@TheBruery

App- A bit lighter than the "Gedeo" A nice looking beer and was semi- bubbly. A nice mix of colors. Solid in the glass.

Smell- Ahhh. This is some good coffee on this one. Cold pressed coffee, creamy sugars. Balanced out by espresso and roasted notes. No trace of the red malts on this.

Taste- This was some pure coffee in a glass. A nice bite to it. Good balance of the malts and flavors. A full roasted flavor and a bit grainy.

Mouth- A good and solid full body with a lower medium carbonation. Residual sugar and coffee.

Drink- The best of the 5 variants. A very good balanced coffee beer.
