Poured from a bottle into a snifter. Pours flat with no head. Like oil. Black, even when held up to the light.

Smells like baker's chocolate with coffee. There are hints of vanilla and oak, as well.

The taste. A perfect balance of chocolate and coffee with vanilla on the finish - but mostly chocolate. This is a grown up version of a perfect chocolate milkshake or float. As it warms, there is some plum that comes through, but I could be crazy.

The mouth is oily and smooth. Hardly any noticeable carbonation.

This is a great brew. It's seems a little heavy for an oatmeal stout, but it is also imperial. I don't notice the booze at all. The full flavor ranks with any BA stout. I missed the small print when I ordered six of these... I was thinking 22 oz bombers, but for $10 you only get a 330 ml bottle. I got my money's worth.

From my generous brother who picked this up in Denmark. Prost, John. This was served at 55degress into a half acre snifter.

pitch black body with a dark tan head of impressive depth, retention and lacing, especially for the ABV. Damn near perfect.

Smells of roasted, almost burnt, malts and coffee, with dark belgian cacao. The aroma isn't strong but rather is quite delicate. A little bit of fig/plus/raisin/pear smell.

Taste is of roasted malts and delicate chocolate with a good deal of refined cacao. Impressive chocolate on this beer. A great deal of bitterness, and a huge winner for those like me who like bitter hoppy stouts. The coffee is not as dominant a flavor as I expected but is quite delicate and perfect. The ABV is very well hidden.

Mouthfeel is as good as it gets. Carbonation is spot on - may be a little under carbonated for some people, but this is really perfect. Coats the tongue, sticky and syrupy, dry sticky finish, everything I want out of a stout.

I want to drink this over and over again. Easily the best non-barrel-aged coffee stout I've ever had. Still in the top 5 of best stouts I've ever had. Love this beer, get it if you can, it is a delicacy.

A: Pours an incredibly dark brown, very little light getting through on the edges only. Sits a pitch black in the glass with a dark, creamy mocha head. Huge, sticky lacing and retention.

S: An incredibly, rich, vibrant coffee aroma. Very rich, heavily roasted - some ash - fresh oily coffee beans. Bitter dark chocolate. Some vanilla sweetness that gives a mocha effect and brings out some milk chocolate. Fresh acidity. some raisin. Hands down one of the most amazing coffee aromas.

T: Very full, bitter and rich. Fresh espresso bitterness, oily coffee bean acidity, and bakers chocolate. Some vanilla mocha sweetness come through at the finish. Heavily roasted - can taste some ash. Not as mind blowing as the aroma, but very impressive and incredibly enjoyable.

P: Full, viscous, fitting. Allows the flavor to open up to it's full potential. Lines the inside of the mouth

O: I love coffee beers and this is one of the best out there, I'm sure. Too bad it's difficult to impossible to obtain in the US - thanks Jimmy!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: poured like motor oil into a snifter, barely producing any foam at all; left a slight shiny, oily glaze inside the glass

S: lots of bittersweet roasted coffee beans and dark roasted malts, hinting of chocolate syrup and espresso

T: follows the nose - has a distinct coffee stout flavor, owing no doubt to the use of kopi luwak or ca phe chon coffee, which I've never had - but the blend of malts, coffee, and hops produce an earthy, faded molasses-sweet deep, dark, richly roasted flavors, with suggestions of marshmallow, vanilla, and sweet chewy hazelnut

M: slick and smooth, syrupy, slightly sticky, no palpable carbonation, slight airiness and drying from the alcohol

O: an excellent coffee stout - hits all the right marks. Price may steer some away, but this is a sure try for fans of double stouts and coffee stouts. A uniquely flavored product, on par with other top tier coffee stouts.

I have heard tales of the civet coffee, I looked up pricing and it can go for as high as 100 dollars a cup or 1,000 dollars a pound. God knows what Mikeller spent to produce this beer. Pours a beautiful pitch black color with rising toffee tan head, fine lacing left behind beautiful beer to look and salivate about. Aroma has deep alluring espresso creamed coffee, dark chocolate, and a blast of dark roasted malts. Flavors encompass the palate, it takes off with nearly burnt dark roasted malts, expressive rich coffee, acid from the coffee beans livens up the palate beautifully, most exotic beer I've ever tasted nearly 9 bucks for 11 odd ounces of this stuff definitely worth the price tag. The dark roasted malts and the creamy richness in each sip with a strong dark coffee flavor is marvelous. Mouthfeel is rich inviting, and at times a bit abrasive but all in all the dark chocolate coffee aspects meld into beauty into a full bodied creamy stout that must be experienced no alcohol burn on the palate for me this legendary beer now I know why their beers carry the hype that they have. Overall a hell of an experience when it comes to beer the type of beer that makes you stop and realize everything that you have been passionate about is coming to a pinnacle. Some folks say that beer is beer, how short sighted is that one there are creations like this.

From Platinum - aged one year.

A - black n tan, one finger coarse head, fades to somewhat scummy film. Spotty lace

S - muted, coffee as it warms.

T - blast of coffee, roasts, dry. Hollow mid palate. Some bready doughy notes, unusual for style. Also some stale hop notes.

M - lightly carbed, medium weight, not oily. No real booze.

O - not sure if I should have left this in the cellar or not.... Seems a little dull and dry.... Did I mention dry? Not an enjoyable drink.... Sad to say.
Would like to try one fresh to see if it was more balanced. Given overall profile, and also price point I will likely try.
