From bottle at The Festival. Murky hazy gold pour with little head. Strong coffe aroma, very vegetal however, lots of green pepper smell, raw beans, very much like kopi luwak. Strong vegetal coffee flavor as well, some hoppiness, resinous, ultra vegetal.

Shared between friends and poured into Crown and Rose Pub nonics from 750ml capped bottle. Hazed dark bronze color topped with 3+ finger eggshell froth leaving behind a nice wall of lace marking each sip. Nose leads on to pine and grapefruit peel, but the coffee is right there with it. Not too sure of this. It's foreign territory as far as beer goes. Multiple hop characters - floral, earthy, and fruity. The coffee is not like I expected - it's very robust, but balances out nicely in this beer. I can't believe it's that good. It just works out somehow. There is also a buttery character that adds oil to the medium body making it on the velvety side. For such a strange blend, this beer is full of win. I won't hesitate to buy it again.

Beer bottle (33 cl.) purchased from La Cervoiserie, and tasted in 2013.

Appearance : deep red color, with huge foamy head (but too big bubbles)
Smell : spicy and coffee aromas.
Taste & mouthfeel : coffee and chocolate flavors with spicy notes, leading to a dry and bitter finish.
Drinkability : a good beer in the style American IPA.

Really have looked forward to this one and was excited to find it at Argonaut liquors in Denver.

A: slightly hazy, orangish-gold, some light carbonation and light lacing.

S: Burnt, acrid coffee grounds and dirt. Lots of both. earthy, mushroom like hop smell is there too. The slightly musty, citrusy hops are barely there. I wonder what this would be like fresh, but it really isn't pleasant right now.

T: more earthy, burnt tasting, coal and ash. It tastes like chewing on old coffee grounds and some earthy weird hops. Not pleasant by any means. I didn't expect to struggle to drink a glass with my friends. There is some slight malt sweetness there, but that's the only redeeming quality.

M: slick, oily, slightly thin. light carbonation.

O: I really was let down by this. I figured at the worst, it would be weird and not meld well with the hops and coffee. Instead, the coffee character was disguisting, and the ipa character was nonexistent or barely there. What a mess. I know this is difficult to brew or nail, but this was a huge waste of excitement and money.
