This beer poured out as a deep black color with a quick fading brown head on top. The retention was minimal and there wasn't much lacing either. The smell of the beer gives off a nice coffee aroma with a subtle sweetness on the nose as well. The taste is bold upfront with a coffee kick that settles into the milky sweetness of the beer. There is a subtle bitter chocolate flavor in there too. The mouthfeel wasn't heavy at all, it was actually lighter than expected. The carbonation was decent and the beer maintains a good drinkablity. Overall this was a pretty good stout, I would drink this one again.

Bottle from the brewery, 12oz into a tulip. Thanks CWBlues!

Deep brown, almost black with a mocha head. Creamy retention and a sheets of lacing. Nose has a large dose of coffee beans, chocolate tones, subtle green/herbal qualities. A bit creamy, some sweet malt . Taste is almost completely coffee, roasty and bitter finish. Very mild sweetness on the palate, this one finishes dry and the coffee lingers for quite some time. Alcohol is hidden, medium-full body. A good beer, coffee dominates but some complexity otherwise could've added - a bit one-dimensional and I love coffee beers.

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.

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.

On tap at O'Rourkes in South Bend, IN at the Greenbush tap takeover on 8/15/12. Served in a GB snifter.

Pour: Pitch black with a finger and a half tan head. Leaves a light lacing.

Smell: A light chocolate with an intense coffee aspect. A lot of dark fruit in the back, with some raisons and figs.

Taste: Chewey figs and raisons up front to the max. Some roasted aspects, and a light chocolate as well. Too much dark fruit as it warms. Way more than a sweet stout should typically showcase.

Mouthfeel: A sipper, but creamy and good. Honestly, the taste makes this hard to drink.

Overall: Pretty forgettable in my opinion. Not sure if this was brewed again since the collab, or if this keg has been aging, but either way, I did not enjoy it.
