Heavy roasted coffee notes here, which makes sense Jet black body and a nice head, but for a sliver of copper at the base.

Rich espresso and lactose with a bit of hop balance to add complexity. The smoothness is impressive. Maybe a touch more carbonation than I woud prefer but if you like coffee stouts this is a solid choice.

Distinctly coffee-flavored, but it is not overpowering. Little head, looks flat but is fairly spiritedly and bubbly on the tongue. Tasty, probably my second favorite coffee stout thus far.

Poured into a small chalice: color is black, solid; head is light tan with fine bubbles.

Smell is pleasant coffee roastiness, light malt chocolate, and hint of cream/lactose.

Taste is coffee, roastiness, chocolate bitter, then light lactose.

Mouthfeel is moderately carbonated, light roast and coffee bitterness.

Overall a good coffee cream/lactose stout, pleasant coffee flavor, moderate sweetness, good bitterness.

Brown in color with no head or lacing.

Strong coffee on the nose with a bit of sweetness, smoke, and maybe vanilla.

Black coffee, lactose, mild sweetness, vanilla, and a bit of oak.

Mouthful is medium to light and thin. Carbonation is low. Finish is dry and bitterish.

Described as a coffee cream stout which it does hit the mark in namesake. Aside from that, it is disappointing between the taste and mouthful. The taste isnt bad, just lacking - nothing dynamic. The mouthful is just plain weak. Everything else is okay.

Poured from a bottle into a glass. Nice, dark color with a light head to it. Pleasing aroma, slightly sweet and the promise of coffee. Good coffee flavor up front, like a nice glass of iced coffee and a clean finish to it. I usually keep some on hand through winter and highly recommend trying it.
