Backlogged rating: Plenty of coffee with a bit of walnut, mocha and bredy notes. Slight spicy hop notes. Lively and pretty crisp for a coffee ale but as expected a tad thin with the coffee. Good but got one note after a while. Fredis23 (564) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - DEC 13, 2014

Pours a deep mahogany color. Interesting beer, Notes of dark brown sugar, earthy and chocolaty hops, green coffee, and toasted bread. StoreMy (29) - Nesttun, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2014
Looks reddish brown i glas, with OK light brown head. Cold coffee, wood, cinema popcorn (diacetyl) in nose. Kind of chocolateish popcorn.
Aroma confirmed in taste, with buttery finish
Worst of the Smoke Stack Series so far - earlier tastings of the series have been more than decent.

"I’m curious what this large but easy drinking ale would be like without the coffee. You get the impression it’d be good, but it’s so coffee centric that I can’t really say. Wonderful roasted coffee aromas, good body, little heat. Nice brew. Wish list cross off." Cunningham (7969) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2014
Hazy amber color with a fine tan head. Looks nice. Ok lacing. Nice aroma for coffee lovers also. I quess this beer is nothing worth trying for those who do not like coffee. Lovely smooth coffee and nutty aroma. Solid body. Tad sweet and a fine bitterness. Balanced and nice. Soft carbonation. Lots off coffee in the flavor as well. What a surprise. Balanced with some caramel and mild nutty. Maybe a bit one dimensional. But the caramel touch gave it something extra. Lovely dessert sipper.tvail4 (17) - - AUG 24, 2014
