Ruby-tinted brown pour with a tight off-white head. The aroma is quite coffee-laden. Herbal with a bit of light cherry as well. No astringency or vegetal notes either nor does it completely overwhelm the malts - it just lends a nice warm coffee aroma. Soft sweetness with some light sticky toffee flavour. It seems to thin a bit as it warms up but it’s still a decent brew.

On tap at Churchkey. Served in a pint glass. Pours a modest colored brown, probably closest to chestnut. Thin light tan head that persists throughout. Nose brings a really, really excellent combination of roasted brown malt and the pure essence of coffee. The two are in near perfect tandem. Taste brings the same thing, although the harmony isn’t quite as present as it was in the nose, with the coffee a bit drier and the malt not as full. Feel is really nice with a good, dry medium body. Drinks incredibly well and I love the addition of coffee to a brown ale. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-14-2010

Tap at Hop Devil, Manhattan: (3.25): Pour looks very good: a scarlet brown with a nice frothy beige head. Aroma is of coffee and some malts. Taste is almost entirely of coffee grounds with a thin beer taste in the background. Light bodied. I would have not even known that this was a brown ale, because mostly it seems like a yet unnamed, but still quite mediocre, style of beer.

Brown pour, can you believe it? Nice foamy head. The aroma is bread, earth, malt. The flavor is similar with a nice and light feel to it. Very enjoyable.

On tap at Blue Dog during Wealth of Riches. Pours a medium brown color with no head. Aroma mostly of coffee. Flavor of coffee without any creamer etc. with a bit of a hop bitterness. Didn’t really enjoy this one.

Pours a thin brown with no head. Aroma is malty with a slight coffee note. the taste is undeniably coffee with very little carbonation. Gives the impression you are drinking cold coffee. Very interesting for a brown ale. very good.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Tap at Capones. Pours a medium to deep amber with a slight brown tinge, light carbonation- thin head- some lace. Aroma is sweet coffee, toast, and caramel malts- some toffee and light earthy hops. Flavor is a bit more coffee, sweet, roast, and lightly bitter, grassy and herbal in the finish. Strange style to add coffee to, but it seemed to work ok.
