Bridge Brewing Company Uganda Sipi Coffee Brew American Brown Ale at 6.1% ABV (C$6.54 at Willow Park Wine & Spirits, 650 ml, no bottle date or best before, reviewed 20-Mar-2016)

Appearance: clear deep amber with one finger of light beige head, good retention and patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: astringent coffee, toasted bread, light citrus, nutty. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, mild bitter and light tart finish. (3/5)

Not doing it for me. The coffee is both overwhelming and astringent – think overextracted coffee grounds. Underneath that seems to be a nice light brown ale with some light tart, but those coffee grounds just swamp it. (12/20)
