Had on tap at cafe amsterdam.
Pours a cloudy brown with good white colored head. Leaves decent lace. Smell is immeadiately coffee cream with some dark malt. Taste follows coffee up front, coffee with cream not black coffee. Roasty toasty malt presence through the middle, and a slight (very) hop finish. Mouthfeel is pretty good but on the thin side. Drinkability is just like a session ale, the 6.7 abv is nowhere to be found. I would have guessed about 5 or 6 at the most. Defenitely a good beer, and one I think alaskan should put in the bottle or bomber. better than alot of their flagships. great beer.

Bought growler from growler bar at La Bodega in Anchorage. Poured into a pint glass.
A - Very bright copper color. Translucent. Moderate white head with a little bit of lacing.
S- Don't get much of the coffee or malt smell. Smells like a standard ale. Doesn't smell bad, but nothing spectacular or original.
T- Much more malty than the nose. Very sweet. Not as much coffee as I hoped, especially as the name suggested.
M- Sticky yet smooth. Well balanced in the ABV. Could knock a few back.
O- Just okay. I'll enjoy finishing it, but I'll probably never get another growler of it again.

served on draft at the salmon bake in Denali...
Pours dark with a creamy white head that hung around. Smell was absolutely exceptional. Like a tasty creamy double shot espresso w. vanilla cream - hints of malt...taste backs this up, with the hops coming through at the very end in a somewhat off balanced way.
Mouthfeel was...lacking for me. it had a bit of a thin, syrupy feel that didnt resonate- like perhaps it should have been served on nitro. Overall an excellent coffee beer.

Sample in the Alaskan tap room. This beer is a mostly clear brownish-amber color with a medium beige head that has decent retention. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt and nuts. Medium, smooth body with roasted coffee, malt and caramel flavors with some hops in the background. The finish is mild coffee with a lingering roastiness. Pretty good overall.
