Tried on-tap at the Welcome Hotel in Rozelle during their Beer Mimics Food event for Sydney Craft Beer Week.

Pours an extremely cloudy brown colour, darker than it would otherwise be because of the opacity of the haze. Head is very fine forming a decent ring around the edge of the glass. Light weight in the body. It looks fine enough.

Nose is bright with coffee, in a refined and rather fragrant aroma. Slight sweetness, but not enough: there's certainly only a hint of the banana bread, more something savoury and slightly grainy. It smells like afternoon tea.

Taste has pleasant coffee flavours working off a stretched thin malt basis. Some clinging roast on the back, but again it's pretty thin overall. The coffee addition is done nicely, but there's not much else there to back it up. It's pleasant enough in its way, but it's not all that interesting.

Thin in the feel—rather disappointing.

Overall, this is okay. But it's far from the best use of coffee in a beer, and doesn't really deliver what it promises in its name. 4 Pines have done much better Beer Mimics Food beers in the past.
