Pours opaque, dark brown in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is coffee, roasted malt, and dark chocolate. Medium-light bodied, roasty-bitter, with moderate carbonation. Makes for an ok to slightly above average milk stout. The coffee is almost one note and this one does not measure up to other coffee stouts I have had lately. Really like the brewery, but this one is not at the same level as their other recent bomber releases.

Served from 22 oz bottle with best by 01/06/18 into glass at home. Pours deep black, opaque with small short lived tawny head. Aroma is full of intense robust roasty coffee when opened but diminishes quickly after poured. No detectable hop aroma. Flavor is much less coffee forward than the aroma, in fact it is barely detectable. The major flavor is dark roasted malt and a subtle milky sweetness. No detectable hop flavor. Smooth creamy body, a little thin, low bitterness, very low carbonation. No detectable alcohol flavor. Overall this beer makes a good first impression with a strong coffee aroma but leaves a lot to be desired in the taste component. Still a decent example of a coffee milk stout that is really easy to drink.

This is a completely black brew, topped with a cream colored head. The aroma is of dark malt, chocolate, and coffee...backed by deeply roasted grains. Wonderful roasted notes....Sweet, milk-like texture and a coffee undertone. Full and rich body. Excellent.

Poured from a bomber into a Lagunitas Mason Jar glass.
L: Pours a very dark brown with some red highlights around the edges, massive head that almost looks like a nitro pours, and leaves some great lacing.
S: Coffee on the nose along with some chocolate.
T: Taste matches the aroma, maybe a bit to sweet from the milk sugar.
F: This is a bit thin for me, but I suspect that about right for the style. Nice carbonation.
O: I'm not a big fan of milk stouts, or Abita. That being said, I think this is a very good beer. Thanks to Jerry in Minneapolis for this one.

Pours motor oil black with a two finger width tan head. Smells like a cup of Folger's coffee. Taste is like Folger's coffee. Mouthfeel, is like Folger's coffee. Overall, are you sure this isn't Folger's? It is the best beer I've had from this brewery though.

Poured from the tap into a 20 oz mug at the Taco Mac in Atlanta. The appearance is a black color with a small tan colored head. The aroma is coffee and chocolate. The taste is very similar to the nose. An excellent beer.
