4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is of coffee, malts, earth. Tastes of malts and toast with bold espresso flavors warming the mouth after. A beautiful, well balanced beer. Sumatra is one of my favorite types of coffee so that was a really nice nice bonus for taste and palate points.

A hazy copper brown color, not much for aroma, maybe subtle coffee notes. Taste has the coffee real subtle in the background which is nice for an amber. Some toffee and chocolate and biscuit as well. Maybe subtle licorice and some cardboard as well. Not impressed with this amber.

CBAC day 13. Pours a clear amber color with a nice frothy and lacey brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, toffee, chocolate and tequila/alcohol. Flavor is coffee, light roasted malt, toffee, chocolate and a light bit of nuttiness. Overall this is a really well balanced coffee beer that has lots of flavor.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Advent but forgot if 12 or 13. Dark amber with a light head. Aroma of a strong ale, a bit of molasses or toffee and alcohol. Flavour is coffee, roots and a metallic amber ale. Seems like a mix of beers rather than a real coming together of flavours. Kind of a winter warmer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep, hazy amber. Aroma is espresso, caramel malts, nuts. Flavour brings out sweet malts with some fruit, and espresso. Finishing with a subtle bitterness. A bit medicinal on the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle pours amber in color with a small off-white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is coffee with some caramel, chocolate and cereal grains. Taste is a coffee with citrus hop bitterness and a light chocolate, caramel malty sweetness. Medium body with average carbonation. An interesting amber ale with the addition of coffee. I am not a big fan of coffee, but this brew is pretty decent.

Bottle. Pours a brigh lt but dark brown color. Taste is an amber roasty coffee like taste with a flavorful backbone of malts and sugar . Very good and drinkable from a brewery I usually don't care for
