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.

Thanks to Rado for sharing this one at Oneinchaway's tasting.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa powder, coffee bean, and brewed coffee with cream aromas. Taste is much the same with chocolate syrup, coffee bean, and brewed coffee with cream flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with fantastic coffee and cream qualities that are slightly better in the smell to me.

Serving type: bottle.

-deep dark black espresso color
-roasted coffee with a hint of bitter
-great flavor long lasting sweet robust coffee smokiness
-not as thick as i was hoping for but still a great body for a stout
-overall a very impressive stout taking doing great in capturing the flavor notes it was trying to obtain.
