First taste from bottle was like a quality coffee porter - color after pour was surprising light. A winning balance of weight, flavor, finish make this one of the best coffee beers of any style.

Out of the bottle poor is golden with a white head. Aroma is light coffee . The taste of this beer is surprising compared to the way it looks. Upfront you get coffee flavors that are not overpowering along withsome chocolate notes. Flavors of this beer do not linger giving it a smooth finish. Easy drinker that is worth trying.

sudomorph (619) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours a clear, golden yellow with a thin, white head. Aroma has slightly sweet, slightly candy, notes of vanilla, toffee, caramel, and a hint of coffee, but not really roasty. Interesting. Taste is balanced with mild coffee/roasty notes paired with traces of vanilla and caramel, and a short aftertaste of coffee bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Very slightly syrupy but still very drinkable. Overall an interesting and tasty beer. Traces of coffee and vanilla but without the big roasted flavours.

shrubber85 (7646) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle. Milky coffee and toffee malt aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Sweet creamy coffee, caramel malt and lightly bitter citrus peel flavor. Nice body and blending. Very tasty.

UnsofistaCat (237) - Garden City, Michigan, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Refreshing. Very slight trace of vanilla. It reminds me of a good iced coffee with no cream or sugar. More like crisp pilsner with notes of coffee. No artificially flavor crap in this. Doesn’t have much of a nose.

Bottle: Hazy gold with a large white head. Honey/lemon aroma....chocolate and coffee. Taste is malty...creamy vanilla, coffee, light chocolate malt. The flavours match up very well with the blonde base..... Different.....very tasty.

bpar73 (477) - Bellaire, Michigan, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Taste and aroma of coffee and chocolate with a bit of nuttiness. As others have noted it is unusual to have such a coffee dominate beer be a blonde, but it works well.

AirForceHops (3225) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 2, 2014
12 oz. bottle thanks to fishmich. Bottle date 06/20/2014. Thick retention on top a hazy gold liquid. Aroma is rather interesting, fruity hops and coffee bean lingers in the air. The flavor is pretty much as it smells. Grain base body, coffee hints of chocolate and traces of vanilla. Coffee is the most dominate flavor and lingers a good while after the sip. Body is light with gritty/ grainy feel. Nice drink and different for sure.

jcr (2210) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Bottle. Golden body with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, toasted grain, bread. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Mocha taste reminiscent of coffee and cream, sugar. Enjoyable.
