Coffee, caramel malt and and belgian spices. Unfortunately the coffee and the belgian flavors in this one didnt mix. I appreciate some experimentation from craft breweries but this is another dud from 2 bros. Pipeworks can crank out an experimental beer every week and knocks it out of the park 75% of the time. 2 Bros puts out a one off bomber 2 or 3 times a year and usually comes up short. Unacceptable.

Bottle @ Richard’s tasting. Amber pour with a white head. Bland aroma. Just some sweet malt/caramel. A bit of grass, metal, and toast. Hints of citrus. Meh. Flavor is sweet caramel, grass, and toast. Metal, citrus peel, and a light acidity. No coffee is noticeable.

651mL. Clear, deep orange. Bubbles. Not real head formation. Nose is sweet, sticky candy. Taste is sticky orange, lemon tea, a bit bland with lemon acid. Huh. Drinkable, but no coffee. Not really BdG missing the dense malty backbone and dark bread.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle and served in tulip: pours a deep amber hue with a lasting frothy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of grassy and herbal hops, some earthiness from the yeast, touch of green apple ester and just a bit of roasted coffee vapours. The taste is mildly grainy and sweet , light bitterness and even lighter coffee notes (if any to speak of) along with some earthy and flowery character. The mouthfeel is smooth and lively but not very crisp, sort of sits there. A bit of a letdown for I fully anticipated a more coffee forward brew. It is alright enough I guess, just not my cup of joe.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle French Press 8/1613 (Binny’s Naperville)-40° in Tulip-Pours bronze with a small covering for a head. Aroma of coffee, caramel, malt, and toffee. Taste of the same with a little coffee coming thru. This medium bodied brew is well blended and the coffee is not very dominating. Nice job.
