Ungstrup (39531) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2017
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of coffee, malt, fruits, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, fruits, and coffee, leading to a bitter finish. Foffern (2145) - Bodø, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2017
Bottle at home. Two year old. Has a dark amber colour with a big beige head. Aroma of cocoa, wood, cold coffee, weed, jalapenos, heather, grains, rowan berries and dried apricots. The flavor is more grassy with sweet malt in the background. There’s also some wood, leather and some alcohol. Has a slick and soft mouth feel, full-bodied and medium to heavy bitterness. A one of a kind ale with an interesting aroma. Strange in my opinion. Quite bitter and I feel there must be more to balance it out. kapusta (121) - Browns Summit, North Carolina, USA - DEC 31, 2016
Bottle thanks to Valéry DeBreucker at Fantome. Pours cloudy, deep muddy gold with a fluffy rocky off-white head. Aroma of coffee grounds and toasted grains, mocha? Semi-sweet flavor with sugar bread, sugary espresso, cocoa powder, slight hops. Average body with average carbonation. Mildly sweet finish.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle.
Aroma is interesting and not exactly coffee forward with some toasted bread and dark caramel notes. Light nutty notes and fairly fruity with a faint roast note. Stone fruit, pear and red apple with some faint banana.
Pours a somewhat hazy, copper red with a medium large, thick, pillowy, light tan head that exhibits decent retention as it slowly recedes. Light lacing and small legs.
Flavor is fairly sweet with some light caramel, toasted bread and nut notes. Hints of honey. Moderate red apple and pear notes. Light coffee flavors and faint roast notes. Moderately strong bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low, but present alcohol warmth.
Overall, a weird beer, but it works better than I was expecting and much better than the dark version. Roast notes are very faint and the coffee character is light and fruity. Its still weird though and not in a particularly good way. Minderbinder (3469) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 9, 2016
Pours amber/orange with high creamy off-white head. Aroma is of fruits, malts, sugar, soap. Taste is of gross bitterness, malt (roasted), sugar, soap. Palate: Medium body. Overall: Weird, lacking recipe. Amateur.

Pours a clear amber with a thin white head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of coffee, fruits, burnt toasts and a little vegetal. Taste offers more coffee with ashy angles and moderate bitterness. A little earthy. Alcohol is moderately warming. Medium body and carbonation. "Drinkable" for sure but why do that? czar (9971) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 6, 2016
bottle shared by mathieuc, thanks bro. pours unclear bright copper-orange with a very nice off-white head, some retention and lacing. soap, lightly torrefied coffee grains, tons of spices - cloves, masala mindfuck; some sweetness - berry jam; yeast. moderate carbonation, light body - oily; semi-sweet berry-coffee finish. needless to say, it is awkward and unique - but not good. djd07 (16644) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Bottle. Pours a muddy brown with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is roast coffee and spice. Medium body, roast, spice, off finish, odd. ametras (1879) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 12, 2016
750ml bottle. Slightly hazy burnt orange with a foamy off-white head. Flavors are dough, toasted/lightly roasted cereals, chocolate, toffee and coffee with herbal, fruity, nutty and spicy notes. Medium body, moderate carbonation, oily texture. Strange... Johnsense (1850) - - JUL 29, 2016
Reddish gold pour, larger head, specs of lace. Bitter aroma, coffee, yeast, toffee. Initially sour on the palate then the coffee takes over. Toffee, lighter chocolate notes, malty, yeast. Medium to lighter body. Complex, if not a bit muddled.
