Very tasty as the resins blend right into the espresso. Surprisingly light tasting for a 7.0 abv. I’d probably tire of it after one, but on a nippy day it’s great.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
An expresso beer for those who don’t really enjoy stouts and porters. Lots of roasted coffee aroma. The flavors, body and mouthfeel work well together and make this a very unique Amber Ale.

This beer has an amazing dark amber hue with tiny bit if creamy head that clings to the side if your glass. It has strong roasted espresso bean aromas. A coffee flavor starts out strong and mellows into that more typical finish of an amber. The flavor hangs around for a long time and continues to make you want to take another sip.

22 oz bottle. Clear garnet brown with beige froth. Nose is coffee bean, light grape and hay. Creamy at first yielding to a sharp lively tang. Taste features bold espresso bean backed by mild toffee and grass. Not shy with the coffee.

Rather enjoyable for an amber ale...although coffee makes everthing better. Pours a dark amber with a finger of dense dark beige head. The nose is mildly roasted with noted espresso and coffee aromas, light toasted bread and cereal malts as well as a bit of dark chocolate. A bit sweet with a dose of espresso towards the finish with a short but memorable finish. Overall, an interesting brew.

#13 in the advent calendar. Pours cloudy orange amber. Weak head. Smells of sweet coffee, malt and chocolate. Taste is a complex mix of malt, espresso and mild floral hops. Creamy texture. May be a little sweet for some. Good beer.
