COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is our regular Bender beer with a cold-press coffee-brewing process. We steep 20 gallons at a time, so this beer will pop up at Tours, beer fests and special tappings. The coffee is roasted locally at Coffee & Tea Limited in Linden Hills.

16 oz. can shared by goldtwins. Pours a clear brown with a moderate off-white head. The aroma is dominated by fresh coffee. Any of the aromatic qualities of Bender have been wiped out by the coffee. Fortunately, I like coffee so this beer works for me. The coffee in the flavor does not come across as fresh as in the aroma, and some of the traits from Bender sneak in such as some chocolate and pine. Bitter coffee finish. Enjoyable.

This is the best smelling coffee beer I’ve ever laid upon my olfactory sense. Strong coffee flavor. Perfect aroma. Flavors are strong malts, coffee and a nice toast. Flavor is very good. This is a great brown ale. One of my favorites.

danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 28, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2009 Pint can via trade with Scoobydank. Pours a cloudy deep chestnut brown with a small cream white lacing head. Nose is of coffee, nuts, and malt. Nice mild coffee flavors, a strong nut flavor as well. Mouth is medium bodied and a little sticky. Very flavorful 5% beer! Reminds me a bit of the Nestea instant mix Grandma use to make, yum!

yobdoog (1888) - Woodridge NY, New York, USA - MAR 27, 2009
Samples from can and growler. Both similar and heavy on the coffee and seemed to have lost any nut or biscuit flavors. Some burnt toast makes this unenjoyable for me.

very strong aroma. very dark color. very bold taste. a great breakfast beer. much like the regular bender, its darker, but not very stout taste is good for a meal..or meal substitute, but this one has coffee in it!
