COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewmaster Bill and One Village Coffee Chief Roaster Woody DeCasere found themselves at Victory talking about their two favorite beverages. The result is this seductive brown ale built to exhibit the fruity notes of fair trade, organic Honduras Los Tuneles Microlot beans, carefully roasted and cold brewed at Victory to meld beautifully with our lush brown ale.

Ok. So this rating is based on the craziness of this beer. Everything minus the temp and thickness is coffee. It smells tastes and texture is coffee. Insanely made.

Draft. Dark and smells of chocolate and coffee. I truly loved this brew. I hope it doesn’t get put on the shelf.

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - OCT 20, 2011
Medium brown with a nice off-white head. Aroma is mostly coffee upfront with background malts and light toast. Medium bodied. Flavor does remind me of a cup of coffee, however that is not to say it is like drinking a coffee. Finish has medium hop bitterness. Very much a light brown ale with coffee in the mix. Not an over the top roasted coffee flavor like so many coffee stouts but a more relaxed coffee flavor that is very evident but not harsh. Easily sessionable, interesting and enjoyable.

Clear brown small white head, ... coffee aroma, light malts, light bitter aroma.... lots of coffee flavor, light easy drinking, pretty much tastes like cold coffee, dry finish, decent, but doesnt bring much more to the table than coffee flavor, good but less complex than furthermore oscura...

On draft at Capone’s, where it was called Victory Village Coffee. I think it is supposed to remind you of a fresh cup of coffee from a little village coffee shop, or something like that. It seemed more like a coffee porter than a BA to me. Pretty light and malty with a some coffee spunk. I was expecting a strong, cold weather brew, but you could enjoy this in mid-summer.

GT2 (8742) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Tap at Capone’s and later at Victory. Pours a clear amber red with not much of a head. Nose is muted green coffee. Taste is cold, bitter, gritty coffee. Watery though clean mouthfeel. Good session beer underneath but coffee addition is just not needed. Pretty harsh as coffee beers go.

MrChopin (3474) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 16, 2011
translucent tan brown, head of heavy off-white lacing and thin top. Lightly green coffee, a bit astringent. Flavor similar, strong coffee grinds, light smoke through finish. Lighter body, nice carbonation keeping profile light.

reggiedunlop (3224) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2011
Pours a very clear amber with a medium tan head...nice lacing. Very subtle aroma has notable coffee and light roastiness. Flavor is slightly nutty and loaded with coffee but not bitter. Mouthfeel is fairly light and lively with a lightly roasted coffee finish. Tasty.

Goodgrief (1812) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - OCT 12, 2011
Clear brown pour, smallish head. Strong aroma of coffee and the taste followed suit. Almost the character of iced coffee. Some caramel malt is distinguishable under all the coffee. One dimensional, but I liked it.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2011
Draft at Capone’s. Pours hazy brown with nose of earthy malt, significant coffee, hops. Tasted malty, brown sugary, with a medium coffee flavor, a good deal of backup hops, and a smooth finish.
