COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer began as an Imperial oatmeal brown. Free Willís 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.

Tasty coffee beer - more brown ale than stout. Somewhat thin in the mouthfeel. Lots of coffee finish and flavor.

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.

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.

douglas88 (6010) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 26, 2014
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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4919) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2014
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.

Draft. Dark brown body with hits of Orange and nice ring in a shifter. Aroma of nuts and caramel. Flavor is caramel, malt, nuts and a lingering coffee taste.

Draft at Holy Hound. Hazy brown color. Intense cocoa powder aroma. Taste is burnt licorice, burnt espresso, chocolate. Nice.

HeadyDE (502) - Delaware, USA - AUG 16, 2014
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...

Chocolate and not bitter, tasty and not heavy. This is a delicious oatmeal stout. I would drink this consistently, but not more than a couple a night. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jcartamdg (1982) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Pours a light brown with no head. Aroma of coffee and sweet caramel malt. Taste is very sweet, malty with a bold coffee presence. Very sweet and malty but the bitterness from the coffee balances it out in the finish.

Bottle at Holy Hound. Pours clear dark brown with a small, frothy off-white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is coffee, chocolate and roast malt with figs and plums, light vanilla notes. Flavor is malt dominant with coffee, nutty notes, dark fruits, light hops and bitterness with a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.
