3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle. Opaque black with medium creamy beige head. Dark malt, dark chocolate and cocoa aroma, some alcohol; coffee not really detected. With good will cappuccino in the beginning. Taste starts grainy, carbonation induced, later with a variety of coffee notes, roasted and unroasted, sweet and dry, also "Ovomaltine". The coffee notes I cannot describe in an other way than somewhat "pushing downward", as if hop or sour "upward" notes would be kept under a certain limit. A late entering sourness definitely has its origin in the coffee addendum. This beer brings together coffee notes that may stem from surrogates or from real coffee and deserves a pedagogical merit in this regard. Definitely it is an harmonic integration of corresponding flavours. If it was more fruity and less grainy accentuated I would concede an even better score.
2013 vintage bottle at home to mark Borefts, 23rd September 17. Pours black but not thick black, no carbonation. Aroma is sweet caramel, coffee. Taste is slick oily coffe caramel, sweet and roasty. Good aged coffee stout. No sign of the ABV, lovely. koleminer20 (3845) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - AUG 6, 2017
330 mL bottle shared with ebone1988. 2012 vintage. The pour is a thin light black with a thin film of off tan head and a little soapy lace left behind. The aroma is interesting. There is a strong sweet milkiness to it and a light chocolate. The coffee is light and by that good. The roasted malts are probably the best aspect of this, and that’s not saying much. The flavor is worse. The milkiness is absolutely not good. It’s like roasty chocolate milk. I don’t care for this hot piece of junk at all. The sweet milk just turns me way off. The mouth feel is light and watery with a sharper carbonation and a lingering sweet chocolate milk with a touch of bitter roast. This is just not good at all. Ugh. 4 4 4 3 11 ebone1988 (2080) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - AUG 6, 2017
Bottle shared with koleminer20. Vintage 2012. Aroma is milky, coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, sweet milk chocolate, interesting. Appearance is dark dark brown, light brown head, poured thin. Taste is coffee, bready, roasted malt, chocolate milk, booze, older but it’s held up decently. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, boozy coffee woody aftertaste. Overall, it’s decent for being at the end of its lifespan. fugitive (2037) - Athens, GREECE - JUN 28, 2017
Bottle. Color dark brown with small head. Aroma sweet, malt, caramel, roasted, some coffee. Taste sweet, malt, caramel, coffee. HeadyDE (868) - Delaware, USA - APR 23, 2017
Bottle pour 2013..pours a medium black with a larger than expected head..nose is booming with coffee and chocolate, really nice aroma..mouthfeel follows nose with smooth as can be coffee, followed by some bitter chocolate, hard to fathom how smooth the coffee is but more delicate than any coffee beer I can recall, a bit more carbonation than anticipated is the only real downside to this, pretty amazing stout

Bottle at home ’Wijsdier Luwak Bier’, unbelievably rich in flavours. Coffee, roast, full chocolate body. Totally awesome, and probably the best beer I’ve had in a couple of months. BlazerT (1221) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JAN 12, 2017
Bottle. Sensoric. Pitch black with small, light brown head. Almost none head retention and lacing. Aromas are mainly moderate coffee, chocolate and up-front dried fruits (raisins), slightly woody. Taste is definitely sweet, fruity with lots of dark fruit accents. Overall nice, not malty and sugar packed with strong chocolate, fudge neither toffee accents. No lots of roasted malts with strong ashy notes. This one is good combination of coffee, wood and nice fruity notes. Highly drinkable, well ABV hidden. Korcz (3389) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 3, 2016
