If that name doesn’t temp you then I sure hope this write up does!

Dark Brown with a reddish tint, and a foamy creamy tan head, it has a sweet hazlenut nose, with a beautifully luxurious, silky texture.

The ‘coffee’ in the name is slightly misleading as the coffee taste is consigned to the background, whilst vanilla, and nutty notes burst on the palate.

It’s quite heavy going due to the strong flavours, but despite the creamy taste, it has a suprisingly dry finish which leaves you looking forward to the next gulp!

Don’t expect to be able to sink a few of these but I reckon you loosen your belt, put on your Christmas jumper and glug down this sumptuous ale.

Yummy
