Smell of coffee in the right amount, in the mouth you can feel the hops and the coffee in harmony, and in the aftertaste you can feel the coffee..you can't notice the 10.5% alchool, great drinkability, a collaboration between To Øl and Mikkeller couldn't be nothing but a great beer

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had a brown-orange color and a dirty, murky consistency. There was an inch of foamy, somewhat long-lasting head. OK lacing.

S: Literally the moment you open the bottle the coffee aroma hits you. Also hints of hops and citrus as well.

T: Tasted of coffee (a big helping of it), a good amount of hops, citrus (a little grapefruit), and light malt. Unlike Mikkeller's Koppi, this beer delivers with the coffee in the flavor. It's surprisingly balanced and flavorful.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a slightly slick finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A completely enjoyable, easy to drink DIPA. An unusual beer that won't please everyone, but well worth a shot.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Big sediment on a murky wheat brown body. Fine white head sits low with ok retention, but leaves a nice lace.

S - Fresh tilled earth, dry coffee, booze, dried leaves.

T - Super unique. Bone dry burnt coffee and dry wheat. Stellar, soft ash note. Juicy orange is pretty much overwhelmed by the dry coffee, but still manages to hang around in the background and balance things out a bit.

M - Nice, smooth medium frame. Ok carbonation.

O - A really unique, dry take on an IPA with incredible drinkability for 10%+ ABV. The only knock is that it's not quite as bitter as I would expect for a DIPA.

Very complex, amazing beer. On first smell I thought sawdust that turned into espresso... a dusty espresso? The color is a light caramel that caught me off-guard, being that it’s an espresso beer. I really loved this beer, it reminded me of reading a really old book (in the smell) and sipping an espresso. The flavor of the beer hung-out with you for a while, but flavors got more complex the longer it hung out in the back of your mouth. I noticed some notes of dried plum through the complex flavors. The body and mouth feel were perfectly matched with the flavor tones. This beer felt like an 8.6% to me. Loved this beer!

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a murky dark golden yellow with hints of orange in color and light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a quarter finger tall beige head that reduces to a thin film covering the entire surface of the beer with a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Strong aromas of grapefruit/citrus hops and freshly ground coffee - with some lighter notes of green coffee beans.

T: Very light amounts of caramel malts upfront but the flavors of this beer are dominated by the coffee and grapefruit/citrus hops. The coffee tastes like a combination of espresso and green coffee beans. Moderate amounts of bitterness that lingers but not for too long.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of gentle carbonation. Smooth and creamy.

O: First coffee DIPA but this is a trend that I could really dig - combines too things that I really enjoy. I'm impressed with this beer and it might be a little past it's prime - definitely one to try if you come across it. Alcohol is quite well hidden and this feels like it could be sessionable - though I think it would really kick your butt.

This is a new colab between tø ol/ mikkeller poured from an 11.2 oz bottle into a duvel glass.

A- pours a murky brownish amber with three fingers of a large bubbled, fluffy off white head, the head fdissapates nicley leaving a heavy amount of beautiful lacing.

S- nice citrusy hop notes over a earthy roasted coffe backbone... Deffinatley some tropical fruit aromas poking through here, pinnepple and light grapefruit. A bit of light pine in there as well mingling with the light coffe notes... A very nice smelling brew.

T- is a lot like the nose... It seems like the hops are deffinatley up front here bringing a very nice blend of tropical fruit and pine with the coffe stepping in on the finish... To blend beautifully with the hops... It is not overly present but clearly there. Lightly roasted, giving an almost nuttyness on the finish with an ever slow slight hint of chocolate.... I really love the way all the flavors work together in this beer, it is very well rounded.

M- medium bodied with low carbonation... I'd say this brew has an almost creamy mouth feel... With a bit of a bitter finish of blended hops and coffe, very nicley rounded... Citrus peel, coffe and pine all rolled into one on the finish....

O - a very awesome brew!!!! Very well balanced, very drinkable considering the abv.... It remind me of the mikkeller koppi ipa, except even better, and I really enjoyed that beer... I would highly recommend picking this up if you have the chance.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance brown cloudy with a little head. No lacing.

Smell you can smell the hops and the coffee.

Taste Some hops in the beginning with coffee in the middle with a citrus hop finish.

mouthfeel very stingy on the tongue. It is a little gritty.

This is a great beer. I think it is better than 120 or double trouble.

4.25/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance is a nice orangey-deep tan body with full cream colored head that smells great and has decent retention. Aroma is of floral hoppiness and light sweet coffee, I also get some caramel type sweetness. The taste hides the 10.5% extremely well. I had to look at the bottle again to check the ABV. Again with the caramel/coffee sweetness alongside the great malt balance, and great earthy/floral hop character. Mouthfeel is creamier than most IPAs and it doesn't dance on the tongue like IPAs do. I was worried about this beer being out of date, and I almost cellared this for a year to push it towards a coffee barley wine. The bottle top had a date of 8-2-14, which is over a year away, so I doubt that's a best by date. Anywho, my first Mikkeller offering and I wasn't disappointed. Not a stellar as the Dayman coffee IPA, but still extremely enjoyable. I look forward to coffee IPAs being a standard.
