look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

On-tap at Mikkeller and Friends in Copenhagen. Served in a 20c Mikkeller glass...

A: Light amber; cream head; impressive lace.

S: Coffee bean; hints of grapefruit rind and pine; big (raw) coffee aroma, though.

T: Piney hops initially... quickly followed by deep coffee flavor - wow, it's pretty huge; maybe a touch of smoked malt, too.

M: Full-bodied; moderate carbonation; a touch viscous on the palate.

O: A doozy of a brew... Imperial IPA + Coffee + 10.5% = maybe a bit too much, but still interesting and glad I tried it!

This beer pours a medium bodied, very cloudy, dark dirty orange n color with a one finger, very soapy beige head. It's not the best looking beer in the world. Luckily the nose is as promised. There is plenty of coffee bean, sweet malt, citrusy hops, soap, and mild hop bitterness. I really dig it. The flavors are both complex and interesting. There is the coffee up front but still plenty of citrusy hop character and a moderately sweet malt backbone. There is a decent amount of sugar in this DIPA. The coffee hides it pretty well though and makes the alcohol content unnoticeable. I really appreciate the coffee being the primary aspect of the after taste. It drinks full in body for a DIPA with residual sugar but doesn't really drink like most of the style. It's kind of chewy. Overall this was a really nice beer. I didn't know what to expect from this Mikkeller/To Ol collaboration but it really impressed me. Tis beer is definitely worth a try.

Poured from a 33cL bottle into a brandy snifter. Cap stamped 08/02/14...best before 2 August 2014? Guessing American date, rather than European based on this appearing in August.

A: Murky yellow-brown topped by a head with enormous bubbles, we're talking marble sized. It looks bizarre, but kind of cool. Fades rather fast. Largely opaque.

S: Cold coffee. Grapefruit peel. They combine pretty evenly, but not without some dissonance. Bitter coffee grinds and strong hops. Obviously a coffee IPA...

T: Mmmm! Yay! It's tasty! It's no Koppi Coffee IPA, which was almost a perfect beer, but it definitely works. Well-carbonated, with strong, bitter, resiny hops. This is the main flavor, until the latter half of the beer that finishes with distinctive coffee bitterness. It tastes almost like coffee was added to the beer after brewing...

M: Sparkly and compelling, it more than counters any sort of feeling of stale coffee.

O: Apparently I really enjoy coffee IPAs, and I will look for more. I'd recommend this interesting and pleasant beer to all.

Poured from a 11.2 oz bottle in to a snifter.

Opaque burnt orange color with a light tan 1/2" head. Recedes to 1/8", comes back nicely with a swirl. Leaves wide spotty curtains of lacing. Looks a little odd for a DIPA but I'll give it the benefit of the doubt since it's made with coffee.

Roasty, nicely bitter coffee comes out most on the nose with some orange and lemon zest. A little white pepper. Not too complex but it's nice how well the coffee and hops come together.

The taste reverses the nose, with juicy orange, lemon zest, and a little pine coming on first, followed by rich, smooth, roasty coffee. The finish is all coffee with a slight hop bitterness. Nicely balanced. Again, the hops and coffee go together well. Hides the ABV well.

The texture is excellent. Medium bodied, smooth, creamy in the middle but ends drier, lets the coffee and hops linger in the aftertaste.

Not your normal IPA but I liked it a lot. They made the coffee and hops come together better than I would have imagined. Unique, balanced, and well crafted.

Done in a horizontal tasting with Koppi Coffee IPA from Mikkeller and Bed and Breakfast from Brouwerij De Molen.

Eye: Starts off with a nice creamy one finger head that eventually falls down to a sheet over the beer. Lacing looks nice as well. Color is pretty much the same as the Mikkeller Koppi Coffee IPA, murky tan/light brown.

Nose: Strong blend of hops and coffee in the aroma here. Earthy hops take the lead and coffee struggles to get through but is there in the background creating an interesting backdrop.

Tongue: Less intense coffee flavor in this one, hops are the much more dominant flavor. The aroma suggests that they'd be nicely balanced but Mikkeller's Koppi Coffee IPA is a much more what I expected from an IPA with coffee in it. Unlike the Mikkeller, this one gets bitterness from hops, very little coffee flavor making its way through, its much more subdued. Pretty green hop flavor, real fresh, real earthy. Alcohol is detectable. Coffee flavor is there, but it supports the hops instead of; like the Mikkeller, taking the stage from the hops and then bringing them back for an encore performed together. This beer has more depth of flavor and isn't as single minded. The more I drink of it the better I like it, its a completely different beast, more complex. Medium body with appropriate levels of carbonation. Definitely an IIPA though.

Drinkability: This one is definitely worth checking out. Different than the Mikkeller because it isn't as single minded and its much more complex. Two very different beers here, can't really choose a favorite because they are so different. Both are better than the Bed and Breakfast though. Depending on what I want I'd have to say go for this one over the Mikkeller just because its a little more complex, but if I want something straight forward and single minded then I'd go for the Mikkeller.
