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

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle shared that poured a clear yellow with small white head. Aroma is mocha, vanilla and coffee. Mild malt base. This is a strange combination but yet refreshingly good. The flavors blends very well together with the mocha being the dominant flavor followed by the vanilla and then mild coffee. Couldnít drink a lot of this but it is very good.

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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a bottle.
Aroma is fairly sweet with a cream-like aroma with some light grain notes. An off vegetable note which I assume is the coffee. Some light vanilla.
Pours a somewhat clear, gold with a small, moderately thick, white head that recedes fairly quickly to the edges where a thin film lingers. Moderate lacing and small legs.
Flavor is sweet, but less than I was expecting from the aroma. Some light grain notes. Moderate creamer-like sweet notes with some vanilla present. The weird vegetable note from the aroma isnít here, but there also isnít really any coffee. As it warms some light coffee appears, but it really tastes like beer with some vanilla flavored creamer. Medium light bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Light astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, another not great beer from this brewery. Itís really weird as the coffee character is rather faint, but the other flavors and aromas are very pronounced.
