Xstream (242) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2013
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

A typical over carbonated, foaming over making a mess, de Molen beer. The beer has a way too big and growing, lightly browned, dark tan colored head. The beer is a dark, concentrated, dark brown color. The beer smells amply of sharp, burnt, roasted fresh roasted coffee. Concentrated, mocha, leaning even towards chocolate, a touch of burnt veggie character, sharply acidic, lots of peppery coffee notes.

By the time I get to take a sip the beer it has lost its over ample carbonation, and has moved to more of an effervescent, that is perhaps a touch too big for an Imperial Stout. Peppery, slightly burnt vegetal, roasted / perhaps a touch to over burnt, slightly acidic, dark roasted coffee notes. A dark chocolate, moving into even some dark milk chocolate notes tries to balance, but really cant, the sharp coffee notes. As expected from a de Molen beer, this is quite light bodied and quaffable, but could use to be a bit more rich and malty to balance out the sharp coffee notes. A burnt nutty note lingers a bit in the finish. This is strong enough that it is evocative of a dark, concentrated, coffee liquor.

Not bad, but as with many a coffee beer, it is over-roasted, sharp, and too acrid; Not so much that it isnt still somewhat enjoyable at least

Shaney (2423) - Kln / Cologne, GERMANY - JAN 29, 2013
Kaffeeschwarzes Bier mit mchtiger Schaumkrone, welche leicht brunlich ist. Wunderbares Kaffeearoma, dazu leicht rstig. Startet smalzig, der Kaffee nimmt im Geschmack die Oberhand und klingt trocken-rstmalzig aus. Fr Kaffeetanten wie mich DAS Bier schlechthin, auch wenn ich die Sorte Kopi Luwak fr berschtzt halte.

ThreeCats (848) - ISRAEL - JAN 22, 2013
Black body with a dark tan tan head. Aroma of Oak, roast, coffee, and more oak. Taste of Coffee, bitter chocolate, oak, sherry, liquorish, alcohol, and a bit of tartness. Very rich and complex, very full body. Roasty palate.
