Thanks to the Minnesota Homebrewing Association for the beer at the AHA conference. Pours near black with purple hue, off white head, and no lacing. Aroma is huge coffee aroma...just like I stuck my head in a bag of foldgers coffee grounds. Taste is the same with some hazelnut, roasted malts, raisins, and a hint of strawberries.

HUGE coffee aroma. Really good roast and some chocolate shine as well. Pours a dark translucent black with little head retention. Taste is bright coffee up front and leads into more malt forward porter territory. One of the best coffee beers I’ve ever had. Great stuff.

On tap at the POPE for beer week. Aroma is pure coffee. Pours deep brown with a very small brown head. Taste is coffee, oreo cookies, malt, and a roasty coffee finish. This is just a perfect example of beer tasting like coffee. Mouthfeel is not too thick so this is easy to drink. Nice.

Can from a bottle shop in Copenhagen. It has that aroma that reminds me of chili but that is actually coffee, and also a dark malty backbone. Similar taste. I had the regular bender before this and this coffee version was slightly better and I don’t even drink coffee.

Hazy brown body with a medium off-white head. Loads of coffee with some smokiness in it. Sweet caramel malt. Almost like iced coffee or something similar. Very interesting and very good.

Dark brown pour with a white head and lacing. Aroma is like opening a bag of fresh ground coffee. The taste is black coffee, cashews, light caramel and hops. Thin body but tasty. Good session brew.

Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of coffee and sweet caramel malts. Mostly sweet to start and a bit bitter at the end. I could honestly drink one of these each day with breakfast.
