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.

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.

zach8270 (3701) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2015
(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.

kevinsenn (1301) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2015
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.

mansquito (3866) - Nueva York, New York, USA - FEB 4, 2015
New Beer Distributors, NYC 20 ounce bottle: Pours slightly hazy amber brown with a big off-white head. Aroma is sugary malts foremost, hints of coffee, some ambiguous fruitiness. and bread. Taste is more interesting and more complex than the aroma. It is a tad sweet at the front, then hits you with what is clearly the coffee grounds, but also it imparts a sort of herbal taste here. The aftertaste is very mild, but almost like dark chocolate. This is the best Beau’s beer I’ve had, and I say that because I really didn’t like the first two I drank.

Quevillon (2587) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 31, 2015
600 ml bottle from the brewery on November 28, 2014. Dark orange, small head. Mild coffee aroma, green herb notes. Taste like sweet herb coffee, nice dry hoppy notes, good bitterness. A coffee beer that is not a porter or a stout and it works!
