3.04/5  rDev -23.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Batch: 15JAN13

Black with a very fine point rim of light tan foam, black mirror atop otherwise. Smells of coffee, cocoa, more coffee and pretty much just cold coffee. Flavor is coffee, soil, some bitterness, a little bit of bread, some bits of unsweetened chocolate. Medium bodied with hi carb and an off dry finish; a little less body and a little much carb for the style. Overall decent, quite a bit of coffee which makes it one dimensional.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured into a pint.

A - Classic black color with brownish bubbly head. Lots of lacing left on glass.

S - Not overly sweet or chocolatey. Fairly mild smell.

T - Nice milk stout flavors, with hints of chocolate, coffee, mild roasted chestnuts. Just enough bitterness to balance the sweet. Well done.

M - Maybe just a tad thin, but not overly so.

O - This is a very satisying milk stout that I'll have again. Another solid offerring from Aleworks.

12 oz bottle into a nonic pint glass.

A: Pours a very dark brown color with nice opacity. The head is a one finger mocha shade. I had to pour really aggressively in order to get just one finger; and even worse is the fact that it retains itself poorly.

S: The coffee here is more of a subtle add-on than the main focus - in other words, this isn't Wake-n-Bake, nor does it try to be. It's actually the qualities of cream and milk chocolate that are strongest; underneath that is roasted barley and the aforementioned coffee presence. Really a pleasant aroma in general.

T: The first wave of flavor that's unleashed on the tongue is a lot of milky cream and chocolate. Roasted coffee will gradually build on the midtaste and climax on the finish. The coffee comes across a little stale, and that's my biggest beef here by far. Luckily, it's not a huge problem - since this isn't a coffee-first, everything-else-second kind of stout, the subtle note can get away with being a mild deterrent behind a rock-solid cream stout.

M: I'd like just a touch less fizz to allow the creaminess of the texture to shine through better. Once allowed to fade, the softness of the texture does come through decently; but the finish isn't dry enough to allow the more bitter/roasted qualities to balance the sweetness some. The syrupy linger makes it a bit hard to drink.

O: Pretty solid. Once I realized this wasn't designed to be a coffee-bomb FBS killer, I could appreciate its subtleties a lot more thoroughly. Hardly my favorite coffee beer, but good enough where I'd considering getting a 6 pack of in the future.

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!

Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a Belgian tulip glass.

A: Pours a dark black hue with a thin, 2-finger, tan head that quickly dissipates into a wispy lace, leaving a decent trail down the glass.

S: Good malt aroma with a solid coffee and chocolate background.

T: Smooth blended flavors of chocolate, coffee, and toasted malts.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Very good coffee stout – not overpowering with the coffee, but rather blended in nicely.

I had been looking to buy some new stouts to try and a friend of mine told be to pick this one up, I wasn't terribly impressed. A very average to good stout. If your looking for something a little different don't look here. A little flat when it came to taste and feel, they could do better by adding something to give it more of a kick. Thin with almost no head, and I couldn't really taste any of the coffee notes, it was more sour than sweet. AVERAGE is the key word.
