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.

9/28/09 notes: poured at GABF, sampled three times. Pours dark brown. Nose is strong bold coffee, brown sugar and toasted malt. Flavor comes off only half as strong as the nose, and sweeter. A bit light through the middle. Good bittersweet, almost nutty finish. Body is medium-light, almost creamy.

Some coffee and chocolate in the arouma but far more coffee than anything, the flavor is strong black coffee , with lots of bitterness both from the coffee and seemingly from hops. There are some more subtle flavors as well some nuttiness and some chocolate, but not too much chocolate mind you, this is all about the coffee... and itís damn good coffee too.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 24, 2009
Can at Tampa tasting. Poured a dark brown with a thin tan head. Nose is spent coffee grounds and a little ash. Medium bodied with a slightly creamy mouth feel and weak carbonation. Flavor is slightly acidic with strong coffee notes and a touch of nuttiness. Finished with a fair amount of hops bitterness. Somewhat one dimensional but I enjoyed it. Good coffee beer.

Thanks again to Dansting for this one. 16oz can served in a shaker pint. Poured a clear dark reddish brown with a finger of light tan head. Nice aroma of coffee and cocoa. Coffee flavor was restrained and not over the top like a lot of coffee beers. The coffee didnít add to the bitterness, which I find distracting. Decent amount of hop bitterness. Chocolate malt. Dry finish from hops as well as lingering malt. One of the better coffee beers IMO.

On tap at the Map Room. This dark brown beer poured with a thin tan head and a strong coffee aroma. There is a rich coffee flavor with some treacle and carbonation and a long dry finish.

Poured from a can thanks to danielcurtis81 on his wedding week. Pours dark brown with red edges and minimal light beige head. Nose is a mix of coffee, dark malt, and more hops than expected. Taste is sharp, spicy, bitter hop, dark malt, and black coffee. Very good brew, an odd mix of flavor, but itís unique and I like that.

This growler of brew from a DLD beer festival poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were and left behind a transparent uncarbonated dark brown colored body. The mild aroma was brown malt and coffee. The thin mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of brown malt coffee and was softly acidic. Iíd like to try this one again.

Brown color with a bright umber glimmer when held to the light. Foamy light tan head. Dark chocolate and coffee aromas. Has a real pure coffee scent. Very smooth feel with just a little zip. Just a hint of toasted malt in the front. Light coffee creeps in from there. Seems simple, but to make a coffee brew that has just a hint of malt and then is pretty much all about the coffee is a nice feat. A nice coffee brew that isnít over the top in roasted malt and alcohol. I like it. I really need more of this for the early football games this fall.
