Bend Brewing Co Canadian Coldfront
What the brewers say
"Brewed with over 4 lbs per barrel of fire roasted Sumatra from Bend’s Bohemian Roastery and maple wood smoked malt from Skagit Valley Malting, Canadian Coldfront is loaded with intense coffee notes of silky bittersweet chocolate and a faint sweet smoky finish. What a way to ride, oh what a way to go."
What our panel thought
“Cold brew coffee-forward in the aroma. Coffee-soaked malt notes with dark fruit and light vanilla coat the palate, with a touch of smoke lingering. Well-balanced finish with a lingering bitterness that cuts through the residual sweetness.”
What our editors thought
“Huge coffee notes in the nose strike a general ‘coffee’ tone. The sip is drier than might be expected, but the bit of malt sweetness amplifies the lightly sweet latte approach.”
