Of all coffee beers I've ever had, this one unquestionably smells the most like fresh coffee. It really smells amazingly like iced coffee. And that's about all I get out of the aroma here, which is just fine because it's pretty awesome.
Pours black in my pint glass with a fair head....which dissipates fairly rapidly.
The taste is of perhaps the most coffee tasting beer I've ever had. Unlike many other coffee beers, which are often stouts, this is a lot thinner and really just seems a lot like an iced coffee. I read about how it's made, and it is apparently steeped in coffee beans for 24 hours. It certainly shows. If you're looking for deep complexity in a coffee beer, I'd say to keep looking. If you want a beer that's really a dead ringer for a cold coffee beverage that you'd get at a coffee shop...here you are!
