(outliner detected) Burnt coffee taste. Roasted malt. Nothing special.

To be fair, it was quite old when I drank it. Very metallic and green peppery. Thinnest of the line.

Too much bitter coffee flavor and harsh alcohol bite for my taste.

Kopi provides nice rich berry notes and it's stunning how much coffee is here given the passage of time. But, like most speedway variants, it's harsh on the finish and the alcohol is very prominent.
