3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle to taster (shared by brew3crew). Looks good for the style; a dark amberish brown with light beige head and lively carbonation. Smells solid; BIG coffee with notes of malt and a bit of tartness. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by Huhzubendah, thanks! Poured a light brown color with a small off-white head, as with the regular Mash. Aroma was nice lightly sweetened malts, toffee throughout this one, caramel notes - though all are overpowered by the coffee in here. I like coffee, and this reminds me a lot of a really fresh cup of coffee. Initial reaction makes me think this is better than Mash, but upon further inspection over that evening, the complexity of the base beer is a little lost here. Still good, but not nearly as good.

Bottle: The aroma consists of coffee, toffee, fruit, and a touch of vanilla. It pours a cloudy orangish-brown with a small beige head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a thin ring. The flavor starts with a caramel, chocolate, and a hint of fruit. The finish has a ton of coffee, roasted nuts, vanilla, and a touch of bourbon. It’s medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, I would have expected I would like the coffee version better. This is very good, but I like regular Mash slightly better.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
This one poured a murky brown color with a beige head. Aroma was of coffee, lots of green peppers and cramel. Falvor was booze, green pepper and cofee. Very stale and unappealing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a brown color, with a tannish head. Very sweet similar to Mash, caramel malt, light dried dark fruit, vanilla and bourbon, and mostly covered by huge coffee flavor. The coffee really takes over the beer. Quite boozy. Not my favorite.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle in a tasting glass. Pours hazy, ruby/brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of coffee, bourbon, caramel and toffee malts plus hints of bitterness. Flavor the same with a nice blend of the coffee and the strong malt profile. Smooth texture. A good beer.

Bottle thanks to Kevin. Pours a clear brown with small beige head that lasts leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is strong coffee bean and roast. Medium mouthfeel with rich coffee flavor and light roast nuttiness. Very good, really enjoyed this.

Bottle. Dark pour with some head. Rich chocolate, vanilla, toffee, and coffee aromas. Similar sweet flavors, with a bit of warmth, but not overbearing.
