3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Got this one as I am just as addicted to coffee as I am to beer. However, I found this beer to smell and taste very much like an IPA with nice hop notes and full malt profile, but the coffee was extremely subtle. I was relatively disappointed by this as well as the murky appearance of the brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap@Cafe Langerbro, Copenhagen – dark amber coloured pour with medium off-white head. Aroma and taste is a sweet malty and prominent hoppy, some subtle and well-judged coffee in there (not overpowering), just right, some nuances of dried fruit, very nice smooth mouthfeel, was sceptical but all in a very enjoyable brew this.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Moderate malt notes of roasted, nutty and faint mild coffee, moderate to heavy pine resin for the hops, light soap for the yeast with a mix of dried fruit in the background. Head is large, frothy, light beige with excellent crusty lacing and is fully lasting. Color is murky, then muddy on the last pour, medium orangey brown. Flavor starts slightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is medium, a little slick with a lively to fizzy carbonation. Nice explosive IPA, if there is any coffee in here it’s way in the background.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by Tmoney99 (2011 notes). Pours a hazy amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, sticky citrus, earthy hops, coffee is very mild on the nose but stronger in the flavor, some floral notes as well. I am still trying to decide how I feel about coffee IPAs, but this seems fairly well done.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
tap @ mikkeller and friends (only the bottled version is retired) . Mellow taste of coffee grounds and citrus with a hoppy bitter aftertaste. Weird combination but not unplesant, although i don’t think i will try this again.

2nd October 2011
Cloudy brown beer with a massive pale tan - cream coloured head. Light dry palate. Mellow creamy coffee with mild lactose. Mild hops - tiny bit of orange. Semi dry finish. Nicely done - mellow but flavoursome coffee and hops. Does what it says on the tin.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance is amber brown and hazy, foam is little. Aroma has roast, salty licorice, but little skanky. Taste has a lot of coffee and skanky, I didn’t feel the taste of the hops. Palate is medium. Overall I don’t understand why coffee and IPA are put together. Not in my taste at all.
