COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Please enjoy this convenient distraction from your daily life. We sure enjoyed taking a break from our everyday "grind" one afternoon at the brewery to meet a very passionate local coffee roaster who was interested in a possible collaboration. This liquid is our story.

Bottle. Dark pour with off white head. Smells like a porter with a lot of coffee. A little thin with a lot of coffee flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The thin mouth feel is excusable considering it is a coffee imbued porter but the fakeness of the java character and the very noticeable medicinal tones are not. It also confirms my overall dislike for vanilla imbued beers as well.

Bottle picked up in Madison last weekend. Dark brown pour, certainly on the thinner side. Nice tan head. Really awesome nose on this: Roasted malt, chocolate and coffee with a big vanilla nose. Light on the mouthfeel with coffee notes and vanilla - slight astringency on the backend.

brokensail (10958) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle @ home. Thanks, Jake. Black pour with a finger of so of tan foam. Decent coffee aroma to this. Some dark chocolate, licorice, and raisin. Kind of ashy, though, particularly as it warms. Flavor has some mild toffee sweetness, but a lot of bitter roast, ash, and coffee grounds. Kind of some green apple and bell pepper, too.

Brown pour, tan head. Nose is coffee, sort of funky, seems like it could be infected. Taste is coffee, vanilla beans, chocolate. Medium mouthfeel.

rxeight (1319) - Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Lots if vanilla. Touch of coffee. Has a hint of bourbon in there. Body is a bit thin but this doesn’t seem as strong as your typical imperial.
