4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an opaque black with a thick creamy head of tan foam. Nose is coffee. Nice and creamy on the palate, the coffee flavor is front and center on first tasting with no hops bitterness detected. Great brew to pair with a breakfast/brunch of fried bluegills and hash browns.
12oz bottle. The aroma isn’t so bad, chocolate and specialty malt is an ally of the shabby brewer. Opaque brown black, bit sugary sweet chocolate tinged aroma. Is actually a drinkable product, not up to par, but drinkable and acceptable. Chocolate, caramel, toasty vanilla graham cracker. The flavors aren’t bad, but the body is lifeless, lacks depth or brewing finesse. Brown sugar malta. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 25, 2009
On tap at GTMW. Poured medium iced tea brown with a tall cap of beige head.. crystal-clear. The aroma picked up artificially-sweetened caramel and milky chocolates with a touch of vanilla.. smelled a bit cheap, but was non-offensive. The flavor found sweet milky notes, chocolate, and toasty black malts accented by vanilla and light smoke.. too sweet for my liking. Medium-bodied with high carbonation on the palate.. not great, but serviceable. Skyview (6093) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Sampled on draught at the GTMW ’08. Pours a semi-clear dark brown brew with a thin beige head that slowly dissipates to a fine film and thin off-white ring. Aroma of mostly roasted dark coffee and a little dark malt in the background. Taste has more character than its aroma with flavors of toasted dark malt, coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla and some roasted nuts. Finish has mostly a semi-sweet coffee aftertaste but the flavor disappears quite fast. phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Basing this soley on the style, very dissapointing. However overall a decent refreshing beer. Pours an almost clear reddish brown colour with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet, nutty- with light milk chocolate, roasted nuts and coffee beans. Flavors are delightful, creamy, vanilla and coffee notes. Like i said, nice beer- just way too weak for the style.

On tap at Fox River Brewing company in Appleton. Appearance od a deep dark brown with no head whatsoever. Seriously, it looks like a cola. Aroma of freshly ground coffee and light notes of chocolate. Taste is light coffee and chocolate with a acrid vegetable taste. Lacks any real carbonation. Finish is water. Yuck.
