Very tasty brown ale. Flavours of pleasant coffee backed onto subtle soft flavours of malt and slight chocolate. Over all this is a soft beer in a good way, easy going something you could sip at on a Sunday morning when feeling a little ruff.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2014 Dark brown color, medium sized brown head. Coffee and alcohol nose. Lots of coffee, roasted malt, some alcohol and chocolate. You can taste the alcohol only at first, but that feel disappears really fast. What stays in mouth is big coffee aroma which turns into really big, extremely long and pleasant coffee finish. Thick, creamy texture. Full bodied with flat to soft carbonation. One of the best ever, no doubt.
