Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate & caramel. Brown/black with tanned head. Sweet chocolate, cocoa & coffee in the taste. Medium body, oily texture & soft carbonation. Long warm finish.

A splendid, incredibly strong imperial coffee stout. There is no head at all, its inky and oil-like. Delicious, though.

kurczako (140) - POLAND - OCT 17, 2015
Piwo dwa lata po terminie, zestarzało się nieziemsko. Bardzo intensywny aromat, kawa, czekoladowość, paloność, suszone owoce. W smaku niezwykle gęste, oblepia kubki smakowe. Szlachetny alkohol rozgrzewa. Piwo rozpływa się w ustach. Jeśli gdziekolwiek natraficie, polecam, jedno z najlepszych piw w życiu!

Bottled: 04/18/2012, sampled: 11/06/2016. Even at this age, the pour is lively, producing a big tan head that holds itself so long in the glass. Color is black, of course. Aromas are obviously coffee front & center, but there’s also a huge chocolate fudge or Dutch chocolate brownie note following. Surprising how fresh this beer smells after more than four years. Some subtle dried fruits in the aroma as well (maybe dates). Taste is absolutely rich and decadent—gigantic blast of bittersweet chocolate initially and then transitions into a coffee note that’s soooo smooth and well-balanced; not too bitter, acidic, or tart. The end is where the coffee stands out on its own and shows off some of its alcoholic strength as well. A faint dried fruit plus honey sweetness is there but it’s pretty much covered up by the chocolate & coffee. The booze gets super strong after it warms up! Texture is chewy, full-bodied, hot, and astringent from the strong coffee & alcohol. To be honest, the flavors here are two-dimensional and lack a wide range of complexity. That doesn’t make it bad…not at all…because this brew makes up for it by presenting such a special experience. It’s a distinct example of Dutch chocolate combined with ridiculously high-end coffee in a beer.

PapaVillum (956) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2014
33 cl / 330 ml, flaske, 11,2 % ABV, købt i Barley Wine i CPH City, 27. juni 2014. Ibenholt-farvet/ dyb sort Imperial Coffee Stout med minimalt skum, dvs. kun kant og overflade (skænket i nattens mørke) I næsen er der kaffe, chokolade, duft af lade. Uovertruffen smag! En rigtig smag af Stout med en tilpas, næsten usynlig sødme, og kaffesmagen er bare elegant. Meget behagelig, fuldendt og i meget fin balance. Ingen sønderlige tegn i smagen på, at vi har at gøre med en øl i tocifrede procenter. Mundfølelsen er som sædvane hos De Molen noget helt specielt: fin, silkeblød, kuldioxid nærmest ikke-eksisterende og så alligevel til stede... topklasse. Og for en ordens skyld: kraftigt nedskruet indhold af kuldioxid. Eftersmagen sidder længe i mundvigen og svælget - igen er alt, som det skal være. Findes der en bedre kaffe Stout? Kan denne forbedres? Store og meget svære spørgsmål for denne øl er i sin klasse nærmest perfekt!

Poured from a bottle. Retained light brown head. Incredible coffee and malty aroma, though I could almost taste the alcohol before I sipped. Taste replicated the aroma almost perfectly. Strong alcohol aftertaste. Delicious, though not for the faint of liver. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rating #1851 - 2015.08.07- Bottle from CBI - Pours a midnight black with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is cat-shit coffee, or what I assume cat-shit coffee smells like. Its bold, roasty, earthy, floral. Palate is much the same. A hidden gem.

ganache (5951) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 27, 2011
A bottle stamped 05/09/2011 - hoping that’s a born-on date [probably the highest fill line I’ve seen, too]. This is the 11.2% version. Nose explodes with coffee aroma, bitter and earth with heavy dark chocolate, but there’s also a nice swirl roast, syrupy sweet plums, and licorice. Lesser grapes and raisins, just a touch of alcohol showing and there’s a mild aura of candyish sweetness. Absolutely phenomenal nose. Brown-black body with a creamy, rocky (but short) light brown head. Taste is initially only lightly sweet, gives way to bitterness and mild (but classy) alcohol burn toward the end, when the chocolate and coffee fade to a long mocha aftertaste. Only a medium body. Roast and darker, earthier flavors backed off somewhat in the mouth, where the fruitier notes win out, with touches of orange and even peach, though there is espresso crema smeared all around the edges. Oily medium body is creamy and swishy with layers. Pumpernickel crust and sultry burned tones. Bottom of the glass reveals, naturally, splashes of neutral yeast and lightly acrid coffee grounds. Dangerously drinkable. This is either the second or third civet poop brew I’ve had, and by far the best (though I’m willing to reconsider, dearest Mikel, if you send me another bottle!); results may vary, especially for the thimble drinkers, but on this day, in this moment, this is one of the best-fitting drinking experiences I’ve had.
