About this Beer:So what makes this beer unique enough to spend $15 on an 8oz bottle? Poop! Yes, I said Poop. This beer is made with Kopi Luwak which is the most expensive coffee in the world, $160 a pound. First, they feed the berries to Asian Palm Civet, which look like this:
Appearance: The beer poured very dark black with a slight brown head that diminished very quickly. The appearance was everything I expected from an imperial stout.
Smell: The smell was wonderful. Coffee at first sniff followed by a bit of booze, dark malt and a hint of roasty caramel. The smell was very inviting and really made you want to take a sip.
Taste: I only had 4oz to judge this on, I shared with my wife! Good news, the 4oz was plenty to tell the story of taste. Rich coffee, dark malt, chocolate and a bit of apple come through thanks to the barrel aging. I enjoyed the bit of booze that hit my palate, it was balanced with all of the other flavors.
Mouthfeel: This beer had a very rich full creamy body and a bit heat came through in the end along with a bit of dryness.
Drinkability: At $15 for 8oz it is hard to say this beer is truly "drinkable". That being said I'm glad I tried it and I wouldn't hesitate having another one if I have a few extra bucks next time I see it.
