I was really looking forward to this, but ended up very disappointed. I really didn't taste very much coffee and it was not what I anticipated for a milk stout. I tasted lots of tobacco flavor and bitterness. Not my cup of tea.

A blonde stout with vanilla and coffee beans. Golden amber color with a nice creamy head. More amusing than most brewing jokes. It's actually quite tasty, and seems to please the ladies. It starts out with an aroma that is simply sticking your nose in the bag of freshly ground coffee. Astoundingly flavorful with a sweet and bitter profile.

This is quite sweet with that Milk Stout sensation, as long as you close your eyes. The coffee flavor is really strong, but quite mellow and rounded and goes nicely with the vanilla. This is one for a short after dinner glass. On tap at Local Habit in San Diego.
