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.

Bottle. Dark but see thru pour. Very thin. No head. Not much aroma. Big taste. Coffee upfront but a smooth bourbon like sweet finish. Good beer

Excellent overall beer - the coffee flavor is noticeable but does not take on the bitter flavor of many coffee stouts. It’s a refreshing beer for such a complex profile. Good toasty caramel flavor, nice bitterness that falls off at the finish, and a clean creamy pour.

This beer is all coffee. Great coffee nose on a dark brown lager. Very coffee in flavor as close as a beer could be to an iced coffee. Really cool.

Interesting take on the coffee beer: a Coffee Mexican Dark Lager. Modest coffee on the nose, coupled with a definite lager aroma. Not too pretty either. Tastes good, not great, with a very brisk coffee flavor that moves along a little too quickly to benefit the dark lager. Mild bitterness on the finish, but the lagery-sweet fade isn’t very pleasant, showing off why corn should never be used in beer. The texture comes off thin and undercarbonated; I can see this as a summer beer, quick and easy and forgettable.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2012 Very much like a coffee stout but without the thickness and creaminess. Refreshing light coffee flavor draws you in, tasting very much of coffee infused/blended ales, not two separate favors . Golden red color with short head. Palate wasn’t perfect as a bit watery around the front end, but finished with a solid coffee.
A new personal favorite.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark, slightly hazy amber with a 2 finger, creamy beige head. Aroma is nutty coffee, floral hops, toast, cereal grain, malt sweetness and a touch of dry straw. Flavor is big on very mild, nutty coffee, floral hops, earthy malt, a touch of spice and a light, sort of stale toffee note. Palate is light to medium bodied, with a creamy entry, moderate carbonation and creamy, but slightly chalky finish. Pretty good, not really what I’d expected. Like using a nutty coffee to bridge the gap between a mild and brown ale, but you know, it’s a lager. The mouthfeel fits the flavor profile very well.

Pours deep brown, very little head. Aromas of a fresh pot of coffee. A big roasted coffee flavor with some chocolate. Some malts, but mainly strong coffee. If you like coffee, then you’ll love this beer.

Bottle pours brown with a tan head. Aroma shows notes of light roast, heavy coffee, and an underlying hint of cocoa. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of caramel and earth. Overall body is moderate and finishes with some nice roasted bitterness.
