3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle courtesy as an extra from a recent trade. Thanks! Pours a ruch well hazed dark copper brownish hue. Frothy beige head, sizable overall sticks around and laces small. Aromas are crisp toast, toffee, roasty earthy coffee elements. Touches of cocoa, some druit fruit, biscuits, coffee element meshes well with toasty and sweet malt. Initial is medium bodied, perhaps a touch lighter as the front end offers toast, toffee, coffee roast, cold coffee. Some cocoa, firm brown malt presence, biscuits. Toasty and mellow with a firm sweetness into the middle, offering more toast and coffee elements firmly into the backend. Coffee, toast, mellow sweetness. Flavorful, simple, enjoyable. Coffee element gave this a bit of life. Solid, lost a point overall for coming in such a big ABV package for itís simplicity

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 doesnít 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.

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 itís suppose to have some oatmeal in there.

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!
