Tons of coffee and some chocolate. Dark body and a nice head. The aroma gives u coffee. Alengrin (6013) - BELGIUM - FEB 5, 2018
Bruery stout with Philippine coffee, supporting a charity project apparently. Loose, bubbly, unstable, pale greyish beige head, very dark chestnut brown colour with mahogany hue, not black as I would have expected. Aroma of a lot of coffee powder and cold espresso, caramel sauce, whisky, bitter chocolate, toast, hazelnuts, nutmeg, dried plum. Sweetish onset, lots of nuttiness from the start, dried fig, light sourishness; soft carbo, oily and bit resinous mouthfeel. Very nutty and sweetish caramelly malt body with toasted bitter edges, highlighting the coffee in the end; ends dry and toasted bitter with an afterglow of warming, whisky-like alcohol. Nice and interesting, but The Bruery has done better stouts. dnstone (4034) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JAN 25, 2018
Chocolate, coffee, cinnamon aroma. Pours black in color with tan head. Taste carries chocolate, coffee, cinnamon aroma with some alcohol notes in the finish.

Level 42 Bottleshare. Thanks to Leighton. Opaque dark brown beer, small tan head. Airy palate, semi dry and with decent fine carbonation. Smooth dark malts bringing reasonable dark chocolate. Mellow coffee. Spice on the back end, almost like chilli. Decent but lacks the normal Bruery punch.
Its OK. As usual it's a coffee stout that seems thinned out, rather than a full, sweeter palate (ala Alesmith Speedway representing my top example). Light roast, light coffee notes. Mild astringency at finish. Light to medium mouthfeel. Also a little booze and burnt sugar, esp in the nose. Just a touch of booze in the immediate finish, but several seconds later you can definitely feel the high ABV in your stomach and brain. Black, low carbonation, no obv effervescence in the glass, smallish tan head.

8/6/2016 -- from notes: 750ml bottle, from Dutch's. Black color. An aggressive pour gives this a nicely-sized tan head, that leaves good lace. Satisfying amount of coffee, nice bigger amount here, and it lingers pleasantly in the aftertaste. Not as sweet nor heavy as I feared, pretty well-attenuated. Moderate sweet, with a bigger bitterness that works well with the coffee. Some mild alcohol warmth, but nothing approaching bothersome... Just helps to enhance the aftertaste, really. Medium to bigger body, not as big as expected. Mild creamy chewiness. Mild slick, but not syrupy on the back end. Great stuff. I was nervous about opening this for a while, thinking I wouldn't be able to chief it due to big sugary sweetness. That was not the case.

Bottle split at L42, thanks to Leighton K Smith, 19/10/17.
Black with a decent tan head.
Nose is big on coffee grinds, spice, dark fruit esters, mellow roast, dark malts.
Taste comprises coffee, chocolate, spice, fruit cake, roast malts.
Medium plus body, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a light warming alcohol rip.
Decent enough impy but far from Wow, I expected a bigger coffee hit. The_Osprey (9921) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2017
October 2017 - Bottle share at One Canada Square. Huge thanks! As 'The Bruery Share This: Coffee'. A mere 11.9% - quite restrained for a Bruery beer! Pours opaque black with a foamy brown head. Aroma has loads of the expected coffee with cocoa, chocolate and ash notes. Some red berry. Body is light and smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is pretty spicy, lots of coffee of course, sugary to start but finishes quite papery-dry with lots of spice and a little ash. Interesting and tasty.
