Deep mahogany body with a thick light tan colored white head. Super lacing as well.
Lots of dry nutty English Nut Brown type smells. Loads of whole coffee beans (slightly hazelnut I do believe). Slightly creamy with strong diacetyl notes as well.
Very bitter coffee up front. All bitter espresso. Not coffee beans, but straight espresso bitterness. Sharp metallic twang cuts off the coffee notes. Following up that, is the base beer. Dry nutty roasty malts dominate, but not too much. Still get a bit of the coffee flavors here as well. Finishes dry and chewy. Very nutty late.
Feels like a malty cup of coffee, honestly. I like it. The only thing you can compare it to is maybe Cubano Espresso Brown from Cigar City. Matter of fact, theyre pretty close (and both tasty as hell).
Serving type: can

Appearance: Poured into a pint glass. dark with an nice head.
Smell: Coffee and beer.
Taste: This beer is good if you show some self control. Burn through a four pack and it starts to lose it's appeal. Coffee and beer, with chocolate notes. Very good coffee beer.
Drinkability: This beer delivers if you only have one or two. Not something you want to hang out with all night. Clean finish and great on a hot day. Slightly heavy, but enjoyable.
