COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This collaboration has been ‘brewing’ for quite some time. Indeed Brewing Company partnered with their neighbors at Dogwood Coffee to create Burr Grinder “Beer Coffee”. After searching for the perfect coffee, 90-pounds of Guatemalan Finca Rosma was steeped in the brew kettle before we topped-off the finished beer with 54-gallons of cold press. Delivering an intense coffee punch while preserving the delicate aromas of the complex beans, Burr Grinder will have you wondering whether you’re a beer geek or a coffee geek.

Share courtesy of our tasting host, douglas88. It poured up with a clear deep copper body supporting an off white head of foam. The aroma offers up smooth nutty coffee roastiness. If I close my eyes and smell it seems just like a cup of coffee. The taste has a medium roast coffee note mixing with faint chili pepper that delivers zero heat. Pretty nice cup o joe.

Great coffee beer. I think they used a local NE Minneapolis coffee shop for the coffee. Great on the palate. Coffee and dark stout flavors.

Bottle poured a rich brown color with a thick chewy off white head that held on very well. Aroma has dark coffee, brown malt, mild caramel, and a slight hit of dark sweet fruit. Mouth feel is medium light with average carbonation. Flavor again leads with coffee, almost no bitterness, dark rich malts, and a smooth finish. Incredibly clean coffee and the lack of bitterness for the strength is amazing!

Don’t mind the aroma as much as the taste, which is similar to my thoughts on coffee. Aroma is roast coffee. Taste is dark roast coffee with just a hint of sweet malt. Too far down the coffee spectrum for me.

Poured from a bomber. Aroma is huge coffee. Flavors are coffee and caramel. Very nice for a straight up coffee beer. Touché indeed!

Nsanders (429) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 3, 2014
750 mL. Rusty color with a thin khaki head. Dark roasted coffee, roasted malts, a little musty, and grain. Taste has a malty sweetness with a bitter coffee finish. Body is medium with a bubbly feel. Good integration of coffee, but there were some weird flavors in the background.

Dark brown with a small head. Light fresh roasted coffee aroma with some caramel. Big coffee flavor. Mild roast, caramel, buttery malt, and bread.

Pours a dark brown with rapidly-dissipating head. Aroma of roast coffee. Flavor is primarily dark roast coffee, with a bit of spiciness, and some sweet malt underneath. Very smooth and tasty.

750 ml bottle. Pours a deep brown color with some reddish hints with a medium light beige head. A big nose of coffee and peppers. The flavor is vanilla, earthy, dusty/dry, huge roasted coffee, light pepper and more vanilla. Good.
