3.83/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

pours a dark reddish brown with a finger of head which quickly dissipates. smell is of a sweet brown ale with lots of coffee bean and vanilla. slight oak notes. the flavr is of a roasty bitterness up front, followed by a nice sweet malty profile topped off instantly by a bitter coffee flavor. nutty notes in the finish. medium body, slightly watery feel yet smooth and somewhat creamy, low carbonation.

i was expecting a little bit more of a mindblowing experience from this one since i hear great things about this brewery, and to be honest the label artwork was so bad ass! i wasn't all that impressed, though it is a nice tasty dessert beer. i believe i paid $5 (plus the shipping cost to get this in nj), which i would say not worth it to do again, but i am glad i finally got to try it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: dark brown beer with a finger of beige head

S: a true coffee smell, as opposed to the more common espresso smells

T: bready malts and fresh brewed coffee, some toffee and musky, woodsy tones

M: medium body, medium carbonation, little chalky coffee on the aftertaste

O: an average brew - not bad, but nothing really stood out about the beer; not being a devotee of the style, I tried to score it a little higher than my initial impressions would have dictated. My bias: I think I am partial to the notion that coffee flavors in beer are best suited to porters and stouts. This was not a beer I'd return to, but I would not discourage someone else from trying it.

4.13/5  rDev +10.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Brown pour with a red tint. Good clarity. Lacing is non-existant and hte foamy head settled fast.

S - Really impressed with the fresh scent of ground coffee beans. The smell is like a fine espresso in a french cafe. There is a slight smell of sweet malts. Hard to find any fault with this beer.

T - Initial sweetness of sugar is balanced by the bitterness of fresh coffee. Seriously; where do they get these coffee beans? This is some good stuff. Not much else in the flavor but this is a simple beer that just tastes good.

M - If it was late night at a pub I'd be all over this beer. In other situations the coffee flavor my be a bit much. Slight coating on the tongue. Balance and carbonation seems about right.

O - Almost like Peche Mortel's younger brother. A solid coffee infused beer that does one thing, and does it well.
