Draught at Fate Brewing. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with coffee, hops, citrus, mango and roasted malts. Bitter finish with hops, coffee abd citrus. Very nice speciality brew, although overly dominated by coffee aroma.

Poured from tap to glass. Clear straw hue with white head. Aroma is coffee, citrus, pine, straw, honey. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium light body and good carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness with a nice bitter astringent finish. Overall this is a great brew with fantastic coffee flavor.

Savor 2014 - Aroma really up front with coffee, nice amount of bitterness. I could use something like this more often.

Tap at Savor. Never had anything like this before. The nose was hops and coffee. The flavor was much the same, everything in perfect balance. Very enjoyable.

Very well done with the coffee, really retains the aroma and taste of properly brewed coffee. Nose is big Vanilla coffee and hops. Tastes great, one of the best coffee beers I’ve had. Good stuff.

Tap. Pours clear orange with white head. Smells like coffee, like a sweet latte. Has a very vanilla, coffee flavor, a touch of bitterness. Tastes crazy, really unique and really fun!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear rustic golden with a thin white ring of head. Aroma is odd, like earthy dark roast coffee mixed with fresh leafy hops and grapefruit resin, perhaps a bit of Mexican chocolate sweet pepperiness as well. Taste is nicely bitter on a full body, featuring leafy resiny grapefruity hops, mellowed by a roasty earthy coffee undertone throughout. When I burp its definitely hoppy and floral, but in the palate there’s definitely a little coffee and dark berries.

Gold pour white head. Coffee and hops, light malt bill. I like the idea, but I am not sure I like the coffee chosen, but still not bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clean and expressive coffee bean and coffee liqueur aroma with little to no hop expression (or maybe it’s just difficult to pick out for me). Appearance is amber to brown so I maybe there is a pinch of roast in here but I doubt it, seems more like a mid cara malt but honestly, I don’t get much malt flavor or aroma due to the coffee addition. Fizzy carbonation, chewy texture, light to medium body, medium+ sweetness, med-to-high bitterness and med-to-high acid. Little intrigue for me, but at least it’s clean.
