3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at Kurtkeller 005: Coffee-tastic 01 on 02/08/2014. Pours a slightly hazy reddish-brown color with a medium foamy tan head that recedes gradually to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted coffee, malt and hops. Medium to full body with flavors of charred malt, black coffee and earthy hops. The finish is roasty with a grainy malt and espresso aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika. Dark brown with foggy floaties. Tall light off-white head that falls down after a little while. Delicious roasted coffee aroma. Rich malty caramel flavours. Refreshing carbonation to cut the sweet malts and the coffee. Well balanced beer with an interesting edge. It is a somewhat unusual coffee beer, but a great one. Love it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Far brew...not much of an aroma..despite claims. No distractions from bad brewing...obviously cuz big brewery. Malty maple not bad here...slight bitterness from hops or roasted coffee like sensation.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
750ml served in a snifter
A - Dark brown with orange/red highlights. 2 fingers of fizzy tan head vanishes, leaving no trace behind.
S - Powerful nose of roasted coffee grinds and brown bread, spicy rye, amaretto, spicy hops, grain husk, alcohol brings notions of hazelnuts.
T - Cold coffee melded with heavy dose of bakers chocolate, roasted grains, toasted rye bread, tobacco, spicy hops show up mid palate along with amaretto, and some nuttiness. There’s a tangyness toward the finish, alcohol sneaks in on the finish.
M - Light side of medium smooth carbonation, light to medium feel, thins out as it sets.
It’s nice to see coffee in something other than a stout. Plenty of coffee with a spicy chocolate/rye backdrop. The alcohol pushes in a little but is expected. I don’t see this aging very well.
