Had this on tap at CCB in a 12oz snifter. I noticed that this site has the ABV listed at 6% but it is definitely 8%, which is why it was served in a smaller glass.

I'm going to be rating this high but should probably go even higher. This brew looked great in color and head. It smelled great but I have seen a few better, but not many. I was creamy, thick,and perfectly balanced. I didn't want to leave but had to fly home. If you like a stout that has some kick and isn't watery, this is one that shouldn't be missed.

On nitro tap at Tall Paul's (FL).

Pours essentially black with a very creamy tan head that has excellent retention and a full coat of lacing on the glass - perfect.

Smell: coffee with faint roasted malt and chocolate.

Taste: Dark roasted grains under cafe con leche, as one might expect from the name. A bit too sweet.

Feel: very smooth; medium-light body.

Overall: recommended for fans of sweetened cafe con leche.

One of 6 samples at the tasting room 1/29/14

This beer is black, like oil but not as heavy and viscous though certainly thick, rich and robust in appearance. It's nitro creamy, the silky tan head leaving a broken sheet of lace almost all the way down the glass. It's a real beauty, with a balance between thick, rich and strong against soft and creamy; it looks like it works to me.
Café con leche to perfection; this beer really is like drinking coffee with milk in it. It's not like average, pretty good or good coffee, either. This smells and tastes like high-grade, premium stuff like I could barely get from kopi. Somehow this beer is brewed so that the ingredients used and how they're brewed give so much flavor, and the roast managed so well to at once serve to remind me this is beer while adding to the fresh coffee effect. This is fresh just-ground premium dark roast with a little milky sweetness and so much creamy flavor that I swear there must be half-and-half in it. It's beautiful, it's silky, it's roasty, it's a little nutty, it's just barely smoky, it's smooth as anything, and it's one of the most delicious stout of any kind I've ever had the pleasure of drinking.
The body is full but leans the direction of medium without losing anything. The roast adds a dryness that contrasts with the otherwise silky smoothness of the nitro. It's not a perfectly smooth flow on the tongue, but it's fantastic nonetheless.
