look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 4.25

Bottled 4/18/12, poured into a snifter

A- pours pitch black with a light khaki colored one-finger head that retains nicely long after the pour, a bit of lacing left behind

S- for being two years old, I'm surprised how prevalent and 'fresh' the coffee aroma is. Fresh dark roasted coffee bean mixes with dark bitter-sweet chocolate, the combination reminds me of a cafe mocha. Also picking up a bit of smoky malt, with some earthy and herbal hop notes

T- dark chocolate up front mixes with some smoky malt with hints of molasses. Sweet cream mixes with an earthy bitterness and a bit of a spicy pepper kick. Bitter coffee hits the mid-palate with Huge coffee notes continue on the linger that tastes like a fresh roasted cup of joe.

M- medium body with biting & bubbly carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that continues to the finish, warming alcohol lingers

O- a little bit of heat added another dimension that I'm not sure came from the high abv, or an actual adjunct ingredient. As expected with the Kopi Loewak coffee, it takes center stage of the beer with a unique freshness, even after setting in the bottle for over two year. Carbonation was a bit too bubbly and biting, but overall a fine sipper

330ml bottle
Served in a snifter
Bottled 18/04/12

A - It is black as the ace of spades. It is topped with three inches of tan head.

S - I smell some coffee and yeast.

T - The taste is coffee and cream. The coffee has undoubtedly mellowed over the two years it spent in the bottle, but it is still enough to make it taste great.

M - Full

O - This is a nice coffee stout. The coffee flavor and aroma has held up well for two years. Now I want to find a fresher bottle. I enjoyed it thoroughly. My bottle was brown and not green like the picture.
