Thanks to UrbanCaver for sharing this at Kuhnhenn Winter Solstice. Served in a plastic cup.

A - A dark tan foam settles to a thin collar, leaving behind some splotchy lacework. Black body with a glint of brown at the fringes.

S - Big, intense coffee aroma, roasted nuts, heavily roasted malts, more coffee, and light smoke. The coffee flavor is delicious, although I'm still unconvinced I'd be able to pick Kopi Luwak blind out of a lineup of high-end coffee.

T - Taste is pretty similar, with rich high-end coffee mingling with smooth dark chocolate, rich caramel, roasted nuts, dark fruits, and even more coffee. Bitterness is surprisingly moderate considering the coffee and walnut adjuncts.

M - Typical viscous, milkshake-esque, Oil of Aphrodite body, with a low level of carbonation, silken texture, and minimal alcohol presence relative to the ABV.

D - Great beer. The coffee overpowers a lot of the flavors I found in the base beer, but they're still there in the periphery. A wonderful treatment of an excellent base beer - highly recommended. I was sad that it was only 1L growler.
