12 oz can from Bergen Park Liquors. Copper appearance with a white head. Malty, smooth, semi-sweet and creamy with light fruity notes. The coffee aspect is pretty minimal. Pretty clean and easy to drink. It was just OK, overall.

Pour on tap, slightly hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, hints of earth, slight buttery bread, some coffee in there as well. Taste is a mix of coffee, buttery bread, caramel, toffee, slight earthy, spicy note, finishing fairly sweet.

Beaver (1264) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2014
12 oz can. Pours clear copper orange with a big bubbly white head that goes to a thin film and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet biscuity caramel and toffee malts with some chocolate and coffee. Smells like dessert.

The flavor is nutty biscuit malts with some sweet roast coffee. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a nice coffee beer. The sweet coffee goes well with the nutty caramel malts. Reminds me of NBB Giddy Up.

Clear pale copper with a small foamy white head. Nose of sweet clove and a light cappuccino tone with a slight tone of cinnamon. Flavor is nice and sweet an earthy with a nice combination of lightly brewed coffee and biscuity caramel. Very unique and quaffable.

On tap at the brewpub on 10/15/07: Pours a clear orange bronze with a thin, wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of grainy pale maltiness with a mild sweetness and some earthy hops. Body starts with a mild malty sweetness and some graininess and earthy bittering hops. Finishes slightly roasty, drier and bittersweet. An interesting brew.

Tap @ Wynkoop. Hazy deep golden color with a small lacy off-white head. Caramel and bready malt aroma with some earthy notes. Hint of coffee underneath. Malty caramel with a mild coffee finish. Some hops mix in as well. Thatís a good thing because it would seem odd with more. Light to medium body.

Ernest (6142) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2007
Draught, Wynkoop. Head is mostly diminishing. Body is light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly hoppy (apricot), moderately yeasty (dough, sweat). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Very yeasty with a poor aftertaste. Not enjoyable.
