3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
From can. Canned on 12/10/12. Pours deep brown with thick foam that does not recede much. Similar to a good stout. Totally unique aroma. Like coffee with cream, toast, and nuts. Just a but if hop aroma punches through. Taste is like bitter light roast coffee. The hop bitterness really lingers at the end. Mouth is thick and chewy. I was thinking I would like this better than the original since I'm a coffee fan, but I do not. Won't be drinking more than my 4 pack.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 oz can. Pours clear light ruby brown with a medium frothy light tan head that retains fairly well and leaves little lacing.
The aroma is sweet chocolate malt and roast coffee.
The flavor is a lot of roast with some sweet nutty chocolate malt and a lot of roast coffee. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a little thin.
Overall, a nice coffee beer.

Pretty great coffee, intense but not overwhelming coffee. Creamy body. Nice all around.

If you’ve seen the other reviews you’ll know that has a really strong coffee taste. Not in a bad way but pretty intense dark flavor. I like that it comes in pint cans. A couple of these are really nice with a meal or just sipping. I’m not a coffee drinker at all but this one is pretty tasty.

Intense coffee bomb. Not much else. Sone malt and light roast. Black pour with decent head and lacing. Ligh caramel in finish. Tap at Churchkey.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A- Sauteed vegetables, earthy coffee, roasty.
A- Dark brown color, dark liquid, beige head.
T- Coffee, bell peppers, earthy, slightly bitter.
P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, strong finish.
O- A pretty good brown ale. Wish the coffee would have been a sweeter type of coffee instead of a vegetal/earthy kind of coffee. Either was it was good, but maybe not the best.

Encore merci à Stéphane pour le partage de cette bière qui fait suite à la version originale de la Bender. Ohhhh que ça ne va pas bien... Encore le même look ordinaire. Nez de café froid, de cendrier, de vieux percolateur et de tuyaux de cafetière remplis d’huile de café mal lavé. Même histoire en bouche que la version originale: sèche mais sucrée, courte suite à une attaque franche de mauvais café. Les Bender sont dans le top 50. Ça ne va pas...

Wow. Just a ton of coffee here. Actually not so over the top, but you are rooting for other flavours around the press. Has a certain creaminess, especially in the finish.

Surly didn’t invent the coffee-infused Brown Ale, but I’ll damned if they haven’t brewed the best one I’ve tasted. Dark brown pour and tan suds. Huge, gorgeous cold-brewed coffee smells. Flavors of rich grains, coffee-style fruitiness, caramel, and creamy coffee tastes and textures like mocha/cappuccino. There’s also a bright, roasty sensation. This beer gave me a hard-on that’s unlikely to go down anytime soon.
