UPDATED: APR 2, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Kevin! Pours a nutty, mahogany brown color with slight clarity, topped with a swampy ecru skin that turns into an actual head when the glass is swirled. Initial aroma has a strange, almost tart dark fruitiness that was throwing me off, but it seems to subside with some warmth/time. Successive inhales bring out rich coffee beans, like sticking your nose into a fresh whole bean bag. Notes of roasted nuts, tobacco, toffee, & dried dark fruits make their way in, too. Taste has a very woodsy essence with a big nuttiness that leads into a huge coffee bean profile. Good mix of roasty & just lightly sweet. Touch of cocoa powder with more coffee & nuts in the finish. Aftertaste has a very slight staleness but nothing too concerning. I know it’s just a brown ale, but a little more creaminess in the body would do this one well. Good flavor for the ABV, not a bad brown at all.

Tasted on 1/13/12 from a bottle. Pours cloudy dark brown with an orange tint and an average tan head that leaves decent lace. The nose is burnt bitter coffee, peanut butter, and dark chocolate. The flavor is peanut butter and chocolate up front, moving to the dark roasted, burnt coffee bitterness. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long bitter coffee and peanut butter finish.

The aroma was not as big as the taste as far as the coffee goes. Delicious beer! Nice refreshing lighter body.

Can at home. Pour is deep brown with a small tan head and good lacing. Roasty, earthy, somewhat grassy, husky, caramel, cookies, and brown malt in the aroma. Taste is bitter cocoa, coffee grounds, light pepper, some vanilla, and cookies with a semi-bitter finish. Light body with medium carbonation. The flavors are definitely there, but the lack of body hurts it. A little too much pepper but still good.

Derek881 (1026) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Poured from a can into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a somewhat cloudy brown-amber color with a slight dark ruby red hue and an average-sized lightly creamy off-white head with modest retention, and light to average cling and lacing. Its aroma featured malty notes with strong scents of coffee, toffee, cacao, and lighter notes of vanilla and some lighter earthy hops. The beer had a sweet coffee and cacao blended flavor with lighter notes of vanilla, toffee, and caramel, and a somewhat roasty effect. It was a fairly wet and liquidy beer with lower carbonation and fizz and a lighter, softer mouthfeel.

Pours a very dark brown. Small off white head dissipates quickly. Smells of chocolate Twizzler, coffee and sweet cream. As it warms it gains a tobacco scent. Taste of chocolate Twizzler, coffee and tobacco. There's a slight creaminess as well from the vanilla bean. Finishes dry. Very good beer.

Can from MeadMe, thanks for the opportunity! Pours a deep ruby brown with minimal quickly disappearing head. Huge freshly ground coffee aromas dominate. Honestly thats all I can find in the aroma. Big coffee flavors with bits of caramel vanilla ans chocolate. Again huge coffee flavors dominate. Great beer flavored iced coffee.

Nice coffee beer. Clear brown pour. Big coffee roast aroma with a little tobacco and chocolate. Sweet coffee taste with just enough body. Fairly light and drinkable for the darker roastier characteristics. Awesome.
