First had: on tap at Dunedin's brewpub

This was probably my favorite brew from Dunedin. Very well-done, and I'm typically pretty picky about my coffee beers. And my brown ales for that matter. Reading other reviews, I have to believe that they have improved on the recipe lately.

Poured a cloudy mahogany color, with a small, foamy, beige head; moderate retention and lacing. Nice aroma of smooth coffee and sweet malts, a bit of cocoa. The coffee was not at all overblown in the taste, which is good in my book, very smooth and melded with flavors of sweet cream, vanilla, hazelnut, and a touch of dried fruits and cocoa powder. Well done. Body was medium, mouthfeel was smooth and creamy for a brown ale. Very good overall, and definitely something I'd revisit.

On-tap at Dunedin Brewery. Served on a Pint glass.

A: almost black in color with a one finger tanned head that remained there for a while. Some lacing present.

S: very strong coffee aroma, this beer definitely does a good job in honoring its name. Milk chocolate also present in the smell, which is very nice and a good change of pace since most beers in this (or similar) style usually tend to have a dark chocolate aroma.

T: is this a beer or coffee? More like the latter, which can be a good thing or bad thing depending on what you're looking for exactly. Expect a very heavy and concentrated coffee flavor at the beginning, followed by sweet milk chocolate tones in the middle and a bitter coffee finish and aftertaste.

M: medium body with low to medium carbonation. A bit on the smooth side.

O: I enjoyed this beer for what it was, but I can see some people having issues with the strong coffee presence throughout it. In my opinion, a quality product by the folks at Dunedin Brewery.

Draft at Dunedin.

Poured clear brown color with an average fizy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate dark chocolate and roasted coffee aroma. Medium to full body and a smooth texture. Medium to heavy roasted bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration.

This is the best of the sampled brews.
