3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear dark ruby - moderate lace - nose of earthy, caramelized sugars, vanilla, oily coffee bean, lightly tangy lemon - flavor is medium sweet toffee up front, followed by moderate coffee bean, earthiness/mushroom, a touch of smoke - lemon peal is hardly noticeable - finish of toasty malt and light coffee - a strange combo - not bad, but it doesn’t all work as well together as it could.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle Pour - translucent brown with a thin head that recedes quickly. Aroma is sweet malt, coffee, hint of milk chocolate...very clean for the style. Flavor is different than anything I can recall, and it works quite well actually...malty beer flavor up front is quickly replaced by smooth espresso notes, and even a citrusy feel as well...ends with a considerable chocolate (& coffee) note. Sweet throughout, there is little to no hop presence here. Slight corn flavor mid-drink. Palate is very smooth and slightly rich - at least more viscous than I expected. Wouldn’t drink many of these, but not upset I have 3 more left to enjoy...

Bottle from Kroger. Clear brown pour with an off-white head. Aroma is coffee, citrus, bread, and coffee. Taste is lemon up front, oily, and kinda dirty. Wish the taste had matched the smell.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from mix pack. Pours maple syrup brown with no foam. Smells thin and mild with a strong bitter-free cold-brew coffee aroma. Tastes light-medium bodied, lightly sweet with hints of wheat, coriander and citrus with a main mild bitter-free coffee flavor. the idea is interesting, but it’s way more mild than I’d like it to be.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Little snifter at the brewery. Pours dark amber with a good head. Espresso is in the aroma, but not hugely so. There are some creamy malt notes as well. The palate is lighter than most other coffee beers I’ve had. Creamy coffee notes mix with bready hints. Finish is brief. I don’t sense the citrus mentioned in the description.
