3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home, from the De Molen beer shop, 01/10/13.
Hazed golden amber with a good sized off white head formed of bubbles.
Nose is vegetal, damp cornfield, with a roast coffee mist covering the field.
Taste is light roast, toasty malts, coffee beans, light peppery spice.
Medium bodied, slightly prickly carbonation.
Interesting stuff ... I certainly don’t dislike it, it’s a drinkable enough affair although I doubt I’d seek it out again!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle). Amazingly spicy and peppery aroma with hints of green pepper and chili pepper. The taste is fresh, peppery and strange! It tastes chili but without the heat, and coffee but without the "coffee", ie the roasting is missing. A funny beer but you do not drink a lot of it!

Pours a golden slightly clear beer with a good white head. Smells a bit woody. Nuts and burn. A bit smoked. Tastes also smoked. Way to fizzy carbo. Watery and thin body.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle. Pours orange (brown tones) with a huge white frothy head. Both aroma and taste are a blend of citrus and coffee notes, quite as expected. Well balanced overall, thin regarding the mouthfeel though. Carbonation is a bit to high on the other hand. Dry palate. Basically a coffee IPA, but not a top one.
