Picked this one up today at my local BevMo. I'd heard about this one before but always seemes to miss it before today. Almost went with somemore Brown Shugga', but thought i'd give this one a go instead.
Pours with seemingly little head directly from the bottle, though it may still be a little cold. The nose is subtle - cream, slight coffee and chocolate, which isn't surprising given this is a cappucino stout. Actually more chocolate/cocoa as it's warming. Colour's more of a porter colour - gorgeous dark ruby, not black.
First taste does away with any pretense of this seeming creamy. It's not rough, but instead has much more body than the nose had suggested. Big roasted characteristic at firstand a slight lactic milkyness, then that coffee/cappuccino characteristic comes in through the middle and carries on for a long time. Though not as big as some of the coffee stouts out there (Alesmith's Speedway, etc...), this is still great for a "normal" coffee stout.
