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.

the only way i can describe this beer is coffee pickles. the smell was reminiscent of stale espresso grounds, and it tasted like it was brewed with pickling brine. me and a friend each had a single sipped and dumped it.

Great coffee aroma. The body was alot lighter than I expected but still pleasant as it didn't over power the beer.

Pours a deep cloudy brown with a thin beige head. Aroma is a wonderful sweet coffee essence with some caramel and maple undertones. Taste is sweet caramel maple and sweet coffee candy and a bit of mild espresso bitterness. Palate is a medium smooth and creamy body, good carbonation and slight sticky mouth feel. Taste almost like a cup of ice cold java and with the alcohol at 8.3% you don’t notice it.The finish is the same as taste. Overall a very good tasty and enjoyable brew.
