2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottled 04-13-2015. Clear dark brown with a film of bubbles. Aroma is low quality coffee bean, toasted pecan with the shell and a bit of caramel cola. Flavors of soured milk chocolate, caramel popcorn and dry grass. Finish has some toasted walnut and dry cocoa. Light-medium body is to the sweet side, but has an astringency that provides a semblance of balance. Medium carbonation is too fizzy and explodes in the mouth at times. Still, the Munich and black malt improves the horrible Kolsch that’s underneath so much that it’s actually a drinkable brew.

Very thin and mild. Getting a cola flavor with a touch of bread. Slight fizzy with little body or character. Just for a quick drink

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: pours with a large tan head, the beer is a clear maroon color, pretty dark though
Aroma: smoky, faint,
Taste: coffee hints, smokey, light malty caramel flavor
Palate: light mouthfeel, lively carbonation, very very faint coffee aftertaste
Overall: a tough beer to describe, very light and subtle body with hints of coffee is the best way I can describe it, decent but not too special

Malt heavy flavor with hints of coffee. Every drink is almost the same followed with a dry finish. It starts out good. However to flavor gets old really quick. This was good for one session at least to try. This is not necessarily a bad brew. Just not the type I would enjoy.
