Very dark draft with a beautiful tan head. Strong aroma of burnt toast and dark chocolate. A slightly sweet finish. A delicious refreshment.

Classic appearance and pour for the style, one finger tan head with a pitch black body. The aroma is a HUGE punch of roasted coffee bitterness, with the emphasis on bitter. Burnt toast, dark unsweetened chocolate... Heavenly. Taste follows the nose, but with a slight sweetness to balance out the bitterness of everything else. The stout itself is very full-bodied for a 5.3% beer, almost like the consistency of milk itself. Overall a fantastic representation of the style.

Pours jet opaque black, light tan head dissipates to nothing.

Aroma of coffee beans, toast, cocoa, and earthy undertones.

Flavor is of cocoa, coffee bean, lactose, roast and biscuit.

Medium to full body with a light tingle of carbonation on the tongue.

Tasty milk stout with some good flavor and body at a drinkable abv. Worth a try, very enjoyable.

Served on draft at Aubrey's Knoxville Strawberry Plains. This one leans heavy toward the coffee side. Not sure if there is coffee in this one but it is deeply ingrained in this one. Coffee aromas and full coffee flavor. Well balanced and an easy drinker. Highly enjoyable.

Nice dark beer with a roasty sweet coffee and cream aroma. The taste is pleasantly sweet up front with with a roasted coffee flavor in the middle and a bitter coffee finish. There is a lingering bitterness and sweetness. The mouthfeel felt a bit thin for a milk stout but this is otherwise a very tasty beer.

12/30....pours dark black brown with light foam. Sweet coffee creamer nose. Strong coffee burst. Medium bitter smooth creamy mouthfeel. The coffee pushes and the lactose keeps it smooth.
