Cask in Euston Tap. Clear brown bitter coloured ale, foamy white head. Nose is fresh roasted coffee beans, fruity ale, red fruit, cranberries or raspberries. Taste is fresh black coffee, caramel malt, English hop bitter. Great combo of English bitter with roasted malt, coffee flavour.

downender (6525) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2012
Cask-conditioned at the Three Tuns, Bristol 19/05/2012. Per the pump clip, this is a coffee infused mild, which might be a contradiction. Deep, reddish brown with a slight, off-white head. An aroma of camp coffee, berry fruits and a touch of caramel. The flavour was similar, with plenty more fruit, before some roasted coffee beans and a gently bitter finish. A great low ABV beer.

Bottle. Black with a medium head. Coffee flavours dominate.Smooth and refreshing with lots of body considering its relatively low strength. Impressive and different.

(draught) pours a hazy copper-brown colour with a frothy beige head. aroma of vanilla, coffee beans, earth and brown sugar, with a hint of herbal hops, lots of chocolate icing and vanilla. flavour is like drinking pure cold coffee, with small hints of vanilla, dark chocolate, grass and a light toasted-bitter finish. very thin body with soft carbonation.

essexcalf (172) - Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2012
(Cask at Craft Beer Co., 13/06/12). Coffee infused mild. Clear mahogany, decent light-brown head. Light, lightly roasted coffee aroma, bit of caramel sweetness, but not much else in the aroma. Taste is light sweet (less than usual for a mild), pleasant, lightly roasted coffee and quite a "beany", almost vegetable-like taste (interesting, not unpleasant). Perfect balance. Slight bitter aftertaste. Mid-light body, slightly watery, but not too bad. Quite a bit of flavour for 3.6% and very drinkable for the style. Pulled off very well, considering the slightly unusual style.

CP&K. Clear dark red - brown beer, small off white head. Palate is fresh but dry. Rich coffee, fairly bitter. Minerals. Pretty dry finish with hop bitterness adding to the coffee bitterness. Pretty full on for 3.6%
