3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Coffee a touch of toast and nutty notes, light sweetness also. Pours dark brownish, thin head, some auburn undertones. Flavor is coffee, light caramel/toasted nut malt sweetness, dry earthiness, with lingering light coffee ground finish. No sign of 7.3% Flavorful, somewhat interesting, cool to try.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Pours an appropriately dark brown color with a finger and a half of tan head.
S: I can certainly tell this is a coffee beer right away. Lots of coffee aroma without much else. Some earthy notes which could be the coffee or some hops. Just a mild sweetness to the nose.
T: Mostly coffee in terms of the flavor, as well. There is a bit of a coffee grounds type of flavor to this beer. Again, only a mild to moderate sweetness with some molasses and bread being the malt flavors.
M: Medium in body with a moderate carbonation.
O: The coffee flavor wasn’t all that impressive in this beer, though it was certainly the dominant flavor component.

pours chestnut brown with a sized light tan head...nice lacing and retention. very nice aroma...slightly sweet with coffee, milk chocolate, and a hint of raisin. flavor is not nearly as sweet as the aroma suggests...lots of coffee, very roasty with a hint of burnt toffee. mouthfeel is very creamy (was oatmeal used?) and lively with a lingering roasted coffee finish. best weyerbacher brew ive had thus far for sure!

A reddish brown ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, a nice caramel malt with light vinous notes, light hopping. In mouth, a nutty malt with chocolate beans, not bad, medium bodied. On tap at Datz, Jan. 8 2011.

Didn’t like this one much. Wasn’t expecting this to be another lackluster beer from Weyer. I do love a few of their offerings thou. This one just didn’t taste like I had expected nor was it something I want to experience again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Mikro: This one poured an opaque, mahogany brown color. There was about a finger of a tan head that was a little bit frothy.
It left some lacing. It has a nice nose. Coffee and roastiness were the most dominant. Perhaps a bit of caramel malt trying to get through. It has an interesting taste. Lots of coffee flavor, with some roastiness. There is a touch of bitterness. Nice!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. brown bottle thanks to fbm115. A dark reddish-brown beer with a real good looking head. the aroma is somewhat smokey, roasted coffee, and its smokey character makes it kind of meaty. The taste has some coffee and the first drink was moderately creamy and has a low bitterness in the end but enough to be detectable with some coming from the coffee. Leaves good lacing.

draft @ redlight redlight. Coffee on the nose. Pours a dark amber, brown with solid off white head. Bitter coffee upfront with hints of roasted malts and chocolate, heavy caramel and molasses notes with fresh coffee. Not bad!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dull, medium brown with a sticky beige head which faded quickly. Tremendous coffee aroma. Not quite like a coffee stout but certainly appropriate for a coffee infused brown ale. Taste was lightly sweet, like vanilla and cream, with a late bitterness. Medium bodied. In my opinion brown ales can be pretty basic but this takes the style up a notch.
