On nose - fresh, unroasted coffee beans, darker malts. Pours deep reddish ambery with off-white top, min lasing. Taste - malt(simple and good) sweetness with coffee roast bitter, to me almost no from hopping. Interesting mix, equally mixed, no overwhelming aspect. Medium body, quite thick texture, light dry finish. Weird but interesting flavor mix of fresh coffee beans and roast bitter.

Thanks to Nick for this. Pours deep brown with a moderate dark brown head. Aroma is coffee, nut and slight caramel. Taste is silky smooth, rich roasted malts, intense coffee and sweet caramel.

First impression was green coffee beans. .a lots of them. Then comes quite intense maltiness, bit roasted malts, caramel, coffee. Some fruitiness with decent hop balance. Bit dry finish.
Really enjoyable brew with no weakness for brown ale

Tap at Hop Revolution 2013. Nose came across as just coffee, which I didn’t dig so much. Nice malt flavor kicks in, though, with caramel and chocolate going with the coffee. Good body. Rich and malty. An interesting, somewhat different coffee beer.

Tap @ Hoprevolution Vol.2. Aroma is full of caramel, sweet wig fruit - and actually not too much coffee. Well, maybe a bit. Coffee-chocolate. Caramel pudding. You can feel coffee creme cake and some more coffee chocolate in the taste. At the end there is espresso, a nice espresso, coming through and dominating the taste. Maybe this is the best coffee beer that I have ever had. Aftertaste is long, full of coffee and malt sweetness. With some hops of course. This beer is made for sipping, not for gulping.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2014 Very burnt coffee taste and aroma but nice floral happiness underneath characteristic of 8wired beers. Interesting. Nice cloudy brown color with nutty head. Taste is chocolate, nuttiness, burnt coffee and hops underneath it all. If the burnt coffee taste was a bit less prominent, or a bit less burnt tasting, this would be delicious.

Nice brown-red colour that looks almost like root beer. Smell starts out very strong roasted coffee which gradually becomes raisin-y. Taste is very burnt coffee with good nutty hoppiness. Medium body. Nice ale with lots of coffee but wish it were slightly leas burnt-tasting.

Bottle. Copper pour, small tan head, little retention/lace. Aroma of big green apple, green coffee, onion, light chocolate, light toffee. Taste is moderately bitter, green coffee, toffee, light green apple. Palate is average carbonation, slick, light bitter finish. Beside the acetaldehyde, I’m guessing this was an old bottle.
