Thanks to Kenpo23 for this very, very generous extra!

Poured with the father in law between two 16oz snifters.

Black, black and more black. This is one darkest, most viscous beers to date. Dark as night with a mocha head. Head rises with large, slowly decreasing bubbles. The last remnants leave a black trail through the head, giving you the chance to get a bit artistic. I made a smiley face. Seemed fitting. Retention is modest, with faint lacing.

For as being as aged as this one is (at least 6 months) the coffee aroma is so dang dominating. Very sweet, near mocha/fudge like in coffee/chocolate melding. A booze note rises slowly, but is well played, not being overly dominant nor a real nuisance. This bad boy came to play. As it warms, cherry and dark fruit notes come out, though muted. Not as complex as wanted, but I feel this one is more about the Kopi Luwak than anything. A beer that compliments the coffee...interesting.

For a "breakfast" beer, this would be a very hearty breakfast indeed. Coffee notes dominate again, coming off as a nutty, roasted, and surprisingly mild bitter tinge in the fore-palate. Like many Bfast stouts, I was expecting a smooth, non complex drinkable beer that you could slam like a stack of flapjacks. Not this one. You go from the coffee notes, to a very nicely played chocolate mid-body, somewhat like hershey bar, into a very mellowed and drawn out finish. Nutty notes come back into play in the finish, with small bit of earthy and floral hops, though very mellow.

Mouthfeel is super creamy, super sticky and takes a bit to warm up for another go. Carbonation is rather mild, with a very drawn out finish. Boozey finish, but heck, at 10.9%, what do you expect? Keep this to one, and at 500ml (which is a perfect size for a beer of such magnitude) you won't be trashed by the finish.

Excellent, absolutely worth the price tag.
