1 pint can from middle of 2016. Pours a hazy brown shade with white froth. Aroma is of floral and grassy hops but not fruity in nature, and some malt - dough, and bread. There are very faint notes of coffee in the aroma - perhaps due to the age of the can - which are not too prominent. Taste is exact opposite of aroma, strongly dominated by the roasted Kenyan coffee, over biscuity and bready, flavours of the malt, but next to no hops flavours at all! Mouthfeel is a bit thin and watery, reflective of the rather weak underlying brown ale, which manages to stay afloat solely by virtual of the dominant coffee flavours.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a clear glass tulip. Batch#002 on bottom of can.

A: Amber-brown, clear, one-finger light beige head with average retention and only wispy lacing.

S: Strong black coffee aroma with mid-caramel toffee and herbal hopping.

T: Coffee dominates throughout mainly due to the indistinct, middle of the road nature of the underlying base beer, which has low character. A bit of astringent huskiness in the finish.

M: Light bodied and finishes dry with moderate to high carbonation.

O: Nothing to lose sleep over.

Pours a light nutty brown color with a beige head of 3 fingers. Teku glass.

Nose is quiet but what I can detect is slight nuttiness and pine hops. Some soap.

I'm not gonna lie, the citrus-pine hops and coffee play very nice together. However this is coming off more like an alternative to OB's Hotbox IPA than a brown ale. Faint nuttiness underneath the coffee and pine-citrus.

Feel is resiny and creamy. Moderate carb.

Overall, this is very much like a Coffee Brown IPA. In that regard it's freaking delicious. I feel I was mislead as I was expecting more chocolate and nuttiness. In light of this, it totally fails.

This beer wasn't very good and I'll tell you why. For one, it smells exclusively of fresh hops--as in the packets you buy from the home brewing store. The beer tastes like coffee that's been watered down. Unpleasant to drink. The people who reviewed this highly probably felt bad about spending money on something they disliked. It's not good and I'll never have one again.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 16 oz. can into a Cigar City Brewing goblet.

A: Pours a rich, dark brown but still manages to remain translucent. Relatively low visible carbonation and a two-finger off-white head with very good retention.

S: Fresh brewed coffee, vanilla, and toasted malts. Some milk chocolate, and bits of toffee and toasted nutty sweetness.

T: Medium roast coffee, lightly toasted malts, toffee and vanilla. Light cocoa, but less than I got on the nose. Mild green peppery flavor with some unroasted coffee beans as well. Some hop and roasted coffee bitterness near the end - this doesn’t end as sweet as it began. Lingering coffee bitterness with residual malt sweetness in the hang.

M: A medium body for a brown ale, but I think it seems a little lighter because it looks like a coffee porter (and the flavor profile is similar). Average carbonation sensation, and low alcohol presence.

O: Not bad, but just not my favorite. Nice coffee flavors and everything. But despite it being a bit of an illusion of suggestion, the body and non-coffee flavors seem a little thin and wanting in here. It won’t be a struggle to finish the four pack during outings wherein cans are appropriate, but I can’t see me buying more in the future. There's too many other canned coffee beers I would prefer. But I'm glad to have tried it.

The citrus up front is a nice surprise. Coffee mellows out the finish. Mouthful is a little thin. Still another great break by Evil Twin.

Pours a deep burgundy-brown with very little light peeking through. A khaki-colored head foams up to a finger in height, with okay retention. Lacing dots around the glass. Aroma has a hint of coffee, with notes of bread, and biscuit malts. Flavor profile is weak and dull, with notes of bread, and biscuit malts and a whiff of coffee. Some hop bitterness bites at the tail end of the flavor profile. Mouth feel is bubbly, with some carbonation harshness, all in a medium-thin thickness. Overall, for a brown ale with coffee added, there isn't much coffee here. It remains uninspired with no panache whatsoever. The only impression left comes from the bright 16oz can.

Served in a 12oz snifter.

Poured into a 22 oz pilsner glass, not sure when it was canned. Pours a light mahogany, with a massive 3 plus inch head that leaves plenty of streaks of lace behind.

Smell is some coffee beans, brown sugar, oaky vanilla, and toffee.

Taste follows expresso beans immediately tantalize your taste buds, brown sugar, oaked vanilla, biscuit, caramel, and warm toffee in the finish.

Mouthfeel is about medium, moderate amount of life, a little dry, and very drinkable, but it seems bigger than 6% ABV.

Overall this is a nice coffee beer, if I knew when it was canned I would know why the coffee is somewhat subdued.
