3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Cola pour with a filmy light tan head. Nose is caramel mixed with nutty, light roast coffee. There’s a little milkiness and vanilla in there too. Taste is similar, with the coffee and roasty malt taking center stage and the vanilla milkiness on the finish. It’s a little bitter for my tastes and the 9% heat really comes through on the finish. But it’s pleasant and isn’t a style you see every day. I love seeing beers like this become shelf beers--what a lovely beer world we live in!

On tap at Brunzies. Nice sweet coffee aroma, like a piece of coffee candy - very nice aromatics. Dark brown clear with thin creamy lacing off-white head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Sweet with tons of coffee flavor and a sugary pop. Bit nutty sweet coffee finish and lingering sweet coffee after. Almost cloying.
