A: A pitch black in colorm with a slight tan head at the top that left not to much lacing around the glass as you drank.

S: Large coffee notes on this one, and the chocolate is definitely present, slight of roasted malts as well.

T: Almost exactly like the nose, with lots of coffee flavors, and hints of chocolate, very warming.

M: Medium to heavy body, slight stickyness and slight carbonation

O: Not a bad beer, first time I ever tried it, a nice balance throughout and nice warming effect as well, Somewhat filling.

this stuff is great. a sessionable milk stout with a bit of coffee, subtle on that front, easy drinking and delicious. dark brown pour with some viscosity and about an inch of head, close to white, that sticks around pretty well. the nose is more of the lactose sugar than the espresso, but i get the classic bitterness from the coffee to balance the sweetness of the stout. the grain is fresh and well roasted, not super dark, with some chocolate notes in both aroma and flavor. the coffee is up front in the taste, not dominant at all, but just an accent. similarly, i dont get much caffeine from this, which aids drinkability for me. the back end is the milk stout part, the lactose sugar gives sweetness and body to an already rich feeling drink, with excellent carbonation this is very satisfying. elysian makes some great pumpkin beer, and now its nice to see some of their other stuff on the market here in denver, this is very good milk stout.

Sampled bottles of this beer at a beer bar in Mount Joy. Quite a nice surprise. I am pouring a cold beer into a pint glass.
The beer is a rich black coffee hue with tan head of about 1 cm that is creamy and rich and sticks around in the glass.
Aroma is roasted malt and sweet chocolate milk with some coffee beans. Generally a complex malty nose that reminds me of a mocha latte.
First sip reveals an average body with smooth silky texture. Very mild carbonation.
Flavor is roasted malt and coffee beans with some sweet chocolate and lactose hits that are mixed in and linger after each sip.
A little bit of a coating on my palate each sip.
Definitely on the sweeter side of a coffee beer and I enjoy it and had more than one in my sitting at the bar.
Worth a try if you like milk stouts and coffee beers. Lots going on and very interesting and enjoyable.
