Very smooth, almost like drinking brown ale flavored coffee, only this is the opposite. Not earth shattering but respectable. My second beer of 2011, thanks neighbor; code name for her will be Wisconsin Beer Angel.

On-tap at the pub as part of a taster... Pours a bright amber/copper color that is very clear. Much clearer and lighter in color than I would imagine of any beer called Cubano Espresso, making me think of a coffee color. A nice tan head, good retention and lacing... The aroma is really sweet, caramel with tons of fresh coffee. I really like this... The taste is really good, coffee forward for sure but the coffee the notes are sweet with lots of caramel and chocolate. Really smooth to drink with a hint of vanilla. This was the shock of our taster and well worth trying. A big improvement on maduro.

This beer poured brown with a little head. Smells of coffee, malt, and sweet cream. It tastes like coffee and milk chocolate with some malt. very good beer, bitter sweet and a smooth finish. Would drink this for breakfast if it was socially acceptable.

12oz bottle. Pours a deep coffee brown with a 2 finger thick off white head. Great nose of spicy espresso beans, toasted malts and a bit of cocoa. Big bitter coffee flavor with assertive espresso bitterness in the finish. Another awesome brew from CC.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2011 To date this is the greatest beer I have tasted. It was something special. I would say this isnt really a beer drinkers beer but it has an amazing tasted. If starbucks brewed a beer this is what they would want it to taste like. I had this one on tap at the brewery and it helped to make my trip there unforgetable. This beer was amazing. It pours a kind of light but yet dark brown colour. very light carbination. at the front it tastes of espresso and it finishes with a light maltyness a bit of caramel notes in there. It was the prefect mix of espresso and beer tastes, which are my 2 favorite drinks, could be why I liked it so much. If your ever able to try this and havent it is very much worth the try. I was very sadly unable to find any bottles of this on my trip to florida, although that may have been a good thing because I would have bought as much as I could find.

Bottle. Pours brown with a nice off-white head. Aroma of milk chocolate, nuts, vanilla, and yes some coffee/espresso. Flavor is very espresso heavy with a bit a chalky chocolate component and a nice chicory note. Very good.

If it’s not gonna be a hoppy brown ale, might as well make it a coffee brown ale. Seriously. Not that we can get Cubano-Style Espresso Brown Ale in Charleston anyway, but my other favorite Brown, the hop beast from Duck-Rabbit, is also nowhere to be found in this part of SC. Why must we suffer from a lack of good browns? Can’t even get Dogfish Brown. Stupid distributors. Anyway, this beer rocks. Coffee is good. Brown ale is good. Coffee brown ale is good.

12oz bottle my brother picked up while in Tampa, thanks Jeff! Pours a deep, hazed, brown colored body with some amber highlights. Finger-width, dense and frothy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is lightly toasted caramels and pungent, but not overpowering espresso. Pretty fresh smelling coffee too. Nuts, some grain, spice, a light earth, a touch of ashy cocoa, and a hint of vanilla. Flavor is similar. Soft and fresh, bitter espresso up front with a light cocoa and some lightly toasted caramels. More nuts and grain along with a light earthy spice follows. Nutty vanilla grows slightly into the finish as does some roast and earthy spice. Coffee mellows a bit allowing a light earthy bitterness and lightly sweetened caramel and cocoa to come out more. Finishes smooth and slowly dries before leaving a fairly lengthy aftertaste. Medium-light, very smooth body with a soft, medium, somewhat creamy carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid brown. Very easy drinking and well balanced. I like the light earthy spice and not at all overpowering espresso bitterness blending well with the cocoa and caramel. Good one.
