COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Two local companies, Beau’s All Natural Brewing and Bridgehead Coffee, have collaborated to create a special beer to help Ottawans keep warm during Winterlude this year. “WinterBrewed” is a strong amber ale brewed by Beau’s, infused with an organic coffee selected by Bridgehead.

The beer selected for the blend holds its own as well: a strong ale with a rich amber colour, which features toasty, biscuity notes from the malt, and a herbal, slightly fruity contribution from the hops.

Pours a slightly hazy brownish amber with a foamy white head that dissipates quickly but leaves nice spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel, nuts, toast, coffee and light sweet toffee. Taste is coffee, sweet caramel, toast, biscuit and a light floral hop flavor. Complex and smooth with no harshness... A lovely winter sipper that uses coffee we’ll which isn’t easy to do.

Bottle - Spice and cocoa. Deep dark amber with a rich beige head. Toast, roast and spice with a little bite in the finish. Odd, but quite nice.

Heavy hoppy aroma with hints of citrus, a light coudy appearance with a nice even frothy head, nice hop taste with a easy finish. Was a good beer

Golden colour, coffee way forward. It's like the best iced coffee beer lovers could hope for. Just the right amount of bitterness. The perfect after dinner beer.

Hell look if that ain’t that hophead Hippyhop down there right below me. This brew pours reclaimed barnboard varnish orange-brown with a beautiful cappuccino style foam cap. This is definitely coffee forward, fresh ground medium roast, against the backdrop of a decent amber. The coffee here is great & as a coffee fiend im impressed with the balance achieved here. Nice to see a brewer put coffee in something other than a stout. Enjoyed while baking a québécois Porc aux Pommes et a l’erable & listening to mid century tiki lounge christmas cocktail songs. Another interesting Beaus beer.

HippyHop (669) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
Pour is burnt orange with a creamy tan cap that sticks around and leaves some decent lacing. Nose is unsurprisingly dominated by a coffee aroma, but there was a surprising citrus/floral element that I wasn’t expecting. Taste is toasted grain, a bit of citrus, and a bitter finish with faint floral elements and lots of lingering coffee. Alcohol is virtually nonexistent, and weirdly It’s a touch watery, but this is a tasty, adventurous brew. As radiomgb noted it’s wonderfully bizarre (I think I stole his score, note for note, too).

600ml bottle from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Clear ruby in colour with a thin off-white head, light lacing. The aroma is of coffee, burnt malts. The flavour is of coffee, roasted malts, light hops. Finishes long with coffee, drying out. Wonderfully bizarre.
