I just really don't think coffee belongs in beers that aren't stouts.

Thanks to Jeff for this one. Indeed is quickly becoming one of my favorites. 750ml foiled and capped bottle into a Founders snifter. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a rich, 1 finger light cream colored head with good retention. Beer is a cloudy dark mahogany. Lacing is stringy and spotty with good stick and oily, thin legs. Decent looking.

Nose is coffee, spice, toffee, molasses and cream. Like an iced espresso.

Opens iced coffee, sweet milk, toffee, cream, nutmeg, cardboard and bark. A little strange. Like an iced coffee but awkwardly spicy and milky. A like it but this is a little out there.

Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth in the mouth and goes down soft and warm. Finishes slightly messy with a clean finish.

A decent beer overall but I really like the chocolate, fudge, and roast complement to coffee... which this lacks. Very unique but I'm not sure I'd revisit this one.

S: Smelled slightly of coffee but mostly had a roasty malt aroma.
T: Tasted strongly of coffee and roasted malts, like the smell.
M: Had a smooth mouthfeel.
O: a good coffee beer but not my favorite, I would have again and I would recommend.

This is a lower alcohol beer, coming in at 5.1% ABV and 15 IBU. Indeed has paired with local Northeast Minneapolis neighbor Dogwood Coffee to make this particular beer. It is infused with ground Colombia El Meridiano coffee before being finished with cold brewed Dogwood NEON. I've been pretty happy with Indeed's beers and love their Northeast taproom, so I was happy to get to try this one. The namesake for this beer is the burr grinder, a coffee grinder thought by most coffee aficianados to be the best. I have cheaper model at home and it certainly improves the coffee consistency versus the blade grinder I used to use. The beer comes in a 750 ml bottle with an attractive design and wax-dipped top.

Aroma: Bright light roast coffee aroma up front with a bit of sweet malt and caramel. No hop aroma. Fairly subtle overall.

Appearance: Pours a ruby to nearly brown color with excellent clarity. A fine off-white head that is od medium size.

Flavor: Strong coffee flavor at the start and really is present throughout the whole tasting process. Some malt sweetness and toffee flavors balance the astringency of the roasted beans. This is a lighter bodied beer with an off-dry finish.

Overall: A good use of coffee as the star of this beer. The coffee is fresh and bright tasting without the burnt character that often accompanies the style. A well balanced creation and very drinkable.
