on draft at the Flying Saucer in Memphis

damn this beer smells good - a ton of coffee aroma - and good flavor in the taste as well - not too roasty or dry.

A perfect blend of creamy milky chocolatey coffee goodness! Definitely should get this beer if you see it somewhere!

This is hands down the best stout I've ever had. This beer has so much coffee aroma & flavor you'll think it's your morning coffee! A remarkably clean and bright finish with only a lingering sweetness.

Little body; this puppy's as thin as Christian Bale in The Machinist! No trace of hops and only a hint of toasted malt. The coffee flavor is pleasant
and may add a false sense of body. If you hear "stout"and think Guiness, well, ah, not so much; this is a milk stout, though, so you shouldn't expect it to resemble "Arthur's". If it weren't so thin, even for a milk stout, this could be a very nice product. As it is, it's pretty meh.

T: Nice creamy, roasty chocolate notes with coffee in the finish

F: Light body with moderate carbonation

O: This is one of my all time favorite milk stouts. I'd love to try it again. Please expand to NY.

Have had this beer in a pint glass at Wiseacre, in a pint glass at a local restaurant, as multiple flight glasses from a local bottle shop, and from a growler at the same shop. The pint glasses and flights were both amazing with a great coffee taste, stout consistency, and no bitter coffee flavor. However, we opened the growler only a few hours later and it tasted watered down a bit and took away the great tastes I had experienced. I witnessed the pour so I don't think anything was done during the bottling process to water it down.

L - Pours a dark brown body with a light tan two finger head. Okay retention and lacing.

S - The smell is all about coffee bean mixed with milk chocolate. Great to get a whiff of.

T - About the same as the nose here. May'be some roasty characteristics thrown in.

F - Thin body, watery and low carbonation. Given the style I wasn't expecting an RIS, but it's not exactly shining.

O - Huge coffee bean notes coming from this. This would hit the spot any morning for me.

Smooth and easy. Tempted to gulp, rather than just slow drink.

Pours dark with a tan head. Big coffee in the aroma. Taste is ok with big coffee taste with not much body or other flavors to counter. Taste is not balanced

Watery, thin. Feels like malt extract homebrew in the mouth. To some extent tastes like one as well. Underwhelming. A milquetoast milk stout. There is nothing objectionable, but nothing stands out other than some coffee flavor on the front end. No body. So thin I could not tell I was drinking a stout when my eyes were closed.

A somewhat one dimensional beer, but the one dimension is coffee and that is alright with me. A little sweet, a lot of coffee. Slightly thin in the body. If I made this I probably would add more lactose. Or not. Try one or three, tell me what you think.

Picked up a growler from a local bottle shop here and popped it open a few minutes ago. Fresh off the tap...

Nice coffee aromas and flavors but the beer is a little bit thin for me... It has everything but the smooth creaminess that I was looking for. One of the things that I like about this offering is that the coffee doesn't come off as bitter but rather dark and strong. I really just wish it was a little creamier... still a nice offering...

Glad to see a local brewery coming out with a wide variety of beers.... Good job Wiseacre!
