COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Two local companies, Beaus 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 Beaus, 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.

From the booth at le mondiale 2011. Amber pour with a light brown head. Aroma of cold coffee right off the bat. This is all coffee. Cold coffee, esspresso, fresh ground coffee beans, mani couldnt get my nose out of this, the best coffee aromaive ever had the pleasure to smell in a beer. The flavor was well....more coffee! Imagine that! There were some nice bready malts though too. The fnish of this beer reminded me of a strong german bock, flavoured with coffee. Awesome stuff!

Lonely-looking 600mL bottle from the LICBO. Pours a clear brownish amber with a large beige head. The aroma is insanely filled with coffee, and not synthetic coffee. Its like when you open a fresh bag of coffee beans or grounds, holy crap, and as someone who loves that aroma, I am into this. Mixed in is some citrusy elements which could actually be from the coffee if they used a lot of lighter roasted beans. Flavour hits with the coffee right away, with some mild malty sweetness following and then a bitter finish. This is the coffeeist coffee beer Ive ever had. Its bizarre but in a good way. As it warms I do get some tasty, biscuit malt quality in the finish that balances the dry coffee elements. Mild carbonation and a fuller feel, but no booze. The tag that came with it says this is actually an Amber Lager, adding yet another arguably pointless twist to a creative beer. I like the Bridgehead chain of cafs, and I mostly like Beaus, but I often find collaborative brews like this turn out mediocre at best, but this one lived up to expectations. This might actually be my favourite product Ive had from Beaus.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 5, 2015
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 well which isnt easy to do.

Tasted good, just odd to have coffee and beer together, would be excellent for the morning

Raistlin (327) - London, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2013
Really impressed with this beer. You will love it if you love coffee. It has a taste that is completely dominated by coffee. Its not sweet at all, has some bitterness just like black dark coffee would. Head is tasty and brown, but goes away quickly. It leaves a bit of a lingering taste in your mouth just like coffee would.

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.

lesifflebiere (1722) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2015
Liquide orange fonc, ocre tirant sur le brun, avec une couronne de mousse blanche en surface. Nez de brl, ou tout le moins fortement torrfi, avec un brin de caramel et de chocolat au lait. Bouche dlicieusement amre, soutenue par une carbonatation parfaite, juste un peu piquante. Assez ronde et savoureuse tout en offrant une buvabilit tonnante (encore une fois on souligne sa ptillance parfaite), elle allie originalit et haute qualit, une habitude chez cette brasserie. Trs agrable.

650 ml bottle from the 2014 Best of Beaus pack picked up at the LCBO.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy brown colour with lots of dense tan head with great retention. Leaves a fair bit of lacing.

Aroma: Malt, biscuit, coffee, cereal.

Flavours: Strong dark coffee, charcoal, grains and cereal.

Mouthfeel: Average mouthfeel with moderate carbonation.

Overall: This one is a pretty solid offering from Beaus. It has lots of good aromas and some really strong interesting coffee and cereal flavours. The mouthfeel is decent and not too thin. In my opinion, this is the best bottle from the 2014 Best of Beaus pack and one of their best beers from 2014.

pootzboy (1694) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours a light chestnut color with a small off white cap. Aroma of toasted cereals and coffe are intense. Slick mouth feel, rich character. THe front side of this amber ale has massive coffee tastes riding just above some wondrful toasted malts, hopping is in the background and compliments the bitter end of the coffee. Long wet finish where coffee drops back a bit to expose the hop bite. A very nice brew. If I closed my eyes Id have thought I was drinking a coffee-infused bockbier, its that smooth and well condiioned.

Pours a hazy copper with a big quickly shrinking white head and a couple spots on the glass. Aroma is cold coffee, malty, roasted notes, light ash, and mild refreshing citrus. Flavour is coffee, malty, roasted malts, cocoa, med bitterness, lightly spicy, citrus and a fairly dry finish.
