Pours like a very dark coffee stout. Damn near opaque, chocolate brown head.
Smells of giant coffee nodes. Like, I'm not talking coffee-like. I mean it smells like you're holding a nice glass of some high-acid coffee right up to your face--there's lots of sweet, bitter, sour, and stingy complexities that I have never before found in a coffee stout, only in an actual glass of actual coffee.
Tastes basically the same, only with more sweet stout nodes coming in. Sweet stout up front moving into excellent and complex coffee, ending on dry hops. Excellent.
This is a goddamn gem. It's Where It's At. That is, this beer is an exclamation that's also the chorus of an unorthodox pop song that's as hummable and familiar as it unique and life-affirming. Find it, buy it, drink it.

I loved this collaboration. The mouthfeel was thinner than I would have thought, however as it warmed up I was getting more and more presence.
The smell was great. Some coffee and chocolate, a touch of booze, hops.
The taste was wonderful. Definitely got lots of coffee but the coffee worked perfectly in this brew. Sometimes with milk stouts the addition of coffee gives me a sickly sweet latte feel. The balance of this one, however, was really nice and inviting. I would compare this to Big Hugs (Half Acre), but I enjoyed this more.
I was actually given a taste of the bourbon barrel aged version of this and liked the regular more. Good stuff guys.

Had on tap at Bad Apple. Served in a pint glass.
A: Pours a dark black color with a tan head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to a thin cap that leaves some sticky lace down the glass.
S: Notes of chocolate and light espresso. The nose is pretty roasty well. Dried cocoa.
T: The taste has an even more roasted malt presence. Dark chocolate with a light milk chocolate. Coffee grounds with some dark fruit notes, anise and light lactose sugar.
M: Medium to heavy bodied, silky and smooth. Medium carbonation level with dry roast finish.
O: Definitely one of the better milk stouts I've ever had. Super roasty and dry with complex flavors. Hopefully I'll come across this again in the near future.
