A: Pours an opaque black color. A two finger tan head forms with good retention and light lace left behind.
S: Coffee grounds covered in chocolate. That is all there is in the nose.
T: Like the nose, chocolate covered coffee beans, sweetness and light vanilla. Just a light coffee bitterness lingers.
M/O: A full body with low to moderate carbonation. This is ultra smooth, like cream and silk. This becomes almost more desert like and sweet as this warms. Interesting and enjoyable to drink, though probably not something I can come back to often.

There is almost no discernible stout characteristics. I don't even get any roast, just silky chocolate covered beans. Which becomes more desert like with its chocolate sweetness as this warms. Not bad at all, and succeeds in what it wants to be. Though if looking for any kind of actual stout flavors, go elsewhere. While not exactly my thing, still enjoyable.

Poured from bottle into tulip, small 1/2 finger tan head, recedes quickly, so so lacing. Jet black in the glass, looks viscous, no light passes thru. Smells of roasted malt, and coffee, some slight chocolate notes. Taste is cold brew coffee up front with a good amount of sweetness. There is some chocolate and roast character banging around, but it is pretty much all about the coffee. Surprisingly low astringency from the malt, this is very smooth drinking with a slightly mild bitterness on the finish. The lingering aftertaste is similar to the aftertaste you get when you bite into a chocolate covered coffee bean. Carbonatation is on point with just enough to wake up the tongue on each sip. Great beer.

Nice coffee stout with vanilla bean. Great coffee character with strong notes of vanilla bean.
Palate is sweet chocolate, rounded cold press coffee, little to no bitterness, subtle roast, and a heap of vanilla.

Nice beer. Detractors are the cloyingly sweet aspect. Tastes underattenuated with a lot of residual sugar, possibly lactose, in combination with a ton of vanilla bean is just a little too much. This is a pastry stout in lower abv format. Just not quite my style. But if you like really sweet stouts with coffee and vanilla, this is for you.

Bottled 10/19/18.

Dark, viscous pour. Deep brown, nearly black in color, with a tan head of foam that rises slowly to about a half a finger, then settles back into the glass in a soft ring.

A nose loaded with roasted coffee beans and dark chocolate. Strong, balanced, and really good. The nose finished with that same ground coffee aroma, a straight-out-of-the grinder feel.

Coffee, coffee, and more coffee. The flavors are not quite as potent, but subtly more complex than the nose. That roasted coffee bean flavor comes out right away, but as it settles on the tongue, you get a nice malt bill to compliment the chocolate flavors on the backbone of the flavor profile.

Smooth mouthfeel, with a low carbonation, and sticky finish. No lingering bitterness, just left with that feeling like I really did just drink a cup of coffee. Very well done.

Pours oily almost-black with a dark brown, slow forming head.
Smells a strong and rich coffee aroma., & persistent head.
The taste? It blew my mind; it's an incredibly sweet and creamy stout that compliments its 7.2 abv perfectly. It's essentially a rich cold brew with milk & sugar. very very subtle hoppy profile. FINALLY, a beer that isn't scared of its own coffee sweetness and ruins it with hops. It's hard to find but fantastic.

Probably the best coffee stout I've had. The 1st taste and I was hooked. The smell was delicious and the taste was very balanced.

A - Pitch black colored pour with thick, caramel colored creamy frothy head, sticky lacing.

S - Pungent coffee bean aroma, even at nine months old which is impressive. Light smoke and creme.

T - Heavy coffee roast from start to finish, light char and smoke, dark roast chocolate.

M - Thick body.

O - This is on my list of best coffee stouts. For only 6.6%, this has the flavor intensity and body of an Imperial Stout. Outstanding and recommended.

Poured out as a very nice dark black color with a mocha colored head on top that lasted the entire time I drank the beer. The coffee aroma on this beer is absolutely stunning, I really love the smell of this beer so much. The taste is really close to the aroma, the flavors of coffee that they're getting in this beer are truly magical in my opinion. The feel of the beer works very well for the style. Overall I really have a difficult time finding flaws on this one, I'd definitely buy a lot more of this if I lived in an area where it was accessible to me.

An absolute juggernaut as far as coffee stouts, some people argue this and founders breakfast but they are two separate leagues honestly.. This one is a lower ABV but so delicious, sweet coffee that could be drank all day everyday. An absolute gem!!! Founders is a different animal, I hate when people that compare these two.
Founders is better as a higher abv, yet Reve is the better taste as the lower ABV. Both amazing.

Rêve has a thin-to-medium beige head, a very dark brown appearance, and minimal glass lacing. Aroma is of strong, dark-roasted, creamy, sweet coffee, with brown bread crust. Taste is similar, but there is no burnt qualities, but, rather, mellow char notes. Mouthfeel is medium, and Rêve finishes semi-sweet.
