Bottle sample @ RBBWG Mar 10h. 2018, thanks Marko.
Brune foncée, presque noire, col beige voire café au lait.
Arôme est malté, chocolaté et un bouquet rempli rappelant la mélasse, fruité rouges et baies, le café semble cependant un peu discret.
Palais est malté, caramel, chocolaté, café léger, alcool bien là pour un caractère épais, pas mal de sucré résiduel.
Fini sec, fini soyeux mais lourd même en partageant à plusieurs surtout que l'effervescence est faible accentuant le côté lourd de ce stout. Rubin77 (2973) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 12, 2018

Bottle from a bottle to a snifter. Aroma is an acidic coffee. Light cocoa. Huge tan head. Black pour. Taste is better than aroma but still modestly acidic. Decent enough to drink a bomber. Wouldn’t buy a keg. Good boost Stuu666 (15796) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 2, 2018

2015. Dark brown. Thin head. On the palate, there’s a lot of coffee, and a light chocolate note. The coffee actually comes across pretty harsh…burnt Italian espresso. Which is not at all what you want to do with kopi luwak. The body underneath the coffee bomb is sweet and chocolatey, little bit sticky. Pretty good, with a lot of sticky, chewy stuff, but the coffee is stronger than I’d like in terms of balance. beerplace (2436) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 20, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2018 750ml bottle at Alex's. 2015. Pours an almost black with a beige head. Aroma is roasted malt and some fruity notes. Taste is similar with lots of roasty notes. This one is definitely Russian Imperial Stout, I would prefer it to be more sweet and less bitter. Still good. sjogro (5403) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2018

Bottle shared at THT January (Platypus Edition). Massive thanks to RandomStrangerNL. Black with nice light brown head. Massive coffee, molasses, fudge, sweet malts, roast, blackberries, soft roasted nuts. Very nice coffee! Over medium sweet and bitter with light tart finish from the coffee. Full bodied. Not the best Speedway, but quite nice! GlasgowTAD (2015) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 17, 2017
