3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Armsby Abbey. Pours a deep amber color with a small off-white head that leaves sticky lace in the glass. Aroma of coffee - and lots of it - with brown sugar, toffee, nuts, and faint earthy hops. Really nice smell. The flavor is a much milder version of the same. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and toasty, nutty, dry mouthfeel. Excellent coffee brown ale.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
500mL bottle. Pours clear light cola with a big coffee bean/ roasted malt aroma and not a hint of any hops. Wow first sip and you realise why SÝren is such and awe inspiring brewer. The marrige of coffee and ale has been made in heaven and it has a nice sweetness to counter the coffee/hop bitterness. Iím not a huge fan of brown ales but this beer is uniquely amazing.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with an off white head. Roast, some earthiness, íburntí, coffee and caramel. I love coffee beers, but found the coffee to be secondary and would have liked a bit more bitter coffee.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2012 Tap at armsby abbey. Aroma is a nice clean morning coffee roast, dry cocoa, hazelnuts, with a grapefruit hop kiss. Taste is a complex hoppy, fresh roast coffee. Hodgepodge of things but works really well together. Dry. Nice body. Nice lace on glass. Pretty great all around. Liked quite a bit.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2012 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours clear, dark amber with a small off white head which slowly disappears. Spotty lacing left about. Nose shows bitter coffee beans, toffee, a touch of aniseed and some piney hops. Freshly ground coffee beans come to mind. The faintest hint of milk chocolate in there too. Taste is slightly sweeter with a nice vanilla note throughout the bitter espresso like coffee notes. Heavy on the toffee with a hint of butterscotch about it. Grassy bitter and dry finish. Good stuff

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown with a fading head.
Nose shows hefty coffee, seemingly a mix of fresh and spent grounds though. Underneath that is roasted malt, dark chocolate and oats.
Flavours are dominated by coffee throughout, but again, it does seem a little old. Underneath is some sweet malt and soft alcohol before the roasty bitterness takes over.
Could benefit from a thicker body.

500 ml bottle. Pours dark brown with tan head that fades to thin layer. Aroma of coffee, tastes like burnt coffee and alcoholic fruit. Dry coffee aftertaste. Unfortunately I donít like coffee but I am sure coffee drinkers would love it.
