3.25/5  rDev -14.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a goblet. Bottle dated: 7521103, 2nd batch (Tomahawk x Odoo Shakiso)

A: Poured a deep amber, burnt orange color with 2 fingers worth of khaki colored head. The head is tightly packed with small bubbles which recedes leaving behind some spotted lacing.

S: Nose is piney, some floral with some light tropical fruit, and ends with some caramel sweetness that enhances or complements the pine notes. I'm picking up some faint roasted notes, not convinced of coffee though.

T: Taste is bitter upfront, big piney notes that somehow get counter balanced by some malt sweetness. At the back end I'm getting a bitter note, almost like chewing on roasted coffee beans.

M: Light/Medium bodied; Mouthfeel is a bit too light, carbonation was a bit low as well. I didn't feel that the flavors really meshed well at all. Overall, I did not understand the flavors and felt that they were a bit disjointed. My palate never was refreshed nor cleaned. The coffee notes were rarely noticed, except for the end notes of the taste.

Poured a deeply hazed orange color into my tulip snifter and put up a huge 2-1/2 finger head, large bubbles - slight smell of the coffee, not much in the way of hops - taste was kind of the same, and I didn't really like it -bitter- mouthfeel was on par with a decent ipa - I gotta say I was looking forward to this beer - thought it would be interesting, but I quickly lost interest - this is the first coffee/ipa I've had, and I would have thought Mikkeller would be able to pull it off, but not this time, not for me - I tried my 2nd and 3rd glass at different times of the day, to make sure, but no - it left me feeling 'not so good' -

Pours a deep golden color with a slight haze. Aroma of fresh coffee and hops, and not without some booze. In the taste, rich nutty coffee and some raw citrus, herbal, floral action. Bitter and a bit rough around the edges with the raw coffee flavor, still rather delicious. Medium bodied, well carbonated ale. Overall, a fine brew and proof coffee and hops can be a match made in heaven.

Tomahawk + Guji. Pours a murky amber with billowing soap bubble head, settles in a minute with small blobs of lace strewn about the glass. Smell: coffee over fruity... bitter chocolate...jammy - apricot, orange marmalade; resiny hopping. Taste: apricot jam, berry note and a "green" floral pop, then biscuit with jam and a bitter cocoa note that stays through the tangerine heavy finish. Medium bodied, creamy, active carb... sticky citrusy finish. Nice!
