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.

S. Coffee roasts, nuttiness, lightly toasted malt and grains.
T. Creamy rich coffee and oatmeal, lovely roasted flavors, toasted caramel and toffee sweetness.
M. Well balanced, rich flavor.
O. Great brown, love the boldness of the coffee and the smoothness of the oatmeal

Iced coffee in the winter! Great flavor and color. Aromas of coffee and chocolate. Light in body. Flavor carries through from beginning to a long aftertaste. Could drink all day if the ABV were lower.

This is an exceptional brew, but it really is overpowered by the coffee. The thing is, this doesn't take away from the beverage at all- it enhances it nearly perfectly. As far as the ABV- it's refreshing to have a sipping beer that does not have the sweet, syrupy qualities of a barleywine etc; being that those beers are usually not for me, this does rather well in the same role.
