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.

Thanks to Michael for sharing this bottle. Served in a tulip.
Pours a clear brown color with a small white head and some sparse lacing on the way down. The nose brings roasted malt as well as a bit of coffee. The flavor doesn’t stray too far, offering a good amount of the included coffee as well as some roasted malt and a bit of dark chocolate in the background. Medium body with average carbonation and a slightly-dry finish. Pretty good coffee brew.
