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 don’t like coffee but I am sure coffee drinkers would love it.

just a spectacular coofee brown ale. perfectly balanced hopps, coffee and nut flavor makes this one seriously crushable. It is hard to believe it is 8% alcohol. pours almost black in color with a thick tan head. smells like coffee. what a great beer from new zealand...they have figured out how to use hopps.

Not bad. Not really sensing the coffe flavour in it but getting a real good taste anyway. Would be good with spicy food.

BOTTLE. Shared RW. Cola brown in colour with small beige head. Coffee is real strong on the nose. Malty up front with the coffee just kicking your taste buds, finishing very strong and thick with a burnt malt & bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from beer and cider bar, Bangkok. Pours quite a dark brown with thick tanned head. Aroma is lots of coffee, bitter cocoa and burnt toast. Taste is of lots of coffee so no surprises there. Really nice and smooth. I’d try this again I’d I could find it a bit cheaper. Think it cost £10+ from memory.
