Bottle. pours cloudy dark orange with lost of sediment a nice beige head that thins fast leaving decent lacing. Aroma is wood, turpentine, dark malt, leather, molasses and burnt coffee. kinda funky. Taste is light sweet, medium bitter, thin to oily body, average to lively carbonation, flavors of burnt coffee & wood, with a lightly bitter finish. Doesn’t do it for me. b3shine (9079) - Indiana, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks decent; a transparent deeper golden orange with thin off-white lacing. Smells solid; coffee, malt, and oak with some nuttiness as well. Tastes like it smells with an average, slightly bitter mouthfeel. Could have more body, but enjoyable nonetheless. GnarlyGnome (770) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Draft: hazy orange pour with a small to tiny off white head. I need more of this... I struggle because it’s wonderfully delicious, but I have had a hard time finding much else in either the flavor or the aroma other than coffee. That being said... The coffee flavor is awesome. This is the best breakfast beer I have had. phaleslu (10553) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Draft in a sampler at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a semi-cloudy orange-gold with a small off-white head. Aroma of coffee, toasted malts, tobacco, and citrus. Flavor of coffee, toasted malts, some mellow fruits, tobacco, and straw. Pretty straightforward in that it’s a coffee beer. Medium-bodied, with a dry, malty mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Pretty interesting. Worked for me. kaser (6360) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 12, 2013

Bottle from Ölbutikken, bought in October 2013.
A bit hazy amber with a medium head. Aroma and taste of nuts, light coffee, some wood, caramel and some yeast. The finish was fairly sweet and with a light bitterness.

Bottle from csteele2144. An amber with a twist. Amber colored with a small beige head. Smells of toasted malt, coffee, caramel, and just a little wood. Medium-bodied with flavors of toasty caramel, coffee, nuts, wood, and earthy hops in the finish. Some pretty nice depth as shown by some citrus deep in the background. The wood is more subtle than I expected but it mixes in and lingers. Soft carbonation. Interesting beer; a coffee ale without the creamy aspects. I didn’t love this but it was pretty fun to try. Certainly better than your run-of-the-mill Amber Ale. pete4999 (1445) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep dark brown with tons of yeast at the bottom. Smells sharply of coffee...sweet coffee, light roast. But it almost has a little bit of tropical flavor on it underneath the coffee...in a good way. This is strong on the coffee but surprisingly light. Nicely done. boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Draft at bistro on bridge. Pours hazy reddish brown with a small off white head. The aroma has cinnamon, nutmeg, coffee. The taste has a lot of coffee, cinnamon, grinds, Nice balance. The oakiness comes through in the finish.
