12 oz. bottle. Pours a deep ruby red with a thin off white head. Aroma is heavy on the coffee with some malt. Taste is the same - very bitter coffee taste with a dry finish. If you're a fan of coffee, you'll love this one.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Has to be a top rankimg beer again. Only coffee tastes more like coffee. Deep and almost imperial style in flavor. Bitter notes as if biting in the beans themselves.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
8oz pour at Alís of Hampden pours a clear amber with zero head. Nose has all coffee, mild caramel, brown sugar, but just lots of Folgerís. Flavor has more sugar than the nose lets on, caramel, brown sugar and... coffee. Some rootbeer too. Sweet finish.

On tap. Pours a ruddy brown color with a medium white head. The aroma is big malty aroma with huge coffee. This is a great beer: massive coffee, milky, big grains, oatmeal, light toast. Great.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a caramel-brown color with a medium sized foamy beige head faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was brewed coffee, a bit of vanilla, malty and somewhat sweet. The flavor was bad brewed coffee. Other flavors tried to come through but kept getting squashed by the overbearing bad brewed coffee presence. Unfathomably long finish - which in this case was not a good thing. Medium body. Not good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle pour..light brown color with almost no head..nose is hazelnut soaked coffee beans with a chaser of vanilla..light-medium bodied not overly dominant with the oatmeal, coffee or the nuts, but does seem to leave a lingering hazelnut taste on the palate, feels like my cold press coffee took a bath in some oatmeal stout..chuck in some nutty character and you have this brown ale..if you like brown ales this might be up your alley? sightly sweet finish...
