Aroma: coffee and cocoa, a touch of light malts and yeast. Pours a light yellow/golden color, white head, good retention. Coffee and chocolate flavors hit first, very pleasant balance of the two, some faint hops and light malts follow, low bitterness. Light body, medium carbonation. I thought that this was quite well done - the coffee and cocoa in a light beer really shine, though the base is somewhat hidden.
Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. A keller beer with lots of strong coffee, not bad. Being a lager worked, as it makes the whole concoction drinkable. Yellow bodied.
