look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12oz bottle. Dated 9/23/2014. Poured into a snifter 10/20/2014.

A- Dark black body, two finger light brown head with a lot of retention time. Not much lacing. [3.5]

S- Roast malt, black coffee, slightly burnt grain, earthy hops. Smells good, not complex, but exactly what is advertised. [3.75]

F- Milk chocolate sweetness, bitter black coffee, roast malts. Bitter burnt malt and earthy hops on the finish. This is a more than solid combination of flavours, I'm enjoying this one quite a bit, certainly tastes better than it smells. [4]

M- Thinner bodied, though closer to medium than straight up thin, about par for the American Stout style. Just enough carbonation to keep it crisp and refreshing. A good characteristic to have in a coffee stout. [3.75]

O- Pretty good coffee stout. Plenty of coffee, plenty of roast malt. Just about what you'd expect from an above-average, tasty coffee stout. This packs more flavour than our more local New Glarus Coffee Stout, but it hits you a little bit more quickly. Surprising that it isn't as well-received as I'd expect based on my review, but then again Lakefront has a tendency to be underrated. [4]

12 oz. bottle (04/17/13) poured into Sam Smith's imperial pint.

A- A normal pour creates 1-1/2 fingers of dark tan head. The body is dark brown, nearing black. Head drops to a thin film. Very light lacing left on the glass.

S- Lots of coffee and dark chocolate. Dark roasted and strong. Very aromatic.

T- As the aroma suggests. Clearly infused with coffee, an underlying chocolate quality, and hints of vanilla. Definite dark roasted malts as well.

M- Medium body with moderate carbonation. Light tingle.

O- Very nice coffee stout. I particularly like the pricing point (1.59 for the bottle at Copper Vine). While not a deal breaker for me, the USDA Organic stamp is a bonus. Maybe not quite up to the Bell's or Dark Horse versions, but very drinkable.

Pours a thin tan head on a dark brown colored body.
The aroma is a nice mixture of dark chocolate, roasted malt and milk.
The taste has lots of coffee notes: bitter dark chocolate, sweet roasted malt and milk. Mild bitterness at the end.
The texture is crisp with a soft edge.
Great aroma and a descent tasting beer.
