A very good brown ale. Potent coffee character. Surprisingly acidic. Dark brown and delicious sweet. mrjaxson (586) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 16, 2016
What I liked most was the balance, but I expected this to be more explosive. The coffee and chocolate scents were there, but the body approached a milk stout, which seemed out of place. Sweet finish that had a pleasant duration.
