Draft @ DeMolen on November 17th visit. Holy hell, I could have sworn this beer had hot pepper type of jalapeño in it, that it until they told me it was the Op & Top beer with an added 40kgs of coffee. Couleur ambrée, col épais ocre. Arôme donne un léger parfum épicé, note de grains concassés, aspect pimenté, malt grillé léger et torréfié, le tout avec un bouquet agréable de houblon laissant ce profile d’épice. En bouche, un vrai petit délice, une route entre l’épicé et le torréfié, et j’aurai juré que cette bière contenait du piment, qui en effet est le résultat d’un dry-hopping et de l’ajout d’une belle qté de café. C’est léger, subtile et complexe à la fois, ressent un malt pale, caramel avec de belles notes grillées et de café le tout finissant sur une pointe d’épice et de houblon.

stefannilssons (1455) - SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2011
Det här var en märklig och en inte speciellt god upplevelse. Jag saknar en mustig kropp och efterbeskan är både skarp och kort. Dessutom upplever jag att smaken på ölen är spretig, som om den inte vet själv hur den ska smaka. Slutsat: Märklig.

visionthing (2625) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 16, 2011
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy golden with a white head. Roasted coffee with a nicely balanced bitterness. Coffee, coffee and coffee is the aroma I get from this beer, but I like coffee and I like this beer.

Bottle from Bier Koning. Solo hungover tasting in my hotel room! Hazy gold - amber beer. Residual white head. Light dry palate. Pale malt with coffee. The coffee is a little roasty and very slightly smoky. The pale malt is quite strong. Trace of orange hop. Finishes semi dry and crispy. A different take on the Pale Ale Coffee style by the use of an aggressive coffee addition.

I feel that this roasty taste is something they wished to do... A special effect after reading and a spicy taste at smell.

kappldav123 (4738) - GERMANY - NOV 8, 2011
Thanks to bierkoning for that one. Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass fine turbid, small head. Starts quite dry, fine hoppy, some lemon hints, some grapefruit. Finish still dry, modest bitter. Not bad.

Ktwse (1919) - SWEDEN - NOV 4, 2011
On tap. Cloudy light orange-amber with a small white head. Aroma has some sweetness but is dominated by hops: grapefruit, apricot, citrus, maybe some herbs. When it comes to taste it’s quite bitter, almost sour, with a very abrupt finish. Not very complex. Body is very light with noticeable fizzy carbonation.

Svesse (6045) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2011
(Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival, 8 Oct 2011) Hazy amber colour with lasting, off-white head. Herbal, fruity nose with notes of stinging nettles, unroasted coffee beans, hay and ensilage (fermented grass). Malty, herbal taste with grainy malt, coffee, citrus and a generous bitterness in a dry finish. Medium body. Interesting and quite weird, at first I thought it was spiced with nettles but after a while I realised it was coffee. Quite nice though.

Marsiblursi (2993) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2011
(Bottle) Pours Bach dark amber with a creamy off-white head. The aroma hols spicy, green bell pepper, jalapeño oil, parsley and roasted coffee beans up front. Clean hop profile and light dirty yeast alongside a tiny toasted malt touch. Not super complex but fantastic. Whisper of burned plastic. The flavour light sweet, light bitter and tiny acidic. Coffee, floral/citric hops and toast. The mouthfeel is clean and watery, yet quite smooth with a medium carbonation. Ageessive coffee and notable hops on tue finish. Light bodied.

Vignale (2005) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2011
Drucken på fat på Bishop i Malmö. Skulle likna den vid en lätt APA. Lätt kropp, frisk, bubblig munkänsla, gräsig, örtig smak, lite växtjuice, maskrosbeska som är ren och distinkt. Kaffet vet jag inte vart det tog vägen. Roligt öl.
