COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: made for "The Trappist" in Oakland, CA.
The 8% ABV on the label is a misprint.

Danish: En lækkerbrun ale boostet med ypperlige espressobønner og en skøn aroma af citrus – resultatet er fantastisk, forførende og fragmenteret – ja dine vildeste drømme i flydende form. Visualiseret af kunstner, John Casey og brygget eksklusivt til The Trappist. Altså ikke munkeordenen i Belgien, fordi de er jo ret så dygtige til at lave øl. Men The Trappist ølbar i Oakland, Californien, hvor solen skinner, stemningen er cool, og øludvalget er alt for svedigt.

A - Served a cloudy brown color with a finger-plus of frothy tannish head atop. The head fades down slowly revealing lots of lace in the process. S - Aroma is a mix of sweet, light toasted caramel malts and some sharp coffee and citrus elements jumping out. T - Starts off with a kick of espresso flavor that starts to mellow out a bit right away. There is a nice balance provided by the sweet lightly toasted caramel malts. Through the middle, the malt flavor gets a bit richer and deeper with some citrus hops coming through. The finish is a mix of sweetness and some coffee flavor and bitterness that linger. M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth and just a bit creamy as well. D - Very drinkable. The balance here is quite nice and it is a very interesting take on the brown ale style. The coffee and hops really worked well and felt really incorporated into the beer.

draft at the Trappist... dark muddy brown with a big light tan head, good looking... the nose is hoppy coffee... the taste is rich chocolate dark fruits with a hop finish... solid worthy of drinking

On tap at the trappist. Smells like breakfast. Bacon maple syrup and pancakes. Tastes like beer. Paired nicely with pickled green tomatoes and habanero jerky. Grass fed of course.

Half a liter bottle that pours a muddy brown topped with a very fine cappochino coloured head. When uncapped it blasts nice hoppy notes away - a dream to create expectations. In the glass the nose still has the hoppy profile, but here you also gett some nice roastyness from coffee and some chocolatish sweetness. Finaly there is something that reminds me og corianter seeds. The taste is rather low key and not that explosive as the aroma. After a sec though it starts crowing and you really get the coffee notes from the espresso beans. Its bitter but at the same time mild with a sweet edge. The mouthfeel is medium with a creamy touch leading to a long dry finish with the bitterness from the espresso up front. Nice beer that does the job. Very drinkable without beeing too much

Brown ale what??? Bottle shared with Andrew and Brendan. Pours a dark, hazy amber body with creamy off white head. Aroma is fresh floral hop. Mouthfeel is hoppy with notes of herbal tones, floral hops, and a bit metallic flavor. VERY interesting beer, especially if this is actually a brown...

Bottle at the apt courtesy of James. Pours a mucky, rusty, deep brown with a lot of head. Aroma is chocolate, some coffee?, and hops. Surprisingly crisp and drinkable; metallic. Short legs. Not what I expected based on appearance/aroma. Good beer.

Bottled. A hazy red-brown beer with a huge lazing tan head. The aroma has notes of hops, fruits - both fresh and dried, malt, and a bit of caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of hops, alfaacid, malt, caramel, bread, and dried fruits, leading to a bitter finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.
