A: Lighter than expected - clear dark brown, burgundy/mahogany edges. Has a really pillowy beige head.
S: HUGE coffee - smells exactly like an iced coffee but fuller. I love coffee but am not a big iced coffee fan, so this isn't the greatest coffee smelling beer to me personally, but very impressive. Very raw, heavily roasted and kind of burnt coffee beans. Wow, quite something.
T: Much of the same - like drinking a fuller bodied and carbonated iced coffee. There are some nutty/caramel notes coming through, but not much. Very raw, heavily roasted coffee beans - a bit too burnt.
P: Light/medium bodied, soft and comfortable carbonation. Appropriate to the aroma and taste. Oddly very refreshing
O: This is quite a beer. I love coffee beers, though I have only had coffee infused imperial stouts up to this point, which I prefer because there are other elements balancing and enriching the coffee flavor. This is just straight coffee. Would be great in the morning
Serving type: can
