16 oz. can. Pours a murky brown. Smells of strong nutty coffee. Brown malts and a hint of vanilla. Tastes of coffee, brown malts, some milk chocolate, and again a small amount of vanilla. Low bitterness. Medium body. Kinda roasty in the aftertaste. Smelled nice, but it doesn’t really pan out.

Served on tap at the brewpub. This is a dark brown color with a thin tan head. The nose is all coffee, and there is a ton of it. There's a touch of malt sweetness coming through in the taste, but again, the coffee takes over throughout the finish. Very interesting, but was hoping for a bit more here.

Poured from 32-ounce growler into a standard pint. I didn't see anything "pale" about the appearance of this. It pours a deep brown color, virtually lightproof, with dark tan highlights and a thick, dark tan head. That said, it seems to fit the style description very well. It is quite malty, with lots of caramel, dark bread, prune, and raisin on the nose and palate and some tart black cherry and understated bitterness on the finish. Despite the appearance, it is light-bodied and crisp. Overall, a very good beer, delicious and drinkable.

This was a come from behind winner during our two hour long tasting session at the brewpub.

Belloq pours a dark mahogany, with a soft tan head.

Big, powerful nutty coffee aromas and flavors are present in this well carbonated, super soft and fluffy brew. There is also a touch of yeasty spice, and some caramel notes as well.

While unique in its own way, we found this very close to Cafe Silk Porter, which is meant as a big compliment for a brewery that doesn't really make a name for itself for the darker, heavier styles.

O - This beer reminded me a lot of an iced coffee. There was a bit of sweetness in it, but the beer is overwhelmingly coffee from start to finish. If you're looking for a coffee flavored beer, I'd recommend going for a stout or porter. This wasn't bad, but the flavors weren't terribly complex and the mouthfeel was a little thin.
