12 oz. bottle, pours black with a large foamy beige head. Aroma is totally dominated by the kopi luwak coffee, very dark roasted at that, with little else. Flavour is extremely potent, with ridiculously dark roasted coffee beans, though not really burnt, some feint charred notes, more coffee and more coffee. Carbonation is quite lively, especially for an impie stout- similar to the 2010 version from memory. When you want a coffee impie stout, hard to go wrong with this dark roasted coffee bomb. Excellent. jesperhammer (4902) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2012
19-OCT-2012, bottle @home, from Fish & Beer.
Black with huge light brown head.
Roasted aroma with loads of coffee.
Taste is roasted with coffee and chocolate. A touch of dusty roast. Alcohol is present. Average to soft carbonation, full body but in no way syrup’y. Finish is bitter from roasted malts as well as hops. Very fine stout. JohnnyJ (5569) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Bottle. Deep black pour, small tan head. Lots of freshly ground coffee, chocolate, medium roast, caramel sweetness, and sweet cocoa. Pretty tasty. JaBier (8253) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle shared by a friend. Pours darkest brown with a huge beige head. Aroma of sweet chocolate, but full of roasty coffee as well. Malty flavor with dark chocolate character before a roasty coffee finish. brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Pours an impenetrable black with a khaki head. Huge coffee aroma, tons of chocolate, and lots of roasted malt, too. There’s a bit of molasses sweetness, toffee, and a hint of alcohol. The coffee flavor is very pronounced, too. Dark and semi-sweet chocolate, toffee, and a lot of roasted malt. Really an excellent beer.

Bottle. Poured a black color with an average to large frothy brown head that mostly lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted coffee malt and chocolate aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Good complex roasted dark choclate flavor with a medium to heavy toasted dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex brew.
