Poured into my Surly goblet....

A - Pours hazy dark amber with a thin white head.
S - Coffee! Really smells like coffee. I don't really smell anything else.
T - Coffee and vanilla flavors with some sweetness on the tongue. This beer probably tastes more like coffee than other beer I've tasted.
M - Medium mouth feel, highly carbonated, flavor sticks around awhile.
O - I like this beer. Different than others I've had where coffee was the leading flavor.

16oz can with no date. Dark brown color with a finger of head that had good retention before settling to a thin film. Moderate amount of sticky lacing is left down the glass. Strong aroma of coffee so I do not think this beer is too old. But I am not sure there is anything else underneath all the coffee. Strong coffee flavor as well but it also has a bit of acidity that makes me believe the coffee was not brewed as well as it could of been. A little bit of hint of malt with notes of nuts that dow not really compliment the coffee that well. Off putting mouthfeel to this beer. It just clings to the inside of the mouth. I do like the carbonation level however. Not the greatest coffee beer that is for sure.

Poured from 16 oz can into tulip.

A: Dark brown with one finger head. Short retention and little to no lacing.

S: Roasted coffee beans and lactose sugars.

T: Much the same as the nose. Subtle coffee flavors abound. There is a slight tartness to this suggesting milk sugars gone bad or a hint of infection.

M: Medium body and fairly lightly carbonated.

O: Nice coffee flavored brown ale. Planning on visiting the other can soon to see if the tartness prevails.

Dark amber brown, thin skin on the surface.
Earthy roasty coffee aroma, fairy smooth.
Tart fruit, roasty coffee taste. Light bodied, slight astringency.
Overall it's not bad, plenty of coffee aroma and taste, thin astringent body knocks points off though.

16oz can. Definitely infected, aroma was muddled, unpleasant sour taste with no disernable coffee, very thin mouthfeel. Hopefully they identify and fix the issue with the canned version as I haven't heard of any problems with the bombers or draft.

poured 22oz bottle into snifter.

A - Mahogany brown with lighter brow highlights and a 2 finger sandy head. Excellent retention a gobs of lacing coat my glass.

S - Reminds me of a brown ale, but also has some resemblance to a porter. Pick up the toasted and nutty notes along with mellow coffee. I detect a bit of cola, which is what I find in porters.

T - Rich and malty with some lighter coffee that has some sweetened sugar and cream. Not quite as good as the nose would have suggested. Some nuttiness, tobacco, and a bit of cola.

M - Medium body, but pretty smooth and well executed carbonation.

O - It makes sense that this is their best beer and one that they will continue to brew. It sort of reminds me of Devil Over A Barrel, but without any bourbon notes.

Pint-sized can:

Pours dark brown with a tan, foamy head. Spotted lacing sticks.

The smell is of burnt coffee, slight metallic notes, with an earthy tone.

The taste of coffee not as burnt as in the nose. A nutty brown ale blends with the roasted coffee. Sweet-ish with roast and lactose balance in the finish.

Hits medium-bodied. Enough to the feel to give it the higher of the scores I had in mind, especially as it progresses.

A solid nut brown ale with coffee (with milk). The coffee is more old-school American coffee than espresso. It's not rich, but certainly there. An interesting brew.
