Bottle at Jerry’s. Copper with good, creamy, tan head, light legs / Sweet, malty nose of spun sugar, tobacco, coffee / Light to medium body, smooth, creamy, lightly sweet, some chew, and good hop balance with bitter finish / Bright but mellow flavors of roast coffee, tobacco, cocoa, spun sugar, with citrus notes / Really a lovely session ale?, with a superb body and an interesting, complex, flavor profile with the coffee aspect properly subdued.

Meh, not a huge fan of this one. Light in body, coffee is strong but doesnt mix as well as with stouts. Lots of carmel.

A pretty interesting take on a coffee beer. Very refreshing and light, crisp. Pretty balanced, despite the toffee and smooth nutty undertones, still a cold one. Pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Old Fashioned in Madison, WI., and dispensed to a cold shaker (too crowded to bother sending back) showing a cloudy, amber brown, (less the frost) modest, tan head that quickly diminished to a ring & film, and light, patchy lacing. The nose was very roasted coffee, some baker’s chocolate, and a light malt presence. Medium bodied with good effervescence, my initial impression was "iced coffee" before reading any description. Medium hop bitterness built as the beer warmed. Lightly sweet, but didn’t notice much flake/creaminess. Finished with a decent astringency and dryness. Not on the steady diet list, but interesting.

First off, kudos to Furthermore for their uniquely named beers as this one certainly caught my eye in the mix and match section. This is a beer with 100% fair trade coffee, or as the bottom of the bottle reads “A Nicaraguan all-female growers co-op (stop) A lusciously aromatic just coffee roast (stop) Our warm-fermented, cold-lagered cerveza oscura (huh?)” Did you understand all that?
It pours a medium brown color with a light brown head. The aroma is mostly coffee to the degree that if we did a blind smell test, you would never guess this was a beer. Overall it is very inviting for the coffee beer lovers. This just might rival some of the best coffee beers that Wisconsin has to offer.
The taste is smooth yet quite bold. Once again is this beer of coffee? The texture is very much like a beer but the coffee flavoring overpowers the malts and hops. It is quite unique as you usually only see coffee used in stouts and porters instead of an American lager. It leaves behind a mild coffee after taste.
This was a pretty interesting find. It’s not something I am going to want all the time, but it is certainly a well made, good tasting brew. The creativity to put coffee into a lager was a good choice as this turned out to be a pretty damn good coffee beer especially since I’m not a coffee drinker. Keep up the good work Furthermore.

A dark hazy amber, small creamy tan head. Aroma is coffee, some milk chocolaty sweetness, some nuttiness. Creamy medium body, very clean and smooth. Flavor is just delicious. Creamy nutty coffee, light milk chocolate, slightly bitter hop finish. Very enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma starts and finishes with coffee beans. Appearance is lighter than I expected in a burnt orange variant with a white head that lingers in wisps. Taste starts with a mild sourness and subtly coffee flavors. Overall, this is a pleasant beer but not one I want a 6-er of.
