FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep golden with a small white head. Aroma is very strong mocha coffee character, vanilla, cream, coffee like a latte with vanilla. Flavor has much the same, straightforward vanilla and cocoa and coffee. Finishing sweet and nestle cocoa powder. Fizzy carbonation, too much for the style, soda-like prickle that should be softer to let all those sweet notes roll. Medium body. The more I drink the more I kind of feel like its an artificial coffee character but it has some nice notes to it

Bottle. Pours light golden color with short-lived, thin white head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, and bread. Taste is citrus and hints of coffee and chocolate. Kind of an odd bread-like aftertaste. Interesting and enjoyable beer overall.

MrChopin (3999) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 23, 2015
[ Bottle ][ 1oz ][ @tasting ][ $0 ][ Shot glass ][ 08.15.15 ]
huge white head lasts, large bubbles atop hazy straw. Green nose, beany but no roast, detergent-esque as a result. More roast to balance the bean in flavor, creamy vanilla as well, soft with appropriate sweetness and decent malt balance. Flavor a huge improvement, push through the nose.

Bornyensis (321) - BELGIUM - OCT 5, 2015
Een licht kruidig Amerikaans biertje. Eenvoudig te drinken wegens de lage alcoholpercentage.

Huhzubendah (3237) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 15, 2015
Ratebeer tasting. Pale blonde body, mild haze copious bone white head. Aromas of coffee, assorted nuts, malt, chocolate. Such chocolate and coffee flavor is surprising from such a light colored beer. Really tasty.
