Reviewed from notes. Pours black with a thin coffee-colored head which fades to the rim and leaves spotty lace. Aroma roasted coffee, malt and dark chocolate. Flavor follows the nose. Smooth and creamy finish.

The bottle I had was infected. There was hints of vinegar in nose. Poured thin and was highly carbed. Mouthfeel was thin. Not a lot of whiskey or coffee in the taste and the finish was tart.

This is a unique and exceptional beer. I rated it high for a reason. Just the right mix of sweet cream and liquor with a nice jolt of coffee. It really does taste like Irish Coffee in a beer form. Yum.

On tap in 10 oz. snifter. Also have had it from bomber bottles. A blend of barrel aged Imperial Stout and Milk Stout. Must be predominantly the latter. The whiskey flavor is rather subtle, but coffee flavor is less so.

Thanks to Jeff for this one. 22oz. bomber into a Founders snifter.

Pours a frothy, 1.5 finger coffee colored head with good retention. Beer looks relatively thin for the style and pitch black. Lacing is thick and layered with good stick. A great looking beer.

Nose bares hints of lactose, coffee, roasted malt, liquorice, and milk chocolate. The slightest hint of tartness too. Moderately aromatic.

Opens slightly tart coffee beans, lactose, vanilla, chocolate and roasted malt. Some cocoa powder, dark chocolate and smoke and roast in the middle mixed with a mellow molasses sweetness. Fudge and mocha at the finish with a slightly ashy, roasty aftertaste. Solid.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Slick and oily in the mouth and goes down sweet and rather rich. Finishes messy with a long, lingering aftertaste. Nice.

Nice complexity and body here but I prefer my milk stouts... and especially those infused with coffee, to be a bit more robust. Still, this is very drinkable and an above average beer overall for the style.
