The finish leaves ample coffee and roast notes lingering on the palate, as well as a lasting bitterness. Overall, this brew was pretty easy to drink and rather enjoyable.

Draft at Jackie O-s (notes). Pours dark like all the others with a thin tan head. Nose is quality coffee, dark chocolate, and roasted malts. Not much different from the regular coffee. Flavor is much better; the coffee flavors are nit as harsh, a touch sweeter and more integrated with everything else. Dark chocolate roasted malts and more smooth. Tasty.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a dark black color with a one finger mocha head, really viscous. Aroma of coffee and chocolate, the best coffee aroma I’ve ever smelled. Taste follows nose and more this is intensified. Crazy good so thick yet so smooth. This is the best coffee beer I’ve ever had, so freakin good

Poured from a growler this black brew kicked up a pretty thick dark tan head that left nice lacing all the way down.
The aroma is heavy on roasty notes, tuns of coffee and roasted malt.
I get sweet malt flavors right up front with some mild sweet dark fruit with bitter coffee in the finish. The taste of this one really surprised me, I was expecting way more coffe, the nose was pretty misleading.
Medium body, light carbonation, nice coating.
Overall a very enjoyable brew, I would have enjoyed more coffee in the flavor but I guess those little monkey cats can only poop so much.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Opaque black color with a medium sized, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts, burnt wood, cocoa, and light alcohol. Taste was all coffee, robust, roasted malts, burnt wood, some dark fruitiness, vanilla bean, and a dry finish.
