Red appearance, solid 3/4" off white head on it, looks good. Massive coffee aroma, and Bruery gets very little respect for their amazing coffee beers. Exquisite.

Taste, this really makes a red ale interesting. The coffee melds well with the normally "I'm not all that into red malts" kind of vibe, nothing super earthy or peat like here. Can't pick up on hops. This one just drives coffee into you with a non stout delivery malt base which is nice for warmer weather. I would totally bang this again if they bottled it.

App- This really looked like a red creme soda to me. A bit of a frothy 1/2" to 3/4" head. A good ring of bubbles. Kinda pancake like. A nice dense center.

Smell- A bit of a lighter coffee note. More aromatic that before with subtle malts and a gentle bitter note. A bit sweet.

Taste- I am not sure as to why on this one, but it had what I would call a whip creme flavor to it. A bit light, a bit airy. The red is there but hidden nicely. A bit more creamy coffee.

Mouth- A bit creamier than the 1st one and bit more body behind it as well. A solid medium carbontion.

Drink- A tasty variant. Probably going in order of how I liked them, this was a step up from the 1st coffee variant, but not as good as the last.
