Draft at coasters: pours a nice dark brown with some hazelnut high lights, small tan head. Flavor us a fantastic mellow coffee with a nice hint of chocolate and a sutle roast. Fantastic flavor of coffee one of the best i have had. Aroma is a soft chocolate and a gentle toast and nice coffee. A very well done beer.

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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
