The best milk stout I have ever tasted after Ma Kesson's Triple Stout from England was retired. Very smooth and no bitter aftertaste. The coffee from Guatemala is an excellent choice to flavor this coffee stout along with the cocoa flavor. Not too high of an alcohol content either...just right. Excellent!

A: Pours viscous with a creamy brown head. There isn't much head there, and the retention seems low. May just be too cold.
S: Nothing amazing. Hints of cocoa and coffee. Maybe a touch of roasted barley.
T: WOW! Smooth coffee flavor with loads of roasted cacao and molasses. Reminds me of a light version of Breakfast Stout.
M: Goes down smooth. Not to dry. It is on the sweet side of the chart, but not too sweet that it is cloying. Carbonation is low, which I think fits the style perfectly.
D: This tastes great and is so smooth. I could easily drink a few pints without even feeling full.

I think this is a great beer and I was very surprised at the flavor. I have heard horror stories about Williamsburg Ale Works beers, but every one I have tried so far has been fantastic. I am really falling in love with this small brewery. I think their current beers could easily take on the top breweries in the US.

A: Pretty black for a low abv stout. A nice tan head poofs up, followed by decent lacing.

S: This is really heavy on the coffee, with burnt malts coming through at the end. The coffee is very appealing.

T: A blast of coffee on the front end. It quickly mellows, but is still prevelant. It blends with the burnt malt as it mellows. I'm getting milk with the malt and coffee. Semi-bitter chocolate is there, but not really a key player, since it plays second fiddle to the coffee.

M: Creamy, well carbonated, smooth! Well done and certainly a milk stout's body.

O: This is no doubt the best low abv-less than 7% abv- coffee stout I've had to date. It tastes like a mini breakfast stout with a milkier body. Outstanding.

Selected this brew as a trial from a local craft beer provider. First look the beer is beautifully dark with a chocolate cream colored head on pour.

Aroma is very nice, sweet with a hint of coffee coming in shortly after, with a little hop peeping through coming from the fuggles.

Taste starts out of that of a nice milk stout but fairly quickly transfers into light premium coffee notes and finishing with slight bitterness from the hops, not over the top though.

Overall a very drinkable evening beer that can be enjoyed well into the spring, especially for all of you fellow devout stout fans.
