Dark, opaque brown body with a one-finger thick, creamy, light tan head. Aroma combines elements of cocoa and coffee grounds.with deeply roasted grains; mocha. The flavors reflect the smell with some additional hop and coffee bitterness; mild astringency. Medium body; slightly sweet finish yet with a dry edge.

This beer could easily pass for a coffee stout. It presents many of the same elements across the beer sensory spectrum. At first, I thought it was rather weak and muddled, but the more I sipped, the more its depth and complexity opened up. The grains and coffee reign supreme and the alcohol remains well-hidden in the background. Well-balanced and delicious.

It didn't lie, it was too much coffee... The styles did not work in my opinion.

This one didn't work for me. Too much coffee. Smells like coffee and the flavor is dominated by that. The back end with the black ale added a weirdness to it. Overall was not a fan.

Can’t tell that this is an ale – tastes like iced coffee. That’s OK in itself but why should I drink a beer I can’t taste when I can buy an iced coffee at Micky D. and add some vodka or absolute alcohol to get the same flavor?

this one is a mix of styles that never really gels or gets resolved, and the overall beer here is not all the way appealing. medium dark brown with a short tan head, the nose here is bitter leftover drip coffee and a funny saison yeast thats fruity esters are not congruent with the intese earthiness of the java. the flavor is mostly coffee up front, with a really thin wheat malt base that carries a little bitterness of its own. i just dont think the yeast here works with the coffee, not that it couldnt, but ive never had a coffee saison before that was too good. the body seems a little thin, and while its not funky, there is a real tickly spice to the yeast too, which again, is strikingly out of place with the bitterness of the coffee. i guess i like it because its different, but i would never buy this one.
