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. (156 characters)

A perfect blend of creamy milky chocolatey coffee goodness! Definitely should get this beer if you see it somewhere! (116 characters)

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. (201 characters)

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. (435 characters)

12 ounce can poured into a snifter.

Frothy khaki head forms a couple fingers thick, but dissipates fairly quickly. Pitch-black body beneath. No complaints from me on this account. 4.5

Huge espresso aroma on the nose. Potent, roasted, a tad sweet with caramel and cream and a bit of spiciness. 4

The coffee flavor on the tongue is a bit stale, like something a few days old. It's followed by cream and sweetness that's almost sugar-like. It starts tasting pretty true to a coffee with milk and a couple of sugars. After a few more drinks, it occurs to me the coffee flavor is also a tad thin and/or watered down. Not nearly as robust in flavor as I want my coffee or my beer with coffee. 3.25

It's light and easy-drinking, so in that regard, it's got something going on. However, the light body here does border on watery as I mentioned, something that can't quite win me over. The carbonation is low to medium and that really aids the drinkability and the malt-feel has its moments. 3.5

I think freshness may be a big factor with this brew, because the coffee flavor here just feels watered-down and stale. I'd love to try fresh at the source because I imagine this would be tasty in that form and really allow for multiple pours. (1,236 characters)

Big coffee aroma in the nose. I'm expected a thick beer, but this is smooth and drinks surprisingly easy. It's not light bodied, but well balanced and full or java roast and earthy cocoa. The milk sweetness just comes through at the very end to meet the bitterness. Very cool beer. (281 characters)

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. (540 characters)
