3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Renegade - dark reddish brown - fairly thick and sticky lace - nose of hazelnut, cream, coffee bean, vanilla, sweetbread - creamy texture, fairly full-bodied - sweet hazelnut and vanilla cream flavors, along with strong coffee bean - the sweetness, acidity, and roast of the beans are presented in equal measure and add a nice depth to the beer - this is solid.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pint at Renegade Publik House. Pours rich brown with a khaki head. Decent amount of genuine coffee in the nose. Milky sweetness and toasty malts are apparent. I could use a little more coffee, but I’m being nitpicky and have recently been spoiled by Avery’s coffee stout. There is assertive, fresh coffee character on this brown ale and the milky sweetness and nutty notes make this a very tasty sipper.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear dark brown with a thin off-white head. Nose has a nice floral nutty coffee tone with a touch of earthy berry and a little more coffee roastiness. Flavor is nutty and very earthy with even the roasty delicious coffee tones bringing a certain earthiness with it, alongside that strange but welcoming wildberry tone from the nose. Tastes like cafe con leche, but with a little nuttiness and earthy brown malts. Weird, but lovely.
