A: just about opaque black body, couple of fingers of tan foam

S: dark roasted malt aromas, with hints of coffee, espresso, and milk

T: bittersweet espresso, drier than I expected, some milk sugars and roasted malt chocolate flavors; mellow bitterness

M: smooth, slightly chalky finish, slightly coating on the tongue, medium-light body

O: a decent and light-drinking stout, mellow and roasty with ample espresso and milk characteristics; not a beer I'd go back to, but I'm not usually inclined to drink "light"-feeling/tasting milk/sweet stouts - if you dig that style, particularly with an espresso infusion, this will probably rate higher for you than me.
Don't hesitate to give it a try.

Poured into a Due South Brewing Co. snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a 99% opaque black color with a 1/2 inch light brown head that retains a bit before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and random specs of surface foam.

S- Fresh espresso aroma that's complemented very well by the lactose. Hint of vanilla.

T- Dark roast with more sweetness than in the aroma. Notes of caramel, chocolate and vanilla making for a sugary iced coffee flavor which I enjoy greatly. Also a hint of greek yogurt which I'm finding more and more in certain milk stouts.

M- Semi-creamy with medium carbonation and a full body.

O- Super solid coffee beer with a good balance of sweetness, espresso, chocolate and lactose.

Man. I'm having such a wonderful time sippin this brew. I'm pretty critical and opinionated when it comes to coffee in beer but this one is exceptional, but please let me begin:
A: dark black coffee color. Rich and of the darkest mahogany. Great lacing with off-white head that remains creamy and lush. oh yeah
S: pronounced espresso with layers of chocolate and milky textures. dark malt presence along with a good roast. bitter dark chocolate espresso aromas overall.
T: Beautiful and robust in espresso highlights. Milky and smoooth. dark chocolate and roast malt again lingers for a complete attack. Ends with a choco bitter
M: medium to full-bodied with moderate carbonation. the carbonation is perfectly balanced with the bold flavors of vanilla and chocolate.
O: killer espresso stout with a different twist of being a milk stout. Elysian does it again with another surprise and another dynamite brew. Prost!

Poured into a schooner from a 12 oz. bottle: A thick, cafe colored head that sustained throughout with layered lacing. Smells like a late. Tastes like a spiced/burnt late. Very good and great example of the style. Could use more heat from more alcohol.

3.5/5  rDev -10.9%

Appearance: Pours out like a cup of espresso though a modest head replaces the brownish film; not much retention or lacing, however

Smell: Coffee with a hint of a burnt character

Taste: Coffee flavor up front, in the middle and in the finish; just a hint of lactose in the aftertaste; oddly fruity and sweet, almost as if it were a coffee soda

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with low to moderate carbonation

Overall: Perhaps a year in the bottle did not serve this well but the beer is not particularly impressive - the body doesn't hold up and the flavors seem a bit underattenuated
