Barnoloid (269) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 25, 2014
A solid brown ale with coffee added. Looks like a pint of cold brewed folgers. Tastes better thankfully. Smooth drinkability.

Nice Kona coffee smell and flavor. A bit lighter in appearance than expected. A bit over carbonated, but overall a nice brew! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BLADT (653) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Tap. Reddish, brown. Beige head. Vanilla coca and espresso on nose. Light body. Very little of the sweetness from the nose transfers to taste. A coffee like bitterness. Toasted malts. A little thin on palate. Ok.

Markymarx (8) - - JAN 23, 2014 does not count
Deep brown in color with minimal head. Coffee and caramel aroma. Effervescent on the tongue with malt flavor. Finishes with a nice coffee with Carmel aftertaste. Lingers a little sweet.

tdoyledesign (179) - Michigan, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Pours a nice caramel hued brown. Aroma is caramel, a hint of hops and a ton a coffee. Taste is sweet, dry up front with a hint of caramel and a strong coffee finish. Palate is hoppy, to caramel to a dry coffee finish. Mouthfeel is vey nice. Solid beer from a small brewery.

HonkeyBra (3530) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - DEC 4, 2013
64 oz. growler from the source. Pours a hazed light brown with a biege head. Aroma of very nice, fresh coffee, mild roast, touches of brown sugar and toffee malts. Flavor is very coffee forward. Some brown and caramel malts are around, but this is the rich coffee flavor’s show. Mouthfeel suffers a bit, a tan thin with average at best carbonation. Finishes quite roasty.

chucklemation (570) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Dark mahogany ale. Has a distinct coffee flavor. Goes down smooth, but the body is also a little thin. Overall an enjoyable brew.

Thin brown draft. Pleasant roast coffee on palate. But thin on the finish.
