Aroma of coffee in the medium bodied beer, a lot of coffee in the taste with a little chocolate on the flavor, ok

Bottle @ Richard’s Tasting. Clear straw colored pour with a white head. Some vanilla, coffee, and a bit of green pepper. Some grass, water, chocolate, and bread. Not bad. Flavor is a bit too peppery, but otherwise, good coffee. Chocolate, light vanilla, and sweet malt. A bit of grass and water. Kind of basic and simple, but not bad.

Bottle, from b3shine-- thanks! Medium gold body, average white head. Aroma is sweet coffee and chocolate, very aromatic. The palate is surprisingly rich, lots of coffee and chocolate, sweet but not cloying. Really quite a juxtaposition between appearance and flavour here! You have to really like mocha-ish flavours to enjoy this, and luckily I do-- interesting and tasty.

Interesting. Deep straw color thin white head. Coffee and cream aroma. Light coffee, vanilla in a thin body and thin carbonation. Mouth feel lacks in this one.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Bottle:   Golden, small frothy white head, little lacing.   Wow, strong coffee aroma, even a touch of chocolate.   Seems weird for such a light colored beer.   Coffee and cocoa on the tongue.   Not as impressive as the nose, but still rather flavorful.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   A little prickly on the tongue.   Soft coffee and cocoa on the finish.   Pretty simple beer, but for what it is its flavorful.

Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.; thanks dudeabide). Looks good for the style; a transparent orangish gold with white lacing. Smells solid; well-balanced coffee and vanilla. Tastes like it smells with a smooth, light mouthfeel. A great, robust blonde ale.

Smooth and sweet. Mild coffee and cream flavors are front and center. Good one for a light night.

12 oz bottle and served in an ESPN Lager glass: Pours a clean golden hue with a smallish head and spotty lace. The aroma and taste has moderate coffee notes, biscuity pale malts, undertones of vanilla beans and peanuts. Very light and almost non-existent hop notes. A tad sweet as it warms. A different brew for sure, sort of like this however.

Pours a clear amber with a good lingering sticky white head. Aroma is heavy coffee beans and biscuit. Thin side on mouthfeel. Slight hop overpowered a bit by coffee bean. Not much depth but an interesting combination. I see what they're doing and I like the idea of pushing the envelope but coffee belongs elsewhere. Good job none the less!
