3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at City Beers, SF
Slightly hazy amber with a very brief head.
Loads of coffee(-grounds) and citrus in both aroma and flavour.
Pretty fizzy and slightly weird.

On tap at BJís, nice amber color and then a whiff of straight espresso. Amazingly one-dimensional in aroma, all espresso. The taste is complete espresso with a hint of citrus. The flavor and smell donít match the appearance at all, this was a weird beer.
Serving type: on-tap

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap at the Saucer in Houston. Pours a light, clear, brown into the glass with a thin white head. Aroma smells like fat tire served out of a coffee urn. Flavor really rubs me the wrong way. The coffee flavor I get from this beer tastes like a pot of coffee that you left sitting over a weekend and then tried to reheat. I love that a brewery of New Belgiumís size experiments with beers like this, but for me this one was a complete miss.

This beer is easy to drink, but the coffe flavor is a bit out-of-place, it doesnít seem to fit with the beer.

Cool little coffee red type brew with a nice little bit of citrus in the back. Iím surprised I like this as much as I do. Pretty good.

Tap @ Freakin Frog, Las Vegas. As Iíd never seen this brew before, I thought why not order it. Pours amber with a tan head. Nose is sweet and light with hints of coffee. Taste is big, with a lot of coffee and espresso, overall not bad.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On Tap at The Hopyard @ San Ramon. Very nutty - in fact if I was told they used pecan and walnut instead of coffee and lemon, I wouldnít be surprised. Pours dark amber min white head. Lots of nutty notes. Tastes sweet - Iím not tasting the espesso but its good. Finish is clean, with a sweet note.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted 1/6/09. 12oz bottle. Filtered with a dark copper hue. Vigorous pour produces a finger width of beige head. Watery coffee aromas with a hint of cocoa. Medium bodied with a thin, weak coffee flavor. Typical NBB house yeast character. Finishes with a decent hop kick. Enjoyable drinking. Good difference from the normal coffee beer offering.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Definitely coffee on the nose. Deep amber color. Lemon peel adds just enough to make it light and interesting. Not much else there, but I just ate a pretty spicy burrito, so my mouth is kind of numb. Considering "espresso-roasted" doesnít necessarily mean anything in particular, I canít tell the difference between this and infused with regular old coffee, but interesting beer nonetheless.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Opaque brown pour with a tiny white head that fades almost immediately. Huge coffee aroma, not really getting anything else out of it but it is pleasant enough. Heavy coffee taste as well, some light caramel as well with the tiniest hint of lemon flavoring coming through at the very end. The beer sounded a lot more interesting than it actually was, but not a bad effort.
