Ratebeer tasting. Pale blonde body, mild haze copious bone white head. Aromas of coffee, assorted nuts, malt, chocolate. Such chocolate and coffee flavor is surprising from such a light colored beer. Really tasty. solidfunk (8949) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 15, 2015

12oz bottle shared that poured a clear yellow with small white head. Aroma is mocha, vanilla and coffee. Mild malt base. This is a strange combination but yet refreshingly good. The flavors blends very well together with the mocha being the dominant flavor followed by the vanilla and then mild coffee. Couldn’t drink a lot of this but it is very good.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden color. Aroma and taste are really nice coffee and some vanilla. jercraigs (10374) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2015
2015-07-04. Crisp yellow body with a small white head. 3+ Aroma is interesting, lovely mocha notes and roasty coffee character. 7++ Flavour has similar coffee roast character, light mocha, underlying sweet pale malt. Average plus bodied palate, carbonation. Surprisingly good considering I don’t typically care for coffee flavours. On tap at HopCat, Detroit.

Poured from a bottle.
Aroma is fairly sweet with a cream-like aroma with some light grain notes. An off vegetable note which I assume is the coffee. Some light vanilla.
Pours a somewhat clear, gold with a small, moderately thick, white head that recedes fairly quickly to the edges where a thin film lingers. Moderate lacing and small legs.
Flavor is sweet, but less than I was expecting from the aroma. Some light grain notes. Moderate creamer-like sweet notes with some vanilla present. The weird vegetable note from the aroma isn’t here, but there also isn’t really any coffee. As it warms some light coffee appears, but it really tastes like beer with some vanilla flavored creamer. Medium light bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Light astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, another not great beer from this brewery. It’s really weird as the coffee character is rather faint, but the other flavors and aromas are very pronounced. marcus (10222) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 11, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2015 Bottle from Locke’s Party Shoppe. Pours dark blonde with a modest white head and a floral coffee aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with lots of coffee. Ani interesting and tasty brew.
