Nice amount of coffee, which balances the milk stout sweetness, and good body for the moderate ABV. Thumbs up!

12oz bottle into tulip

Appearance - Pours a very dark, very opaque brown. One finger head sticks around for a long time and leaves solid lacing.

Smell - Coffee and lots of it up front with dark roastiness, sweet and chocolatey richness, clean and toasty malts tie it all together. This is a very rich smelling beer.

Taste - This is also a very rich, flavorful tasting beer! Coffee is front and center with rich, roasty, toasty goodness: the coffee is masterfully done, no burnt bitterness and not overwhelming. Malts are toasty, bready, chocolatey, and bring in a moderate sweetness. Earthy, grassy hops provide a much needed subtle bitterness to balance. Finishes with a moderate touch of milky sweetness then leans on light roasty bitterness.

Feel - Smooth, creamy, thick medium-full body. Even though carbonation is ample, even though this beer tastes balanced, given the low(ish) alcohol content, this beer feels fairly heavy.

Overall - No joke, this tastes quite reminiscent of a quad-shot mocha complete with whipped cream topping from your local coffee shop. While not nearly that sweet, it's still very rich and decadent tasting... almost to a fault: I don't think I could have more than a few of these in a session. That being said, I would think this is practically spot in for the style. A pretty damn impressive beer, overall.
