Aggressive pour barely yields a thin coating across the surface, dark brown and quick to dissolve, the lacing is wispy but does stick very well. The liquid is an extremely dark brown to black color, possesses a light orange tint around the rims. The nose subtly builds into a crescendo of coffee, cocoa and general toastiness, light dark fruits mixed into the above average hoppiness, never gets as milky as you think it might, stays streamlined and focused, more roast than sweetness which helps it penetrate deeper. Medium-bodied, nowhere near heavy, here the carbonation puts some spring in its step. Not sugary sweet, undercurrent of butterscotch and molasses while the emphasis remains on roasted coffee, dark chocolate and vanilla bean. You get some mixed white citrus, more than any herbal leafiness or earthiness. Seems to go much more for drinkability than overt complexity and, if so, succeeds. Mild cherry to even apricot fruit. Dryness welcome and keeps it refreshing. Quite enjoyable and free of the bombast one finds often with brews like this.

Visited Keegan Ale's last night to sample all of their current brews on tap. After sampling the Joe Mama's Milk Stout, I had to get a pint.
The appearance is dark dark black with a a nice tan head. The smell is similar to the Mother's Milk stout, but with a hint of coffee. Between Joe Mama's and Mother's Milk, the difference in smell is subtle. However, taste is what makes this brew stand out. From the moment in hits your mouth, there is an almost overwhelming flavor of cold brew black coffee (great if you're a coffee lover). The chocolate notes, along with the creamy mouthfeel, are a perfect compliment to the bitter black coffee flavor.
Get this beer while it lasts.

Was very impressed by this beer.
didn't know the brand or the line, but ordered at a restaurant that had it on tap. Very much get a Coffee with heavy cream taste and smell. Looks the way a stout should smells and taste great. I would highly recommend.
