3.55/5  rDev -10.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a dark black with a half of a finger dense dark tan head that fades qucikly into a thin ring with very little lacing.

Aroma of dark roasted malt and dark coffee.

Taste starts with a roasty malt and some smoke, followed by sweet chocolate that over takes the hints of coffee.

Mouth Feel is medium body, very little carbonation with a smooth, creamy feel that leaves a sweet after taste. As the beer comes to room temperature it becomes sweeter.

Overall this is a good beer, I was expecting as much sweetness since it was labeled as a coffee stout. It is classified correctly as a milk sweet stout, I believe it would be a much better beer with a touch more coffee.

3.35/5  rDev -15.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 3.25

A- Dark mocha tan head on top of pitch black oblivion. The head doesn't stick around long and leaves no trace of any lacing.

S- a milky cream roast espresso with a sugary chocolate undertone. Vanilla hints and then more coffee.

T- coffee and cream up front with a syrupy cola like finish. The roast and the vanilla come through deep into the finish of the beer.

M- Feels like it tries to foam up to a medium bodied beer but it still is a bit thin. Really not a ton going on here.

O- The smell on this one was deep and complex. The flavor seemed to linger on for a really long time. I could drink this one again, but I wouldn't rank it as outstanding. Just a good solid above average beer.

look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a snifter

A- Pours pitch black with a very thin tan colored head that disappears almost immediately, leaving nothing behind

S- nice balance of day old coffee and chocolate, slightly smoky and roasty, rounded out with a lactose sweetness

T- chocolaty roasted malt up front with a hint of smoke, the coffee kicks in mid-palate with some herbal & earthy flavors and continues into the finish, eventually meshing with a milky lactose sweetness, more coffee on the linger

M- medium body and medium prickly carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a smooth, sweet finish

O- you don't see a lot of coffee flavored milk stouts, but I think that this one worked well. The sweetness of the milk stout mixes nicely wight he bitterness of the coffee

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12oz bottle, bottled 1/23/2014. Thanks Matt for extra'ing me this treat. Poured into a Surly goblet today, 2/23/2014.

App- Pours a viscous, thick dark black body, one finger mocha head that retains quite well, fading eventually into a thin collar. Not much leg or lacing though.

Smell- Needs to warm up a bit, but I get a strong freshly ground and french pressed coffee flavour. But not much else from the base even as it warms up more. Perhaps a hint of baker's chocolate.

Flavour- Better than it smells. Freshly roasted cold pressed coffee. Milk chocolate sweetness. Lactose. Black coffee bitterness on the backend. Nicely balanced coffee stout.

Mouthfeel- A bit thin, not too watery but is certainly a bit thinner bodied than I'd like. Good carbonation, coffee-forward aftertaste, no indication of ABV at all. Nicely drinkable, slick and sweet finish.

Overall- Very nice coffee milk stout that brings a nice sweetness on the backend. Nice VA local beer.
