Can at the BA Decadence line tasting. Pours a dark brown-black with a small beige head. The aroma is pure coffee. The taste is more coffee and more coffee. Did not get much else, but hey, I love coffee, so this went down real well. Only disappointment was that the mouthfeel was a bit on the thin side. Overall: very simple in its approach, yet quite good. Thanks to whoever brought it.

Can shared with Sparky27...thanks Eric!!! Mahogany pour with a 1/4 inch eggshell head and a couple of nice rings of lace. Aroma is 100% Folger’s...not a ton of complexity here. Aggressive roasted coffee, faint caramel malt, and a dash of brown sugar. Would take this over a cappuccino any morning!!!

Pours a dark brown with a smallish light brown head. Smells of really nice blend of coffee and dark brown malts and roast. I really dug the nose on this. The flavor was pretty tasty as well. not as thick bodied as i was expecting, but then i have to remember its just a brown ale. Very big on the flavor with hints of some roast and chocolate as well. I think its an excellent brown ale, and wold drink again.

From puggy...thanks man. Pours a nice cloudy dark brown with a good tan head. Aroma is really cool...hops, malt and lots of coffee. So often coffee infused beers are stouts/porters this is a refreshing new look for coffee beers. Flavor has some great coffee, light malts and a nice amoutn of hops. Some of the nutiness in regular bender has been lost with the coffee...but it doesnt hurt the beer. Good stuff.
