Coffee amber ale. Interesting.

Pours and amber/copper color, with an off white colored head. The aroma has a nice coffee note, caramel, nuttiness, sweet malts and a tinge of chocolate. The taste has alight coffee bitterness, caramel maltiness, slight citrus fruits, herbs, grass and cocoa.

Creamy feel on the palate, light to medium body, light carbonation. Ever so slight hop/coffee bitterness linger.

I love trying unusual coffee beers and this is a nice one one nothing phenomenal. Very glad to have tried it.

A: Opaque medium brown with a dusting of cream head. No lacing.

S: Sweet salted caramel, hint of fresh coffee

T: Fruity, fresh coffee with slight mocha, nutty finish

M: Medium bodied, silky texture, nice carbonation feel

O: Pleasant, bordering on rather delicious! The coffee flavour is bold and fresh, really nice. Fruity / nutty combo works well.

Pours a beautiful rich amber, with a darkness lurking beneath. Thick soft foam meets the liquid component. Rich expresso beans smell freshly ground. Mild lacing apparent after the first sip, which is refreshingly light. Lacing becomes more apparent and layered with subsequent sips. Taste of the alcohol and malts are in the backgrounds, with mild carbonation. A very enjoyable beer, well crafted. Although I don't think the sum is greater than the parts, and am unsure if there is an ideal situation for an expresso amber, I will be trying it again to find that situation.
