A: Pours a black as night body, with a thin dark tan head that quickly fades to nothing.

S: To me this is one of the best, if not the best, smelling coffee beer I have ever had. The coffee is fresh and hits me right in the nose and has strong notes of chocolate following the coffee.

T: Smooth strong coffee, sweet chocolate and a slight amount of roasted malt. Just amazing

M: Extremely smooth for an Imperial Stout. There is a nice little tingle on the tip of the tongue and back of the throat. Just so damn drinkable.

A- dark brown, opaque with moderate tan head and decent lacing
S- Like opening a bag of fresh-ground french - roast coffee
T - Coffee and chocolate notes with a nice malty sweetness. Really good.
M - creamy smooth
O - A truly epic stout. I've gravitated away from stouts and into the realm of the hop-head in recent years, but this brings me back. A really nice version of an already great milk stout.

Poured on tap into a tall thin stout glass at the keep the glass party at Craft and Growler. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance: It's a stout. It's dark brown/black, with a small beige head. What a surprise.

Smell: Loads of creamy, roasty coffee, bitter dark chocolate, and sweet cream.

Taste: Did I mention there was a lot of coffee flavor in this? The sweet cream of the lactose base provides a nice backbone to the bitterness of the coffee. The base has coffee notes to begin with, lots of dark roasted malts in it, but the bourbon-aged coffee and chicory really takes it to a new level. It's really amazing. The bitter dark chocolate sticks around on the end.

Mouthfeel: Thick and creamy, with mid carb. A bit higher than I'd expect for a stout this thick and luscious.

Overall: I was pleasantly surprised. Mole Temptress was comparatively disappointing so I was glad to see this variant was so damn tasty. Flavor reminded me quite a bit of Brunch Money, which really speaks more to how good a coffee stout Brunch Money is, considering it isn't technically a stout. Keep up the good work, Lakewood. You'll get a national reputation someday. Maybe after you start bottling these variants.
