No head but that's a bit unfair because it came from already opened growler. Near black color. No light passes.

Smells like pure coffee grounds. Absolutely no cream or sugar to this. If I were blindfolded, I would think this is an iced coffee.

Starts dark malt and only gets darker as I swallow it. Very much like an iced coffee. The body is slightly thin. The carbonation is low. This is infused with an unbelievable amount black patent malt in this beer.

This is truly the ice coffee shop of beers.

Had this brew on tap at Ciro's-Tavern on Cherry in Woonsocket, RI.

The ABV was not given and it was hard to judge appearance through their "mug club" hardware. As for the rest of the review, it was as advertised, a rich and creamy milk stout brewed with roasted barley, Challenger Hops and delicate balance of coffee.

It was a sweet and all around good first offering from this brand new Northern RI "Nano" brewery. The only thing I would have liked to see was some more carbonation. It poured with very little head. I don't know if it was just this batch or what, but it wasn't the tap as other brews seemed fine. I'll update this after a few more tastings.

This brewer has a couple more offerings in the making and I'm excited for that.
Good luck Dorian and thanks.

On-tap 6/23/2013 at Doherty’s Ale House in Warwick, RI, served in a tapered mug glass.

A: The beer is a deep dark brown color, with a short beige head that fades quickly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains black coffee, chocolate, roasted malts and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with a strong black coffee flavor that dominates. There’s also some chocolate in the background. There’s a hearty roasted malt character and a very mild but complementary hops presence that provides a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Very tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a nice flavorful and sessionable stout.

Pours a deep black with a cap of head that laces nicely. Faint coffee aroma. Very pronounced coffee bitterness that trails off rapidly to a dry finish.

Had at ciros in Woonsocket. Poured with half inch of darker foam that faded quickly and left no rings. Smooth and creamy but with more bitterness than I'd expect from this style and a slight metallic taste. Coffee and roastiness shone but something was off. A bit light on the mouthfeel for me as well but the smoothness was nice. Not my favorite milk stout but a nice effort. I was excited to try this beer and was a bit disappointed.
