COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Classic Jersey-ism is “regular coffee.” Here when you order a “regular coffee” at any place you trust to make a pork roll and cheese you get a paper cup of coffee with “milk and 2 sugars” rather than a “black coffee that hasn’t had the caffeine removed.” Acidic bitter coffee flattened by milk and sweetened; the perfect foil for the salty unctuous savor of breakfast on a roll. For our homage to Jersey’s breakfast beverage, we teamed up with our neighbors at Fair Mountain Coffee Roasters looking for an elevated version of classic crappy coffee. We chose Mexican Chiapas for its bitterness akin to artichoke, roasting it a little darker than usual, along with Ethiopian Sidamo for its pleasant lemon-like acidity, which we pushed up through fermentation. We added this coffee blend to a high gravity golden cream ale, contributing our “milk and 2 sugars.” Drink Regular Coffee because running over a black beer with coffee is no way to get to work.

12oz can shared by AdamChandler. Thanks Adam! Pours golden brown with a few bubbles. Aroma is coffee syrup. Taste is just shy of coffee syrup with a bit of carbonation and booze. Nice coffee flavor, but too sweet and boozy.

12 oz. can thanks to AdamChandler. Light brown color. Aroma is a metric butt ton of coffee with just a hint of creamer.

The flavor is mostly coffee, with huge amounts of lactose sugar. This is diabetes in a can. The texture is creamy but damn, it is cloying. You can easily spilt a can 5 ways. WAY sweet.

From a can, pale yellow. Smells like acidic old cold brew with sugar. pretty unique. Nice mouthfeel, thin but hearty with flavors of coffee followed by sugar, cream, light bitterness with brown sugar. Mouthfeel is thin. It’s bursting with flavor but I do not get the 12% ABV. it’s intense and really really nice. not sure I’ do an entire can.

12 ounce can. Pours a mostly clear copper orange color with a small white head. A light nose mostly of coffee and sweet malts. The flavor is big sugary coffee, a massive sweet malty base, the coffee is sugary milky and just sweet overall. Like the other version of this I had, the base is just too sweet and not flavorful enough to deal with the coffee. It’s OK, but very sweet and a lot to drink.

On tap for Tørst 3rd anniversary. Pours a partly cloudy orangey yellow. White head. Big coffee aromas. Some caramel. Taste is pretty sweet. No bitter black coffee. Pretty good beer but a bit too syrupy and sweet for me.

jflopsu (1186) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 25, 2016
Pours a light clear gold - a lot lighter than expected. A decent coffee, grain and vanilla aroma. A strong coffee flavor with dark drunks, caramel, sweet malts, and sugar. A dry but sweet malt lingering aftertaste.

trapped (2143) - New York, TURKEY - FEB 15, 2016
Can, thanks to Toastedpuppy. Clear dark orange with off-white foamy large head, malt and faint coffee beans aroma, medium carbonation, slightly sweet creamy taste, with coffee flavor and alcohol undertones, creamy body, medium malty finish. Coffee flavor was not too pronounced, strong alcohol content was not masked too well.

Hazy orange color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of coffee, cream, caramel, vanilla, and alcohol. Taste of coffee, lactose, sweeter caramel, and alcohol in the finish.
