Bottle from 10.08.14, enjoyed from a snifter.

Mr. Hyde pours entirely black with a head that looks like it's made out of white sand. Nice, pungent aroma of baker's chocolate, roasted - almost smokey - malts, roasted coffee beans, and dark red fruits. Flavors are a tasty blend of rich cocoa and coffee that's creamy but a bit bitter. Pretty sweet on the front end, pretty dry, roasty, and bitter on the back end. You definitely want to let this beer come up close to room temperature. Mouthfeel is creamy, dry, and satisfying.

One of Greenbush's better beers for sure. Not a coffee bomb, and not a chocolate bomb, but a beer that nicely blend both flavors and aromas.

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.

Wasn't going to review this beer, but after reading what others have written, I wanted to speak my piece.

Appearance: Pours a pitch black with a wonderfully fluffy mocha colored head that sticks around the edge of the glass wonderfully. The lacing is fantastic.

Smell: Big nose of coffee with some sweet lactose notes. Some real nice roasted notes coming through.

Taste: Has some really nice coffee notes. A bit one dimensional with the coffee and roasted barley notes, bu that's exactly what it is, so I won't knock it.

Mouth: Really nice mouthfeel. I feel like I've drank some really nice coffee. A bit dry, but crisp. Some good creamy texture initially.

Drink and overall: I'm a big fan of this beer, and that is why I had to review it. I think it's a really nice coffee stout, and Greenbush deserves a pat on the back for this guy.

Had on-tap at BoatWorks in St. Clair Shores, Michigan for $5.25 a pint.

Appearance: One of the most gorgeous looking beers I have ever seen... seriously. Pitch black with two fingers of a tan head that lasts forever. The lacing goes sip-by-sip from the top to the bottom of the glass.

Smell: A little more bitter smelling than I'm accustomed to from a Milk stout. Dark chocolate and coffee are the dominant aromas, for sure. I don't pull much of anything else out. I suppose roasted malts as well, and some slight sweetness, but it doesn't smell like Milk stouts I've had in the past (not at all a bad thing).

Taste/feel: Like the smell, slightly bitter (especially on the front), with a smooth semi-sweetness on the finish. Not what I expected, but still very good. The ABV doesn't come through at all in any way, and this is just a very nice beer by Greenbush... one of their best. While I didn't think it was much of a Milk stout at first, the finish let me know why. Roasty bitterness and a good wallop of chocolate on the start, with a silky, semi-sweet finish. Never too bitter, never cloying, just a very well crafted Milk stout.

12 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 12/1/2014. Pours pitch black color with a 2 finger dense and rocky tan head with incredible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, light smoke/char, light pine, herbal/roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt, coffee, and moderate herbal hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, light smoke/char, light pine, and herbal/roasted earthiness. Good amount of roast/char and herbal hop bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, light smoke/char, and herbal/roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt, coffee, and moderate herbal hop flavors; with a nice roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent imperial coffee stout. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt, coffee, and moderate earthy hop flavors; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
