2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Draft at Victory. Pours a clear amber, somewhat inert with a light tan head. Toasted malt aroma with notes of nuts and caramel. Mixed with the coffee it smells almost like maple syrup. Stale coffee is prominent. Stale coffee flavor with some hops to finish. Not a fan.
