Bottle from allendodd. Thanks for this and all the others! Pours a ruddy copper with a three-finger beige head. It laced a bit. Aroma is coffee. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is mostly coffee. There’s some dark malt underneath. Lager? Ok. But it can stand up against a lot of porters and stouts. Damn tasty ale, er lager!!!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to goldtwins for sharing this one. Amber brown beer with a thin white head. Aroma is quite coffeeish and fairly rich smelling. Soft sweet toasty caramel behind it. Much lighter in colour and flavour than every other coffee beer that I’ve had, but still quite coffeeish. A touch of light sweetness and fresh herbal coffee. I like this actually.

Bottle from noncaloric. wow what a cool and VERY good beer. Pours a mahagony color with a small light head. Aroma is full of coffee and lightly roasted malt. Flavor hits you with some very nice coffee tones followed by a nice malt sweetness and some caramel malts lead way to a perfect balance of hops. This beer tastes like a mix between a brown and an amber with some good coffee notes. I could drink more of this.
