Bottle sample. Black color with a big beige head. Aromas of coffee, ash, artichoke, asparagus and macadamia nuts. Flavor of fresh coffee, acidity, with medium bitterness. Medium bodied and quite interesting.

DSG (12345) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 22, 2012
Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmks place. Thanks zvikar. Black with a big beige to light brown head. Aroma full of roasted coffee beans, some "green" notes and a bit of ashes. Bittersweet flavor with coffee, a bit of coffee acidity, lots of roastiness and a bit of chocolate. A burnt bitter finish. Medium to full-bodied. Quite nice.

Vaiz (4422) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2012
Bottle. Black pour, thin light tan head. Aroma is heavily coffee powered, some roasted malts, brown earth which really reminds me of the Kopi Loewak coffee, and some alcohol. Flavor is again loads of coffee, a bit sharp roasted malts and quite warming. Nice brew.

BenH (3438) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 16, 2012
Bottle. Near black with a tan head. Massive heavy roasted coffee aroma, slight smokiness, burnt toast. Taste has lots of heavy roasted coffee again with peat smoke and a touch of molasses. Nice sweetness. Very nice if a little one dimensional

snzcujo (282) - RUSSIA - SEP 15, 2012
Tasted @home on 15/09/2012. The bottle was filled almost by the top! Pours of dark-dark brown, slightly ruby color with a small but beatiful head. That head dissapears quickly, leaving nice lacing. Aroma is mostly a mix of alcohol plus you-know-that-great-coffee, with notes of brown sugar, roasted barley and vanilla. Taste is coffee upfront, following by an alcohol wave again. Aftertaste has surprisingly good amount of bitterness, both from hops and roasted barley. So well, good, medium body beer, but slightly lacking of complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

11.2oz bottle, bottled 4/18/12. Impressively large lighter brown foamy head, that goes nowhere. Pitch black color. Literally half my glass is head, had to wait quite a bit before digging into this. Thick webs of lace. Mmmm... Dat kopi luwak aroma. Such massive and big coffee. Very soft, lighter carbonation. Very dry texture. Long coffee aftertaste.... roasty, but coffee foremost. Light earthy hops, dark chocolate. Surprisingly light body, for the ABV. Big bitter taste, light alcohol bite. Some dark fruit, wood, light licorice, lightly burnt malts. Prickly mouthfeel, not what Id call "chewy". Physically challenging to drink at first (because of the ridiculous head) but gets more and more delicious as you go. Rate of intake was most definitely a sharp upward curve. A coffee bomb is fun every now and then, and nothing pulls it off quite like a kopi luwak brew.

Bottle to oversized snifter (2012 vintage; bottled April 18th). Looks good; black with ample dark-beige head that slowly dissipates into lacing. Smells roasty and malty. Tastes like it smells with notes of coffee present. Good on the palate. Good.

fletchfighters (1424) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2012
180 ML nip bottle poured into a snifter Thanks to Baggio for the bottle A--- OH, it wants to be a gusher. Careful opening saved that. Thanks other reviewers :). Pours a dark muddy, murky brown. Settles in the glass a murky black with slight tints of brown and ruby. One finger mocha colored head that is thick and stays at one finger for a bit. Does recede to a layer of thick film. Couple spots of lacing. S-- Lots of coffee. Underneath the big coffee nose is some milk chocolate, roast and citrus. T-- Coffee, milk chocolate, bittering citrus hops, and roast. M-- Full bodied and low carbonation. Coffee does smooth out in the mouth and get more of milk chocolate, roast, grapefruit and pine. Good acidic dry coffee finish. O-- Nice beer. Nothing that wows but a good beer.

Bottle from lbutikken. Black with a big and lasting light brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, heavy coffee and a little vegetables. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and rather bitter finish. Oily. 160812
