Pours a very dark brown with beautiful lacing. Aromas of sour coffee, pine, roasted malts and vanilla. Taste is chocolate, espresso, and roasted malts. Wonderful cross IPA and coffee stout. Beautiful!

Bottle from Kitsilano Liquor, Vancouver; bb 04/12/18, batch 440
Black color with generous brownish head. The aroma of fruity, perfumy beer is perceived as soon as the cap is removed, so typical of these Danish contract brewed beers: some coffee and roasted malt. Robust but lean body, if thicker it would be an Imperial Stout; the flavor profile starts with an Imperial Stout, strong roasted malt, some coffee, a bit salty, hints of liquorice; and then a powerful hopping, very resiny, but that also offers fruity sides; moderate residual sweetness. Ends with traces of alcohol, warming.
Solid, flowery. Very good.

Vinx (63) - ITALY - JUL 6, 2014
Very complex aroma of english hops and, obviously, coffee, nut and dark chocolate. You can see its two souls well distinct each other: the IPA hoppy herbal resiny one and the "stouty" one which, for some reason, go together so well. A good attenuation makes this beer so drinkable though its alcohol content and its mellow velvety texture. Every single sip is different from the following one: it’s an american stout, it’s an IPA, it’s an american stout, it’s an IPA and so on... The aftertaste is that of an imperial stout: a bit astringent, some caramel and long lasting. Guys, this beer is a little masterpiece! It’s so simple using pounds and pounds of hop for an IPA, what’s hard is finding the right balance between hops and malts and To Øl has found a perfect unassailable formula. It’s a 10/10 or thereabouts.

This works best a little warmer for me. Initial coffee heads towards funky hops and heaps of coffee and boozy warmth in the background. Some woodiness. Cola. Great frisky palate. Moving into chocolate and dry hop burn. Up there with Wookie Jack.

Ferris (4208) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle - Coffee and pine hops, with a ton of roast. Jet black with a rich brown head. Coffee, dark malts and a hoppy bitterness. There is a ton of huge flavors that should conflict, but they have managed something that lets them all shine. Well done.

Cool odd duck. Long-lasting head, lots of lace. Aroma is malty and perfumey. Slight hint of the coffee in the aroma. Coffee comes out in the flavor. Great body. A few small off flavors in the e aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gerbeer (1784) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 25, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with full tan head. Aromas of sour coffee, pine, roasted malts and vanilla. Flavors of pine, limes, chocolate, espresso, and roasted malts. Maybe some saltiness or just getting this from the name? Lively carbonation and lingering bitter finish. Great cross IPA and coffee stout.

Lasting frothy off yellow head atop an opaque black body. Nose of burnt coffee, soya sauce and bitter hops. Flavour is a mouthful - full bodied, deep coffee and pine hops, mild vanilla and milky yet bitter finish. Very enjoyable. Purchased at Metro Liquor University Heights for $5.50/330ml bottle.
