Bottle from CBS, Corvallis. Pours a medium-dark brown, decent amount of tan head. Aroma chestnuts, coffee, caramel. Body thin, dry, with a rich, nutty finish. Age may have negatively affected this. zacgillbanks (5128) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2017 Bottles from Rehills, Newcastle.
Aged for 4 years: Inky black-brown with a thin tan head. It has a spicy, coffee, chocolate and chilli flavour with a very warming liquorice, chocolate, smooth vanilla and chilli (without the heat) finish. Good.
2014: Aged for almost 2 years; this is a very dark brown-black coloured beer with peppery, tart red fruit, chilli and floral fruity coffee flavours, chocolate notes with slight liquorice and roasted coffee on the finish. dnicolaescu (2520) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - NOV 24, 2014
BOTTLE 33 CL from dcmchew. BOTTLED 24-JAN-2013.
Coffee leftovers with some weird stale semi-fermented notes, some black malt sweetness in the background. Not much sweetness, fruitiness or real roast. The aftertaste is plain manure. The nastiest stout I ever had. rikstar (2603) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2014
UPDATED: APR 18, 2015 0,33l fles volgens mij bij vonk Zaandam vandaan. Diep zwart zonder noemenswaardige schuimkraag. Wat een intense geur en smaakbeleving geroosterde en gerookte mout maar daarbovenuit de extreem volle kopi loewak koffie met een diepe bitter, zure afdronk die mintuten je mond blijft vullen. erg bijzonder. oliodnb (662) - ITALY - NOV 6, 2014
33cl bottle from Roybeer, Milan. Pours black with a thin beige creamy head, way less than I was expecting. Quite strange for a stout. Aroma is roasted malts, peat, chocolate liquor, some dried fruit, light coffee. Taste is similar with the best coffee aftertaste I ever experienced in a beer. Thick oily mouthfeel, low carbonation, medium to full body. Excellent.

coffee, black, clear, brown foam, light sweetness, very bitter, lightly sour, full body, creamy, soft carbonation, long finish, bitter, wolfcarnival (286) - Oxford, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2014
Bottle in beergeek with cam and pavel. had it on the way to 100. pours jet black with a small tan head. smells of coffee, chocolate, raisins, burnt toffee. taste delivers what the aroma promised. coffee right away, moving to the sweeter choco, then a bitter hoppy finish. more complex and bitter than the espresso stout. maybe it was a bit too much for me. really great for what it is though eduardovl (1429) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle served in a snifter glass.
A: Pours a deep and dark brown color forming a small but persistent bubbled beige to brown head. Few spotty lacings are left in the glass
S: Very roasted with strong notes of coffee. Notes of dark chocolate and chocolate malts. Really amazing in the nose. Some alcohol is felt in the end
T: Strong roasted malts and slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of coffee. Strong roasted malts bitterness in the end
M: Heavy molasses body. Low carbonation. Roasted malts bitterness in the aftertaste
O: Great coffee Stout. Quite good drinkability considering that itís a 11.5% ABV beer. It does not seem to be that strong
[ BA Review @ 4/29/2013 ] Vestergaard (2089) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2014
Bottle, 33cl. Most likely from the last batch. Pours pitch black with a huge, light brown cola-head. Aroma has obviously looots of fruity espresso-coffee. Some bitter, strong roast, alcohol, burned sugary sweetness, Dark dried fruits, and dark berries as well. Taste as well is just packed with coffee. Has some syrup/brown sugar, a certain alcohol presence, hard roast and more coffee. The beer has some sharp edges, but is overall fairly balanced. Pretty high carbonation, medium full body. Really good stuff! RasmusOtt (2740) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2014
Pours black with a fizzy brown head. Aroma has that characteristic kopi smell where the coffee is very light roasted and very fruity. caramel, chocolate, some light roasted malts and overall has that "cold coffee" feel. Taste is more on the roasted side with some roasted malts, light roasted and fruity coffee, cold coffee here as well and some raw vanilla as well. Hides the alcohol very well but the body is a bit weak for a powerful beer like this but overall this comes off very nice and is quite pleasing to drink. I remember the old beer as being a bit more complex though.
