Tmoney99 (13896) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2017
Tap. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted sweet malt, coffee and nut aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Solid roasted sweet coffee flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good complex brew.

gephross100 (576) - Bellaire, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2016
On draft at Whole Foods. Pours amber brown with a strong off white head. Low carbonation, medium mouthfeel for a brown ale. Banana bread, light roast coffee. Long bitter finish that is kind of numbing.

jsquire (4263) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - DEC 24, 2016
Deep copper color out of the bottle with a foamy beige head. Big coffee nose. There is a lot of chocolate in here along with the rich sweetened coffee taste. Roasted grains, burnt toast, dark brown sugar with lots of that rich coffee and a bitter chocolate covered coffee bean finish. Nice coffee beer.

StoutBeerReviews (77) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 13, 2016
coffee, roasted malts, little bit of caramel and nut. very light carbonation as expected with a coffee ale. overall, nothing offensive but nothing extraordinary either. Alaskan always makes good brews, and this is another tasty one to tack on the list.

Smells great, just like coffee. Tastes a lot like coffee as well, with some nice Brown Ale qualities added in.

stevoj (4299) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 11, 2016
Bottle from Albertsons. Im not a huge fan of coffee beer, but try them anyway, for the tick. So Ive been avoiding thus one, and its actually pretty good. Dull flat pour, dark brown, tiny ring of head. Light coffee aroma, taste also features the coffee, but adds some nuttiness and a light sweetness. A really solid brown ale with light coffee notes. Smooth with a lingering bittersweet finish.

foyle (412) - Wyoming, USA - DEC 1, 2016
Poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass. A 3" cream colored head settles slowly with moderate blotchy lacing. Color is clear copper-brown with plenty of streaming bubbles. Aroma, as expected, rich roasted malt & coffee along with caramel, raisin, and citrus and herbal hops. Mouthfeel is medium with a mostly dry, somewhat astringent finish. Flavors of cocoa, coffee, toasted malt with a nice hop presence for balance. Overall another wonderful beer from Alaskan Brewing.

Aggiebob (926) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - NOV 29, 2016
Bottle. Opaque brown with a quickly dissipating off-white head. The aroma is strong coffee bean with notes of roasted malt chocolate. A little thick on the tongue with a semi-sweet finish.
