Rich, coffee and espresso notes, light bitterness. Pours a dark, opaque brown with a thick beige head that dies to a thin cap leaving some splotchy lacing. The nose is rich, roasty and nutty with a light toffee malt. Coffee and french roast espresso. Complex but well balanced with light bitterness, mild sweetness. reebtogi (6261) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 27, 2015
500ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a generous light beige head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is coffee and roasted grains with some chocolate notes. Taste is a coffee and roasted grain bitterness with a chocolate malty sweetness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, a well crafted brew with a nice balance of bitter and sweet. Recommended. BrewTom (660) - - JUL 4, 2015
Medium brown hue. Burnt toffee nose with molasses. Sweet with plenty of chocolate & a hint of coffee. Quite a bitter end too. Lovely.

Poured from bottle. Pours like a typical brown ale. Doesn’t retain a lot of head.
Smell - Loads of coffee! I really like the smell of the coffee, you can tell its gonna be good.
Taste - wow! Who would have thought a coffee brown ale, could have as much depth as a stout. This is a great beer. Taste follows the nose beautifully. It’s a little thin on the palate, but it’s a brown ale, not a stout, so that’s expected. If you’re a coffee lover, you’ll love this. I put this right up there with some of the top coffee stouts. So well balanced. You would never guess this is 8%, the alcohol is extremely well hidden. Highly recommend. jjgmd (2161) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2015
With Z, pours a ’ semi clear ’ rusty brown color with an ethereal Java head. Nose is fresh coffee grinds with some mocha in the background. Taste is sweet coffee with sugary mocha notes. Finishes on the same sweet coffee notes with a moderately long finish. Drinks quite easily, and would have guessed a much lower ABV . Quaff score 8 / 10

Bottle. Pours a clear brown with a tan head and nice strong roasted coffee aroma. Taste is full of coffee up front. Nice roasted bitterness, chocolate, and caramel with sweet, hoppy notes and coffee filled finish. Very drinkable coffee brown ale DedicatedToFun (4000) - Santa Monica, California, USA - MAY 17, 2015

>> Amber brown pour, weak yellow foam. Nose is green pepper, jalapeños, that bell pepper style of old grindy coffee. Taste is weak, mealy apple, dusty, old bottle probably, brown sugar, tea flavor finish.
This is good, but I’m not a huge hoppy brown ale fan and the coffee doesn’t seem to add anything to me. Appearance is great with a huge tan head that slowly settles some lace, and a clear amber brown color. Aroma is a faint brown ale. Flavor is basically a coffee flavored hoppy brown ale. Body is good. I’ll drink this one, but don’t want another. Shark_Pants (742) - AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2015
On tap at the Local Taphouse, Darlinghurst. Cola colour with small beige head. Coffee and toffee aromas, with the taste reflecting the same notes, with some bourbon notes too. Quite light bodied, increasing the drinkability. Enjoyable and fairly well balanced between bitter and sweet.
