Keg - OíCarrolls, Auckland. As Behemoth Wade Brown Ale at 5.5%; forgive me if Iíve entered it under the incorrect listing. A murky brown beer with a fine and loose though lasting and lacing soapy beige head. Good coffee in this, both on the nose and palate, though mostly present in terms of the later. A light dose of nutty malts and also a delicate vanilla-y sweetness in the mid to end. Some juicy mid-fruits coming through. Not overly bitter but good length and definition to the roast and coffee. Medium-ish body, soft carbonation and an enduring bittersweet finish. Well balanced between the coffee and malts so as to not let the coffee character dominate. Yeah, I could happily sink a few of these. Itís got character but isnít in-your-face intense with the coffee making it damn sessionable.

Cask handpull at Rogue & Vagabond in Wellington. Hazy amber brown color, fluffy beige head. Aroma of nutella on toast. Taste is cocoa and toast. Tasty. Light body.

Hazy deep mahogany in colour with very little head, but what is there is greyish-off white. Iíll go on a limb as say this isnít the best looking beer. However, Yeastie Boys donít do bad beer and a short sniff of this beer reveals freshly ground coffee and dark chocolate. It smells similar to Mikkeller Texas Ranger but for the Jalapeno peppers. This is a smell that I rather like. A taste reveals just the same sort of flavours with silky sweetness. I rather like my learned friendís analogy of five coffees and a sugar. I have to say though, Iím not enormously enamoured of this beer, probably irrespective of further conditioning.

Dark brown/black in colour with toffee coloured head. Big coffee aroma. Is like a short black with 5 sugars. Big coffee bitterness. Pleasant but not one that shout from the roof about.

Deep black brown with little to no head. Huge earthy roast coffee nose. Big, full body, a lovely creamy palate, medium carbonation, with a hint of sweet malt in the taste, along with coffee, coffee and more coffee. Finish is long and moderately bitter, with a bit more coffee for good measure. Very nice indeed.
