BEER INFO

Brewed by:
To Øl
Denmark
to-ol.dk

Style: American Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
This is our attempt of substituting the morning mochaccino coffee with a beer. You get the nicely roasted chocolate malts, some creamy lactose for the milk and a shot of nutty espresso coffee in your mug. And then some alcohol, it seemed just as obvious as some vodka in a white russian. We do not recommend opting for this beer instead of coffee (all the time…)

Ingredients: Water, Malted barley, flaked oats, lactose, Hops (Simcoe, Citra, Nelson Sauvin, Centennial), coffee and Yeast.

Brewed at De Proef Brouwerij, Lochristi-Hijfte, Belgium

Mahogany with spongy pocked sepia foam.
Flinty, grainy nose with brown soda loaf, drip coffee, cola spice and some noble grass.
Doughy brown bread malts, cocoa powder, Dr. Pepper, roasty sourness that could be coffee and earthy hops.
Coffee hard candy end and tingly minty linger.
Medium, fizzy, round.

Not sweet or cloying - maybe a tad too fizzy, though that balances the body well. Hops are Simcoe, NS, Citra, Centennial and there is some oily citrus and white grape but I only noticed them when I looked for them - malts still lead. Not that much coffee in the end, but depth of flavor and technically accomplished.

To Ol don't disappoint.

Pours dark brown, one finger tan head, rather bubbly, a thin sticky lace remains.
Smells like mochaccino: creamy chocolate with some sturdy coffee notes. Some caramel and dark fruit, citrus peel, faint toffee, cinnamon and some sneaky hops too.
Big juicy dark fruit in the smell, backed by some coffee acidity, with dark cherries, plums, some faint figs. The hops are really big, fruity and green, fighting it out with the roasted malts (hint of smoke) and the chocolate notes (faint touch of cream), popping here and there with a zingy leafiness. Big bitter finish, considering the hops and the extra roasted coffee bean.
Medium body, big carbonation, really pickly and sadly, burpy. Hops dominate the aftertaste, a small note of strong coffee and some roast too, chocolate. No big difference when it warms.
Personally i could have enjoyed it more if it was more balanced. Great for the (extreme) hop fans, will not deliver for the chocolate-loving crowd.

Brownish red body capped with a thick, chunky, rocky, light tan head; persistent and sticky. Rich, warm sugar and caramel nose; toffee; very faint coffee and cream. Coffee grounds and chocolate flavors with a bitter and acidic edge plus a smooth, sugary backbone. Heavy bodied; semi-dry; creamy and rich mouthfeel.

An extremely satisfying coffee and chocolate imbued ale. Bold and rich throughout, capturing the mochaccino character dead-on. A fine alternative for anyone looking for something along the lines of a Russian imperial stout.

A- dark cherrywood, ruby red hue with a light cookie dough color that dissipates quickly

S- light nutty malt flavor with some light coffee roast notes

T- flavor is balanced blend of nutty malt and light coffee roast

M- fairly carbonated and dry, doesn't lend much at all to the beer

O- Easy to drink and the alcohol is well hidden, but flavor wise there isn't much going on for me, I really love coffee beers and there's just too much balance for my liking

Poured into an 8oz. glass an amber brown with a thinner light beige head atop.Aromas are nutty with caramel-like sweetness over roast.Chocolate and caramel sweetness on the palate with a decent drying nuttiness in the finis,all along a big roasty base.Iam not sure if I could drink alot of this beer but in small amounts it's great,sweet but not overly sweet with good roast.

A 330ml bottle with no visible BB date. Acquired a while back from Beeritz in Leeds. The list of ingredients suggests that this is a coffee-infused milk stout (or something).

Poured into a Delirium chalice. Bottle conditioned. A dark reddish-brown that appears almost black in the glass. Chunky sediment is visible, along with good carbonation. Yields a massive head of creamy beige foam with decent retention; this slowly reduces to a surface layer. Nice lacing. An intense aroma of coffee; rich roasted beans burst forth, accompanied by hints of burnt grain, dark malt, cocoa, mild molasses, faint dried fruit and earthy yeast. Super coffee smell!

Tastes of roasted coffee and dark malt with a bitter finish. Notes of intense coffee, burnt grain, roasted malt, raw cocoa, mild molasses, a hint of liquorice, dried fruit and earthy yeast. Faintly sweet, with a whisper of funkiness in the background. A strident bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, rich and tingly, with well-judged carbonation and a creamy body. Pretty astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of deeply bitter coffee and roasted malt.

Nice one; a full-on flavour experience. It looks great, with a powerful aroma/flavour that overwhelms the senses with coffee notes and roasted malt. Good body. The coffee crowds out everything else but it doesn't matter - this is a quality brew. Definitely one for coffee lovers. Well-rounded and delicious; I heartily commend this beer. Grab it if you see it.
