Tootsie Roll brown beer with a foamy tan head that sets up in peaks. Pleasant nose of light roast coffee, brown sugar, and nutmeg. Prominent coffee flavor up front, including a coffee bitterness, which then develops into a longer lasting hop bitterness. Under notes of milk chocolate, vanilla, and wood create a semi-sweet beer overall. Lightly carbonated with a creamy mouth feel this is an enjoyable beer with good flavor and some unique characteristics. Would definitely drink this again.

Poured a brownish color from the bottle, aromas of roast, light chocolate, and some coffee. Flavors are the same, light and thin on the plate, I wanted a little more from this beer but decent overall.

Bottle @ Casa de Greg, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Holy fucken balls, the foam is out of control on this slut. No apparent sign of infection in the nose. Hazy brown appearance. Slight metallic, cola, caramel, a bit sweet, lightly roasted coffe aroma. A bit twangy, milk chocolate, mocha, light coffee, earthy, creamy flavor with a soft yeast presence. Pretty good but not as good as some of their releases.

hazy chestnut, thin cream head. Light almond and coffee hints, sugary but balanced. Sweet flavor, more coffee and stinging sugar. Overly sweet but moderate balance.

750 ml Smokestack series bottle. Pours brown cola color with a very large foamy frothy khaki head that last, but eventually settles to a film. Aroma has roasted malt some molasses and dark fruit with the coffee fighting through. Taste has nice strong black coffee roasted malt some sweet cream and chocolate subtle bitterness and spice with alcohol on the finish. Palate is thin fizzy and warming. Really taken by surprise with this one, really nice!
