Weyerbacher November - 7.7% ABV - 46 IBU - 22 SRM - 12oz Bottle
Pours a dark brown with creamy sticky head and lots of carbonation. Aroma is coffee and malt with some toffee. Taste is smooth clean coffee, carmel, oats and malt. The coffee flavor becomes more proximate as the beer warms. This is as good as any coffee infused beer I’ve tasted, its not harsh or bitter. Superb mouthfeel and very drinkable. Really enjoyable brown ale, or as Weyerbacher calls it, "Imperial Breakfast Brown Ale". Only 60 cases bottled.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep brown with loads of amber coming through when held to the light. Poured with a head foamy light tan sticky lacing head. Aroma of light roasted coffee, American hops, toasted and caramel malt and nuts. Flavor of toasted malt, a light roasted character, some piney hop notes, nuts, caramel and light roasted coffee. Coffee is certainly there. Brown ale base is a solid beer as well. Not overdone in any respect. I would have liked to see this a bit more "creamy" given it’s suppose to have some oatmeal in there.
