Bottle @ Richardís 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.

Draft sample at MBGSF 2013. Poured hazy amber color with an average frothy brown head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted coffee and sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted coffee bittersweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration.

Blonde colored pour with a white head. Flavors of coffee, sure didnít 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.

hopdog (9189) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2014
12oz bottle. Poured a slightly hazy golden color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of coffee with some grains, and a little bit roasty. Tastes of coffee and chocolate. For a 4.5% beer, this one rocks. Coffee in a coffee beer, exactly what I want.

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.

DuffMan (7032) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 23, 2014
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.

deyholla (7014) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the 15th annual MBGSF. Pours a hazy gold with a white head that dissipates quickly and completely. Aroma is full of a strong coffee note with only a hint of backing light grain note. Flavor works better with a light coffee note that works well with the light grain, grass and fruit notes.

DrSilverworm (6979) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2013
12oz bottle purchased somewhere in Michigan. Looks like a somewhat low fill. Clear golden orange color. Thin white head. No lace really sticks. Impressive big coffee flavor dominates the flavor. Maybe a bit of bready, biscuity malt in the back. Hint of chocolate. Light to medium body. Light to moderate carbonation, kind of softer crisp texture. Lightly sticky in the finish. Good long coffee aftertaste in the finish. Light citrusy hop. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Not your typical golden ale, but a very tasty and unusual coffee beer.. Much better than expected.

5000 (6299) - 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.

BBB63 (6155) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 22, 2013
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.
