S: Dark coffee, some roastiness, deep earthiness.

L: Dark black, dark tan creamy head that dissipates. Some lacing.

T: Bitter coffee up front with some chocolate notes. Low bitterness with a very pleasant, almost milk sugar note along with milk chocolate. Finishes semi-sweet with chocolate and some roasty bitterness.

M: Medium full body, medium bodied.

Not bad, coffee was pretty subdued except in the aroma. I actually like the lactose/milk chocolate notes better than the coffee.

Poured into a Hard Rock Cafe pint glass straight from Boston,MA at 55 degrees.

A: Has a dark dark brown hue to it, almost transparent when looking through any angle of the glass, but still maintains that its brown and not "pitch black" as many stouts.

S: Smells like high quality cold black coffee on ice. Also get a dark chocolate characteristic on the nose.

T: Tastes like perfect cold/vanilla/wood coffee. Its just fantastic if your a coffee drinker and love beer. Its the first time I'm enjoying Guatemale antigua coffee beans, but I likey.

M: Mouthfeel is a bit oily, but very suitable for the beer's ABV and what it is trying to achieve.

O: Guatemala needs to be noted by craft breweries who want to pump out a sweet and savory coffee stout. The antigua coffee beans put a new characteristic into this brew that is hard to parallel. Its one of my favorite light stouts on the market and the bonus factor goes to that its only an hour from me. Keep pumping out the stouts, AleWerks...they far surpass anything else you make.

on tap at barrel house - served in pint

Pours an opaque blacked out color with a thin crop of beige head. Fades out completely while leaving some patches of lacing on the glass.

Eruption of sweet coffee scents with roasted beans, cream, vanilla and cocoa. Milk chocolate sweetness, dark malts and molasses.

Well balanced coffee and chocolate right up front with a milky kiss. Sweet, but not cloying, vanilla, cream and mild dark malts. Decent backbone riddled with nutty coffee beans and cocoa. Finishes clean with lingering coffee bitterness.

Fuller medium body, decent carbonation, creamy and silky on the tongue. Pretty impressive for a milk stout, especially with the coffee adding a completely new dimension to the profile. I'll definitely be drinking this again.

Pours a cola color with a small, tan head that leaves little bits of lacing.

Smells of light coffee and chocolate notes.

Tastes of the roasted malts with a touch of bitterness. Roasted notes of a medium roast coffee lead off with semi-sweet chocolate following. Sweetens up a bit leading into a caramel note. Roasted bitterness comes in and adds to the coffee feel. Ends with a kiss of sugary sweetness.

Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a solid stout that is worth a look at $10 a six pack.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter. Bottling date is 11/16/12.

A: Very black with small amounts of light getting through at the glass edges. Less than half a finger of medium khaki head. Decent amount of lacing.

S: Pretty interesting smell. I get the aroma of a cup of coffee that's had a creamer added along with roasted notes and some chocolate.

T: The coffee is not quite as prominent in the taste as the aroma but still has a decent presence. I definitely like the balance between the sweetness/lactose followed by the coffee.

M: It's not quite medium bodied but it's got enough to keep it from feeling too thin. Carbonation feels just right.

O: I really liked this one and it makes me anxious to try to the cafe royale. Definitely would recommend if you are into milk stouts.

A- Pours a dark, almost black, but is still semitransparent when held up to light. Very little head to speak of, and hardly any lacing.

S- Pretty mild smell; some toasted malt, coffee, caramel, etc.

T- Good taste of some roasted malts and coffee. Very little bitterness, but is slightly sweet and chocolaty. Mouth is nicely carbonated but fairly thin in my opinion.

O- Not a bad coffee stout. I like it pretty well for a lower ABV stout. First beer I have enjoyed from this brewery. Of course, I have yet to taste Cafe Royale...

A - Black beer that looks slightly brown-hued with a tan head that faded to a very nice looking ring around the side of the beer.

S - Slight bit of toffee, some roast, caramel and a bit of coffee. Smells pretty nice.

T - Not as good as the nose. There's a bit of slight astringency at first, but it fades into a decent coffee taste. There's a bit of milk, lactose, and sweetness. It's not a world beater, but it's a solid beer.

M - Creamy, close to full bodied, lower carbonation. Very smooth.

O - Not a bad beer, but not particularly memorable. Easy to drink, could use a little bit more coffee flavor if it's calling itself a coffeehouse stout.

A: Pretty black for a low abv stout. A nice tan head poofs up, followed by decent lacing.

S: This is really heavy on the coffee, with burnt malts coming through at the end. The coffee is very appealing.

T: A blast of coffee on the front end. It quickly mellows, but is still prevelant. It blends with the burnt malt as it mellows. I'm getting milk with the malt and coffee. Semi-bitter chocolate is there, but not really a key player, since it plays second fiddle to the coffee.

M: Creamy, well carbonated, smooth! Well done and certainly a milk stout's body.

O: This is no doubt the best low abv-less than 7% abv- coffee stout I've had to date. It tastes like a mini breakfast stout with a milkier body. Outstanding.
