Bottle. Pours copper/gold with a gusher white head. Nose is jalapeño, coffee grounds and sweet corn. Taste is similar but adds a yeasty note. Not picking up the amarillo from the dry hopping. The combination of disparate elements works on the nose but less so in terms of taste. Palate is nice and soft but the carb is lacking. One of the strangest beers I've ever drank. Wish I enjoyed it more.

It started foul, got quite enjoyable and then I went off it. How ironic when Iím watching England. So Iíll tell you about my social experiment. Iím listening to a lot of Henry Rollins and Minor Threat at the mo. I want to see how my mood changes. IíM VERY ANGRY ABOUT EVERYTHING ALL OF A SUDDEN. No effect at all yet.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Yellow with a white head. The aroma is full of jalapeŮo peppers and not much else. The flavor is similar. I get a ton of green pepper notes with a hint of coffee. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not sure where the pepper notes come from, but I quite enjoyed them. Still, I canít rate it too highly since it is a coffee beer with hardly any coffee character.

(11.2oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clear gold, fine white bubbles. Nose of pickled peppers, coffee, light hops. Taste of coffee, light peppers, bit of earth, tastes really nice and rich, like good coffee. Very carbonated, spicy, chicory.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
appearance: Amber hazy colored. Loads of foam. My glass and bottle actually overloaded :) Loses it quickly leaving some nice lacing.
smell: You can get the coffee straight away. Right up there in the nose, a weird bitter like coffee smell together with some bread like malts.
taste: Old coffee. Itís the first you get. Has a bit of citric bitter undertone. Some malts, yeast and hop flavors which remind me of bread and cereal, with a bit of a grapefruit like bitterness.
mouthfeel: High carbonation. Thin. Nothing special. Quite dry.
overall: Please "De Molen". Donít release crap beers like these. It may be a fun idea and i get what you wanted to achieve, but it just doesnít work! I canít imagine you wonít taste this before releasing it ;) A big contrast with some of the best beers in the world from this brewery. But this is really ruining it for me.

Looks hazy orange-gold in colour with a persistent and marshmallowy cream coloured head. Rather enticing creature to look at really. The pervasive and dominating aroma is coffee, dried, ground and vegetal with some burnt orange peel as well. This is evident in the flavour, but while the flavour suggests warmth and charriness, the mouthfeel is sherbety and cooling. My opinion is that this beer is a rather charming thing. Lovely.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2013 Jak zawsze w piwach browaru De Molen gigantyczna piana, ktůra w szklanicy zajmuje więcej miejsca niż sam płyn i do tego strasznie jest pozwijana na czubku jak lody włoskie. A sam smak: wyraźnie się wyczuwa kawę i lekko wędzone aromaty. Kolor rdzawy i zmętniony, a w zasadzie jasno brązowy. Chyba pierwszy raz napotkałem nuty kawowe w jasnym piwie. Dry Hopped na finiszu wyraźnie dominuje.
