3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. It pours a a dark reddish orange color with an off white head. The aroma is decidedly coffee forward with some cocoa and hints of vanilla. The flavor is big with lukewarm coffee, some citrus and a bit on the acidic side with not much else. Nice effort, but not real exciting.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear brownish amber with a small beige head. Coffee and toasted nuts aroma. Taste is malty with some nutty and coffee flavors; barely sweet and just a little bit more than that bitter. Aftertaste kind of cola-like. Medium bodied and a little dry.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with almost no head. Aroma of fresh coffee grounds, toffee, and roastyness. A little creamy, but kind of thin. Flavor is coffee, roasted malts, and slightly acidic. Not bad, really

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown ale with the destinct smell of coffee. Looks almost like carbonated coffee too. Taste is mostly coffee with some caramel lurking in there. Never noticed the lemon the bottle said was in there but don’t know that I really wanted to have lemon in my coffee so it was all good. Really good breakfast beer (yep drank them after eating my eggs and bacon). Hope to see this one come out in 6 packs so I dont have to keep buying samplers.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle, pours a dark brown with a bit of light passing through the bottom of the glass. Aroma is coffee and chocolate and am unable to smell any lemon. Light mouth with sweet coffee and a bit of tartness balancing out the back end. It’s unique.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from a Spec’s, 9/24/13
Aroma: The aroma is a mix of coffee and toffee malts with some lemon zest
Appearance: It pours a reddish-brown color with a tan-brown head and average lace
Flavor: Flavor-wise, the mix is the same, it is malty, with some coffee, and lemon too
Palate: The body is light-medium, not watery at all, and it has a decent overall feel
This one delivers what is describes in the description. It doesn’t sound like it would work well at all, but it kind of does. Odd and interesting. Worth trying too, just not necessarily 100% my cup of tea...

Nothing wrong with that! It’s actually a pretty good ale, and I like the nice light body and rich coffee flavor. Aroma is great: strong brewed coffee aroma. The finish is nice too: dry, coffee, and a faint smoothness...is there a market for breakfast beers yet?
