On Friday the 28th of 2014 Hanger 24 in Redlands released a single Twin Engine Cask that was tapped at 4pm. This beer featured their Alt-Bier Amber Ale with additions of Augie’s Ethiopian Roast Coffee.
The Appearance of the beer is copper colored, with a moderate, off-white head.
The Aroma of this beer is like of toast, green grape, apple, chamomile, brown sugar, a malt aroma with a barely-there hint of caramel.
This beer is light with the coffee being very mellow. The coffee notes of berry and cocoa nibs come through with the hops tasting of lemon grass not being overpowering. There is a tartness about this beer that almost feels like a light brewed nitro coffee with little carbonation and a creamy mouth feel. Continuing to drink this the berry notes come out as blackberry and the carmel notes of the beer. At the end of this beer the tartness of the hops is the key player with the coffee flavors mostly gone. There is a flavor of radish , salt, cardamom, and mint that does come through if you sip this and let it develop in your mouth.
