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

16oz can shared with my girlfriend. Poured into my Night Shift tulip.

Pours the deepest of browns--only a hair away from black--with an imposing two-and-a-half finger khaki head. Head slowly dissipates to approximately a quarter-finger in size but never quite gives up the ghost, remaining for almost all of the duration of consumption. Strongly retentive lacing.

In the nose, notes of vanilla, medium roast, milk sugar, molasses, and bittersweet chocolate. Straightforward but appealing.

In the mouth, roasty coffee and rich chocolate notes on the front of the palate give way to sweet vanilla and milk sugar notes mid-palate. Finishes earthy and slightly dry, with notes of bitter coffee and dark chocolate.

Mouthfeel is a bit of a disappointment, to be honest...smooth and fairly creamy, but also somewhat overly carbonated and a bit thin for the style, which detracts from the overall silkiness of the beer.

On the whole, very solid. Not amazing, not mindblowing, but very, very solid. As a native of Rhode Island, 'Gansett did both themselves and Autocrat proud with this one, and I hope it comes around again.

3.59/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours dark brown bear black before held to direct light. Head is a darker tan/khaki and super creamy. Ok head retention leaves a small super creamy and dense cap. Moderate carbonation on the pour.

Smell: Coffee syrup up front. Slightly sweet with the syrupy nature of Autocrat. Solid punch of roasted malt with a big chunk of cocoa and bitter dark chocolate. A touch burnt on the back of everything with some solid caramelized malt sweetness. Coffee is a nice compliment, offering some coffee bean in addition to the syrupy concentrated coffee. A touch of Narragansett yeast rounds the whole thing out. A touch of citrus and herbal notes from the hops. A bit of lactose, but it's not cloyingly sweet. Basically smells like mixing a spoon or two of Aurocrat in to a standard milk stout.

Taste: Follows the nose spot on. A touch of burnt and charred malt coupled with a solid roasted malt compliment. A touch of herbal and citrus from the hops, but it's mainly a backing component. Malts are nicely sweet with a nice push of caramelized malts. Yeast adds the associated lager notes, with some grassy elements thrown in for good measure. Coffee has a very faint hint of real beans under the straight coffee syrup. A balance of lactose sweetness with the condensed syrupy nature of Autocrat. Cocoa in abundance with some bitter baker's chocolate. Surprisingly balanced.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Expected it to be a bit smoother, but really drinks like it was hit with lager yeast (which I'm assuming it was). Moderate carbonation. Pretty much inline with the style.

Overall: Coffee milk sucks. This does not.

A deft use of an otherwise awful product. Balances the syrupy nature of Autocrat with a decent base stout. Nothing to write home about, but it's all well-done and that's more than enough.
