look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - Dark brown with garnet hues, one finger beige head, decent lacing.

S - Toffee, bitter/pungent/citrus hop aromas, soft nuttiness/roasted malts, brown sugar.

T - Juicy/slightly pungent hops, roasted malts, light coffee beans, brown sugar.

M - Medium-light body, almost watery, moderate carbonation.

O - Drinkable, unique mixture of flavors. I feel like the body could be less watery and the flavors more concentrated.

The Trappist (2011) version, best before 2015.

500ml bottle, 6.9% ABV, and a different label. Made with gourmet beans from the Coffee Collective in Copenhagen.

This beer pours a very dark red-tinted brown hue, with three fingers of densely foamy, rocky beige head, which leaves some broad, droopy, honeycomb-pocked swaths of lace around the glass as it slowly ebbs away.

It smells of bitter piney, citrusy hops, immediately inundated with equally tangy, dry, earthy, roasted coffee grounds, a mild nutty caramel malt, and further leafy, herbal liqueur notes. The taste is more malty up front, the lightly toasted bready, nutty caramel character ceding a little less territory this time, as aided by a burgeoning baker's chocolate sweetness, though the zingy citrus rind, pine resin, and bitter, earthy coffeehouse essences still push their agenda to the limit. A wee booze warming tugs at the fraying corners.

The carbonation is quite tame, though the wee bubbles do well to keep things moving along, the body a decent medium-full weight, and smooth with that lingering hop bite caveat. It finishes off-dry, the cocoa/caramel/nut liquor malt still fending off a prominent incursion from a seemingly regrouped hop contingent.

A pretty hefty brown ale, lots going on, and I do like that the coffee notes, so pungent up front, wane at a slow, almost unnoticeable pace, until you can't even tell that they've somehow been (mostly) replaced by an equally implacable chocolate aura. Oh, and the hops - they keep things honest with extreme prejudice.

Poured from a 500mL bottle into a stein. Served lightly chilled.

Auburn highlights suggest a clear but nearly opaque bottle-brown ale - capped by an enormous heft of khaki soft peaks. Sticky threads of lace cling tenaciously to the sides. Excellent retention.

Aromatics of demerara sugar, cocoa nibs, toast, coffee, black bread - all soft and melanoidin-rich with no hints of char.

Roast is more pronounced on the palate, the chocolate and espresso notes taking on a nearly acrid character, the citrus laden hop notes emphasizing the astringency while adding slight additional bitterness. Strange but flavorful, with an extended evolution into the finish which is woody, earthy, suggestive of river stones, and finally returns to a toasted sweetness at the last possible moment.

Slightly thin but well carbonated; surprisingly warming for the ABV.

Reminds me of a sweeter version of a foreign export stout. Not bad, but not special. Hard to rate in some ways as it subtly eschews style.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours an effervescent chestnut/orange with 3+ fingers of tan head. Pretty good lacing & head retention

S: Toasty, coffee notes, a little hazel nut

T: Coffee, coffee grounds, dryness & a touch of vanilla up front. Dryness, charred grain, roastyness & less brown ale as this warms, some toastyness does linger at the edges, some woody hops. Finishes with coffee grinds, some toastyness & dryness

MF: Medium body, firm carbonation

Drinks fairly easy, not great, but worth a try I suppose

Poured into a Double Barley can-shaped glass. No readable freshness date.

A- Pours a medium brown color with a full inch of light tan head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheety of sheer surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves small clots behind.

S- Toasty caramel malt presence that's also a bit fruity, surprisingly.

T- More toasted malt that's pretty sweet and has some roasty coffee in the aftertaste. There's also a weird fruitiness and bitterness that I can only assume is coming from the hops.

M- Standard brown feel with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- Drinkable enough but the flavor profile is unusual and I'm not particularly digging it. Not enough coffee and too much fruity hop quality for a brown ale.

A: The beer is very dark brown in color and appears black when viewed from afar - traces of red are visible near the edge of the glass. It poured with a quarter finger high tan head that died down a bit, but consistently left a thin head covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of brown and roasted malts plus pine resin and citrusy hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste very much follows the smell and has a light to moderate amount of bitterness from the hops.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found this brown ale to be quite interesting because its quite hoppy, which is even more impressive since it was aged for 13 months. It's definitely quite interesting.

Batch #001. 16oz can poured into a tulip. Pours brown with auburn hues; fluffy light khaki head that slowly falls leaving great retention and sticky lacing. There's some sediment/floaties. The aromas have a nice blend of citrus and coffee. There's some toffee and caramel in the mix. Roasted malts are present. The flavors seem to follow the nose. This brown ale has some hop flavor going on. Hints of orange and lemon. The coffee is present. Flavors are bittersweet. Nice coffee flavors in the finish. Subtle hints of hazelnut and almonds in the mix as well. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is very nice. It's medium-bodied with active carbonation. It's very fluffy and creamy. Very smooth and easy to drink.

This is a very nice brown ale. It's somewhat unique with the contrast between the coffee and citrus notes. Enjoyable stuff.

A: Pours a clear yet opaque very dark amber in color with some light to moderate amounts of gentle carbonation at the surface of the beer and some deep garnet red highlights. The beer has a half finger tall creamy dark tan head that slowly reduces to

S: Moderate aromas of roasted malts with some hints of nutty malts. Light to moderate aromas of pine and citrus/grapefruit rind hops.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of roasted malts with some light hints of nutty malts and just a hint of anise/licorice. Moderate flavors of pine and citrus/grapefruit rind hops which contribute a light to moderate amount of bitterness which fades but still lingers for a while.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with slightly more than moderate amounts of carbonation. Light hints of dryness in the finish.

O: Pretty enjoyable and the hops have some really staying power in this beer as it has been sitting around for over a year before I to opening this one. Not sure, I could have more than one of these in a session but it was definitely worth tasting.

This is a dark brown, clear brew. The head is moderate in size. The aroma is woody, roasty, spring-like, and fresh. Malt and hops are notable. The taste is dryish, with malt and bitterness. Malt flavor aounds. Medium in body and interesting

16 oz Can — "Batch#001 18:11"
Poured into 20 oz Nonic

A — Pours with a nice mahogany brown amber hue into the glass. A billowy cream colored head forms on top and leaves behind some sudsy foamy spots of lacing with each sip.

S — Smell is roasty and bright, lots of fresh coffee balanced upon a sweet caramel like malt body.

T — Rich but clean notes of coffee and citrus, a really light and vibrant roast with hints of lemon and peppercorn.

M — Medium bodied, a little bit light actually.

O — Very nice overall, very similar to Coffee Bender but not as heavy. A smooth crisp and clean coffee brown, I will be having a few of these, really well done.

Pours a sexy brown like a medium roasted coffee bean with a touch of orange in it. Looks hazy and I never really could say clear. There's a huge whiff of coffee at first. then that settles pretty mild and pretty deep into the beer. Spice and lots of it. Its the same kind as in Southern Tiers German pils from last week and I like it on this nose paired with some sweet earth and hop herbal. Cocoa and a light sweet malt aroma. Nutty toasty and mild. Also there is very light citrus presence all around .

Drinks smoothly and very lightly with a medium malt body. It's just sweet so it's a delicate sweetness on a robust malt to take the coffee.Nuts and their bitter backnote, coffee and it's mild but totally blended . A light sweet cocoa and faintly bitter. A light fruit backnote develops as the beer warms in the nose and on the palate but it is terribly faint. Carbonation is moderate.

This beer had some delicate features to it that made it very pleasantly complex.The finish is a solid moderate hops bitter that shows you all kinds of malt in the lingering aftertaste. Excellent.
