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.

I like this beer anyway, but add the extra complexity of coffee flavor and it makes a different beer. I had it at the 8th street grill. The only thing that is weak is the coffee cup it comes in.

Big ass can shared by JCB. Strong coffee grounds taste and aroma. Nice mix of bitter coffee and sweet brown ale. Think espresso and chocolate chips. Taste is more like sweet coffee. Very easy to drink, and you gotta love the 5.1%
