750mL courtesy of Shane. Awesome. Split 2 ways on Fat Tuesday.

A: Viscous pour yields cirrus fluffy cappuccino head. Black like it's afraid of the light. Glass coating legs.

N: Fudge, chocolate, and espresso bean. Vanilla edges. Berries round out the profile nicely. Has the deep lushness of the Kopi Luwak. Slightly nutty. Biscuit and some smoke/char.

T: Sweet and somewhat savory. Very nutty - walnuts and pecans and loads of dark chocolate edged by smoke and leather. Coffee penetrates the soul of this beer as does the clean finish that Kopi Luwak is so famous for having. Hint s of crystallized honey and freshly tilled dirt.

M: Viscous and coating. Alcohol is moderate, but does not burn. Can get slightly overbearing after too much.

O: A deep experience worth having. Layered with depth, this is worthy of the accolades. Don't age.
