This beer is a coffee onslaught. Pours thin, lucid, dark chestnut brown with some garnet shade. Nice as a breakfast beer or after dinner drink, and it is definitely on the dry side when it comes to stouts. Aroma of espresso dominates. Really light mouthfeel and the tan head doesn't impart much creaminess. Taste is reminiscent of a foamy cappucino. Some milk notes soothes the palate mid way, but the palate is decidedly roasted and charred coffee with some tarry notes. Some nutty flavor, almonds and bitter swiss chocolate are evident, but not well-integrated. The beer just seemed incomplete despite its strong and complex flavors. I'd order again and it's worth a go.

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.
