4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Can at Savor. If I was blindfolded and someone handed this to me, I might think I was poured a cup of coffee. This beer had an unmistakable coffee aroma, along with chocolate and deep roasted malt. Poured pitch black. Flavor was a follow through from the aroma. This is a special beer to savor!

Sample at CBC 2014. Poured a hazy dark brown with a big frothy light tan head. The aroma is big coffee earthy mineral. The flavour is medium bitter with a light earthy hop spice bitter palate. Medium to light bodied with average carbonation.
