COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is our regular Bender beer with Guatemalan coffee, and roasted locally at Coffee & Tea Limited in Linden Hills. Coldpress coffee aromas, intense coffee flavors balanced by the oats in the malt bill, resulting in a cappuccino-like creaminess.

From a tall boy to a glass...pours rich brown with minimal head. Nose and initial taste is COFFEE, COFFEE, and a tad bit more Coffee...hard to this flavorful beer a brown ale...which are renown for being Stout’s and even Porter’s blah relative. Love it....another great part of winter!

On tap at Simone’s. Nice chocolate colored head, dark coke colored body. Really nice nose, coffee with smoke and liquor. Great flavor, in line with the nose. Could use a little more body on the palate. Overall, very good. Would drink again.

Nephilium (1680) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 22, 2015
Mild coffee aroma, with a hint of chocolate malt. Pours a cloudy dark brown with a full light tan head. Not really as much coffee flavor as I was expecting, it comes through just a bit at the finish. There’s a touch of sweet malt, then mild coffee, fading to a light roast finish. Medium bodied, so it’s easy to drink. I prefer my coffee beers with a bit more coffee in them.

Saeglopur (1665) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - OCT 11, 2015
500 ml canned on 07/02/15, from Mikkeller Webshop.
Dark brown, a bit copperish body, with a medium, creamy, lacing, dark beige head.
Aroma with a lot of distinctive coffee beans, espresso, cocoa, dark chocolate, subtle dark fruits.
Taste follows this, coffee-forward, with the typical Brown Ale notes far in the background.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a quite lively carbonation.
Finishes dry, roasty, mainly with coffee.

Very nice. Lovely, direct coffee notes, otherwise not so much else tasteable. Drinks pretty easy, with a pleasant dryness. Overall quite one-dimensional and not among my favourite Brown Ales, but still enjoyable stuff for coffee lovers like me.
