4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
From the booth at le mondiale 2011. Amber pour with a light brown head. Aroma of cold coffee right off the bat. This is all coffee. Cold coffee, esspresso, fresh ground coffee beans, mani couldnt get my nose out of this, the best coffee aromaive ever had the pleasure to smell in a beer. The flavor was well....more coffee! Imagine that! There were some nice bready malts though too. The fnish of this beer reminded me of a strong german bock, flavoured with coffee. Awesome stuff!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lonely-looking 600mL bottle from the LICBO. Pours a clear brownish amber with a large beige head. The aroma is insanely filled with coffee, and not synthetic coffee. It’s like when you open a fresh bag of coffee beans or grounds, holy crap, and as someone who loves that aroma, I am into this. Mixed in is some citrusy elements which could actually be from the coffee if they used a lot of lighter roasted beans. Flavour hits with the coffee right away, with some mild malty sweetness following and then a bitter finish. This is the coffeeist coffee beer I’ve ever had. It’s bizarre but in a good way. As it warms I do get some tasty, biscuit malt quality in the finish that balances the dry coffee elements. Mild carbonation and a fuller feel, but no booze. The tag that came with it says this is actually an ’Amber Lager’, adding yet another arguably pointless twist to a creative beer. I like the Bridgehead chain of cafés, and I mostly like Beau’s, but I often find collaborative brews like this turn out mediocre at best, but this one lived up to expectations. This might actually be my favourite product I’ve had from Beau’s.

Tasted good, just odd to have coffee and beer together, would be excellent for the morning

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Really impressed with this beer. You will love it if you love coffee. It has a taste that is completely dominated by coffee. Its not sweet at all, has some bitterness just like black dark coffee would. Head is tasty and brown, but goes away quickly. It leaves a bit of a lingering taste in your mouth just like coffee would.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a light chestnut color with a small off white cap. Aroma of toasted cereals and coffe are intense. Slick mouth feel, rich character. THe front side of this amber ale has massive coffee tastes riding just above some wondrful toasted malts, hopping is in the background and compliments the bitter end of the coffee. Long wet finish where coffee drops back a bit to expose the hop bite.
A very nice brew. If I closed my eyes I’d have thought I was drinking a coffee-infused bockbier, it’s that smooth and well condiioned.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I recognize this scent. i can’t place it though. Something baked. Anyway... dark dark amber pour, lacy head. Familiar baked scent. Strong coffee taste, maybe it’s a brewed or perculated scent that I’m not placing. Nice mix of flavours that finishes suprisingly clean. Really pleasant.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bouteille 600 ml. 6%. Couleur ambrée foncée, très claire, mousse beige. Arôme de café frais, un peu de vanille. En bouche, TRÈS bel équilibre...notes de café torréfié assez accentuées mais pas trop, notes de vanille, pas trop sucrée, un peu de houblon qui ne masquent pas le café. Finale caramel, vanille, une légère amertume. Excellente beer au café

Pours a clear reddish brown with a bit of white head. Smell is a large dark from Bridgehead. I had enough of them during university to instantly recognize the smell. Palate is light bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Taste is a large dark at bridgehead. I’m not sure if I like this so much because it’s good or because of nostalgia.

2013/03/01 - Pours a dark amber color with a thin off white head. Aroma is coffee and sweet, roasted malts. Taste is similar to nose with a very quick coffee burst and a dry aftertaste. Medium to full body with lots of carbonation. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
