has got a decent amount of spices and strong coffee flavor, but it lacks any real character, its thin palate and very fizzy that blocks off the flavor of something that could be better.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2010 Draft. Pours a clear reddish tinged brown color with a collared tan head. Nice strong aroma of coffee notes, vanilla, and chocolate with touches of a nutiness that is really nice. The espresso really does take center stage though as it should. Nice roasted espresso coffee notes mixed with bitter chocolate and some bitterness. I also get some vanilla and nut in the flavors at the end. Medium mouthfeel. Pretty easy drinking. Not the best coffee beer I have had but very good.

The aroma definitely has the coffee/espresso quality that you would expect from this one. It also has toasted malt and what seams like brown sugar. The appearance is medium brown with a foamy head that seems appropriate for the style. The taste is like the aroma except the coffee adds some negative acidic taste as well as burnt grounds. The palate is typical for the style. Overall a great smelling beer that does not have the taste to match. Still coffee lovers will probably enjoy this one.

A: Pours a dark chestnut brown with a nice tan head and decent retention. S: Plenty of dark-roasted espresso beans along with hints of chocolate, slightly-roasted malt, and a bit of toffee. T: Loads of crisp espresso and coffee flavors with some chocolate and sweet malt. M: Very nice and creamy with an excellent amount of carbonation. D: Very tasty and goes down very smoothly. Another masterfully-crafted brew from CCB. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 05-05-2010

Mini growler via trade with smith4498 - Pours a dark brown color with a small light tan head that faded pretty quick. Very light spotty lacing. Aroma is coffee and herbal hops. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. The malt and coffee linger in the finish. Medium body. A nice beer. Thanks Jason.

Coffee extreme. A richly coffee’d brown ale similar to their Coco Loco but with insanely more coffee.... like a coffee stout... almost like a cold espresso.

Thanks to Kan for this pour! Brown orange with a white head. Ashy nose old malts some old coffee. Too much old coffee ashiness. Malty chocolate ashy coffee sweetness. Dry bitter finish. I think I might be over critical of coffee beers, this one’s not great, but not bad. 7/47/3/14

DeLand, Fl - on tap - Abbey. Dark brown pour, extremely thick creamy mocha colored head. Fresh, green aroma - pick up a lot of peppers and black coffee. Flavor is very rich with lots of earthy notes. Pick up the same peppery notes, some chicory coffee, perhaps a bit of licorice. Very flavorful and bold. Thick, chewy mouthfeel.

Draft. Clear brown body. Frothy, big-bubbled, off-white head. Enticing aroma of espresso, roasted malts, milk chocolate along with grapefruit and floral hops. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, creamy texture and livecly carbonation. Nice coffee taste backed with chocolate, nuts and vanilla.
