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.

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.

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.

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.
