O’hare’s Beer Club April 2014 Box
From Gigantic Brewing out of Portland Oregon USA comes their “Too Much Coffee Man” (beer #17) a Belgian-style black saison with coffee. The beer pours a dark brown colour with a brown head. The aroma consists of coffee, tobacco smoke and roasted malts. The flavour is of tobacco, burnt coffee, smoke, roasted malts, wheat and yeast. The alcohol content comes in at 8.2% with an IBU of 25. I love this brewery but something about this beer just didn’t work for me. Maybe it is my distaste for tobacco but I just didn’t like this one.
Commercial Description: An experiment perfected! This beguiling blend of imperial black saison and custom roasted cold pressed Coava Coffee will have your olfactory zones erongenized and begging for more.
