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.

DeputyAndy (636) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2010
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 (5074) - 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.

On tap at Caponeís. Poured a deep amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of coffee with some roastiness. Tastes of roast, coffee, chocolate, and some caramel. Nice and drinkable.

EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 5, 2010
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.

Draft at Caponeís with James. Pours chestnut brown with a thick, creamy tan head. Nice lace. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts, and more coffee. Medium bodied with a palate just like a cup of cold black coffee. Really intersting brown.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2011 Draft at Caponeís with pat. Pours a hazy brown body with thin white lacing. Araoma is delicious coffee roast. Mouthfeel is smooth and appropriately carbonated with super notes of coffee roast. I burped afterwards and thought I had drank a cup of coffee.

dagimp (915) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2010
On tap at Teresaís next door. Poured into a pint glass. Light, clear brown with little to no thin head. Not much aroma, but what was there was of coffee and light alcohol. Mouthfeel was very fizzy and light. Taste was of coffee, water, some light sugar, coffee, urine and more coffee. If you like coffee, you may like this beer. I like coffee and I thought this beer was crap. I like the idea of Victory mixing coffee with something lighter than a porter or stout, but this just didnít work. Hopefully, this will be a one-off and put to bed quickly. I drank about half my pint and left the rest. Too bad, one of the two bad beers Iíve had by Victory... canít win em all.

On draft at Capones. Pours a dark yet clear maple color with a medium sized frosty cream colored head. Aroma of roasted coffee beans and nuts. Taste dominated by watery roasted coffee beans. Has a nutty aftertaste.
