Pours an amber colour, fine bubbles; nice beige head, cloudy bosy at least slightly. Not much lace, but still looks nice.

Lovely rich, spicy coffee nose. Earthy characters with toffeed malt, chocolate and nice soft coffee roast, not overwhelming. Complex and very enticing.

Taste is a little less impressive, at least in terms of the initial wow factor. Hints of chocolate, dough and pie spice, then soft coffee roast at the back with a piquant roasty spice. Breakfasty enough, and pleasant. Has subtleties that are not present on the nose, and just as much complexity. Feels wholesome, grainy and pleasant.

Bit of sharpness at the back, otherwise full and nice.

Tasty, interesting drop. I have to admit this was my most anticipated of the Beer Mimics Food series and it certainly didn't disappoint. Hope to see this one re-brewed sometime.

Part of the series of beers 4 Pines brewed for 2012's Sydney Craft Beer Week, under the theme of "Beer Mimics Food".

Pours a pleasantly burnished, slightly hazy amber hue, with a solid body. Head is a very fine off-white, and it leaves some solid if somewhat patchy lace. Not much carbonation is visible at all. Love the colour.

Nose is very good, both matching the Beer Mimics Food theme and being tasty in its own right: bright, fresh coffee aromas mingle with hints of waffle and syrup sweetness. There's a slight toastiness behind it too beyond the coffee character. Not only can you see the food genesis behind the beer, you can see that this was a good idea.

Taste follows similar patterns. Some mild sweet coffee on the front, accentuated by a clean bourbon vanilla character, turning to mocha and toasty, grainy richness mid-palate. On the back is a lingering maple evanescence, along with a hint of burnt toast; perhaps even a touch of smoke.

Feel is smooth but light. Pleasant enough.

Overall, this is some really good stuff. Very smooth and really quite drinkable, but with some interesting and surprising flavours.
