This was absolutely fantastic. Bent Paddle is killing it right now folks. Up front coffee notes, but extremely drinkable.

I would describe this as well-carbonated but still very smooth.

My first offering from this brewery and I was quite impressed. Lots of fresh coffee flavor.

Mouthfeel is full, creamy and just generally of the charts.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a dark brownish black with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid two finger tan head that settles into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A very roasty coffee and dark malt forward aroma with good hints of coffee beans, chocolate, and earthy hops. Big upfront scent of cold press coffee along with good hints of dark chocolate, toast, biscuit, oats, caramel, nuts, and yeast. Light hints of sugar and cream. Also some hints of earthy and spicy hops in the background. A very solid aroma.

Taste: Like the nose hints, a nicely roasty coffee dark malt forward taste with big notes of coffee and chocolate along with some earthy hops. Big taste of cold press coffee beans upfront. Dark roasted malt with notes of dark chocolate, toasted bread, biscuit, caramel, nuts, oats, and yeast. Nice notes of cream and light sugar. Background notes of earthy hops with some pine. A very good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Creamy, silky, and pretty smooth with a drying finish.

Overall: A very good coffee ale. Big taste of fresh coffee with some good dark malt and subtle hop notes.

Pours black with a two finger tan head. The aroma has coffee, dark roasted malt, and a little cocoa. The coffee smells very nice.

The taste has more of the great coffee found in the aroma, along with dark roasted malt, cocoa, and maybe a little lactose too.

Light to medium bodied with light carbonation. Very easy to drink. If you like a good cup of coffee, and a good beer. This combination should work nicely.
