This one has been on my wants list forever big thanks to phisigben for the opportunity.
Pours a solid black with a creamy white head that slowly recedes to a cap and leaves spotty lace on the way down. Smells of coffee, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, and a hint of lactose. Taste is mildly roasty with a coffee edge. Chocolate caramel vanilla a hint of smoke all play supporting roles. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet sugary mouthfeel. Nice easy drinking stout that I'm glad I got to try. Maybe not work the three years I waited for it, but good just the same.

big thanks to funhog for this one.

poured cold and aggressively from the bottle an opaque cola black to a dogfish head signature glass with a finger and a half, big bubbled, foamy, tan, relatively long lasting head

aroma of a mild, creamy espresso with a bit of cocoa in the wayback.

very subtle, sweet creamy espresso forward. hints of smoke, cocoa and vanilla(?)

medium to light bodied, creamy smooth, sweet, no bitter, medium carbonation. very nice.

overall - great coffee beer, subtle. less is more.

For whatever reason, this one wasn't on my radar even though it is a local beer. I had one the other night and like it enough to get some more soon although it wasn't my favorite coffee stout because I generally like my coffee stouts a little stronger.

The two things that I liked best about this beer were the smell and the taste. Although it had a nice strong coffee taste/smell, there was a little bit of sweetness to make it a little more interesting and to make it feel like you weren't just drinking a cup of coffee. I wish the abv was higher but it was still solid.
