Pours opaque, dark brown in color with one inch head. Taste is Swiss milk chocolate, vanilla wafers, and light coffee. Medium bodied, sweet, with moderate carbonation. Makes for a very good milk stout...Love the chocolate flavor. This is a beer that I could have all day during the cooler months...Really well done.

Had last night at the brewery, pours inky black with a tan head that leaves some lacing. Smell is nice roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and there's a mild vanilla note here, very nice. Taste is good stout, but I feel like stuff is missing. It has a great base of malt, bitterness, with some coffee and char, but the vanilla isn't really there and there isn't as much coffee as you'd expect. Overall this needs some work but it has a nice foundation.

12oz bottle. Pours a dark brownish black color with a small amount of head. Some lacing. Lots of vanilla in the nose as well as earth, coffee, chocolate, cappuccino, and roasted malts. Smells very sweet. The taste is more vanilla than coffee with some bitter dark chocolate and roasted malts at the end. I bit too much vanilla and not enough coffee for me, but it's still pretty good. Light mouthfeel. Overall, a decent variation but I prefer their regular Coffee Stout.

Moderate pour yields an almost 2" tan head over a dark brown body with some lacing. Nose of vanilla, roasted malt, and slight mocha. Tastes of vanilla and a little coffee. Feel is a tad thin and overall, not bad.
