500 ml bottle from Shenanigans. Big carbonated brown with strong coffee, nut taste. Medium body. Not heavy at all for a brown and for the coffee. Pretty decent.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a generous light beige head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is coffee and roasted grains with some chocolate notes. Taste is a coffee and roasted grain bitterness with a chocolate malty sweetness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, a well crafted brew with a nice balance of bitter and sweet. Recommended.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled. Full 0,5 liter sample. The aroma has caramel, nuts, coffee, roast, some piney hops. Dark brown coloured beer with a short, off-white head. The taste is sweet in the beginning and ends bitter dry. It has a good balance between the caramel malts and the coffee. If you think about how you would want a coffee infused brown ale, then this beer is just exactly how you want it to be. Really great.

500ml bottle in a plastic cup. Pours brown with a lacy head. Aroma of caramel and chocolate malts, coffee, and some floral hops. Flavor the same with a good blend of coffee, floral hops, and malts. Average texture. A pretty good brown ale.

Bottle. Clear brown appearance with low carbonation and a small head. Chocolate like coffee flavour dominates but doesn’t take over. Perhaps a novelty beer but still a superb one.

On tap at The Scratch. Rating from April 2014. Beer and coffee is a great combination and this one is done well. Deep black colour with plenty of coffee in both the flavour and aroma. Worth seeking out.
