an American strong ale at 6%, huh?
beer #6700! taste and aroma are predominantly coffee in this dark amber brew. very pleasant, especially in the nose. body is average but smooth. back end of the palate shows just enough hop bitterness to be interesting.

Surprised by the low ratings on this one. This is an interesting coffee beer. Not a stout. Not a porter. Some sort of ale. But, a lot of coffee going on. Enjoyable.

There’s definitely some coffee involved in this one. That’s all you get in the smell, and a good part of the taste too. It’s nice to have a coffee beer that’s not a stout or porter. Pretty good.

(en fût au Neighborhood): Si le but était de faire une ale pour coopérer avec les saveurs du café sans lui voler d’attention, c’est réussi. L’agencement surprend au départ mais les petites céréales miellées et farineuses s’effacent doucement pour laisser place au café très pointu. La bière finit par jouer dans notre tête et son appréciation se décuple au fur et à mesure que la pinte se vide. Simple et surprenant.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
~Strong earthy woody aroma with coffee, cinnamon, and other complex spice aroma I cant explain.
~Pours a murky dark brownish amber color with quickly disappearing airy head. Seems to be carbonated incorrectly.
~Earthy woody flavor, light burnt characteristics with coffee.
~Medium bodied, high CO2, lingering earthy finish.
~This is an enjoyable beer. Interesting blend of spices. Just seems poorly executed for some reason.

I like it, but the coffee flavor overpowers everything else. The tangy, citrus hop flavor is an afterthought behind the flavor of the morning beverage. Not bad, but definitely made with the coffee enthusiast in mind.

Bottle. Rich amber beer with a dark cream head, Grapefruit and coffee aroma. Grapefruit and pine flavor with light coffee. Medium bodied. Grapefruit and pine linger with light malt and light coffee. Much less coffee impact than the other version.

Good aroma. 1/2" head. The coffee is a bit to overpowering. I would have liked to see the coffee being used in a porter or any stronger beer. Overall a good beer though.

Looks amazing. A finger and half of head on a hazy, medium straw colored body.
The aroma is lots of roasted coffee beans and a touch of grain behind it. Lots of coffee.
The taste is okay. Not bad, a little coffee with some maltiness. The coffee adds the bitter.
The texture is great though. Super soft with low to moderate carbonation. Impressive.
Not a beer to pass up.

Bottle with Dodgrblu. Aroma and flavor of roasted, earthy Kenyan coffee. If it wasn’t carbonated, I would’ve sworn it was Peets. Crazy beer doppelgänger here. Fair beer overall.
