Pours a reddish brown color with a bready light canvas colored head. Notes of chocolate coffee ice cream, fresh ground beans, and cookies. Really good. Made some car bombs later in the day with this as well.

Type: 16-oz. can Glass: Clear 14.75-oz. porter/stout glass From: My cousin, Sam Price: N/A Purchased: N/A; Received on Nov. 30, 2016 Consumed: Dec. 10, 2016 Reviewed as: American Brown Ale Misc.: Canned on Aug. 29, 2016 at 9:59 a.m. CT Thanks, Sam! Had been wanting to try this one for a long time and was lucky enough to get a can from Sam. Big Surly fan and big coffee beer fan. Looking back I gave Bender a 3.88 back in the summer of 2011 but I was just starting my reviewing process then. Have some high hopes here. Poured a dark-to-light black brown color with two fingers of khaki tan frothy head. Could see a few bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Bad watery spotty lacing. Poor retention. (Sight - 2.50) Smelled bitter coffee beans, roasty malts, bitter dark chocolate, espresso, slight char wood, burnt molasses and ashtray. For the style and type of beer, nailed it. (Smell - 4.50) Taste followed the nose almost exactly. Probably had this a tad too cold. Got roasted bitter coffee malts, dark espresso, mocha, char wood, ashtray, burnt molasses, licorice, toasted toffee and hints or dark caramel. (Taste - 4.50) Medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter, roasty finish. (Feel - 4.25) Loved this one. No hiding it and a great name. I really need to start drinking coffee. (Overall - 4.50) 4.36 97 A

Old rating from CBC 2014. Beer in the glass dark brown, nice head. Fine malty-coffee aroma. Starts mild malty, fine notes of coffee, dry malty, not too intense. Earthy dry-malty finish. Not bad!

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.
