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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: Nice brown color, short white head, no lacing

Smell: Coffee, oatmeal, and malts

Taste: Cold brewed medium roast coffee up front, with some oatmeal and bready malts

Mouthfeel: Medium body, good carbonation

Overall: Pretty good, but not outstanding. A pretty solid coffee beer. Definitely a coffee beer but the coffee isn't overwhelming.
