brokensail (13623) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 24, 2014
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 (9990) - 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.

DrSilverworm (8698) - 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.

arminjewell (8673) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of vanilla, coffee bean, roast into some vanilla, hints of biscuit, slight cocoa almost into some sweet sugary notes. Taste was a mix of biscuit, grass into nice sweet vanilla, cocoa, coffee notes into some sugar, finishing sweet.

jercraigs (8666) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2015
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.

deyholla (8347) - 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.
