Mornin' LatteMornin' Latte
Notes: Mornin’ Latte is an imperial coffee milk stout brewed with lactose and a careful blend of cacao nibs and aromatic coffee to emulate an iced mocha latte. This delicious beer asks you to slow down, pour a glass and enjoy the moment.

Dark brown/black in appearance. Thin mocha head with marginal lacing.

Big coffee and chocolate nose. Roasty malts, vanilla and sweet smelling.

Full mouthfeel. Coffee upfront with hints of chocolate and caramel. Malty & sweet...lactose leaves your lips sticky. Warm & boozy. Tremendous brew.

Poured from can on 4-6-19. Pours a really dark brown with tannish head. Not much going on in the smell category, I get a faint whiff of coffee. I really enjoyed to taste on this one. The stout is balance with the coffee flavor, and most of all I could really pick up on the lactose, which is pretty rare for me. I liked this beer.

Black pour with a tan head. This beer tasted really good. It was a fine balance between sweet and stout, and seems pretty similar to some of the really high rated whale beers from TG.

Jet black in color with a tan head that had goo staying power. The smell is a nice balance of smell with notes of coffee beans and dark chocolate. The taste is smooth milky, bitter chocolate, with a roasted vanilla taste. The feel is medium with light carbonation. Overall this is a nice coffee stout.

This is a really great beer. It pours thick, dark, and bubbly almost like a nitro stout in the way the bubbles take shape. It leaves a lighter brown, but still thick head and lacing. The aroma is sweet and well balanced. Same with the taste. Definitely sweeter than your average milk stout but really great. High viscosity on the mouthfeel lets you know this is not a low calorie offering. Overall a really great beer!

This is a slightly lighter version of Mornin' Delight, and it's certainly got that milky latte character throughout the roasty stout, with a full froth and soft body that delivers less of that intense maple than the non-Latte version, which might in the end make it a bit more of a drinking beer. It's also got notes of caramel I did not get in the other version.

Pours black as can be. Aroma is chocolate with a hint of coffee. Taste is wonderful - coffee & sweet. Expected a fuller mouthfeel but this is an incredible stout.

16oz can poured into grenade glass

Pour looks thick and viscous. Dark brown in the glass(bordering on black), but a nice lighter brown seen through the pour and around the edges of the glass. Bitter coffee on the nose with some brown sugar. The first sip was really surprising. Sweet cream and mellow coffee. Almost a touch of light caramel up front. The taste of the coffee isn’t abrasive at all. Very complimentary and more like a chocolate covered roasted coffee bean. Very slick but oddly light and fluffy feel. Sweet and sticky lingering finish. Overall a great brew. This is my first stout from TG and I know understand why these beers are so coveted.

They were going for an iced mocha latte and they succeeded. That being said, I drink my coffee black, no sugar so this is way too sweet for my taste. The chocolate flavor is sweet milk chocolate which just piles on to the sweetness.

A jet black color on the pour with a full and sustaining brown head of bubbles and nice lacing. Malts and coffee on the nose but not nearly as floral as the can suggests. The drinking hits slightly sweet on the first few sips with a rush of the chocolate malts. A smooth and silky flow that finishes that way as well. Really coffee forward flavors with rich chocolate malt. Additional notes of cocoa, caramel, mocha, lactose, and char. The mouth feel is superb and really evident right away. Just crazy smooth, lush, thick, rich and sticky. The flavors linger so nicely after each sip.

Wow, this is great stuff. I only grabbed a single can but I will be buying full 4 packs going forward- especially for morning drinking.

16oz can. Stamped on canning date of '09/04/19.
Dark brown colored body, with medium brown back lit highlights. Two finger tan, small bubble head, which reduces by expelling large bubble, and resulting in a creamy tan cap. Lacing spots tend to slide back down into body.
Aroma is a burst of coffee and lactose. There is some cocoa evident also.
Taste is a delicious blend of coffee, chocolate, and the sweetness of lactose. A can description of "an iced mocha latte" is accurate. No coffee bitterness.
Thicker mouth feel. Good carbonation.
The sliding lacing spots are a visual treat. A overall sweet mocha coffee beer, which is better if imbibed in a slower fashion. The lactose addition is clearly evident throughout.
