Share This Review

Panic Attack Café Cubano is a Belgian-style Strong Dark Ale brewed by Holy Mackerel Small Batch Beers, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a tulip glass from a bottle.

Appearance

The ale pours a rust-orange hue and topped by a thin white head that dissipates quickly. The reduction doesn’t leave behind any lace or residue.

Aroma

The aromatics are strong with a scent of coffee and grain.

Flavor

Sugary on the front end that finds a better balance with flavors of light Cuban coffee roast and booze. Sweet aftertaste.

Mouthfeel

Its feel is smooth with nearly a full body and moderate carbonation. Finishes astringent.

Overall

Its appearance is disappointing. And while more carbonation is expected of the style, its rich feel supports the concept adequately. Otherwise, the Café Cubano is still an enjoyable brew. It’s a little too sweet but that roast flavor is one that coffee lovers will certainly appreciate.
