3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Share courtesy of our tasting host, douglas88. It poured up with a clear deep copper body supporting an off white head of foam. The aroma offers up smooth nutty coffee roastiness. If I close my eyes and smell it seems just like a cup of coffee. The taste has a medium roast coffee note mixing with faint chili pepper that delivers zero heat. Pretty nice cup o joe.

On tap at a local restaurant. Strong coffee aromas with the less typical brown ale style is a great combo.

Not bad, not great. It had very mild "green" coffee flavors. This made it more sour than needed. Palate was nice and light.

Side-by-side with the Big Wood Morning Wood. Amber brown color. Great, great coffee aroma, but the flavor was way out of whack--it tasted like the coffee grounds that my grandmother would put in a slop bucket on top of other things like melon rinds and last night’s dinner. Bitter notes, too intense and somewhat difficult to drink--and I love coffee beers. (on tap, Groveland Tap, St. Paul)

On tap brewery pours a orangish brown with a large off-white head. Aroma of fresh roasted coffee and caramel. Taste is roasted coffee and caramel with some slight nuttiness. Mellow smooth and enjoyable. Easier to drink and enjoy the coffee then a lot of heavy coffee stouts.
