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.

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.
