savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Draft from the latest batch. Clear light brown with a small light tan head. Aroma of doughy malt, coffee, nuts and light cocoa. Flavor is more doughy malt, robust coffee and rich malt. Medium body with a soft, smooth mouth fee. Really nice beer, very malty all around but the coffee adds a nice balance and drinkability.

nakedwhendrunk (2199) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Picked up a growler at Breeze In/Lemon Creek location, here goes: The appearance is somewhat dark brown colored body with a slight transparency to the body, no head whatsoever no matter how many times I pour it, no worries, its all good, barely any lacing; the aroma has so much coffee in front of all of the malts, nuts, and chocolate, the taste is a smooth sort of Chocolate coffee flavoring, somewhat like someone poured the creamer in the coffee and then poured it in the brew, hmmm ... ok, no worries, its all good for the most part, its very easy on the palate and there is nothing obscure overall, good coffee forward English Brown Ale, I’m just wondering how everyone before me has had this when this thing doesn’t leave the Juneau area, hmmm ... make me wonder.... sidenote: made with the efforts of the local coffee company Heritage.

A delicious coffee nut brown with a smooth finish. The integration of a local coffee roaster is great.

Had this on tap in Seattle. Clear brownish ale with good head and lacing. Interesting balance of coffee/ nutty notes without bitterness. Very kikeable brown ale.

Dogbrick (8269) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2008
Sample in the Alaskan tap room. This beer is a mostly clear brownish-amber color with a medium beige head that has decent retention. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt and nuts. Medium, smooth body with roasted coffee, malt and caramel flavors with some hops in the background. The finish is mild coffee with a lingering roastiness. Pretty good overall.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 18, 2008
on tap @ Humpy’s - I was excited when I heard they were releasing this again. I thought I might never have a chance to try it. Pours a amberish brown color, with some ruby highlights, and a small creamy head. Slightly roasted malty aroma, with some caramel highlights, and a bit of malty sweetbness, followed by some coffee roastiness that I found to be somewhat tame, I was expecting a little more robust bitterness. A decent effort.

TomDecapolis (4501) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUL 9, 2007
On tap at Humpy’s. Confirmed three times by the bar tender that this was a beer made by Alaskan Brewing Co. Was surprised since I had not hear of it before. Pours a translucent ruby amber/brownish with a smaller off white lacing head. Aroma of coffee ice cream, some malty sweetness, light roasted malts. Flavor of the same with more nuttiness, hints of coffee, malty sweet yet on the thin side.
