Can. Poured black with a hint of brown and a one-finger foamy head. Great coffee aroma that comes through in the taste as well but the taste is more balanced with the ale flavor. Well done.

Pint can. Very nice iced coffee aroma! Dark nut brown color, clear, with thick white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Smooth flavor, coffee, light bitterness. Body is a little thin. Overall, it is a very nice tasting coffee. Good brown ale base with awesome coffee flavor.

Beaver (1694) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 21, 2016
16 oz can. Pours clear light ruby brown with a medium frothy light tan head that retains fairly well and leaves little lacing.

The aroma is sweet chocolate malt and roast coffee.

The flavor is a lot of roast with some sweet nutty chocolate malt and a lot of roast coffee. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a little thin.

Overall, a nice coffee beer.

If youve seen the other reviews youll know that has a really strong coffee taste. Not in a bad way but pretty intense dark flavor. I like that it comes in pint cans. A couple of these are really nice with a meal or just sipping. Im not a coffee drinker at all but this one is pretty tasty.
