13. Coffee Beer

Coffee Beers are pale to black depending on the underlying style. Clear or hazy appearance is acceptable. Coffee beers use coffee in any form. Coffee character should be apparent as the defining attribute of this style, ranging from subtle to intense, and should be in harmony with other attributes of the underlying beer. Hop aroma and flavor are low to high depending on the underlying style. Hop bitterness varies with underlying beer. Medium-low to medium malt sweetness provides balance with coffee flavor and aroma. Fruity esters are typical of underlying beer style. Other flavors arising from the use of flavored coffee may also be present. Body is variable with underlying style. Stout and Porters made with coffee could be categorized as Coffee Beer.To allow for accurate judging the brewer must provide additional information about the entry including the beer style of underlying base beer, coffee(s) and processes used ("medium roast cold extract in bright beer tank" for example), type of flavored coffee ("Cinnamon Coffee" for example) if used, and any other special ingredients and processes if used. When the base beer does not conform to any existing style in this guideline, brewer may indicate "out of existing style". Beer entries not accompanied by this information will be at a disadvantage during judging.
