“Smooth, Nitro Coffee Brown Ale. Brewed using a fresh cold brew. The blend is comprised of naturally processed coffees from Ethiopia and Brazil, one fruit-driven and the other creamy AF. To serve… Cool can, shake well, vertical pour!”
Glassware: English Pint.
Appearance: Very cool. We love the novelty of a good nitro beer (especially when they work properly – as this one did). As the creamy foam transforms into liquid it displays an attractive chestnut brown and a solid three finger head which looks to be settled in for the long haul.
Aroma: Semi rich and nutty malts hit the olfactory’s first. Toast, sweet caramels and toffee follow close behind. Only now does the coffee begin to come through. We expected it to be much stronger but the fact it’s so well integrated is a positive. Maple and a splash of dark fruits are buried a little deeper but are certainly there to be found. Liking it.
Flavour: On point for a nitro Brown Ale. Subtle coffee, nutty malts, caramel and toffee on the front palate and the subtle earthy hops, toast and fig then developing through the mid. The coffee is throwing out a few chocolatey and roasty notes as well as it sets up for a smooth, roasty and nutty finish which draws out nicely.
Mouthfeel: Ultra slick, kinda gelatinous and oily texture with medium body. The nitro adds to the overall creaminess and the 5.5% ABV is nicely positioned.
Overall: Big fans of this brewery. They consistently pump out top quality beers which fit their M.O perfectly. Quality nitro beers are just another feather in the hat.
