Nice mellow nose with light hints of coffee (duh) and maybe a little vanilla. The color is a warm ever so lightly milky amber. Taste is fantastic. Coffee seems to typically be used in porters and stouts and makes for a really rich and warming beer (like Speedway Stout!). This on the other hand has a great balanced body. The espresso taste is prominent but it somehow makes this beer extremely drinkable. It felt like chocolate/coffee milk but far less oily or chewy than normal coffee applications. Definitely more of an early fall session beer. I'm getting some bottles soon and am interested to see how they fare but on tap this one is fantastic!
Serving type: on-tap
