BiiruBierBeer (997) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 6, 2015
Smells of slight coffee and roast. Tastes like mild coffee with cream along with some notes that are almost like a lager and a slight bit of roast. Medium carbonation and medium body with some foam. Nothing great but its a solid brew and I give it credit for not tasting like bitter coffee grounds like a lot of coffee beers do.
