3.18/5 rDev -22.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 1 | overall: 2.5
This beer poured a murky dark brown with a tan head and lots of a head to this beer is really carbonated through the murky brown i can see bubble shooting toward the top like champagne.
smell, for me not much here trying to detect anything other than old coffee. thats all i seem to pick out
taste/ back up i have to do mouthfeel first this is way overcarbonated hurts cant pick out the flavors like drinking a sprite.
back to taste now that i am prepared: i get day old ice coffee as the flavor, almost nothing else maybe a slight tinge of vanilla
i am really surprised this beer has such a good rating not my favorite.

Appearance - Pours a deep brown with auburn highlights and a finger's worth of khaki head. Fair retention, resulting in a broken layer of surface suds. Leaves a decent amount of lacing around the glass, though most slides .
Smell - Freshly roasted coffee ground aroma, backed by a lesser scent of caramel. Light cream with faint chocolate notes.
Taste - Follows the nose. Big, natural coffee flavor. Caramel finds a nice niche, while hints of vanilla and cream bounce off the middling roasty attributes. Touches of nuttiness and chocolate in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Nice, smooth finish.
Overall - Really solid coffee-infused brew. Delivers more than just a 'cold coffee' experience. My heart tells me a deeper roasted flavor would be nice, but my brain tells me this is a brown, so I shouldn't expect that. A fine brown it is.
