3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap and snifter served at Lunar Brewing Co., showing a clear, amber tinged, brown color, with a modest amount of off white/light tan, quickly diminishing head foam, and spotty lacing. The aroma was espresso-like, roasted coffee, smooth but light toasted nuttiness to the malt, and subtle hop spiciness. The moderate hop bitterness in the flavor was somewhat hidden by the fresh coffee notes. There was also a touch of sweetness and a little tartness detected. Although served a bit cold, alcohol warmth grew as it warmed. A tasty brew that showcased the coffee well.

It poured a clear brown color with a beige head. The aroma was of huge coffee with some nuttiness and toffee. The taste was a beer version of a coffee with cream and caramel. Very well done.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On the plus side, this beer lives up to its name with coffee. On the negative side it doesn’t much resemble beer to me. Pour reddish bronze with a large tan head. The aroma has lots of coffee, more coffee, some nutty malt, a bit of toast and no noticeable hops. It has a medium body with sharp carbonation. The flavor predictably has a ton of coffee - there is also a bit of caramel and nuttiness in there. The finish has some spiciness and way way too much coffee presence for me. This lives up to the name, but unlike most beers with coffee there is not really anything here to balance with the coffee. Great for coffee drinkers I suppose.

Poured from 750ml bottle at the Beerhive. The coffee is clean, no jalapeno. Caramel, chocolate, coffee. There is nothing really off about this, but it is fairly one dimensional.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml caged and corked bottle, Batch 2013-4, best by 10-2013. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours a dark reddish/brown color with about an inch and a half tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Not surprisingly, the aroma is mostly coffee. There’s also roasted malt, nuts, vanilla and bittersweet chocolate noticeable. It tastes like coffee, roasted malt, dark bread, vanilla, bittersweet chocolate and surprisingly a bit of citrus. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it’s a little creamy and slick with a good amount of carbonation. I liked this coffee brew, definitely worth a try. $12.99 a bottle.

Dark mahogany-amber with a beige head. Aroma of coffee, obviously, toasted rye, caramel, earth, and hazelnut. Taste is rich and sweet, like coffee and caramel flavored ice cream, a touch boozy, and quite bitter. Medium-full bodied.
