3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 don’t typically care for coffee flavours. On tap at HopCat, Detroit.
