Once again I’m left underwhelmed by Beau’s. With all the hype it gets around my parts (perhaps being a Grad student does this--Beau’s ticks off all the right boxes for my demographic), I have yet to taste a Beau’s beer that really gets me excited. I have yet to have a bad beer by the brewer, but for me even their one-offs can’t touch those of other Ontario brewers like Flying Monkeys, Muskoka, Nickel Brook, etc. This beer is no different. It pours beautifully, really great deep ruby red colour with a solid, slightly tan head. The smell and taste is of fresh coffee--and I suppose your love of coffee determines a lot with the beer. Underneath the coffee flavour is some sweet maltiness, a typical amber combination of flavours and not much else. Thin bodied for something that initially seems to be much heavier. A beer that could be more than it is; I wouldn’t turn it down, but it is not something I would search out either.

Bottled sample from rib eye jacks. Taste of coffee right away. Then toffee then beer. Very tasty

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A murky dirty copper body, with a moderate, slightly off-white head.
Aromas are strong coffee, especially as it warms. Really off-putting as you bring the glass up to your nose.
The tastes have some red fruits in the background, but it and anything else is struggling to break through the coffee flavour. I’m thinking they should have cut the measure of coffee in about half and this might have been a far more interesting beer. Right now it tastes more like somebody dumped a bit of beer into your cup of cold coffee. Could never drink more than one of these. Maybe ever.

(bottle - 20 oz) Copper pour with a ton of foam. Fizzed over when I opened the bottle. Definite coffee note in the aroma with a bit of hops coming up at the end. Flavor is like you took a very strong iced coffee and dry hopped it. Really different but I liked it.

Bottle. Fruit punch and coffee aroma. Pleasant fruity amber flavour, with noticeable coffee flavour that doesn’t clash like I’d expect it to. Good brew.
