3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft, Poured a muddy brown in color with an offwhite head. The aroma is nutty, hints of coffee and vanilla. The flavor is much the same with additional notes of cocoa. The finish is smooth and creamy.

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.

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.

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.

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.
