Bottle. 9.5%. Black with tiny beige head, fastly diminishing. Aroma: coffee, caramel, burned malts, vanilla. Taste of licorice, coffee, burned chocolate and caramel. The texture is oily. The beer is a bit dry, and aftertaste is not that long. andniz (336) - POLAND - OCT 4, 2016
Not that much coffee in the aroma, mostly cherry liquor, dark bread and some unpleasant, "dry" note Tide (4505) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2016
Taste is better, its sweet, medium bitterness, full body, low carbnation, a bit of alcohol (not that bad)
Bottle from Beergium. Black color, beige head. Bitter taste with roasted malts, hops, espresso, nuts, chocolate and a bot of licorice. Bitter finish with roadted malts, espresso, hops, nuts, licorice and dark fruits. Very nice imperial stout. Antonio369 (231) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2016
33 cl bottle, served in snifter glass. Poured black with a two finger tan head. Aroma: roasted espresso beans, licorice, dark chocolate, vanilla, dark fruit, toffee. Taste: loads and loads of roasted espresso beans. salty licorice, dark chocolate, black currants, dark fruit, vanilla, raisin bread, toffee, haagse hopjes (dutch caramel/coffee treat). Medium to full body with a long roasted, bittersweet finish. Roasted espresso dominance in this imperial stout. Good brew, one of the best beers I’ve tasted with coffee being used in the brewing process. Stew41 (2104) - Phuket, THAILAND - SEP 18, 2016
It’s great to taste a coffee stout where one can clearly taste the coffee character. Just like the real thing but sweeter. Pronounced length of roast flavour and indeed a spice like character on the nose. I think this is a touch under 10% but there is almost a feather touch to this beer. Might be the best coffee infused beer I have tasted.

Bottle from 16th Street Liquor store. Pours an opaque dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is leather, some chocolate notes. Oxidized? The same character taste with grassy and roasted malt bitterness. Slightly boozy. Bready, roasted malt bitterness aftertaste. Coffee is almost disappeared, unfortunately, it didn’t age well as De Molen Kopi Loewak. Needs to be reviewed when it is fresh. darbeer75 (1046) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - SEP 14, 2016
Aroma: lots of coffee but very roasty and sweet; Appearance: pitch black with thin tan head that dissipates fairly quickly; Taste: follows nose; smooth, boozy, delicious; Palate: very heavy body with long, sweet-coffee finish; Overall: don’t know if it’s the Italian coffee beans, but this is really good. A great surprise. StevieT (2039) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 11, 2016
From a bottle. The sweet chocolate and coffee milkshake aroma is met with a sweet but overly so coffee finish. Pim_zom (12) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2016
Aroma chocolade iets rood fruit. Smaak melk chocolade weinig koffie. Mooi vol en plakkend. Had meer koffie verwacht, verder mooi gebalanceerd bier. AnG_BrgNor (814) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2016
Bottle. Just an amazing complex and very well balanced imperial stout. Coffee, roasted, licorice and some dark cholcolate mixed well together in a very good brew from Emelisse. Full body also.
