An amazing, "coffee-cream" stout! Literally tastes like a cold brew coffee with notes of; chocolate, vanilla & slight coconut. I'd love to try the BA version to see how the barrel changes the base version.

Pours like a very dark coffee stout. Damn near opaque, chocolate brown head.

Smells of giant coffee nodes. Like, I'm not talking coffee-like. I mean it smells like you're holding a nice glass of some high-acid coffee right up to your face--there's lots of sweet, bitter, sour, and stingy complexities that I have never before found in a coffee stout, only in an actual glass of actual coffee.

Tastes basically the same, only with more sweet stout nodes coming in. Sweet stout up front moving into excellent and complex coffee, ending on dry hops. Excellent.

This is a goddamn gem. It's Where It's At. That is, this beer is an exclamation that's also the chorus of an unorthodox pop song that's as hummable and familiar as it unique and life-affirming. Find it, buy it, drink it.

Picked up a single bottle from Horrock's on recommendation from one of the beer and wine guys. Poured into a porter/stout glass. It looked and smelled amazing. A wonderful smell of creamy, chocolaty coffee. I loved the silky, easy drinking of this one. A bit too easy drinking for the ABV! All the flavors blend together well with coffee coming through the strongest. It was good to the last drop. ;) I'd buy this again.

everything a "coffee stout" should be. Pitch black, tan head, unmistakable coffee on the nose with a balanced measure of coffee in the sip. Coffee bitterness tempered with sweetness. Higher alcohol is worked into the palate without being boozy. Mouth feel is semi silky, moderately creamy. Overall, a stellar example of an imperial coffee stout.

I loved this collaboration. The mouthfeel was thinner than I would have thought, however as it warmed up I was getting more and more presence.

The smell was great. Some coffee and chocolate, a touch of booze, hops.

The taste was wonderful. Definitely got lots of coffee but the coffee worked perfectly in this brew. Sometimes with milk stouts the addition of coffee gives me a sickly sweet latte feel. The balance of this one, however, was really nice and inviting. I would compare this to Big Hugs (Half Acre), but I enjoyed this more.

I was actually given a taste of the bourbon barrel aged version of this and liked the regular more. Good stuff guys.

This isnt a beer. This is a delicious extreme roasted cup of coffee. With hints of stout. Actually it tastes more like an imperial brown ale than a milk stout. Maybe its all the roasty bitterness that blends well with the sweetness of the stout. Very well balanced . Each ingredient compliments another.

That being said... Pours typical stout black. Off white head. Strong lacing. Smells of strong roasted coffee, light chocolate, slight sweetness buried in there. Taste is super bitter coffee that is mixed well with sweet milk and sugar followed by a dry mouthfeel. Medium body and carbonation.

Definitely a great brew for any coffee lover.
