COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2011
A lightly hazed reddish brown ale with a thick brown head. In aroma, definite coffee moka with caramel toffee, some nice burned notes, lightly fruity but overall, very well done. In mouth, a good brown ale with some nice roasted coffee, roasted notes lingering on, caramel, lingering coffee, quite good. Bomber from brewery, bottled Feb. 2011.

Sammy (8663) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2011
A coffee stout with some spices. Coffee aromas. Looks good dark and a lace sheet. Not so drinkable. Astringency builds up, acid from the roasting.Must really like coffee. stephen rich’s bottle.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2011
2011-03-18. Ruby tinged body, modest beige head. 3+ Strong coffee aroma, fresh coffee beans, dry roast character. 7+ Flavour has a similarly powerful coffee character, dry coffee grounds, roasty cofee beans up front, finishes a bit milder than it starts, bitter roast, muted malt. 6+ Average bodied palate. Brief incongruous impression of peanut butter? Decent, but for me the coffee overshadows the base beer by a large margin so I find it tough to get past that. Bottle at Volo, Toronto

Radek Kliber (6470) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAR 28, 2011
Bottle 600 ml #0689/1000
Aroma Rose , smoke, dry character with gentle richness of malts. Aroma finishing softer with character noted by marshmallows. 7+
Appearance deep ruby look. Slight haze. Bone white lighter top.
Flavor and Palate : medium light bodied. Coffee feel that is dominant. Dry roast till very finish. Rather one dimensional but “coffee guys” will like it.

HogTownHarry (6108) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2012
March 18, 2011. Bottle # 0689 courtesy of dougshoemaker. Cloudy ruby with a smallish off-white and slightly greenish creamy/foamy head. Smells like a slightly burnt cup of stale coffee - roasty, dry, acidic. Tastes the same, but with some orange zest admixed, not much alcohol. Average body, strong carbonation, a burnt/bitter cocoa finish - mehh.

blankboy (6052) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2011
Bottle [660ml] shared with friends at Volo. Pours a deep amber with a small frothy beige head. Nice aroma if you like coffee (and I do) as it smells pretty much like a cold coffee. Flavour of cold coffee with some hops, a touch watery, and a decent bitter finish. Medium bodied. Just O.K.

mabel (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2011
UPDATED: APR 10, 2011 [3648-20110318] Bottle. Chocolate toasted rice puffs aroma. Hazy, dark amber body with a quick foamy off-white head. Stale coffee flavour has an underlying sweet grainy malt. Medium body. Drinkable, just a touch young. (6/3/6/3/13) 3.1+
Overheard: "It’s been left on the button for too long."

Boutip (4733) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 5, 2013
Bottle: Poured a clear light amber color ale with a huge light brown foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of floral dry coffee notes is quite strong and dominated any other characteristics. Taste is also dominated by floral coffee notes with just the right amount of astringency. Body is light with good carbonation. Very well brewed though I am not enough of a coffee junky to appreciate this to the full extent.

Lots of coffee here. Coffee with caramel leave. Average carbonation, consistency. Overpriced at lcbo as usual with beaus. Pours dark amber. Some head and lacing. On tap at Rhino winterfest.
