12oz bottle shared that poured a clear yellow with small white head. Aroma is mocha, vanilla and coffee. Mild malt base. This is a strange combination but yet refreshingly good. The flavors blends very well together with the mocha being the dominant flavor followed by the vanilla and then mild coffee. Couldnít drink a lot of this but it is very good.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden color. Aroma and taste are really nice coffee and some vanilla.

2015-07-04. Crisp yellow body with a small white head. 3+ Aroma is interesting, lovely mocha notes and roasty coffee character. 7++ Flavour has similar coffee roast character, light mocha, underlying sweet pale malt. Average plus bodied palate, carbonation. Surprisingly good considering I donít typically care for coffee flavours. On tap at HopCat, Detroit.

Poured from a bottle. Aroma is fairly sweet with a cream-like aroma with some light grain notes. An off vegetable note which I assume is the coffee. Some light vanilla. Pours a somewhat clear, gold with a small, moderately thick, white head that recedes fairly quickly to the edges where a thin film lingers. Moderate lacing and small legs. Flavor is sweet, but less than I was expecting from the aroma. Some light grain notes. Moderate creamer-like sweet notes with some vanilla present. The weird vegetable note from the aroma isnít here, but there also isnít really any coffee. As it warms some light coffee appears, but it really tastes like beer with some vanilla flavored creamer. Medium light bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Light astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, another not great beer from this brewery. Itís really weird as the coffee character is rather faint, but the other flavors and aromas are very pronounced.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2015 Bottle from Lockeís Party Shoppe. Pours dark blonde with a modest white head and a floral coffee aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with lots of coffee. Ani interesting and tasty brew.

This is kind of weird but I like it. Coffee on the nose. Some bright acidity with the straw malt, smooth body, more coffee. I like it.

12 oz bottle pours a hazy golden with a white head. Mostly dominated by coffee, but I get some diacetyl at the same time. Is that from the coffee? Easy drinking either way. Went down very quickly.

Tap at brewery. Sort of strange off yellow/dark gold. No head. Nose is straight up coffee/cream/sugar. Tastes of mild latte, mild dry hopping.

This one doesn't work for me. Interesting premise but I don't think they pulled it off. The coffee flavor without the roastiness of a darker beer is just weird. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
