neongolden (1382) - 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 (1755) - 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

Had a pint at the Boardroom Pub in FWB. One of my favorite brown ales and currently my favorite coffee brown ale along with Terrapins Single Origin Series. Aroma is very welcoming but the flavor is more in your face coffee. Carbonation is on point producing a very drinkable beer.
