I'm trying this at the brewery. It poured a clear mahogany with ercu head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent had hints of coffee. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink but finished a bit bitter and acidic. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a solid beer.

Dark Amber/opaque brown draft 16oz pour with rich tan head; taste of roasted nut and lite coffee aftertaste; medium lite mouthfeel; slightly metallic finish and linger; overall, liked the nose and start, but not crazy about the finish.

On tap at Aardwolf Brewing Company in Jacksonville, FL.

Pours a golden dark brown, with a half inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells really richly of toasted bread, roasted malt, toffee, roasted coffee, and chocolate.

I'm really starting to dig coffee-enchanced brown ales. The roasted, bitter coffee flavor plays really well off of the caramel, toffee, and toasted bread aspect of the brown ale. There's a little bit of hop flavor resembling tea.

This is medium bodied, with a rich and crisp mouthfeel, and a higher level of carbonation.

A really nice beer and a good introduction to this brewery.
