From Bridge Brewing out of North Vancouver comes their new”Uganda Sipi Coffee Brown Ale” using coffee roasted at Moja Coffee in North Van. The beer pours a deep brown colour with a brown head. The aroma consists of coffee, chocolate, earth, roasted malts with a creamy and sweet finish. The flavour is of chocolate, bitter coffee, roasted malts and earth. The alcohol content comes in at 6.1% with an IBU of 28. This beer is very good! Not only will it wake you up with the caffeine in coffee but it will delight your taste buds at the same time.
Mike brought me a coffee brown ale Called Uganda Sipi from Bridge Brewing in trade for the Moody/Fuggles Pear Kolsch.
It pours nicely dark, almost more like a stout dark brown. The head look like a nitrogen head with very fine bubble and a dark tan colour.
The nose give coffee and grain in equal measure, mostly dark malts with dark chocolate notes.
In the mouth is where this beer really shines, starting with a creamy mouthfeel followed by a subtly tingly carbonation and then a milky coffee flavour rolls in. The coffee fades behind a malted chocolate flavour and then everything fades to a nice hot chocolate flavour.
