Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. A very dark brown beer with ruby red highlights and a rapidly disappearing tan head. It has rich floral and fruity coffee flavours, chocolate hints and a fruity and roasted finish. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a thick frothy light tan head. Nose is light and malty with some coffee elements to it. Taste is a little bitter from the coffee, but an easy drink. gunnfryd (14961) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 28, 2013

500ml bottle from Bieropholie.RichTheVillan (7912) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2013
Appearance : Dark brown with small head. Short lived head.
Aroma : Big coffee with light acidic notes. Roasted and slightly ashy. Light roasted caramel.
Taste : Coffee and caramel. Piny resinous hops. Finish has lots of coffee with resinous hops. Persistent coffee and hops. Finish is rather bitter, bitterness coming from both coffee and hops.
Palate : Soft carbonation.
Overall : Coffee is taking most of the space. Hops are complimenting the coffee rather well. Despite being black this is closer to a coffee stout than a brown ale but maybe it’s just me. Lots of flavour, nice coffee notes but not exactly what I was expecting from this brown ale.
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; dark brown pour with thin beige head, definite coffee aroma, coffee taste does what it says on the bottle, heavily carbonated, very good brown almost poterish.

strong aroma of coffee and chocolate. roasty, toasty. malts. Initial sip starts a little malty, bitter, and ends very smooth chocolate/coffee. Leaves a strong coffee taste In your mouth, as if you just had your last sip of morning coffee. beerbaaron (1998) - Arizona, USA - APR 12, 2013
Unclear medium brown, Large frothy beige head, lasting with lace. Delicious fresh coffee bean aroma with some roasted malt and smoke, chocolate. Medium to full body. Smooth and creamy, clean hoppy finish. Roasty. Fantastic coffee flavor. Love that the coffee actually has the center stage. Everything I hope for in a coffee beer. suprchunk (2994) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Dark brown pour. No head. A couple bubbles, if that. Obviously no lacing. Nice aroma of coffee, some heavy mineral type aroma - like chalk and copper. Heavy coffee flavor with some chocolate maltiness. A bit carbonic. Dry, yet a little sweet. Not too bad. DocLock (10721) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Bombers from Capone’s and Smith’s. Pours dark brown, looking deep ruby through direct light, and a 1-finger off-white head. Nose is heavy on the crystal and choc malt, big hop smell, and some perfumy florals. Tastes very hoppy, with coffee, cacao, an assertive malt presence, and more hops and well integrated coffee flavor in the finish. As with all 8 Wired beers I have quaffed thusfar, this one is well made and complex and thoroughly enjoyable from beginning to end. DylansDad (646) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 18, 2013
Milky coffee with just a hint of vanilla combined with a beautiful hoppy malty ale. Say no more. Not a novelty, a real beer that I will definitely seek out to have again. Delicious.
