Very Good
Notes: To celebrate collaboration and support other Queens businesses, we’ve partnered with Native Coffee Roasters to blend a custom cold brew coffee for this medium-bodied coffee pale ale. Delicious butterscotch and toffee aromas with flavors of tiramisu, orange and coffee.

Review from notes, Sample at The Microbrew Invitational 6/3/2017
Hazy golden color. Peppery roasty coffee. not much of a stout or pale ale. Did not enjoy.

On tap at Crescent and Vine in Astoria. I was excited to finally try something from this picobrewery, but I didn't want to order a second glass. Like Stone's somewhat similar Golden Stout, the coffee and pale malts combined for a roasted peanut butter character. This beer, however, is too bitter and unbalanced (something I rarely complain about) with a wholly unpleasant sharp finish. No thanks.

A "stout" that comes in a hazy golden color.

The beer interestingly enough tastes of bright pepper that I get in many "spicy" stouts. It is not spicy in any sense, but it's a "pepper" flavor. As it warms up, it tastes more of a peppery coffee than just pepper. A decent amount of malt and touch of sweetness to back up the beer.

Slightly single note brew because that pepper flavor is slightly distracting.
