A: Dark and hazy black body with a decent, though thin, mocha head. Good lacing down the pint glass.

S: An intoxicating coffee aroma. Sweet chocolate as well.

T: The coffee is still plentiful, but it's complemented very well by milk chocolate. Vanilla there too, as well as some possible cinnamon and nutmeg. Coffee is Americano, not espresso.

M: Good, but not very full as a big stout can be. Light.

D: Nice and pleasant, especially for the coffee lover.

Serving type: bottle

this beer is delicious. I too picked up a growler at WholeFoods today.

it is smooth and creamy with a very nice coffee taste. Much like espresso in flavor. I am a huge fan of this beer.

the aroma is of coffee with milk and sugar, light and airy. The head is a bit thinner than I expected from a milk stout but it has staying power. The taste is just light and delicious, and I really expected it to be heavier than it was but it is incredibly drinkable for a milk stout. Great beer.

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.

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.

L: Pours a deep black color with a short and medium bodied off white colored head that laces a bit on the way down.
S: Smells of sweet roasted malts, deep caramelized malts, hints of chocolate, and a sweetness probably from lactose.
T: Tastes of sweet roasted and caramelized malts, nice bits of chocolate in there, a hint of brown sugar, and a very nice balances sweet flavor at the end.
M: Very fresh, warming, perfect amount of carbonation, not too heavy feeling.
D: Very drinkable especially at such a high abv, this did not feel like an imperial stout, this felt like a really good milk stout.

On tap at The Lazy Boy Saloon with Jlynn.

I'd never heard of Keegan until my man (the bartender/owner) recommended this one to me.

A Black as night with a small brown head. Looks like a dark creamy milkshake.

S Caramel malt, coffee, and chocolate. I can def smell the lactose. Smells awesome.

T Coffee hooks up the biterness, chocolate and loctose come in for the smooth creaminess, caramel malts kick in at the end for the cherry on top. This stuff tastes awesome.

M - Very smooth and creamy with a pleasant lightness to it.

Insanely drinkable. 8 percent??? Double stout??? I plowed through this like a 5 percent session beer. This was soo tasty. What a pleasant surprise.
