Style here is listed as Amber/red. This is a brown at the lightest (and brown by name), but if it was called porter or even stout I'd go with it.

On the beer, solid brown plus coffee. Nothing to race out for, but it works

Smells and tastes just like iced coffee. Delicious.

If you like coffee you'll like this beer. I tried both the Kona and the cask Kona. The regular was a little bit too carbonation for my taste, so I enjoyed the cask Kona more. It's a light (not heavy) beer that I liked better than Wolaver's Alta Gracia Coffee Porter, which while a porter, is similar in flavor.
