On tap at the Map Room, cause this place is sweet.

Pours a murky brown with very little head.

I don't get too much aroma but it's certainly a pleasant coffee presence.

The flavor is wonderful. There'the typical fruity sweetness you come to expect from an alt. Namely, there's a nice mix of cherry and raisin. What really sets this beer apart is the coffee. It tastes more like a cold brewed coffee, although I'm not sure what their process was.

Really great beer that's probably not going to be around for long, so drink up.

On tap at the brew pub.

A: pours a bronze amberish hue with an average sized tan head. Okay retention and some spotty lace.

S: The aroma is all about coffee. Bold bitter coffee with some underlying hops.

M: Wow a unique take an an Altbier. Bold coffee up front. Not overly bitter. It is more Americano than Espresso. There is some nice caramel malt in the middle with hints of hazelnuts. The finish has just a bit of bittering hops. Rather nice actually.

M: Medium in body, smooth, with perfect carbonation.

D: Really liked this one, but hated that they served it in a 1/2 pint glass. Would liked to get a bit more per serving.

Had on-tap at Three Floyds 11/28/08 into a half pint glass.

Appearance was orange amber with a minimal off-white head that left minimal lacing.

Aroma was of light caramel and lots of coffee.

Taste was similar with caramel flavors up front with a big fresh coffee taste but it is never harsh and roasty. As FFF described it, the coffee is used in place of roasted malts and it works very well. There is also a slight citrus on the backend.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, cirsp, and very drinkable.

This was one tasty beer from FFF. This is one that I really hope ends up bottled.

I had this one on tap today at the FFF Brewpub in Munster, IN.

A= This ale poured an extremely clear copper color with basically zero head. Even with a bit of swirling after the beer had warmed, very little head/carbonation release could be coaxed from this beer. Minor lacing present.

S= This ale smelled entirely of sweet caramel malts upfront. Mild coffee in the aroma as well.

T=What a surprise this beer was! As the nose indicated , this ale was sweet and malty upfront, but threw a lovely roasted coffee bitterness in towards the end of each swallow. Because the coffee bite hid until the end, this seemed like a very sweet brew even thought it wasn't completely so. Nicely balanced.

MF= Medium bodied with a crisp carbonation level. A real palate cleanser!

D= I was surprised by how good this beer was. I could easily drink a few or more of these and not have palate fatigue from the coffee. Very good and highly recommended!!!
