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.

Wow, coffee aroma burst out when I popped the can open. Dark brown color reminiscent of coffee (duh). Taste is cold/iced coffee in a big, big way. Is there beer in here? Yep, some malt is in the background, and a little bit of hops. If you love coffee and you love beer, you have to try this one for the experience. I feel like I just drank a cup of coffee, not a 16 oz can of beer. Of the "unique and unusual" beers I’ve tried, this one is one of the best.

Can. Clear, dark red brown, tiny offwhite head. Sweet coffee aroma, hints of chocolate. Flavour has freshly brewed coffee, notes of roasted malt, some kind of coffee-candy I once had... Sweetish with ok bitterness. Well, not bad but the candy-coffee-like flavour disturbs me.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2015 Can - Thanks Martin! Aroma is heavy on coffee, toffee, roasted nuts and and sweet candy-like aroma. Taste is bitter, heavy on the coffee (too heavy?), dry, roasted malts and a bitter finish. I hate brown ale, this didn't change my mind.

McNeillR (1834) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 2, 2015
Murky medium brown with a soft ringed head and no discernable lacing. Nose is bright with the wrench of stale cafetiere, kinda nutty and mostly cocoa choc chalkiness. Initial taste is smooth and lean with the bean. Rich damp bark woodiness comes billowing through and a fleshy bitterness. Palate is a massage of maltiness with a wee carbed heel kick. Chewy orangey choc finish and a decent wrench of a rinsed out coffee mug. Cold press all the way, would like to stack this against the original. Keg, Hanging Bat, post Rainbow Daying

Can. Beautiful brown. Coffee aroma. Tastes almost like one of those small cans of iced doubleshot espressos. Pecan and acidic aftertaste. Delicious. It would be interesting if they did variants of this with different types of coffee. Thx Maltser85.

haukur (1474) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - SEP 18, 2015
Brown with an off white head. LOADS of coffee in the aroma, ice coffee. Palate is all about coffee, some slight hint of roast, hops, nice bitterness in the finish that balances the coffee. One of the best brown ales in the world.

A-like a root beer with head S-coffee, fresh roasted. T-so much like an iced coffee that it fit the brewers description perfectly. It put a smile on my face. O-the only thing that holds this beer back is that it taste more like iced coffee than beer. But it is still amazing
