3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Canette 355ml. Couleur orangée voilée, mousse beige fuyante laissant un anneau sur les parois du verre. Arôme de
café, crème?, malt, alcool. Goût de café, sucré, alcool, malt, crème en arrière-goût. Carbonatation moyen, corps moyen-dense. On a vraiment l’impression de boire un café crème trop sucré (et alcoolisé...).

Can shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear amber color with a moderate frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium coffee and balanced aroma. Medium to full body with a creamy texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted sweet coffee flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
draft sample offering at the source..nitro pour so head was quite substantial in little taster and settled nicely..wow the color on this is insane for a 12% beer..light to medium tan/cream color with noticeable haze when held up to the light..floating particles abound..leaves a creamy white head atop..wow the aroma on this is crazy with sugar and coffee married nicely with some creamy marshmallow on the side..the mouthfeel is quite unique and borders on being a touch cloyingly sweet from the sugar I suppose but it does have that solid coffee character..sweet and low taste..don’t really taste the 12% on the initial sip but after a few minutes a little caffeinated heat kick warms the senses and this is an intriguiging beer for sure...would pair nicely with a good jersey pork roll/egg sandwich indeed...worth seeking out for sure..call it a gimmick beer but I thought it was pretty tasty and well thought out..

12 oz can from Nimbleprop shared with Tmoney99. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, creamy coffee, vanilla, lactose sugar, more Cafe latte, no way I would have guessed it was 12 %, perhaps a bit of oxidation, interesting to get the coffee from a blond beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Can, 0.355 l, at laiti’s, 20150613, thanks) The beer poured golden and hazy. Its head was small and white. Aroma had coffee with cream. Palate was medium bodied and warming with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, sweetness, coffee, fruitiness and bitterness. Aftertaste was boozy, sweet and bitter. A rather weird brew with strange aroma. A gimmick beer.

355ml can - thanks VastActiv!
Potato starch aroma right off the bat, then orange, and then .. wait for it ... beans! Tastes very sweet. Coffee with milk and way too much sugar. Alcohol was I guess well hidden. The aroma was by the books a complete horror, but there was something so weird about it I almost enjoyed it. Maybe the train-wreck aspect amused me.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can (12 oz).
Appearance: Clear golden-orange with a small white head, low retentation and no lacing.
Aroma: Coffee, mild fruitiness, sweetness and some alcohol but still not too boozy considering the abv.
Taste: Rather sweet and boozy, but still not that much considering the abv. Coffee, mild fruitiness, vanilla, a bit of chocolate and light bitterness.
Palate: Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Cold coffee finish. Warming. A bit of an herbal aftertaste.
Overall: This is a boring high abv base beer with coffee... but at least it’s not too cloying for what it is. This is not bad, it’s just boring.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml can @Laiti’s, thanks. Clear amber color. Small size, white head. Beans, fruity, coffee and alcohol in aroma. Coffee, sweet, fruity, flourish and starchy in taste. Coffee in aftertaste. Way too sweet, but covers alcohol well. One of the weirdest beer I’ve ever drunk. Made me go wow and wtf at the same time in same word. So it was more like wowtf!

35,5 cl can @ home
Aroma is odd and a bit musty with apricot, some sweet chocolate biscuits and truffles. Perhaps some coffee too? Flavour has cold coffee, truffles, chocolate. Like a cafe latte with too much sugar. The appearance and the taste are kind of confusing here – looks like a pale ale but tastes like a sweet (imperial) brown ale. Enjoyable, but drinking the whole can would take time – drinkability is not that great.
