We went to the Independent in Tampa, FL specially for this as I've heard that this was the bomb stout to have. No doubt ... I was not let down. It's memorable and fabulous.

A - dark and opaque; the head is a lovely brown cream with nice lacing
S - what an aroma; the best of fresh coffee smells and chocolate malts
T- I've never had a better stout; although, I've been told to try Moat Water as this would be a good rival.
M - just perfectly coffee thick; the more you swish the more you love its complexities.
O - If you like coffee and beer, my goodness, you'll love-love this one.

On tap at BX Beer Depot's CCB Tap Takeover

One of my favorite beers of all time. Lactose, freshly ground coffee, bittersweet chocolate, and solid roasty notes to it. Surprisingly balanced between sweet and bitter. Very robust and complex, makes for a great digestif

Bottle courtesy of JRedner. Pours a dark black color with no head. Aroma is pure freshly cracked roasted coffee beans (that I could smell the minute the bottle was opened). Flavor is almost exactly the same with some hints of vanilla and cream with fainter notes of raisins, roasted malts and spice. Full body with lingering coffee finish. If you like coffee beers, this is the granddaddy of them all.

Review from notes, I was lucky enough to be able to enjoy this one. I love CCB, and this was one of the best they ever put out. Growler poured into a couple pint glasses.

The pour was spot on, dark brown, nearly black in color with a big head of tan that towered over the top of the glass, reaching back it coats the entire inside of the glass thoroughly and completely. Aroma reaks of sweet coffee, vanilla, almost caramel like notes. Warming brings forward vanilla now as well. Really just wonderfully done here. I take the first sip and I am blown away. Rich decadent vanilla notes as well as huge sweet coffee presence. Rich and very filling it coats the palate completely and really just is at a near perfect balance. Long finish is sweet, full of sugar and just a wonderful session stout.

Overall one of the best milk stouts ever made and it really goes to show how you can take a style that has been done to death and put a reat new spin on it. Cheers to them, this was outstanding.
