This beer began as an Imperial oatmeal brown. Free Will’s brewer liked it but felt it either needed to be toned down, or have something added. One Village espresso roast coffee was cold-brewed, Kimberton brand coffee, added after fermentation and magic was born.

On tap @ KBF. Pours a dark cloudy brown with a thin beige head. Aroma has a big sweet coffee essence with some caramel and maple undertones. Taste is sweet caramel and maple under a light coffee flavor and a bit of mild espresso bitterness. Medium smooth and creamy body, good carbonation and slight sticky mouth feel.

Bottle at Eulogy. Dark clear brown pour with no head at all. Refined coffee liquor. Medium-dark caramels. Ghosts of red fruit. Tastes like a watery (but very good) coffee cocktail - not much like a beer. Kudos though for getting an 8.3% ABV to feel effortless.

It’s OK. The coffee is strong, but good. I think this beer is actually a nicer coffee than it is beer...the quality of the coffee is high, the beer itself is nice, but the coffee overwhelms any beer that is present and makes it more like an alcoholic coffee shop drink. Which, is cool, but not necessarily the best beer thing.

Pour is a clear caramel brown with a small amount of tan head. Nose is slightly overly roasted coffee, roasted malts, faint sticky caramel, a bit thin. Taste is the same, it has a bit of a cola flavored coffee, overly roasted malt, a touch acrid, moderate bitterness, overly carbonated and stings the throat.

Draft at smiling chameleon. Pours dark brown but has a thinning hairline if you know what I mean with a really thin khaki head. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Has some solid coffee notes on the nose. Definitely get the coffee on the tongue. There’s a little slickness on the tongue but the oatmeal seems to come out bigger if the beer is served on nitro which this one wasn’t. Didn’t get a lot of the brown ale element. Finish lingers a bit. Eh!

nice mouthfeel real liquid and smooth with a little syrup. good stronger flavor of coffee with the cream and sugar and bit of roast, yet still beery enough and not all hoppy or malty to as if a mish mash brew. bit of vanilla rum in the flavor mostly alcohol and perhaps almond.

Macegan75 (766) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Draft at RR. Pours slightly opaque brown with little head that fades quickly. Aroma is brown malt and coffee grinds. First sip is sweet like the last sip of coffee with sugar, mild unmalted barley with a mild bitter finish between the hops and coffee. Nice beer

Leafs93 (1945) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Pours amber/brown with a small tan head that quickly dissipated. Aroma is espresso, dark chocolate and roast. Taste is sweet with moderate coffee bitters. Medium bodied, some warming on the finish and oily texture. Very solid.

Sample at GABF 10/04/2014, thanks to my BIL for assistance with note-taking. Clear amber-brown color with a thin light beige head that recedes steadily. Strings of lace. Aroma of coffee and malt. Medium body with flavors of roasted coffee, malt and slight fruit. The finish is roasty with a coffee aftertaste. Decent overall.

This one poured a medium brown with a beige head. Aroma was of.coffee, and caramel. Flavor similar, fresh big coffee. One dimensional but tasty.
