3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a snifter. ABV 7%. One of the most metal labels I’ve seen.
Deep red ruby to red brown colour on the body, clear, with a huge light beige head on top. Very thick, with great retention. Spots of lacong around the glass.
Aroma of herbs, leaves, grounded used coffee, mould.
Taste of leaves, cold coffee of low quality, moist grains. A lemon leaves-like light bitterness on the aftertaste.
Medium body, soft carbonation, quite dry palate.
Weird beer, still drinkable though.

definitely has the bang of cold coffee, could use some backbone and flavor otherwise though.

Bit of strange one. Definitely get some coffee but it’s a bit thin and just kind of odd.

this is one weird beer, it taste like coffee without any of the bitterness that goes with it because it is masked with the sweetness that would typically reside in a dopplebock

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. gusher erupts a dark copper brown with a large foam. Aroma is quality coffee with light cocoa and toffee. Tastes of caramel, strong coffee, dark chocolate and some light dry grass. Medium body is smooth with a low level of carbonation and well balanced.

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Brusin’ Ales. Pours brown with 2 inches of khaki foam. Leaves a shitload of lacing. Smells like brewed coffee on the nose. Tastes a lot like coffee on the tongue. Finishes fairly clean. Better than I thought it would be.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2015 12 oz bottle served in a lager glass.
Pours clear copper-brown with a massive, foamy bone head. It took several pours and some patience to get the whole bottle into the glass.
Unappealing odor, characterized by wet earth, used coffee grinds, and grains. This is followed by a nearly OK flavor.
Feel: smooth medium body with a bubbly feel.
O: likely a contaminated bottle; for such ever from Dark Horse.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Huge creamy tan head. Hazy copper color. Lots of coffee and booze in the aroma and taste. Not bad but would not be my choice over a stout or porter for a coffee flavored beer.

Appearance: Mildly hazy amber-copper body with a foamy light tan head.
Aroma: Big coffee with a malty fruity backing with hints of bread and caramel.
Taste: Prominent coffee with a mildly malty and fruity backing.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: Very nice and enjoyable, I’d be thrilled if this were a coffee Troegenator though.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ BBF 2014. Reddish brown beer with a creamy, beige head. Aroma is suprisingly fresh with malts and coffee. Flavour is sweetish, malts, coffee and nicely warming alcohol in the end. Soft mouthfeel but not flat at all.
