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.

16 oz. can - thanks BVC; hazy dark brown with thin, tan head; pure coffee grounds aromas more like cheap coffee, but pure and clean; slightly sweet and well balanced; served super cold, which I think was the good way to go for this; coffee, toffee and some brown sugar; very nice

Dark coffee brown, go figure. Coffee flavor on the front and back, and hard to taste the beer underneath. Surly turns out much much better, but if coffee is your thing, then you’ll probably love this for breakfast.

Bottle thanks to Barrythebear (BA)!
Chestnut with a moderate beige head. Nose of ashy coffee, the brown ale practically overwhelmed here and adding slight nuance at the edges in robust grain and slight sweetness. Flavor is also coffee, lightly bitter but with some milk chocolate lingering through to the somewhat empty finish. Pretty good balance between the coffee and the malt, but don’t expect anything more than that.

Canned, thanks Baggio! Chocolate brown, small head. Aroma of coffee and toffee. Medium sweet and medium bodied with firm malt. The cooffee flavor is highly upfront and dominant, making it rather one-dimensional. Fortunately I happen to like coffee so this beer right down my alley.

16 oz can brought back from Minnesota by my dear friend Kathy. Consumed tonight in honor of Ted Kennedy, a surly man who enjoyed going on a bender...zing! Poured cola brown with a moderate tan head that faded quickly. Aroma is pretty much all coffee with a light bit of chocolate involved. Flavor is basically just cold coffee with some metallic notes and a light bit of chocolate as it warms. Definitely more flavorful the warmer it gets though.

16oz can thanks to photomike. Dark brown with a small, creamy head. The aroma is a pleasant mix of chocolate-toasty grain and plenty of smoothly roasted coffee. The flavor is pretty much iced coffee with a hint of acidity and medium bitterness balanced by some sweet toasty and chocolatey malt, all finishing with a light herbal hop bite. The body is on the light side, which I was a little let down with at first, but came to enhance the whole coffee presentation in the end. I really think that this is coffee done right in a beer, without to much sweet and roasted malt to get in the way and clash with it. Cheers to Surly for not just throwing coffee into another stout.

Can courtesy photomike. Pours a clear ruby brownish copper with a nice light tan head. Not exactly a ’brown’ brown ale. Aroma is straight up coffee grounds. I wish I could say more but that’s pretty much it. Flavor is iced coffee with half and half. Slightly green coffee beans with light acidity and moderate astringency. Body and mouthfeel are otherwise fine, and if you like coffee beer, this is pretty much the definition of it.
