3.49/5  rDev -4.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a crystal clear dark amber in color (almost like a cup of black tea) with some ruby red highlights and moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a two finger tall dense and foamy light beige head that slowly reduces to a couple of medium sized medium thick patches containing large bubbles, some very thin film covering the remainder of the surface, and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Upfront there is a light to moderate aroma of slightly over roasted and burnt coffee with some lighter notes of oats, caramel, and nutty malts.

T: Upfront there is a very light flavor of caramel and nutty malts with just a touch of oats, that is followed by the coffee flavors - the coffee tastes over roasted and burnt giving it quite a acidic and bitter flavor. Moderate bitterness that lingers for quite a while.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Thin and watery.

O: Overall this beer is quite easy to drink but I was a little disappointed - I really love the flavor of coffee and especially coffee beers but it smells and tastes like some poor beans were used and the coffee pot was left to sit on the burner way too long. Lots of potential here but not one of my favorites. Due to the extremely light/thin mouthfeel and low ABV, this one is easy to drink but not sure I would want more than one.

Pours a light fizzy head that fades at a quicker pace with no lacing, hazy reddish toasty brown color.

Nose brings lots of coffee right off the bat, a light syrupy nutty coffee, lots of nutty aromas, like a bag of mixed nuts. Light caramel, toffee, oats, light toasty brown malts and peanutbutter.

Taste starts with coffee, acidic acrid coffee that seems like it was not cold extracted, light metallic twinge from the coffee too. Then very nutty again like mixed nuts are thrown into the boil. Brown sugar, caramel, toffee, light toasty brown malt and light sweetness. Even a bit of acidity. Slight creamy malt and oats and earthy nuts. The tannins and bitterness from the coffee come out with light bitter grassy hops. Finish is drier with lingering coffee tannins and lots of nutty flavors lingering.

Mouth is med bodied, dec carb.

Overall not too bad but not very good either, the coffee comes on too strong (and not coffee flavor wise) with lots of tannins, bitter acrid flavors. The malts aren't bad, and quite nutty.

3.18/5  rDev -13.4%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Pours a medium brown, with a creamy tan head of a finger or so. Left lots of lacing.

The aroma didn't have a lot of coffee, but what it did have was more of a spent coffee grounds type of aroma. Mostly, it was nutty malts, slight brown sugar sweetness and caramel.

The taste was better in the coffee department, though still not fantastic, but less stale. Caramel, nutty malt sweetness and a bit of a coffee bitter finish.

It's got a nice creamy smooth feel, light to medium body, clean finish.

As a whole, the beer is a bit disjointed. Brown ales I think are good bases for coffee additions, but this didn't get the point across particularly well. A shame, since I rather enjoyed their two-headed beast...

2.73/5  rDev -25.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

A: Pours a dark reddish nearly brown color. A large kaki head forms with good retention and lace.
S: Burnt, acrid coffee, light toasted bread, and a metallic twang.
T: Follows the nose. Mostly day old burnt and acrid coffee. Some baked bread, and finishes with a metallic twang.
M/D: The body is way to light and thin. Very watery. Nothing offensive, and not hard to drink if I wanted to.

Strike three. Sorry to say, I did not care for any of the three beers I have had from High and Mighty. I love that they are doing lower alcohol accessible styles. Though they just don't hit the mark for me.
