4.26/5  rDev +9.2%

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Indeed shaker glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep brownish amber with a lot of rising bubbles. About one finger of off white head that settles into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a lot of creamy lacing.

Smell: A roasty and fairly sweet malt forward aroma with a huge presence of cold pressed coffee beans. Roasted malts with upfront hints of coffee beans, chocolate, caramel, toffee, grains, nuts, yeast, and cream. Sweet hints of brown sugar. Subtle hints of dark fruit with a little fig and dates. Background hints of earthy hops. Very coffee dominant. A very nice aroma.

Taste: Like the aroma hints at, a roasty and sweet malty taste with a huge presence of cold pressed coffee beans throughout. Dark roasted malts with a huge taste of coffee beans as well as some chocolate, caramel, toffee, cream, toast, yeast, nuts, and grains. Sweet taste of brown sugar. Subtle dark fruit undertones of dates and fig. Some earthy hops towards the finish. A very good coffee brew taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, smooth, and fairly drying on the finish.

Overall: A very good coffee beer. Tastes very similar to Surly's Coffee Bender. Very good cold pressed coffee taste with a brown ale base.

Serving glass: Pored from bottle into Nonic Pint.

Appearance: Cloudy ruby orange with moderate sized, light tan head.

Smell: Caramel infused espresso. Pretty strong and pleasing aroma, but one dimensional.

Taste: Coffee is definitely dominant. Some caramel, toasted malts and dark fruits as well, with a hint of spiciness on the finish along with the roasted coffee.

Feel: Moderate carbonation with a body that is a little too thin but mostly works for this beer.

Overall: The closest I have tasted to a true beer and coffee hybrid and I like it.

Served from the tap.

The beer was hazy with a brown/red colour. It had a strong coffee nose, with butterscotch and caramel. The taste was lighter than expected; the caramel malts were upfront, which moved into toasted grains and hops, and then moved into the roasted coffee flavours. The aftertaste was of buttery-caramel.

Would I buy it again? Yes.

Dark reddish amber color with two fingers of head that held firm before eventually settling to a thin cap. Moderate amount of spotty lacing is left down the glass.

Aroma is pure coffee. The cold pressed coffee smells as if it is lightly roasted. More earthy and sweet smelling.

A little bit more to this beer than just coffee when tasted. Very little roasted quality in the beer. Hints of toffee, caramel, and nuts. Finishes with a touch of sweetness.

Light body and lightly carbonated.

More of a coffee infused with beer than the other way around. Lighter bodied than most other coffee beers and lower ABV. I would still take my coffee in a bigger, more richly malted beer.

Pours amber brown. Fair amount of head recedes to leave some lacing.

Aroma is brown ale nuttiness with some coffee and some toffee sweetness.

Taste is really nutty with toasted malt/ bread etc. Followed by coffee and toffee sweetness.

Fairly light on the palate with moderate carbonation.

This was from the last batch so it is a couple months old. Maybe the coffee fades fast but I recall the previous batch having a more robust in your face coffee flavor.

This is a lower alcohol beer, coming in at 5.1% ABV and 15 IBU. Indeed has paired with local Northeast Minneapolis neighbor Dogwood Coffee to make this particular beer. It is infused with ground Colombia El Meridiano coffee before being finished with cold brewed Dogwood NEON. I've been pretty happy with Indeed's beers and love their Northeast taproom, so I was happy to get to try this one. The namesake for this beer is the burr grinder, a coffee grinder thought by most coffee aficianados to be the best. I have cheaper model at home and it certainly improves the coffee consistency versus the blade grinder I used to use. The beer comes in a 750 ml bottle with an attractive design and wax-dipped top.

Aroma: Bright light roast coffee aroma up front with a bit of sweet malt and caramel. No hop aroma. Fairly subtle overall.

Appearance: Pours a ruby to nearly brown color with excellent clarity. A fine off-white head that is od medium size.

Flavor: Strong coffee flavor at the start and really is present throughout the whole tasting process. Some malt sweetness and toffee flavors balance the astringency of the roasted beans. This is a lighter bodied beer with an off-dry finish.

Overall: A good use of coffee as the star of this beer. The coffee is fresh and bright tasting without the burnt character that often accompanies the style. A well balanced creation and very drinkable.

4.08/5  rDev +4.6%

Pint on tap at Pizza Luce St. Paul.

A- Light brown with reddish hue and lots of light coming through. Small fluffy white head dissipated quite rapidly.

S- Light roast coffee with no bitter notes and quite a bit of sweetness present.

T- Follows the nose: very sweet light roast coffee with a little bitterness just on the forward from the coffee but mellows out as the sweetness progresses and remains. Not much roasted malt present.

M- Very light mouthfeel and clears quickly, minimal lingering on the palate. Refreshing like a light iced coffee.

O- A very nice coffee brown ale with just the right amount of sweetness. It presents itself as a Coffee Bender doppelgänger almost yet not enough body and coffee punch. A great middle of the afternoon pick me up but it will not replace my go to Coffee Bender for my breakfast get me ready for any day beer.

Cheers.
