A: Pours out more like an IPA than a brown ale. Maybe an IPA with dark malts. You can see through it. Half finger slightly off white head. Some lacing. It really looks like dirty thin water.

S: Some mild hints of coffee. Ground coffee notes, not the roasted variety. Some caramel malts are more present than the coffee though.

T: Up front you get that ground coffee flavor. Mild, not astringent or biting. It's pleasant. Mild malt bill. Caramel notes. Some what dry finish.

M: Light to medium bodied.

A - Copper, mostly clear. White head has some retention and lacing.

S/T - Considering this is branded as a coffee-brown ale, there's very little coffee in this one. Bready caramel malts and some pine hops in the finish. Coffee is very light in both flavor and aroma.

M - Light body, high level of spritzy carbonation. Not very smooth without the rich feel typical of coffee and brown ales.

O - I think the mark was missed on this one. Lacking in feel and coffee throughout. Little depth of flavor.
