COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Classic Jersey-ism is regular coffee. Here when you order a regular coffee at any place you trust to make a pork roll and cheese you get a paper cup of coffee with milk and 2 sugars rather than a black coffee that hasnt had the caffeine removed. Acidic bitter coffee flattened by milk and sweetened; the perfect foil for the salty unctuous savor of breakfast on a roll. For our homage to Jerseys breakfast beverage, we teamed up with our neighbors at Fair Mountain Coffee Roasters looking for an elevated version of classic crappy coffee. We chose Mexican Chiapas for its bitterness akin to artichoke, roasting it a little darker than usual, along with Ethiopian Sidamo for its pleasant lemon-like acidity, which we pushed up through fermentation. We added this coffee blend to a high gravity golden cream ale, contributing our milk and 2 sugars. Drink Regular Coffee because running over a black beer with coffee is no way to get to work.

On tap at Hunah Day. Pours a hazy yellow gold with medium off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong roast coffee, burnt sugar, toffee. Thin body, similar flavors to nose, very sweet, good.

Clear golden with a flimsy short lived head... Tons of coffee and cloying sweetness.. Weird, but it works.

12oz can shared by AdamChandler. Thanks Adam! Pours golden brown with a few bubbles. Aroma is coffee syrup. Taste is just shy of coffee syrup with a bit of carbonation and booze. Nice coffee flavor, but too sweet and boozy.

12 oz. can thanks to AdamChandler. Light brown color. Aroma is a metric butt ton of coffee with just a hint of creamer.

The flavor is mostly coffee, with huge amounts of lactose sugar. This is diabetes in a can. The texture is creamy but damn, it is cloying. You can easily spilt a can 5 ways. WAY sweet.

From a can, pale yellow. Smells like acidic old cold brew with sugar. pretty unique. Nice mouthfeel, thin but hearty with flavors of coffee followed by sugar, cream, light bitterness with brown sugar. Mouthfeel is thin. Its bursting with flavor but I do not get the 12% ABV. its intense and really really nice. not sure I do an entire can.

12 ounce can. Pours a mostly clear copper orange color with a small white head. A light nose mostly of coffee and sweet malts. The flavor is big sugary coffee, a massive sweet malty base, the coffee is sugary milky and just sweet overall. Like the other version of this I had, the base is just too sweet and not flavorful enough to deal with the coffee. Its OK, but very sweet and a lot to drink.
