Thick whipped cream head is latte colored, 2" tall and long lived, leaving dense creamy rings on a Guinness pint glass. The stout is black, even when put to the light.

Upfront with latte aromas, followed by powdered chocolate and malt. Some fresh moist wheat bread makes it through as well.

Follows the nose and plays up the sweetness of the lactose. Roasted bitterness is definitely present, but well controlled. A very subtle finish.

The head is creamy and a major player, while the beer is silky smooth. A watery thin body and no discernible alcohol. Faint carbonation.

This is an amazingly drinkable milk stout. I enjoyed it with a Philly stake sandwich on a spectacular Spring day, by the Canal.

Serving type: nitro-tap

A - Solid stout colour, very dark brown bordering on black. Head is a little on the fizzy side.

S - Definitely getting that sharp bite of coffee. A little roastiness intermingles.

T - Lightly roasted malt. Watery coffee. Not much sweetness considering it's a milk stout.

M - A little thin and not as creamy and smooth as I'd have hoped.

O - I fear I may be slightly ruined regarding non-imperial stouts. Unfortunately this tasted and felt washed out to me but that may not be the beer's fault. In an effort to rate to style I rated .25 higher than I was originally inclined on most categories.

Poured from a 22 into a pint glass. The beer appears very dark with little transparency and has a big light brown head that leaves little lacing. It has a nice espresso smell with a hoppiness. It's a nice split shot between fresh hops and your morning espresso. Very nice. It has a creamy mouth feel with a dry finish. Overall a good choice for breakfast or brunch.

A: Nice rich black color. Presents with a 1 finger tan head. The head recedes leaving some wispy lacing.

S: Black coffee - the kind a lady named Flo' would serve a trucker at a diner. This is a no doubt - punch to the nose coffee scent.

T: Slightly bitter coffee. I feel like there is something else in there maybe a hint of chocolate - but it is lots of coffee (but not unpleasant).

M: Overall mouth feel is nice but a little less smooth than I would expect for a milk stout. Slightly more carbonated than would be ideal - but nothing too bad. Goes down well.

O: If you do not like coffee this should be avoided. It is very coffee forward and coffee in the mid and late - it is coffee everywhere. I am not a coffee drinker but I enjoy this beer. I like that Elysian just said, "ah screw it let's not nibble around the edges - let's just make coffee with some stout in there." I like this and will drink it again. I am excited to suggest it to a few friends that are coffee drinkers.

Grabbed this stout at Fathead's Saloon, I enjoyed this stout. A Nice dark brown/black appearance with a sweet smell. Tasted great! I could really taste the Espresso, it wasn't super overpowering, which made it great. It was light for a stout, but still tasted good.

Serving type: on-tap
