light tan colour, with an eighth inch of head. Distinct coffee aroma.A little lace. Average mouthfeel, good drinkability, with good bitterness and secondary malting. Coffee very distinct. Gets bitterer towards the end, but tolerable. Fast dissipitating head.

Sampled @ GLBF 2011. Poured a thin blackish brown with minimal head. Smells like coffee grains and toasted malts. taste is similar with a nice bitter finish. Not bad but too thin.

/hinting towards coffee. It is a lighter beer though, just seems like a mish-mash of a beer.

12 oz bottle thanks to 17thfloor. Pours a deep amber brown with a small creamy light beige head. Aroma is very much like a slightly weak brewed coffee. A bit of a roastiness and a hint of dark cocoa. Flavor has a very strong iced coffee character, touches of dark fruit and a crisp clean finish. Medium body and a moderate carbonation. Interesting beer, not bad, nothing crazy good but very drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
An interesting color, like an amber brown, beige cover. The aroma is lots of earthy coffee, cocoa, caramel. Taste is again very earthy, green coffee beans the roast is there but light unlike in coffee stouts where the roasted malt enhances the coffee flavor. This is actually very nice, clean caramel sweet malt with the true earthy nature of coffee beans.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.
