On tap at the Anniversary part. This was my favorite of the variants... Black body with a dark tan head, good retention, ok lacing... Like the coffee variant the nose shows off tons of coffee, however here the coffee is a toucher sweeter and not has harsh and other things shine though... While the nose is good, the biggest difference here is the taste. This tastes great, super flavorful and balanced. The smooth coffee shows but there is lot of chocolate in here to break it up. Highly recommended.

This poured a jet black color with a tan head. Aroma was loads of fresh coffee and dark roasted mlat, some tobacco too. Flavor was straight espresso coffee but not too dark where it tastes burnt, sweet and roasted malts, and some licorice too. Excellent stuff.

Dark pour with a thin beige head. Aroma is heavy roasted coffee. Big roasty and coffee upfront with a creamy chocolate flavor on the backend. Dry ashy finish.

Maddog (385) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Draft at the big tasting event yesterday at the brewery. I had many, many beers yesterday, but Kopi Lowak stood out. The pour was black with a nice brown head. Aroma was roasted malts and coffee and flavors were complex and intense with big roasted malts, dark chocolate and a whole lot of the Kopi coming through. Big, chewy, intense and delicious.

Jackie O’s Dark Apparition Kopi edition. Swing top bottle straight from the source. Again, thanks to brad for the hookup... Nose is pretty rich with coffee although not quite as assertive as final push. Somewhat ashy with a decent feel of roast... Flavors incorporate the base apparition in check while complimenting it with a coffee essence yet somewhat subdued and not totally overpowering. Ash and roast on the finish. A pervading sense of sweetness throughout although the finish ends up with a touch of dryness. Medium bodied, not too full and carbonation was very light although present. 8/4/8/3/17

Thanks to JaBier for sharing a growler. The beer pours black with a medium foamy tan head that diminishes steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Heady roasted coffee and chocolate in the nose. Rich body with flavors of fresh roasted coffee, dark chocolate and malt. The finish is roasty with a subtle coffee aftertaste. Tried back to back with Brunch Weasel and this beer easily goes toe to toe with it. Very good all around.

On tap at Jackie O’s 5th Anniversary Extravaganza. Black pour with a thin tan head. Malty aroma with coffee that’s rich and full, but doesn’t dominate. Chocolate and a bit of heat come through as well. Flavor is chocolate covered coffee beans with a smooth, roasty finish. I was really looking forward to this one and it didn’t disappoint.

deyholla (6514) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 4, 2010
On tap at the brewery during the 5th anniversary party. Poured near black with opaque edges and no head whatsoever. Aroma had notes of rich coffee, roasted malts and dark chocolate with a slight underlying earthy note. Flavor began with rich, slightly bitter coffee. The coffee was joined by growing dark roasted malt and a hint of alcohol in the finish.

On tap into a snifter. Aroma is tons of coffee and some side notes of chocolate and roasty malt. Appearance is black with a tan head that leaves nice lacing. Taste is much like the aroma with coffee being the dominant flavor and chocolate and malt playing a secondary role. Heavy bodied. Overall this is one fantastic brew. I am happy to say this place is so close to me.
