330 mL bottle, served in a snifter at a tasting at Chris place. Pours black with a small tan head that fades slowly to a thin cover. The nose has huge espresso, along with earth, spice and roasty notes. The flavour is a very nice balance between sweet molasses and coffee bitterness. The finish is long with loads of espresso and molasses. On the palate, it is full with a dry texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is an amazing coffee imperial stout. It is huge, but also subtle and sophisticated. Beautiful. 2012-11-23

bhensonb (14764) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours very dark brown/black with a creamy tan head. Aroma is very coffee. Med + body. Flavor is quite roast coffee with some chocolate, and then some sweetness followed by what seems to be hop bitter. Effect is bitter dark chocolate. Tasty stuff.

Poured from a bottled saying the ABV is 11,5%. For those unfamiliar with "Kopi Loewak" and how this beer got its name: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kopi_Luwak Its the worlds most expensive coffee, made from Loewak turds holding the digested coffee berries. Thats whats used as main ingredient for this beer. appearance: Dark brown, near black. Non-transparent. Huge, no insane, mocca foam top. Pour with care. Lovely lacing. smell: Coffee for sure. Roasted malts, bit sourness to it. Hint of dark fruit / berries. taste: Like the smell suggests. It starts of quite fresh with a slight fruity and sweet coffee taste, then the roasted malt flavors kick in, giving it the coffee like bitterness. mouthfeel: Quite some carbonation, possibly a tad too much. Maybe the flavor needs a punch not to get dull, bit it also prevents it from getting more creamy like. overall: Its not bad. Its not great either. "The Molen" has better beers then this. I like the name, i like the story, but the flavors dont wow me. I like the roasted flavors behind the coffee taste, which does taste a little like old coffee. Its all quite mellow considering the ABV, so its quite a kicker. The slightly sweet dark fruity flavor mellow it out quite nicely. Its ok, but considering the price there are way better options at "The Molen brewery".

Opaque black beer, good tan head. Smooth palate, a little dry. Slightly woody dark malt. A little licorice. Rich coffee with some cream. Mild tangy fruit. Finishes dry with a bitter coffee aftertaste. Nice. Seems more flavoursome than the lower abv version.

Bottle. It pours a black body, topped by a big, dark beige head leaving lacings. The aroma has a nice spiced touch, roasted malts and loads of wonderul coffee. Loads. I dont like coffee, but this is lovely. The same goes for the flavor, theres a lovely spiced touch to it, but the chocolatey coffee dominates. Full body, semi-dry, and with a nice level of carbonation. Lasting coffee finish with a shitload of dark chocolate. Anyway, a really wonderful beer it is. 130202
