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.

A- pours a dark brown, witha billowing 2 finger head that's the color of french vanilla. Lingers awhile and remains thick.
S- Other than the espresso beans and coffee aroma, nothing much else comes to the forefront.
T- Nice, roasty flavor with the coffee/espresso flavor coming through in just the right amount. Awesome balance on the coffee. A bit of smokiness is present as well. Slight roasty bitterness on the back end. This is just a great tasting beer.
M- Really light for a stout, bordering on light to medium with a decent amount of carbonation.
O- I really enjoyed this beer. A pleasant surprise from Abita!

I've had a lot of stouts. Milk stouts, espresso stouts, coffee stouts, outmeal stouts, you name it. Most of them are awesome.

This one smells and tastes like cigarette butts. Thinking I was crazy, I let a friend (a fellow craft brew enthusiast) do a blind taste test. "WTF? Is this a Cigarette Stout?"

Stay away from this one.

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.

Abita Macchiato Espresso Stout has a thick, cream-colored head, a milky, brown appearance, and thin, splotchy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of coffee, cream, dark-roasted malts, and celery. Taste is of sweet cream, coffee, dark malts, moderate bitterness, and some char. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Abita Macchiato Espresso Stout finishes somewhat powdery and highly drinkable.
