3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served from a 2 oz bottle thanks to Craig. The appearance is a deep amber with a definite coffee hue in there. The aromas are full of nice mild roast coffee, nutty notes too. The flavors follow with a nutty espresso/coffee some chard caramel. The mouth is medium bodied. Very nice lighter bodied coffee brew with still plenty of flavor.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a luscious, barely translucent chocolate brown; the way it was poured made judging the head impossible so I can’t comment on that aspect, though the beer left substantial lacing as I drank. Sweet quality coffee dominates the aroma, and there are hints of malt and smoke - it smells more like a good stout than an amber ale. Flavor is mainly quality roast coffee with a malty undertone. Texture is fairly smooth and fizzy. Though this is an amber ale, stout and porter lovers should enjoy it.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sweet, malty aroma with strong hints of maple syrup and fresh coffee. Extremely sweet taste without excessive stickiness or burn, with some hop flavor, although not a lot of depth. Then again, it is an amber; it would be unfair to expect stout depth simply because of implied coffee notes. A great variation on typical hopped-up American ambers and also a good beer to introduce your BMC-drinking friends to real ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottler. Pours a reddish tan color with a nice head that quickly collars around the glass. Holy coffee aroma in the nose! I am really surprised at the color of this beer with such a strong coffee aroma. Medium mouthfeel. The coffee taste is a little more subdued at first in the taste but then comes full force at the end. Slightly sweet up front. Could totally be a brown ale or almost a porter with the flavors that I am getting. Pretty tasty.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Interesting and unique brew. Aroma doesn’t offer much but the flavor is packed full of espresso. Really nice brew. Mouth feel / Palate is nice, crisp and you can really feel the good malting. Great brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz twist-off bottle. Copper color, tan foam head. Heavy aroma of coffee. Lighter in color than brewed coffee, but oh, the smell is there! No aroma of beer, just green coffee beans. An odd flavor of caramel malts, and green coffee beans. Finishes with a coffee roast character and a touch of woody hops. Clearly the best of the Peak Organic beers. Every sip reminds me of the islands.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle… Beautiful deep copper ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. Scrumptious, caramel and espresso bouquet with undertones of maple syrup and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with textured carbonation. Malty, delicious beer, but hopped up just enough to slant a tad toward the bitter side of balance. Moderately bitter, mocha finish. Great beer; nice surprise.
