6oz. Pour from a 32oz. Cigar City growler into a TJ's snifter. Thanks to CarbonIS for this one. Had at a tasting 9/4/11.

A ring of light mocha head sticks around at the edges. Beer is opaque black. Outrageously thick legs.

Big coffee notes and some creamy hop notes linger in the background. Simple but quite nice.

Opens coffee and sweet honey. Creamy hop bitterness towards the middle with roasted malt graininess. More coffee at the middle, end. Finishes coffee and roasted malt. Aftertaste is more coffee. Decent. But I've had better coffee stouts.

Full bodied with low carbonation. Smooth, oily, and viscous in the mouth and goes down subtle. Finishes messy with a lingering aftertaste.

Upfront, I have to say that I’m not a huge fan of the Zhukov base beer. Here, the addition of coffee, even Kopi Luwak coffee doesn’t do much to change my opinion. A decent coffee based imperial stout but not too exciting otherwise.

crude oil coffee with the guts of earthworm. super super dark brown, earth coffee earth and more earth. then on the palate, thick, maybe thickest beer ever. taking coffee beer to not only the next level but another dimension. liked the other 2 kopi beers much more, this was just such an odd ball, again earth and coffee. crazy.

Mmmmm... enjoyed at RBWG 2010 on nitro at Redlight Redlight. The flavor and aroma on this is HUGE coffee... intense coffee on this with some chocolate. The quality of this coffee dances amazingly well with the quality of this beer. Awesome stuff, folks!
