22 ounce bottle on the bus, backseat .. . pours dark brown .. light foam .. . some cheap coffee and brown bread crust .. light mouth, finish- like most highland beers .. . . then they would have been extremely uncomfortable and later on had the gnarly shit of their life.

crajun (1243) - , Texas, USA - FEB 27, 2015
bottle dated 12/13 to glass. Wonderful coffee aroma - one of the better coffee aromas... big dark brown froth head. Taste was better cold; as it warmed it seemed more watery and less flavorful. coffee was main flavor with roast....

jkwood04 (5448) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 24, 2015
22oz bottle in a teku. Pours very dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of coffee, some roasted malts with light notes of caramel and chocolate, hints of bitterness from hops, and some light dough. Flavor the same but it has a very nice balance of coffee and the beer. Average texture and carb. A pretty good beer, that was actually better than I was expecting.
