Two local companies, Beau’s All Natural Brewing and Bridgehead Coffee, have collaborated to create a special beer to help Ottawans keep warm during Winterlude this year. “WinterBrewed” is a strong amber ale brewed by Beau’s, infused with an organic coffee selected by Bridgehead. The beer selected for the blend holds its own as well: a strong ale with a rich amber colour, which features toasty, biscuity notes from the malt, and a herbal, slightly fruity contribution from the hops.

Coffee caramel hops and dark malt aroma. Brown amber color with a foamy brown head. Hoppy bitter taste with a slight nibble on the tongue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Heavy hoppy aroma with hints of citrus, a light coudy appearance with a nice even frothy head, nice hop taste with a easy finish. Was a good beer

Golden colour, coffee way forward. It's like the best iced coffee beer lovers could hope for. Just the right amount of bitterness. The perfect after dinner beer.

Hell look if that ain’t that hophead Hippyhop down there right below me. This brew pours reclaimed barnboard varnish orange-brown with a beautiful cappuccino style foam cap. This is definitely coffee forward, fresh ground medium roast, against the backdrop of a decent amber. The coffee here is great & as a coffee fiend im impressed with the balance achieved here. Nice to see a brewer put coffee in something other than a stout. Enjoyed while baking a québécois Porc aux Pommes et a l’erable & listening to mid century tiki lounge christmas cocktail songs. Another interesting Beaus beer.

Pour is burnt orange with a creamy tan cap that sticks around and leaves some decent lacing. Nose is unsurprisingly dominated by a coffee aroma, but there was a surprising citrus/floral element that I wasn’t expecting. Taste is toasted grain, a bit of citrus, and a bitter finish with faint floral elements and lots of lingering coffee. Alcohol is virtually nonexistent, and weirdly It’s a touch watery, but this is a tasty, adventurous brew. As radiomgb noted it’s wonderfully bizarre (I think I stole his score, note for note, too).

600ml bottle from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Clear ruby in colour with a thin off-white head, light lacing. The aroma is of coffee, burnt malts. The flavour is of coffee, roasted malts, light hops. Finishes long with coffee, drying out. Wonderfully bizarre.

Dégustée (bouteille) le 30 mai 2013 au Mondial de la Bière 2013 à Montréal (D10C3K326i). Bière brune limpide. Col mince beige durable. Odeur de café moulu marquée, on semble sentir un pot de café. Très douce, peu sucrée, un peu amère. Saveur de café moulu amer. Donne l’impression de boire du café moulu qui a trempé dans l’eau. Plutôt légère, goûte un peu l’eau. Alcool bien caché. Aurait pu être plus sucrée.

Bottle from the back of my stash - I suspect it’s a year or so old, oops! Very slightly hazy and dark copper-amber with a thin cap of creamy mocha foam. Aroma is all about freshly ground coffee at first, before some toasted, caramely malt starts to poke through. Flavour is pretty well balanced - sweet biscuity malt, strong coffee, a bit of sweet-tart fruitiness, and a medium length, moderately bitter finish. Quite good for an unintentionally aged beer that really should’ve been sampled fresh.
