Tap at Cole's in Buffalo. Pours murky gold. Flavor is tart cherry and lemon. Tart but slightly sweet at the end. Very nice. willisread (3554) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 29, 2017
Bottle from Craft Beer Cellar Clayton. Pours a clear copper with a finger and half of fluffy head. Bright orange, grapefruit and tangerine on the nose with caramel macchiatto undertones. More citrus, caramel macchiato flavors on the palate as it warms. Very nice toasted caramel notes as it warms. Rich, with some sweetness in the background and a fresh, crisp bitterness comes out in the finish. Hard to classify but pretty tasty. ajnepple (6983) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 19, 2017
12 oz single bottle from Molly's Spirits. Clear, burnt orange appearance with a sticky off-white head. Aroma of roasted coffee, earth, fruity esters, toasted malt and light citrus zest. Similar flavor, adding moderate sweetness and mild bitterness. Medium to full body. A little messy overall. oobawa (1661) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 12, 2017
Weird, man. Don't know how else to put it. Kind of like a hoppy strong ale or maybe a DIPA spiked with a shitload of medium roast coffee, but with enough restraint to keep the java from overpowering the herbaceousness of the hops or their citric backbone. And, even with all that madness going on, there's still a caramel malt base adding just enough sweetness to accentuate the acidity in the coffee and the fruitiness of the hops. This beer's complex, is what I'm getting at. Yet even with all this depth, I'm not sure it's a great beer; the back end never quite comes together, instead offering up an abrasive alcohol warmth and a overly clingy bitter fade. Coffee never quite fades from the palate, though. Curious beer from a curious brewer. Ratman197 (15228) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 8, 2017

355ml bottle. Golden pour. Aroma is nice coffee, staleish malt, and citrus hops. Flavor is kinda gummy bear-like, coffee doens't shine like it did with the aroama, there is a hershey bar flavor too. Odd stuff... rougeau13 (3158) - Richmond, Texas, USA - SEP 2, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2017 Bottle. Muddy amber with a foamy off-white cap with heavy lacing. Aroma of coffee and caramel. Tastes malty and full off coffee and just slightly bitter. Medium bodied and smooth. Very one dimensional but good.
