I recently had this beer at The Washington House in Sellersville, PA. This beer is brewed in Perkasie, PA and the brewery itself is only about 2 miles away.

Served in a goblet-like glass

A - Beer arrived with a half-finger, mocha-colored head. It's a very deep brown, almost black color, totally opaque. Nice lacing left after drinking.

S - A nice coffee aroma

T - A huge coffee presence mixed with some chocolate-like sweetness. The beer is rather bitter but it goes down really smooth. The oatmeal isn't really noticeable. The ABV is slightly noticeable but never overpowers the beer.

M - A medium body. Medium carbonation. Leaves a slightly bitter aftertaste

O - I really enjoyed this beer. The brewery is less than 3 miles from my home and I'd gladly pick up a growler of this. I've had several of Free Will's offerings and I've been impressed with them all.

Cheers!

On tap at Canal St. Pub, Reading, PA.

Mahogany brown color, semi-translucent, with a small tan head that receded to a ringlet; minor lacing on the glass. Cold coffee grounds in the nose, toasted bread, caramel malts. About what I'd expect from a coffee brown ale. Taste was similar, cold pressed coffee, caramel malts, somewhat nutty, toasted oats and rye (though I'm not sure any actual rye was used in this beer), with a slight herbal bitterness in the finish. Body was medium, a bit thinner than I'd expect from an oatmeal beer, but about on par for a typical brown ale. Overall pretty decent. Good if you like coffee, good if you like brown ales.
