Growler filled at Hudson Valley Bev. in Mahopac, NY

Pours near black, under a quickly fading mocha head. Leaves a quality tiny bubble film and sheets and strands of fine lacing.

Mild nose of milk chocolate and dulled coffee notes.

Super smooth and soft on the tongue. More chocolate, faint coffee on the palate and perhaps a hint of cherry shining through Moderate sweetness. Nicely done

Tasty and easy drinking, I'd like to give this a try with some chocolate dessert...one of the best brews I've had from Abita

Abita Select coffee milk stout served at the Ponce de Leon Beer Fest.

Dark clear brown body with a small head that soon reduces to a ring.

Body is a too light and, perhaps, over-carbonated.

Sweet milt stout character gets dominated by the strong black coffee aroma and flavor.

O: for coffee lovers only. This coffee stout suffered by comparison in pretty much every way to a Founders Breakfast Stout consumed right afterwards.

Had on-tap at Avenue Pub New Orleans. Served in a cask glass.

A- Pours a mostly opaque black color with a 1/2 inch tan head that retains a bit before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Resilient lacing hangs on the glass a good while.

S- Very good espresso aroma with some chocolate and vanilla interspersed.

T- Flavor follows the nose pretty closely but there's more nuttiness and vanilla than in the smell. Very easy to drink though and the coffee holds steady with the dark roast makes for a nice counterbalance to the chocolatey sweetness.

M- Not very viscous for a stout. Medium carbonation and a fullish body.

O- Though the mouthfeel wasn't exactly what I was looking for, this hit all the right marks otherwise. I've been highly anticipating this for months ever since I heard they were coming out with it and I'm pleased with the result. The coffee flavor is fresh, vibrant and of good quality.
