Can to glass. Thanks Taylor! Pours a mostly clear golden color with an off white head. Aroma is mild cream ale, subtle coffee. Flavor is a sweet cream soda with a hint of coffee. Deceiving. Very drinkable for 12%.

Can to glass. Pours golden white head. Aroma is mild coffee, sweetness. Taste is super sweet, sugar crush, mild coffee. Very interesting beer, could only drink a little bit of this. 12 oz can split 3 ways.

Can courtesy of SJ. Nothing really stood out with this beer. Some nice notes of roasted malts, coffee and bread. The body was surprisingly thin for 12%. It was ok.

12oz can pours dark cloudy orange with a finger of head. Really interesting beer, blind folded you would swear this was a coffee stout. Lots of big coffee notes obviously, bit boozy, creamy vanilla, milk, sweet, touch of toast and some malt. Finishes sweet, basically tastes exactly like a cup of coffee with cream and sugar-no other real way to describe it. If you like that you will like this, tasty beer!

Well. Itís here. Iíve actually seen enough trades involving this one to the point that I assumed that what weíd have here... wasnít...well... this. But the review aggregate confirms that much. Which.. whatever. On to it - It pours murky gold, with a modest white head into this snifter. Ok. The nose is chalky cream, heavy sweet, mild hop presence, with bitter coffee bean, with biscuits and honey here. The flavor profile... is... slight boozy - but in a coffee / kahlua combo kind of way - Fuse that with mild hop bitter / honey / caramel and you get.... well. an over sweet, over bitter, over boozy, but humorously decent beer in a can. Bravo

Slight malty coffee aroma, with a light golden color. Coffee and the 12% alc hit you first but a nice smooth finish. Itís a great take on the imperial cream ale

Can. Pours hazy amber, medium white head that dissipates fairly quickly with good residual and solid lacing. Aroma is very biscuity, some coffee, honey, a bit odd.. Flavor is hella coffee, heavy sweet and medium bitter. This is like one of those hard candies; coffee all over the place with a carrying biscuity honey like maltiness profile. A lingering coffee grounds kind of ashtray finish. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. I have never tried a beer like this before.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 12 oz can. Aroma is rather sweet with a bit of a malt character. It kind of reminds me of a fresh doughnut. Medium light coffee note, rather fruity with a light nutiness. Pours a hazy orange with a bit of rust. Small, thin white head quickly recedes to the edges where it lingers. Light lacing and fairly long legs. Flavor is fairly sweet with a lot of malt character, both pale cracker malt and corn. The sweetness is a bit like a very sugary drink. Low bitterness with low alcohol spice; the alcohol is well hidden. Medium light coffee character that adds a bit of a fruitiness. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and and medium low alcohol warmth. Overall, an alright beer but it?s pretty sweet and the coffee is not super apparent. The alcohol is well hidden making this easy to drink, but it?s pretty sweet.
