sample from the pitcher @ GABF on 9/17/10. pitch black oily pour with a small tan head (imagine it would be a bit stronger in a snifter glass). intense deep roasted coffee nose with some big malts. the Kopi Lowak coffee is so dark and intense - love it! huge coffee infused body with layers of chocolate. dark coffee ground finish with more chocolate notes and big roasted malts. this is the perfect coffee beer.

Crushed at GABF 10. An eye-opening and palate-wrecking combination of an Imperial Stout and coffee. Jet-black pour that leaves about four coats on the glass. Huge coffee aroma and flavor for sure with plenty of roast and some chocolate. Definitely one of the highlights of the fest this year.

Medicine bottle from SoLan. Thanks man! Very strong burnt coffee nose, sharp roasted acidity. Oily black, slick in the glass with no head. Strongly rich, little white vinegar on the edge. Dark and heavy chewy coffee, double strength french pressed madness. And yet theres that vinegar component. Contrasting but not really complimentary, though it takes on more of an under-ripe character later on which was more pleasant.

This was the highlight of RBWG2010. Pours black with a medium dark tan head. Aroma is huge coffee and espresso, earthy, lots of roasted malt and coffee. Flavor is so damn creamy and delicious. This stuff was like velvet. Big roasted malt, licorice, bakers chocolate and then that freaking coffee in the finish. It lingered for a good 2 minutes. This is the stuff dreams are made of.

Another really good variation of Zhukov, with a nice amount of coffee, but a bit on the sweeter side and not my favorite interpretation. Thanks Diego, as usual.

Mulitple samples during my two sessions at GABF 2010. Dark viscous black pour, creamy brown head and a outstanding bitter coffee aroma. Flavor is everything I love in a coffee beer, plenty of creamy full bodied espresso, vanilla and finished with a long lingering dry roasty aftertaste. Hope to be able to try this again someday.

On tap at blind tiger. Rich coffee syrupy flavor... Reminds me of the weasel breakfast. Pour is near black with tabacco and rich roast espresso aroma. Little bit of sharpy marker, tobacco, and espresso in the mouth.

Tap at Blind tiger for Mikes B-day bash - Big thanks to EDA for saving this keg when he knew Id be there (haha). Arouma is sweetened espresso, creamy body, dark chocolate and milky pine and plenty of oak. Sweet dark malts, with a lingering dryness some boozey heat and carbonic acids. Not much complexity, actually. I hear (from Andy) that its better on nitro.

On tap at Hunahpu Day. Originally reviewed 3/9/2014.Inky black. Stains the glass. Nice mocha head, but after a while its gone. Incredible coffee aroma. No acidity. Earthy coffee. Rich chocolate. A hint of that Zhukov licorice in the back. The coffee flavor is immense. Never domineering, but its the main attraction of this beer. Rich and blends perfectly with the chocolate. Molasses flavor in the back end. Heavy and viscous. Low carbonation. Ive missed this beer multiple times over the years. Im glad I finally got to try it. Worth all the elbow-throwing at Hunahpu Day.

This was seriously just a WOW beer experience. Super rich viscous thick pour even though it was nitro. Big full body and a nice dense head. Aroma is simply awesome. Tons of sweet creamy coffee and sugar with nicely mellow roasted malts and chocolate. Like cake. Flavor is sweet, creamy, tons of rich coffee brownie like essence. Smooth rich but oh so drinkable. Just amazing.
