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.

Tap at Indeed. Reddish brown pour with a smaller soapy head. This is all coffee grounds on the nose and taste - which sits just fine with me. Tasty brew.

2.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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 at the brewery, pours a reddish brown with minimal tan head. Scent is all coffee grounds, like walking into a coffee shop. Taste is like a cup of coffee, I actually really enjoy this even though it doesn't have much of a beer flavor.

Bottle poured a rich brown color with a thick chewy off white head that held on very well. Aroma has dark coffee, brown malt, mild caramel, and a slight hit of dark sweet fruit. Mouth feel is medium light with average carbonation. Flavor again leads with coffee, almost no bitterness, dark rich malts, and a smooth finish. Incredibly clean coffee and the lack of bitterness for the strength is amazing!
