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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
