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.

Serving type: can
