12 oz bottle, best by 02/08/17. Pours clear ruby amber with a big fluffy light tan head that retains well and leaves little lacing.

The aroma is sweet fudgy roast coffee with some ash.

The flavor is sweet acidic nutty chocolate malt with some roast coffee and a medium bitter roast finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a nice coffee beer but a little too acidic.

12oz bottle from the local grocery. Brownish pour with a touch of red. Big sweet espresso nose. Some lactose. Some caramel. Unfortunately the taste is thin; some coffee, some caramel, tangy fruit. Bummer how it fades. Maybe medium bodied. Maybe lighter. 13.4

Bottle. Pours a clear brown with a high, fine-grained, blown-insulation, lacy tan head. Nose is coffee, cinnamon, vanilla, chocolate, roasted meat, and bourbon. Dry and coffee-bitter on the tongue, then with a little molasses sweetness; hollow on the mid-palate. Thereís just not a lot of substantiality to this; itís too mild and too one-dimensional. Itís all coffee and not much else. Finish is dark and ashy. Meh.

Brown with thick tan head. Aroma and flavor are robust earthy roasted coffee and caramel. Had next to Sleepless City...nose equal, body about the same but a touch fuller. More bitterness here, and while the coffee is good, itís not Modern Times good.

Light color, medium body. Light roasted coffee, light roasted malts, light earthy hops. A bit nutty, some sweetness. Medium finish of.... Yep, coffee. Not too bad ...

Light brown pour, finger of off white stuff at the top. Nose is malt and coffee. Bittersweet. Middle is mocha and malt. Leaves with a nutty character, clipped by a nice mild coffee finish.

StefanSD (2387) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown with a medium beige head that has good retention and ample sticky lacing. The aroma is bold coffee and coffee grounds. The taste, like the aroma, is all coffee, and it is big and bold coffee. The palate is full and smooth, the finish is long and a bit astringent. Overall: This is perhaps the perfect breakfast beer. As a coffee lover I really enjoyed this. But, the coffee was lacking in subtle nuances in taste and aroma that would make it a top shelf, best in class type of beer.

The coffee is not too overdone, so I like it. At the end of the day itís still a delicious brown ale.
