22 ounce bottle. Pours a darker gold with a decent white head. Aroma of coffee, malt, and grain. Taste is coffee, malt, grain, grass, and a bit of spice. Enjoyable.

3.2
Beaver (1854) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 11, 2017
22 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy copper gold with a medium creamy white head that goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.



The aroma is sweet fudgy chocolate and roast coffee.



The flavor is sweet grainy malt with some washed out coffee notes and some vegetal notes. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.



Overall, I remember this being much better and more coffee forward on draft.

Bomber - it pours a clear deep golden yellow and an med off white head. The aroma is pretty straight forward with tons of fresh coffee, hint of butterscotch and burnt toast. I’m tasting a med to light body ale with massive amounts of coffee, toast and some butterscotch. Watery coffee finish. I think there’s diacetyl in this bad boy.

onceblind (10701) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Clear brilliant golden with a thin white cap. Amazing aroma of fresh dark brewed coffee and a bit of grassiness. Smooth coffee flavor with a green woody flavor and more dark roastiness and a slightly bitter dry finish with just a bit more coffee to last it out. Pretty amazing.
