The beer pours dark chocolate with a small head. The aroma is sweet, light and roasted coffee notes pleasant in the nose. The flavor is sweet coffe and light roasted malts and dark chocolate notes on a body that is a little lighter than I would like.

Big thanks to markwise for sharing this beauty that pours deep darkness with mocha head. The aroma offers up black strap molasses, some dark roasted coffee, a mild level of chili peppers and dusty malt balls. The taste is rich and yummy with molasses, dark to near burnt roasted malts, black strap molasses and rich oily yummy, did I mention ‘rich’, coffee beans. I get a faint chili pepper sense hovering around the edges of the flavor. Very nice brew.

Bottle shared at RBWG by Alexsdad06...thanks again!!! Black heart with mahogany edges with a latte head. This one is extremely coffee forward with notes of cocoa and roasted malt. Flavor is fairly one dimensional with espresso blasting the palate and a little char on the finish. The ABV was very well hidden here and it had a medium body.

On tap at the Jackie O’s Anniversary Extravaganza. Served side-by-side with a few of the other versions. Just like the regular coffee version, this pours a very dark brown color with a thin whisp of a tan head. There is a low cap as it falls with a few bubbles around the edges. The nose is quite interesting and brings a stronger, more complex coffee presence than did the regular coffee version. The coffee is stronger here, though is still lets the base beer come through a bit. Really digging the coffee used in this one. The taste isn’t quite as good. As with the regular coffee, I was looking for a big more integration between the base beer and the Kopi. The coffee is really dominant with some chocolate undertones as well as a slightly-roasted character. Good body with a slight touch of booze and a nice coffee dry bitterness. Drinks quite well. A solid brew. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 12-16-2010

enjoyed during 2011 RBWG thanks to Alexsdad06, pours black with a dark brown head. Aroma is heavy roast, molassis, syrup and coffee. Flavor is bitter black patent, heavy roast, some smoke and a lingering coffee in the finish. The coffee is pretty reserved, but mellow nad very nice at the same time.

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.

Bottle shared during AZRBWG. Pour is deep brown/black with a beige head. Aroma shows notes of roasted malt, dark chocolate, tobacco, and lots of rich coffee. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of caramel and vanilla. Overall body is moderate to full, viscous, and finishes with nice roasted bitterness.

Black pour. This beer is simply a coffee and chocolate lovers dream. Just the right amount of toasty malts and hops give this beer great body and balance.

Diego coming through with another sick bottle. Black pour with thin tan/brown head. Roasted malt and strong coffee aromas. The body is thin and the taste is sweet with expresso, coffee, roasted malt, and sweet chocolate flavors..
