From a 22 ounce bottle with no freshness date. Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A: Pitch black thick body with a thin brown thick creamy head which dissipates quickly, but a thick ring remains with some coating on the top.

S: Great smell of roasted coffee and slight dark chocolate hints and a real earthy overall smell to it. This would be perfect if it were just a tad stronger.

T: This tastes really good. slight dark chocolate hints throughout with a bitter dark chocolate syrup finish. The coffee flavor comes up with a very distinct roasty bitterness that I've never tasted before, this definitely isn't your average store bought coffee. There's this earthy taste throughout that matches the smell, definitely from the coffee used and it's very distinct, but pleasing. This is definitely very mellow though throughout.

M: Not as thick as I was expecting but definitely full-bodied, light carbonation.

O: This is a very drinkable beer with a distinct flavor and scent. I like this a lot and recommend it to any stout drinker. I'm giving this high marks for a reason.

A: Black. Forms a large mocha colored head that slowly reduces to a large ring around the edges.

S: Lots of roasted malts and coffee with a bit of earthy hops in the background.

T: There is a lot more coffee in the flavor than the aroma. More deeply roasted malts, to the point there is a little char, cocoa, chocolate, and some more faint hops. Full flavored and quite complex.

M: Heavy bodied with lower carbonation. Moderate charred malt bitterness.

O: A very goof Imperial Stout. Full of flavor and rather complex. This one is a sipper for sure, but it's a damn good one at that.

Been waiting a long time to try this one. This was fresh into the store, straight out of the box, into my fridge, and then into my glass. I love coffee stouts (and good coffee, in general), and while I’ve never had Kopi Luwak coffee, I’m really intrigued by it.

Poured into a New Belgium glass.

A: Good and black, like I like my coffee. No light penetration. A knuckle’s worth of latte colored head, but it disappears quick, leaving a light skim on top. Fantastic lacing.

S: Rich, creamy smell, though not like brewing a pot of coffee. It smells sweet, with caramel and chocolate. A little coffee floats in and out.

T: Fan-flipping-tastic. There’s a rich chocolate up front, and just a perfect amount of sweetness. Coffee bitterness rolls into the midrange, and it’s bold, and blends well with the sweetness. It ends on a sweet caramel note. I don’t get a single bit of alcohol. Very happy I bought two of these.

M: Smooth, velvety. Creamy. Rolls well around the tongue.

O: Was definitely not let down by this. I think I have to get my hands on some of this coffee now. Ante up.

No idea what the age on this one is. Unintentionally cellared it for around 6 months. No visible date on the bottle.

First pour is nice. Thick, velvety black, fairly large creamy tan, decent lacing. Second pour is....disturbing. Thick chunks plop into the glass. Left about 1/10 of the beer in the bomber, still visible chunks, not really able to tell what they are. Knocks a 4.5 down to 3.0 average

Aroma of rich quality coffee is more powerful than the stoutness, maybe some hint of alcohol. Almost a slightly interesting tart note to it.

Flavor is bold and complex. Lots of layers and almost tastes spiced at some points.

Mouthfeel is very full, good match to the style and bold flavors. Smooth, no alcohol feel.

Overall this is a great imperial stout, marred by the gunk plopping out of the bottle.
