UPDATED: APR 1, 2014 Bottle from a trade. Pours a lighter brown color with a nice head. Faint coffee and caramel smells. Coffee bean flavors really pop out in the taste. Cocoa flavors really linger on. Very drinkable. Great for the style not being my favorite.

Pour is ruby with a brown hue and a thin tan head. Nose is assertive clean coffee, moderate vanilla, decent roast, little malt profile, mostly adjunct. Flavor is similar but really thin and watery, slightly heavier roast, flavors are fairly enjoyable if it wasn’t watered down, still mostly adjunct and very little base beer. Light bodied, soft carb, smooth feel.

12 oz can shared by Spencer. The pour is a medium brown with some great ruby notes poking through. The head is a film of light khaki floating on top. The aroma is fantastic. There is great hazelnut notes to go along with vanilla and cocoa. There are some strong green pepper notes from fresher coffee. Very good. The flavor is really good. There is coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and a touch of nuttiness. It's really solid. The mouth feel is light, even for a brown, but there is a decent carbonation and a thin quick aftertaste. Flavors are vanilla and coffee

Can to glass. Pours a medium to deep brown color with a light tan head. Aroma is absolutely fantastic! Filled with coffee, chocolate, touch of vanilla, with a nice toasty backbone. Flavor is a bit less potent, and has more focus on the brown ale toastiness with a slight vanilla finish. Over a very well balanced and delicious beer. Thanks Eric!

Awful beer, if you can call it that. Taste is overpowering vanilla, sugar, really filthy. Not more than a cheap novelty, this should be given a wide, wide berth. Ugly artwork completes the job.

Deep mahogany color out of the can with a thin beige head. Nose of chocolate covered coffee beans. Big coffee flavor with lots of chocolate notes, vanilla and a bit of ash in the finish. This is a big, sweet coffee beer.
