Drank on tap at Kufle I Kapsle, Warsaw. Not very gassy, dark brown with a delicious coffee aroma. Tastes less of coffee than it smells, but good solid brown ale.

Brown czy black? Wygląda i smakuje jak coffee stout. Nie powiem, pijalne, ale dystynktywne cechy stylu utonęły w kawie.

Tognetta (951) - So Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 9, 2017
Totalmente negra, turva, espuma marrom claro de mdia formao e persistncia. Aroma trs bastante caf, baunilha, seco. Corpo mdio/denso e mdia carbonatao. Paladar persistente, com o tempo vai tendendo mais para o caf verde, leve acidez. uma boa cerveja mas prefiro o caf mais torrado e intenso, o corpo atendeu espectativa.

Can picked up at FWB Beach Liquor after struggling to figure out if Ive had it or not before. Pours out a dark brown with a nice foamy, brown head. Pretty big aroma of sweet malt and coffee plus some spice from the chicory. Big coffee flavor with an almost creamy mouthfeel. Pretty dang nice, especially for a brown ale.

jjsint (2924) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2017
Draught from Alus Celle, Rīga. Dark brown, opaque, flat. Aroma dominated by bitter coffee and tobacco leaves. Taste is very sweet, with an over-sugared cortadito at the helm. Long brown sugar finish. Oily flat body, which loses some marks, but overall a brilliant beer and a thrill to get it in Europe.

neongolden (1544) - Linkping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2017
(Tap sample @ CBC 2016 Green Session, Copenhagen) Clear dark brown pour with a small off white head. Aroma of roast coffee with some slightly green character, toasted grains, sweetish malt, vanilla. Flavour has some rather sweet but slightly thin caramel malt, toasty roast, ample coffee bean, green pepper, vanilla, light hop bitterness, kind of nutty. A thin feeling in both flavour and mouthfeel. Didnt really do much for me at all.

Vells (1808) - Rīga, LATVIA - MAR 16, 2017
Very nice smooth coffee, vanilla, some kvass like bread, some bio toilet, but not in bad way. Powdery. Moderate to light sweetness, light sourness. Lovely and balanced.

As a lover of both coffee and beer, I do not like any other coffee flavored beers that I try. This CC staple is a notable exception. Its just so well balanced that the flavors actually work. This is the coffee beer that all others should aspire to be. With that said its ruined me for any beer that claims to have "hints" or "notes" of coffee because its just that much better. Your palate is not wrecked with bitter finish its just a smooth ride without the "coffee flavor" headache
