The last time I tried a coffee-flavoured beer, it was Half Pints' Stir Stick Stout. Trying to stick with Canadian beers (as per a request), the beer I'm trying comes from Toronto. It comes in a 341mL thin brown bottle, with 5.5% alcohol/vol. The bottle claims to have coffee added, which makes me a bit uneasy.
When opened, I could immediately smell hops and (unsurprisingly enough) coffee. It poured an exceptionally opaque shade of brown, with a deep tan head. Its aroma had changed after the pour to something more malty.
The first sip was fairly good. The beer was only slightly bitter, and had a strong sweetness to it. The coffee flavour was more of an aftertaste; subdued and quite pleasant (kind of like in a coffee crisp). The feel in the mouth was exceptionally soft. I liked this beer much more than Half Pints' coffee stout, if only because it wasn't as strong.
