On tap at the brewery on Jan. 31, 2014.

This beer's appearance is basic, but beautiful. A pitchblack liquid, opaque and coffee-like as the name suggests. Head is two-fingers thick and forms a semi-dome above the liquid. It's caramel in color and persistent. After it dissipates, it settles into a lacy layer above the liquid and around the rim of the glass.

The nose is again, simple and straightforward: coffee, lactose, coffee with cream (hence the name). It's slightly sweet, but not much.

From the first sip, coffee bursts onto my palate, followed by some sweet cream, vanilla and toffee sweetness like you get from one of those cream products and hints of milk chocolate. There's really a lot going on.

As for the drinkability, this beer starts off sweet and creamy, then becomes stiff and coffee-like, then becomes dry and chocolatey, and the coffee and chocolate linger long after. It's damn easy to drink despite the nearly %8 ABV.

Overall, a spectacular beer and one I'll be sad to see go.
