12oz bottle. Medium beige head atop hazy red-brown body. Aroma is moderately sweet, coffee, caramel, some roast/earthy. Taste is moderately sweet, coffee, some caramel, roast, some chocolate, light coffee bitter. Light-medium body, light stickiness, acidity. rxeight (3082) - Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Meh, not a huge fan of this one. Light in body, coffee is strong but doesnt mix as well as with stouts. Lots of carmel. novels (424) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2013
A pretty interesting take on a coffee beer. Very refreshing and light, crisp. Pretty balanced, despite the toffee and smooth nutty undertones, still a cold one. Pretty good. tmoreau (4365) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2013
On tap at the Old Fashioned in Madison, WI., and dispensed to a cold shaker (too crowded to bother sending back) showing a cloudy, amber brown, (less the frost) modest, tan head that quickly diminished to a ring & film, and light, patchy lacing. The nose was very roasted coffee, some baker’s chocolate, and a light malt presence. Medium bodied with good effervescence, my initial impression was "iced coffee" before reading any description. Medium hop bitterness built as the beer warmed. Lightly sweet, but didn’t notice much flake/creaminess. Finished with a decent astringency and dryness. Not on the steady diet list, but interesting.

First off, kudos to Furthermore for their uniquely named beers as this one certainly caught my eye in the mix and match section. This is a beer with 100% fair trade coffee, or as the bottom of the bottle reads “A Nicaraguan all-female growers co-op (stop) A lusciously aromatic just coffee roast (stop) Our warm-fermented, cold-lagered cerveza oscura (huh?)” Did you understand all that?
It pours a medium brown color with a light brown head. The aroma is mostly coffee to the degree that if we did a blind smell test, you would never guess this was a beer. Overall it is very inviting for the coffee beer lovers. This just might rival some of the best coffee beers that Wisconsin has to offer.
The taste is smooth yet quite bold. Once again is this beer of coffee? The texture is very much like a beer but the coffee flavoring overpowers the malts and hops. It is quite unique as you usually only see coffee used in stouts and porters instead of an American lager. It leaves behind a mild coffee after taste.
This was a pretty interesting find. It’s not something I am going to want all the time, but it is certainly a well made, good tasting brew. The creativity to put coffee into a lager was a good choice as this turned out to be a pretty damn good coffee beer especially since I’m not a coffee drinker. Keep up the good work Furthermore.

A dark hazy amber, small creamy tan head. Aroma is coffee, some milk chocolaty sweetness, some nuttiness. Creamy medium body, very clean and smooth. Flavor is just delicious. Creamy nutty coffee, light milk chocolate, slightly bitter hop finish. Very enjoyable. MarinEvelyn (854) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 27, 2013
auburn color. scents of chocolate and coffee. smooth, strong coffee flavor. hints of chocolate burgy (456) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Aroma starts and finishes with coffee beans. Appearance is lighter than I expected in a burnt orange variant with a white head that lingers in wisps. Taste starts with a mild sourness and subtly coffee flavors. Overall, this is a pleasant beer but not one I want a 6-er of. kaser (6312) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Bottle. Dark but see thru pour. Very thin. No head. Not much aroma. Big taste. Coffee upfront but a smooth bourbon like sweet finish. Good beer

Excellent overall beer - the coffee flavor is noticeable but does not take on the bitter flavor of many coffee stouts. It’s a refreshing beer for such a complex profile. Good toasty caramel flavor, nice bitterness that falls off at the finish, and a clean creamy pour.
