Pours dark brown with a small head. Aroma of roasted malts, cold coffee, grainy malts, hints of ash. Taste is malty and slightly roasty with notes of coffee, cocoa, chocolate and hints of grain. Finish is sweetish and slightly roasty with some coffee notes. Decent, a bit unbalanced brown ale.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a light clear brown color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of coffee is pretty intense with loads of floral notes without any astringency. Taste is also dominated by floral coffee notes with light caramelized notes. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very good offering with great balance and no astringency.

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.
