Flaska från ölkonsortiet . Härlig arom av kaffe och tropiska frukter. Mörk bärnstensfärg med gult skum som varar hur länge som helst. Viss humlig fruktighet men kaffet dominerar och döljer malten. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

J_man (769) - Tustin, California, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Definite coffee/husky aroma along with fruity notes from a slightly hazy golden/amber body with a foamy and long lasting white head. Sweet, overripe fruit in the taste followed by a light coffee acridness and pungent, earthy hops. The flavor then mellows out a bit and becomes more tea-like. A bit of milk and bittersweet chocolate follow this. Everything then seems to fade except for a pithy,earthy bitterness that sticks to the tongue and keeps growing. I fear that I held on to this beer too long and it was probably much better and more interesting a few years ago when I purchased it.

MPA (860) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle (BBf 08.12.12). Beautiful dark, reddish amber with a large beige head. Aroma of dates, figs, and raisins. Hints of cocoa and coffee too. Flavour is sweet and malty with notes of caramel, and dried fruits. Coffee is also present, though subtle and mixed in with finish leftovers of bitterness. Aftertaste is very much about the coffee. Even though this has gone beyond its best before date, this is still a very great beer. I just wish I had a previous rating lying somewhere, but my backlog is spread over a ton of notes lying around in boxes, and I’m not sure I’ve rated it before. Oh, well....someday maybe.

BrunoSanchez (164) - Fermo, ITALY - NOV 17, 2014
IPA dal colore ambrato con schiuma pannosa molto consistente. Al naso note resinose e torrefatto. In bocca bilanciata verso l’amarezza e corpo medio alto. Il sapore caramellato e resinoso finisce con tanto sapore di caffè e amarezza intensa. Si tratta di una strana birra ma fatta molto bene. Consigliata a chi cerca una IPA diversa!

750 ml Bottle shared by Eric S., thanks buddy! Color is a hazy gold with some spotty head retention. This brew started off with some promise. The coffee bean aroma is rich and intoxicating. Light traces of grassy hops.

The body is medium with a yeast element. Coffee and hops.... Um, doesn’t really mesh well together... Good coffee bean flavor but bitterness from hops throws it off. Tastes almost like the coffee bean turned bitter and sour. Although it most certainly hasn’t. Sorry this just doesn’t work at all for me and I love coffee brews, no thanks.

radiomgb (2460) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
Hazy copper-amber, large long lasting off-white head, good lacing. Aroma is of hops, herbal, tea, some roast, caramel. Flavour has the coffee coming through, herbal and some spice, hoppy. Herbal mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long with coffee and hops. Weird stuff, not much coffee in the aroma but a fair amount in the flavour. Alright.

Nice copper pout with a cream colored head. Nose of smooth coffee and citrus hops. Good balance n the flavor between malt sweetness, hop bitterness and very mellow coffee influence.

Bottle shared at the RBESG 2014, grand tasting 09/08/2014. Hazed orange / cara,e; coloured pour with a small halo white head. Aroma is coffee beans, veg pepper, mineral, maybe some spicy piney hop but it is pretty faint. Flavour is smooth caramel, coffee bean, piney hop. Palate is medium carbonation, quite sweet malty backbone. OK.

A very interesting beer, haven't had anything like it before. Pours a bright cloudy orange with a thick tan head. Smells of coffee and hops. Taste is very creamy, with the hops and coffee balancing well together. Bitter finish, but more coffee bitter then California IPA bitter. Weird and good. Had on tap at the Trappist.

"murky amber orange pour, off white head. colder, the aroma is more sweet malts and hops and very little coffee. First sip is bitter up frint, especially grapefruit. Ample malts, and a long lasting bittersweet coffee finish that would end up being my favorite thing about this beer. More balanced aroma as it warms, though i started cool (not cold). REALLY cool when the coffee and hops come out in equal measure. It doesn’t hurt that this would be a decent IPA apart from the coffee either. The only bad part? A bit steep..."
