Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a small, white head. If you just saw the glass sitting on the counter you would think its macro swill. Sweet cream, chocolate and a nutty aroma. Coffee is the dominant flavor, but its not overpowering. Hints of vanilla cream and cereal are also mixed in. Creamy texture with average carbonation. Different, yet smooth and very easy to drink.

Bottle. Surprisingly enjoyable. Light golden pour with frothy white head. Nose of faint malt, coffee and vanilla. Was skeptical but the coffee really works in the taste. Could be a tad more malty and sweet. Nice work.

Blonde colored pour with a white head. Flavors of coffee, sure didn’t look like a coffee beer! Toasted marshmallow, hint of white chocolate peanut butter, light yeastiness is nice. Very cool damn beer. Finds like this make GABF fun.

Pours baked golden mostly clear with a smaller white head. The aroma brings straight up clean peanut butter, so unexpected from the impression that I was going to get coffee beans. Body is lighter, flavor brings some sweet golden malts and baked peanutty flavors, almost peanut butter again with a bit of hops on the end to bring the sweetness to a halt. Thoroughly enjoyed the unsuspecting characteristics of this beer.

This pours a medium gold with a +2 finger head of foam.
The nose is interesting...notes of chocolate and light coffee. Maybe? some bready malt aromas. Yes, I think so. Weird smell to this brew but I have to say, it’s inviting. The more I thought about it, the more I think it has kind of a brownie smell to it.
It has a very nice coffee flavour up front with more or less hints of chocolate. Not much hop bitterness that I can detect; all of the bitterness seems to be coming from the coffee. I’m digging it now that half the glass is gone.
Good mouthfeel and easy drinking, this would make for an excellent breakfast beer for those folks in Odd Sides’ distro area. 4.5% abv..you got the right idea!

This poured a semi hazy dark yellow color with a white head. Aroma was of coffee, pale malt, and grass. Falvor was similar, coffee, and creamer and marshmellows with a grassy golden ale finish. Impressed.

Bottle pours a light yellow with a big white head. Smell is white bread, coffee, and cereal. Taste is not what I expected. Fudgsical, coffee, cheerios. Strange but not bad. Easy drinking light finish.

From a bottle. I get more chocolate than coffee, but more like a roast espresso bean. Not really my thing.

Thanks Liz Cox, for bringing this back from Michigan. Medium amber with a 1" head that lasts the duration, horizontal streaks of lace. Taste is a refreshing revelation: wheaty malt starts things off, giving space quickly for a tart milk coffee that draws up nicely to the malt, but doesn’t exceed what is already present. Surprising and somewhat daring in its flavor combination, but it certainly works well in this example. Recommended.
