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

Wow this has a great aroma! Huge coffee roasted notes draw you in. The pour is your typical brown & has no head & leaves no lacing. The taste has just a hint of the coffee aroma upfront but finishes pretty boozy & kind of flat? Quite disappointing based on the exquisite aroma! Palate is a little harsh w/ the alcohol standing out. Overall good but could have been a masterpiece.

Pours a deep cloudy brown with a thin beige head. Aroma is a wonderful sweet coffee essence with some caramel and maple undertones. Taste is sweet caramel maple and sweet coffee candy and a bit of mild espresso bitterness. Palate is a medium smooth and creamy body, good carbonation and slight sticky mouth feel. Taste almost like a cup of ice cold java and with the alcohol at 8.3% you don’t notice it.The finish is the same as taste. Overall a very good tasty and enjoyable brew.

Coffee aroma, medium brown with a thin tan head. Malt, nuts, coffee in the initial flavor, tapering off to a sweeter caramel. Smooth and strong, leading to a very full body and finish.

Bottle. Beautiful pour. Colored just like the bottle with some mocha mixed in (like a good mocha coffee). Coffee, oat, multigrain rice. Medium body with good oaty feel and smooth but mouthful of flavor. Long sweet grainy finish.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured dark brown with a small khaki head but no real lacing on the glass. Aroma: this beer is all about coffee, strong coffee and some malts. Taste sweet but is also coffee, some roasted malts and a slight bitterness towards the end quite sticky too. Nice enjoyable beer.

Bottle shared by John at his house. Pours brown with off white head. Nose is overwhelming green pepper with coffee and flaked oats. Some chocolate. Taste is the same but green pepper is more in the background. Lighter medium body.

Bottle. Nose is big rich dark roast of coffee blending in with lighter roast of a stout or at least roasty brown. And nice and nutty! Body is a deep tawny brown with ruby and copper highlights, very short beige head. So nice to see a commercial coffee beer that’s not pitch black. Medium body is nice and layered, malty with light nuts, mild sweetness and little bitterness; good coffee flavor but not domineering, touch of rubbery astringency but on the whole very smooth, slick, clean, and slow/cold brewed. Light chocolate with fruity sparkles, no alcohol, touch of ash. I think they’ve found a harmonious recipe and the ingredients are quality, but then again, I’m a sucker for coffee beers, even if I like them ashy and dry.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark brown body, thin off-white/light tan head, minimal lacing. Nose is all espresso and light roasted malts. Flavor is similar... a bit harsh and one-noted. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, astringent finish. If a beer is brewed with one thing in mind and doesn’t work, adding a shit ton of coffee to it won’t save it.
