Deep mohagany and brown color with nearly no head and not much of any lacing. Smell is coffee, slightly nutty, caramel and toffee. Coffee, burnt caramel, toffee and a slight nutty note on the back end. Thin mouthfeel is underwhelming, ok carbonation seems off and dry finish seems misplaced. Good coffee flavor, a little off on the finish and mouthfeel. The taste saves this from being a bust, but not one I'd seek out again.

Poured 12oz bottle into snifter glass. 8.3% abv. From my hometown brewery.

Appearance- Quite dark, Caramel brown in color. Minimal white head that dissipates fast.

Smell- Big hints of roasted coffee, molasses, and caramel.

Taste- Rich sugary base with sweet malt flavors. Molasses like sweetness in the middle turns to a fresh roasted coffee bean flavor that goes right through to the end of the taste. The coffee taste lingers in the palate for quite some time, and is strong, yet brilliantly fresh and clean.

Mouthfeel- Medium in body, very smooth and lively as far as feel.

Overall- A suberb coffee beer of the brown ale style. Very fresh. The coffee is strong but just enough not to be overpowering. A great sipping beer with an imperial alcohol content. Seek this one out if you're into coffee-beer. Great blend of sweetness as well.

Pour is a clear caramel brown with a small amount of tan head. Nose is slightly overly roasted coffee, roasted malts, faint sticky caramel, a bit thin. Taste is the same, it has a bit of a cola flavored coffee, overly roasted malt, a touch acrid, moderate bitterness, overly carbonated and stings the throat.
