I have been wanting to try this for some time, finally sprung for this bottle at From the Vine recently. My wife wasn't so thrilled when I tried to explain the origin of the coffee though...

A - Pours a fairly thick, dark brown, but the beer settles black as night in my Duvel tulip. There's a very small cocoa powder colored head. Persistent carbonation creates a steady stream of bubbles meeting at the surface. I get a nice cascading effect through the half-crescent of bubbles that were left once the head receded. Very minimal spots of lace cling desperately to the sides of my glass.

S - Wow. The immediate first impression is of rich chocolate truffles. Imagine 70% cocoa dark chocolate Godiva truffles sprinkled with real truffle powder. Wow, again, just wow. The beer is very sweet with mild coffee aromas. Deep inhales from within my tulip reveal black raisins, currants, and subtle smooth coffee. Maybe there's something to this civet poop coffee... there is a discernible difference between this coffee and the harsher espresso aromas most coffee beers portray.

T - Very rich and smooth. Here comes the coffee! It's dark and roasted but so very soft on the palate. Dare I say softer coffee flavor than in FBS? Please do not mistake my meaning - the coffee is not soft as in muted, but soft as in delicately nuanced. The flavor profile is not nearly as sweet as the aroma. I get more truffle powder and dark chocolate creating more of a bitter-sweetness within the beer. Mild oats lend additional smoothness to this complex brew, and a slight char helps to balance the sweet.

M - Lingering dryness on the palate. There's a slight powdery texture there (have I mentioned truffles in this review yet?) Nevertheless the beer itself is very smooth going down. Moderate carbonation is just about right.

D - The alcohol is well hidden. Frankly, the only thing keeping me from stocking up on more of this is the price.
