3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(En fût à Sport Shotz Detroit Airport): Un mélange plutôt efficace de céréales craquants, légèrement acidulées et d’un voile de torréfaction. Finale peu amère mais juteuse. Un liquide peu complexe mais bien exécuté.

Aroma is citrus, malts, fruit and very funky. The flavor is malts, coffee, fruit, earthy, spices and a funky/sweetish finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange pour from draft at Merkles, white head. Has a cream and coffee aroma, taste doesn’t follow the appearance in my opinion. Has a coffee and lager flavor, it is easy to drink but not sure I’d order it up again. Worth a try though.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is kinda a novelty but drinkable at least. It’s cloudy pale golden w/ a long lasting head of medium bubbles. It smells sort of grassy and hoppy, mildly grainy, but tastes mostly of vanilla w/ a hint of coffee. It has really brisk carbonation which seems to clash w/ the somewhat thick mouthfeel and the overall flavor. It finishes w/ roasty coffee bitterness and some lingering sweetness. This one is more about the added ingredients than the base beer, which is fine I suppose, but doesn’t really come together here.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A new brewery for me. Poured from a can, looks like your generic adjunct American beer. Aroma is yeast, grass and hay. Flavor has just a hint of coffee and some malt. Texture is a bit thicker than water. I think this would be nice beer after chopping grass, a hard day fishing, or even hang in at the beach.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL, enjoyed on the night of Super Tuesday....gonna be a long one! Appearance is a brownish yellow with a carbonated white head that dissipates relatively quickly. Aroma is a unique mixture of caramel, coffee, vanilla, smells nice. Taste is really really good, vanilla and coffee come out great and this has a relatively light profile, not heavy. Good stuff here!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared 12 oz. can poured to snifters, showing a clear, light gold, almost straw color, with a bubbly white layer of head foam, and light spots & strands of lacing. The nose was expressive mocha scent, with caramel sweetness and vanilla. Light bodied, with okay carbonation, the taste was similar notes, but didn’t at all match the aroma’s intensity, kind of as an after thought. Pleasantly sessionable, nonetheless.
