Aroma of freshly roasted coffee, vanilla, and chocolate, intense roasted aroma. Taste is very evened out coffee with a peak in the after taste, very full and slightly acidic and earthy, with some berries in it, very good coffee notes which arent espresso like but more so a long lingering vanilla chocolate berry note. Mouthfeel isnt completely top notch, and this beer is quite one dimensional, but still - very good.

Poured from bottle into snifter. Blackish brown with no head and very thin medium brown lacing around the edge. Smells like slighty boozy chocolatey roasty coffee. Taste is mostly smooth coffee, with a little bit of bitterness and some notes of dark chocolate. Medium-full body with smooth feel. Really tasty brew, great flavor from the fancy coffee. I guess you cant go wrong with a stout from Mikkeller.

Draught @ All In Beer Fest. Pours oily black with a creamy mocha head that leaves some sticky lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet, malty and tiny fruity with roasted malts, burnt caramel, toasted oatmeal flakes, high quality coffee, luscious dark chocolate, raisins, moist soil, burnt wood and hints of alcohol. Taste is slightly sweet, bitter, malty and tiny fruity with roasted malts, burnt caramel, toffee, freshly baked oatmeal cookies, heavy dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, raisins, prunes, burnt wood, moist soil and hints of alcohol. Mouthfeel is fat, soft, round, tiny roasted astringent, tiny boozy and near full bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with roasted malts, burnt caramel, oatmeal cookies, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, raisins, burnt wood and moist soil. Top notch stuff. Yummy as expected!

neongolden (846) - Linkping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
(On tap at VilleValla Pub, Linkping, Dec 4 2014) Pours pitch black with small tan head and no lace. Aroma has dark chocolate, a melange of dark fruit/berry aromas that recall a fortified wine, some coffee that has a pungent smell but isnt particularly strong, touch of vanilla, moderate roast, and a reasonably sweet dark malt/burnt sugar sweetness that supports everything. On the palate, a bit rough and hot when cold, warming essential. When warm, rich sweetish dark chocolate, a port wine dark fruit vinousness, touches of bitter coffee, a little leafy character, moderate to strong roast. The sweet core persists into the finish, as does that fruitiness and chocolate, but the roast adds a bit of ashy bitterness and there is a touch of the earthy kopi luwak. Much less alcohol heat when warm than cold, oddly. Full bodied and reasonably thick with very soft carbonation. I like all imperial stouts on the warm side but temperature seemed essential for keeping this as a smooth beer. It lacks the super-full creamy oatmeal character and outright pungency of the Brunch Weasel and is merely very good rather than transcendental, but thats still pretty high praise given the point of comparison.

bytemesis (4937) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours opaque inky black with a large creamy dark brown head that dissipates slowly and laces well. Aroma is roasty, coffee, cocoa, anise, molasses. Flavor follows, medium sweet, medium bitter, a bit of ABV burn. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Certainly not as overtly coffee as other Koppi stouts I have had, but a pretty tasty effort

Muggus69 (1609) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 17, 2014
330mL bottle Small pop on opening. Holds a small dense brown head atop a oily black body. Aroma is brooding - even smells dark! Chocolate liqueur, Kahlua, cocoa, burnt toast, some roast meatiness in there, dark fruits - blackberries, currants, raisins - earthy coffee undertones, some faint floral fruity complexities (coffee!?). Low carbonation, wow! The texture of it - oily, thick, chewy, sticky, very nice. Liqueur-like on the palate; dark roast coffee, darkest of dark chocolate, raisins, sweet dates and prunes, dark brown sugar, theres this earthiness again - kind of fruity - like an exotic fruit character, like durian, well maybe not that exotic, but very unique. Moderate bitterness, loooong finish, some citrusy hop, sweetness lingers, sticky, lovely boozy embrace. Tremendously well intergrated coffee character in this - properly good. Yum, etc, you get the idea!
