look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pint poured into Gulden Draak tulip.

A: Pours thick, black and almost chunky like used motor oil. Thin dark brown head. Awesome lacing. Head dissipates to a steady brown ring.

S: Spicy hops, chocolate and roasted malts and a strong background of Civet coffee.

T: Coffee, chocolate, spicy hop bitterness. Definitely a strong and very different coffee flavor. Alcohol apparent in finish.

M: Very smooth. Medium carbonation. Warming alcohol finish.

D: High alcohol, unique flavor and higher price make a pint just enough.

sweet and smooth up front with a kick towards the end. the coffee really comes out and a strong dark chocolate and coffee bitterness. sweet finish mixed with roasted malts. simply amazing.

moderate carbonation through out with a smooth body

great flavors here, tons of coffee. i could drink this all the time. price could come down a notch though but then they couldnt use poop?

16.9oz bottle poured into Sprecher snifter.

A- Pours a very dark brown with a finger's worth of mocha head. The head recedes quickly and doesn't leave much for lacing. Just a small amount around the rim of the beer.

S- Very smooth coffee and chocolate greet the nose right away. Some nice roasted malts and good brown sugar.

T- The coffee is very smooth and not bitter like some other coffee stouts. The oatmeal helps smooth it out. A little bit of sweetness, most likely brown sugar and some roasted malts. The alcohol stays well hidden.

M- Medium to full bodied that is very smooth. No real feel of carbonation on the tongue but by no means flat. Just a tad bit of heat on the back of the throat from the alcohol.

D- Goes down about as easy as an imperial stout can. Great mouthfeel that is like silk. I am glad I was able to try this although it may be a tad gimmicky but a good beer nonetheless.

Split a 500ml bottle with my wife; poured into a Duck Rabbit snifter. A dense ½ finger of dark caramel colored head formed on top of the black body. The color of this is pretty incredible...so dark and pure it turns the snifter into a reflecting pool. The foam stuck around for a while and coated the sides of the snifter nicely...good lacing.

Hmm...the nose put me off a little...I was expecting a huge coffee bomb...not the case. The dominate aromas are dark fruits (fermented cherries) and molasses. The coffee is present, but more in the background.

The taste is right where the nose suggests. Lots of aged fruits and molasses dominate the palate. I am getting a lot of anise also. Smoke, espresso, charred beef and chocolate are all present, but like the nose, in the background only.

The mouth feel is the best part of this drink. Thick and smooth without being overly creamy or heavy. Very little carbonation...almost flat.

Is this drinkable? Yes, but the very strong flavors and booziness (which comes out in the finish) would limit one's consumption. This is a beer that every stout lover should try...truly a unique beer drinking experience!

A: A thin head but a thick beer, completely black pour.

S: A very strong coffee aroma laced with oatmeal, a very thick smell that completely fills the nostrils.

T: A solid imperial stout, very front heavy with the coffee with an oatmeal and chocolate afterthought.

MF/D: Thick feel, smooth on the palate, would try again, though certainly not my favorite imperial stout. perfect for sharing (thanks hu5om) from the pint bottle.

s- deep dark stout, malts on malts, coffee, dark chocolate

t- damn that's delic. coffee. a stiff punch. bold and black, malty, lasting, dark chocolate. goodbye palate, but I'm all right about it.

m- a medium thick syrup. a mini tingle of alcohol.

d- very good. i put it a hair under stone's ris, but above the founder's breakfast stout. considering how good this coffee is supposed to be, could they have done more?

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a snifter. Split with airohead2001 at a recent tasting. I didn't know the story behind the uniqueness of this beer but once he informed me I was even more intrigued/excited.

A: Opaque black, with a one-half finger tan head. Some lacing, and moderate head retention.

S: Great smelling and somewhat complex with coffee, dark chocolate, and a little bit of alcohol.

T: A simply wonderful taste. Some bitter coffee, though nowhere near as bitter as cup a joe. Very nicely balanced coffee taste with dark fruits, chocolate, and a tad bit of hops at the finish.

M: It was light on the carbonation, which knocked it a bit for the quality of head and appearance, but it definitely made up for that with the mouthfeel! Great creaminess with a wonderful aftertaste and chewiness.

D: Well the joke of the night was "man, this is really good for poop beer." The truth is, it is really good beer period. I didn't like it as much as BCBCS, but overall an excellent coffee beer.

Poured from a 16.9oz. "half-liter" bottle into a standard pint glass
Dark,black oil-like in color, with a dark chocolate,thick, milkshake head of foam that sits quietly atop a cascading pour. Beautiful.
Aroma-Dark roasted coffee,rich chocolate,freshly dug dark, rich earth.
Taste-Dark roasted espresso with cream,cocoa, dark chocolate, and a ghost-like underlying smokiness of char-grilled meat. Subtle, warming alchohol in the finish, but seemingly unnoticeable until about halfway through th bottle.
Overall, a fantastic "velvet hammer" of an imperial stout. Big, bold character,super creamy, complex and deliscious. Not an "everday" beer by any means, but certainly worth the price for a taste of a truly amazing beer. God bless the weasels!! (Brewed with Vietnamese coffee beans excreted from civets, an indigenous weasel-like animal)!

Poured from a 500mL bottle into my Portsmouth tulip. Cap pops off with suitable flatulence - but the immediate aroma doesn't reveal civet guano or anything. Served lightly chilled.

Seal brown opaque body with a fallow and fawn head which recedes slowly to a finger of incredibly dense pearling chocolate milk shake. Heavy tendrils of lace go nowhere, though you can make out the glassy outline of the legs.

Coffee, dark malt, chocolate, baked oats, a touch of pepper, and slabs of fertile moist loam in the nose.

Heavily roast flavors follow the aromatics but add a depth of coffee-bean and vague licorice and berry flavors as well. Hops contribute a touch of bitterness and spice which melds with the astringency of roast malt and coffee to lend a wonderful dryness to the finish. All the flavors are very well integrated into the whole. Mellow and sophisticated overall.

Chewy, dense, velvety mouthfeel with moderate carbonation.

Fans of black coffee need only apply regarding the drinkability - there is some subtlety to this brew that makes it one of the better examples of the style; it is similar to but distinct from Péché Mortel, Cup A Joe, and Founders Breakfast stouts, though choosing a favorite from this list would be difficult.

HUGE thanks to glazeman for sharing this one - a beer I thought I would never have the opportunity to try. The highlight of our tasting.

A - Beautiful, one finger head with excellent retention and lacing. Black as night - a truly wonderful looking beer.

S - A strangely wonderful smell - aged meat, bacon, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and cream.

T - Taste is rich and very complex. Layers of figs, chocolate, and coffee. The finish is slightly sour with a touch of alcohol.

M - Thick and chewy - just what I was hoping for, with great carbonation.

D - High drinkability, but it is limited by the heat of the alcohol and the sour finish. Overall, an excellent beer.

Reviewed from notes.

A- Pitch black with a dark tan head that builds to a finger in size and retains decently. Nice suds and a fine coat of lace. Good cloud and ring sick around.

S- A great cocoa and coffee balance up front in an aroma with great strength. Dark fruit mixed in as well with a tiny kick of alcohol, very nice.

T- Amazing balance of coffee and cocoa powder. The dark fruit notes blend in excellently. Some definite earthy and grassy tones here. I love how this tastes like dark bitter cocoa powder and not chocolate. ABV hidden amazingly.

MF- Very creamy rich moderate body with smooth carbonation. Slight warmth from the alcohol. Finishes with cocoa in a body that should be a bit thicker.

DB- Very expensive but worth it for this great, unique cocoa powder fruit taste. The coffee could be a bit stronger but it might just taste slightly different because it is pooped out. Great beer, worth having again if I can afford it.

What's THIS!? Civet poo provides us with a piquant porridge?

*Ahem* Sorry.

Managed to snag a few bottles of this after trying it for the first time at the Surly Goat (again!), compliments of Ryan (also again!).

Pours a smooth, tarry black with a dense brown head that quickly dissipates into a thin, whispy spiral on the top.

NOSE is thick with finely chopped, roasted espresso and rich dark chocolate. Earthy overtones of wet leather, toffee and cherry pits.

The TASTE and MOUTHFEEL work in tandem as far as sensations go: with an immediate, biting bitterness of espresso followed by undertones of toffee and burnt wood and the tang of minerals in wet soil.

FINISH reminds you that this is 11%. The 'cool' flavors of the wood and soil quickly make room for a touch of heat and astringency flanked by more burned oak and over-ripe cherries.

Much thanks to cbutova for sharing this. I hope to get one of my own soon.

Pours as black as a weasels soul. Dark brown head is big at first, turning to a swirly cap. Leaves some lacing. Poop molecules...err...I mean sediment at the bottom.

Smell is excellent. Rich fudge chocolate, coffee and lots of dark fruit - dark berries and raisins. Almost a mango/coconut element. Really great mix of fruit, chocolate and coffee. Easily one of the best smelling stouts I have had.

The fruit is also huge in the taste, much more than I thought it would be. Still getting a huge dark fruit vibe, dark berries, cherries, and raisins. The rich chocolate fudge and coffee are excellent, taste pretty much matches the smell. A good amount of sweetness. Alcohol is very, very well hidden.

Mouthfeel is very creamy, carbonation is pretty level, but the most impressive part is how much it hides the booze. Are you SURE this is beer? Not some thinner high quality milkshake?

Very drinkable and enjoyable for the alcohol content. Pricey but Cam (cbutova) tells me the coffee used in this is $600/pound. An entirely different beast from Beer Geek Breakfast.

Shared a bottle with a friend. Poured into a irs tulip.

Fresh out of a very cold cooler. The smell is an INTENSE bitter dark chocolate.

The taste is the same. Some roasted malt character to it, but the main flavor is like the darkest cacao chocoalte bar you have ever had. Very tasty... but as it warms a very smoky flavor starts to develop. Not the most fond of this flavor. but I had made my way through most of the glass!

a very good beer IMO, will have to remember to serve this pretty cold and drink it on the faster side with some ice cream or something!

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a nonic.

Pours a deep, viscous, black. Almost completely devoid of light with a thick, creamy, dark tan head. Nose is strong scents of coffee, molases, cocoa, and a faint hint of hops. Taste is more of the same. Coffee and cocoa notes really dominate here. Thick chewy mouthfeel that isn't too sticky. Even at 10.9% still a very drinkable beer. Glad that this one lived up to the hype.

500mL bottle served into a tulip glass

Pours a lovely deep brown. Pretty much black. The body sits thick in the glass. The head is quite dark; a burnt caramel color. It only gets to one and a half fingers but it laces well and hugs the sides of the glass with tenacity.

Initial aromas are smoke, tobacco leaf and lots of roasted malt. There is coffee amidst the roast (as one would hope). There is an element of what fellow BA'er FernMaster called "dark poop fruit smell." I know what he is getting at - there is a sour mash sort of smell that also has a spoiled fruit quality to it. This is pretty unique. I don't fully know what I am smelling, which I'm guessing is because of the civet cat coffee (which I have never had).

This is an exquisite, unique Imperial Stout. The deep roast is what I get first but it softens and opens up to dry leaves and a touch of raisin-rum cake. The coffee develops as bitter, bitter espresso that contains a certain pungent, fruity quality that I can't place (blueberry is what comes to mind)(which, again, I am attributing to the civet cat poop coffee). The finish is very nutty. A rich nutty quality that yields to smoke and roasted bean. This is top-notch.

The body isn't thick enough for the ideal Imperial Stout but the the relative thinness is good for carrying all the flavors throughout the palate. A beer this strong (in both flavor and ABV%) can only be so drinkable but it is certainly good in the scoring category.

Poop beer is a unique experience that every stout lover should have. I've never had a coffee stout quite like it and I suspect that I never will. The combination of bitterness and fruitiness from the coffee and the nutty, smoky malt make for a great beer.

500 mL from the second batch into a Sam Smith tulip pint glass

A: This beer pours like a black hole. A soul-sucking vortex that mercilessly devours all light. Half finger copper/brown head that disappears quickly and leaves a faint ring of its former-self. No lacing.

S: Massive cocoa smells, think 85% dark chocolate bar kind of cocoa. A mountain of roasted ground coffee. Caramel, burnt grains, raisins and vanilla in that order. Warming alcohol tickles my nose. Bitter and acidic with sweet notes and a slight boozy characteristic, exactly how an imperial stout should smell to me.

T: First sip, wow this beats every imperial stout I've had until now. Right away I get the raisins and booze but its not a particularly hot beer, even at almost 11% ABV. Heavy on the chocolate, which I loved about this beer, with some vanilla and caramel pulling through. Then the coffee hits. I hate coffee, I love coffee flavor, but I hate coffee none the less. This beer might just make a coffee drinker out of me. Smooth and even a little creamy, beautifully balanced between bitter and fruity, bold and tasty daring you to have another sip right away. Absolutely incredible. None of the ash/smoke/charcoal mentioned from others that have had this batch, mine was perfect.

M: I knew when it poured thick enough to be mistaken for molasses that this would be great. Thick, viscous, and coating on my tongue. Not overly carbonated either. Not so thick and flat that I need to choke it down, but man this beer is a meal.

D: This beer dares you to have sip after sip, bottle after bottle until the day you no longer can enjoy this wonderful beer. The ABV, price, and availability prevent this though. I wish this were more easily available at least, this may be my new favorite imperial stout. What an incredible beer, I was nervous that it wouldn't live up to the hype and I am so glad that it did.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a small snifter glass.

A: Color is black trailing to a dark brown at the edge. Pours with a 3/4 inch bright brown head that slowly dissipates to a thin brown film on top. Nice lacing on the edge of the glass.

S: First smell is very earthy. Pulled from the fridge, this beer needed some time to warm-up and open up. As it did, the dark cocoa and coffee aromas became more apparent. Smells like dark roasted espresso beans. Also getting a faint, but deep woodsy scent.

T: Wow, the flavors are intense. Way more than anticipated from the smell. Solid blast of smokey, roasted coffee flavors early. Flavor continues to be very earthy, very strong. Mid taste, chocolate and some faint sweetness from the malts show up with a lingering coffee bitterness. The heat from the alcohol slowly builds and there is a nice warmth on the finish. Finish is long and outside of the warmth from the alcohol, reminds me of drinking good dark coffee.

M: Big body, thick, clingy. This is a meal, definitely a sipper. Carbonation moderate, about right. Edit: marked down a notch due to increasing graininess as I got towards the of the bottle. Last two or three tablespoons of last pour were dumped due to heavy sediment.

D: Not an everyday beer, even putting aside the price. I'm glad I got to try this though. One of the most intense flavor experiences yet. The coffee literally smacks you in the face on first taste. While I will definitely have this again, I wouldn't consider it an easy to drink beer. Edit: I dropped one rating because this beer literally became tiring to drink. I had about 4/5 of the bottle and that was too much in one 90-minute session.

A: poured black with brown highlights with a thin head and good lacing sticking to the glass.

S: lovely coffee aromas with chocolate and roasted malts and a strange earthy note to it. There is also slight booze to the beer after a couple whiffs.

T: the taste is also big on the coffee with chocolate and woody accents and great roastiness that the malts adds. Booze and a mild bitter bite finsh off the taste.

M: full body with moderate carbonation and a nice sweet coffee and mild hop bite finish.

D: really intresting stout from mikkeller. They make great beer and always have me satisfied. I've had this beer a couple times and it has been great all the time.

Pours with a short, brown head with melted caramel edges. Body is the requisite black with no light or visible carbonation. Really nice lacing.

Smell is interesting: roasted coffee beans, almonds, and dark chocolate.

Whoa, flavor punches you unexpectedly with an incredibly roasty, dark bark bitterness. Bittersweet chocolates. Mouthfeel starts with the bitter bite, then moves to a rich oil slick - interesting. Finishes fairly dry though.

Drinkability is a bit rough, but the good flavor and rich mouthfeel keep it at least average for the style.

My recommendation would be to lay a couple down for 2-3 years and see if that smooths things out. I'll be picking up a couple more.

A- Black as oil with some deep ruby highlight and a dense tan head.

S- Very earthy, coffee aroma with an espresso-like intensity and some hints of berries and honey.

T- Very deep roasted and burnt flavor with notes of coffee, nuttiness, a little smokey and this deep earthy/woody undertone that is really unique. Touch of booze is noticeable at the finish; bit of a warming alcohol presence as well.

M- Very smooth, med/full body with an easy carbonation.

D- Definitely one of the most unique stouts I've ever tasted; truly and experience and well-worth seeking out.

Pours a very, very dark brown. Just a crack of brown shows through the black gloom when held to the light. Head is magnificent. Dark mocha brown, very dense and marshmallowy on top, small bubbles on the edge, retaining well and leaving absurdly generous sheets of lace. Perfect - a tremendous achievement of beer aesthetics.

Nose is intensely robust, huge coffee aroma with spiced charcoal strength. Yeah that intense roasted aroma, but sweet, and not sharp. Sometimes with strength comes a sharp alcohol spice that stings the eyes, but this is just rich, chocolatey coffee potency. Magnificently tempered.

Tastes strong and intense. Lots of dark, intensely-roasted flavour. Starts toasty with a touch of espresso bitterness on the front and then gets sweet, chocolatey on the mid and a bitter, strong, alcoholic roastedness returns on the back, mixes with hints of mint. But yeah, very strong coffee dominates, but is blended with other beautifully robust complexities. It gives me all the blackness I've lacked since my death metal days. Ash, coffee, black pepper, combined with a cognac strength, oh it's a wonderful, explosively flavoursome beer.

Feels like licking polished marble, smooth and cool, not a hint of alcohol jutting out. It's noticeable and thick but just not harsh. Beautiful.

Drinking this every day? Yeah, wouldnb't happen. Best enjoyed in a sipping way with a few friends, just fantastic stuff.

a - pours nearly pitch black with a two-finger, dense, frothy medium brown head, one of the darkest heads I've ever seen, nice retention and great lacing, great looking stout

s - burnt toast, dark chocolate, earth and dark roast coffee mixed with dark fruits, blueberry and cherry, slight hoppy and caramel notes as well, light alcohol heat, very complex aroma

t - big dark chocolate blast up front along with a strong coffee flavor, the bitterness from the coffee is a bit muted (thanks to the civets?), very earthy, blueberry, cherry and caramel notes on the midpalate and finish, along with lingering dark roast coffee and light bitterness and char, a little alcohol heat on the finish, pretty complex overall, I'd like to rate it about a 4.75 here

m - medium to full bodied, moderate to lower carbonation, fairly dry finish, good alcohol warming

d - not extremely drinkable, but not bad for the style, the complexity make me want to keep drinking, but the palate definitely gets worn out after awhile

Pours a super deep cloudy black color with a rocky, root beer float-like caramel head. The rocky head disspates within a minute or two down to a 1/2 inch. The aromas were so rich and organic. Brilliant velvety oatmeal, dark burn chocolate malt, lovely rich espresso coffee, and a hint of dry hop. The flavor is just outrageous. Dark chocolate covered espresso beans, silky oatmeal, bright dark malt, bitter coffee, all with a great hop bite at then end brings the palate dry and refreshed. Whichever Belgian yeast was used in this beer made it superb and added much complexity. Astonishing how drinkable this beer is for being 10.9%.
