Well, Raul is digging into another Alpine and for this one Raul is getting all Al Green on it with a Koffee Sutra

Good and all that, a bit light, but it's a Brown Ale. And for Raul, he believes that coffee pairs better with stouts and porters - but this sucker ain't bad. Think of the Halle Berrie of Brown Ales.

Yep!

On tap @ the source.

A: Pours a clear brown with a 1/4-inch thick white head which leaves spotty lace.

N: Roasted coffee (duh).

T: Like an iced coffee.

M: Medium body and semi-moderate carbonation. A tad thin. Roasted coffee finish.

O: Straight forward and easy drinking.

Ratings are correct below, but I changed some marks above to make the final rating as close as possible with Beer Advocate's "revamped" system. The 4.06 overall rating is accurate.

Type: Draft
Glass: 16-oz. pint glass
From: Alpine Beer Company in Alpine, Calif.
Price: $4.50

Misc.: N/A

Poured a dark mahogany, reddish, brown color with 1-to-2 fingers of khaki tan head when I got it that thinned rather quickly. Good semi-layered, foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Poor retention. (Sight - 3.75)

Smelled dark roasty coffee, bitter dark chocolate, crayon, roasty nuts and dark toffee. (Smell - 4.38)

Tasted just like the smell, getting rich coffee malts, bitter coffee beans, dark chocolate, roasty wood, some crayon, dark toffee and caramel, and dark fudge. (Taste - 4.00)

Full-to-medium body. Oily texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Long, bitter finish. (Feel - 4.00)

This was a really good coffee beer. I feel like I underrated it a tad, especially since I am a sucker for coffee ales. (Overall - 4.00)
