Coffee beer, donc si lon veut traduire, non pas une bire bue dans un caf, mais une bire caf Ratebeer, avec sa simplification lgendaire, nous parle dun stout. Va pour un stout!! Dans sa grande bont, le frre Jacob nous dit que la bire est enrichie dun caf Java du Guatemala , et dans sa magnanimit il nous prcise mme quil sagit de la finca La Pila. Vous nimaginez pas, frre Jacob, tout le plaisir que nous avons de connatre vos sources de bienfaisance!! Niveau abv de 7,7%. Exemplaire un an avant sa date. Couleur brun marron, roux en transparence, la clart nette. Bulles fines par centaines, bien vives. Mousse caf crme (normal pour une coffee beer ), superbe nappage stable 2 mm. Armes de caf (tiens donc ..), cappuccino, crme de marron, pointe de noisette. Superbe nez. 1re bouche veloute, la sublime entame malt/caf/choco/liqueur (de caf !!). Arrire-bouche pleine, complexe, longue. 2me la splendide harmonie, des lments, dans un corps plein. Arrire-bouche avec quelques fruits noirs, et aussi une amertume dlicate. 3me trs grande bouche, ample et fine la fois, avec de la ganache, du moka. Arrire-bouche bien nuance, et grande dlicatesse. Longueur avec un magnifique dveloppement des bouches prcdentes, jointes un nez trs ouvert et splendide. Jambes lisses et longues. Levure belle, nette, prcise, un rien fruite. Trs grande ligne. Alcool progressif, il entretient les saveurs avec beaucoup dentrain, mais sans excs. Finale aux nuances supplmentaires de fruits, bois, pices. CONCLUSION: bire que seul pouvait concevoir frre Jacob, puisquil tait le seul connatre la finca La Pila Bienheureux soit-il davoir visit le Guatemala!!!

Draft @ ZBF12. Brune, col pais beige. Arme est de pur caf, on a difficile dcrocher son nez du verre, un fin houblon se pointe en retrait, mais le tout reste juste caf et encore caf sans pour cela tre surfait. En bouche, caf est partout dans un bon sens, laissant des notes expresso/moka et toffee avec un malt grill, le tout agrmenter par un houblon subtile. Jen redemande.

Poured dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of coffee and roast malt,. Fairly full body, flavour is more like a strong latte. End is quite bitter, but still with some creamyness.

Bottle from Douberd - many thanks! The beer pours out in a deep black colour with steady low head and medium to smooth body. Aroma pf malt and espresso. Taste of dark hops, malt, bread, berries, torf, woods and coffee. Very intense palate of espresso - what a nice surprise. Palatestays forever.

Geur van frisse appel, stroop en mout. Mooi donker van kleur, stevig schuim. Smaak van iets zurige koffie.

Ibrew2or3 (8359) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Zythos Bierfestival 2012, Leuven, Belgium. Pours murky mahogany with copper edges and full tan head of foam. The aroma is straight up coffee like Folgers coffee and something a little richer. The taste is pretty nice with fairly rich coffee notes rolling into espresso notes, some nuttiness and a bit of toffee like goodness that enhances the experience. This has several layers of coffee and various malt and toffee nuances that creates a rather yummy like harmony.

0.75 Litre bottle shared at the Diester Bierfestival on 20 Oct 2012. Dark brown with a good solid head of tan coloured foam. Intense coffee flavours: the nose and taste are just infused completely with fresh ground coffee, or that is how it seemed. Stay away from this if you dont like coffee (there is a hint in the beers name). Rich and heavy, really enjoyed it: had to have a glass of water afterwards though or Id not have tasted anything else bar coffee all afternoon.

Coffee beer !!! Got a nice brown dark colour with nice aroma and taste of coffee, chocolate and maybe a little bit of nuts. Palate not very noticable, her only weakness
