This is a true breakfast stout, as in, it goes down great at brunch with eggs and bacon. Not all that sessionable, but can’t go wrong with one or two. Especially good for “hair of the dog” situations!

12 oz can, no date.

The crack of the can yields a foamy build up and when poured into the snifter via soft sidewall yields a strong, large 2 finger head that recedes to a fingernail within 20 seconds. Silky black body underneath.

Wonderful coffee aromas. Not vegetal, not peppery, just beautiful and acidic. The roasty dryness is all too real. Great caramel tones underneath, with a nice blast of roast barley and very faint lactose sweetness. Great stuff.

The flavor profile is full bodied and sweet, with a nice acidic pepper presence. Slight floral hop accompanies the body, giving it a nice depth. Coffee and chocolate intermingle like a metallic biscotti and some polite burnt caramel and hot fudge notes pop up here and there, with faint milky sweetness and a black pepper burn on the back end. It flirts with cloying, but I can't say that it is.

Feel is very nicely executed - high carbonation supporting the acidity, giving it pop and movement. A faint dryness paired with a distinct slickness closes out the tactile part of this show.

Overall, very well done. I have not been a fan of Wiseacre in the past but they have targeted the coffee milk stout and hit it dead on. Is it the best one out there? Not even close. But it's one you need to check out, especially if you're down south. Good stuff right here. Highly recommended.

Pouring from a 12 oz. can into a wine glass. Pours out a very dark brown and has highlights of lighter brown. Formed a decent light tan crown but with very little retention and within a minute didn't even leave an outer ring around the glass. The smell is roasty coffee with some bitterness, some slight Java like hints and maybe even lactose like smells. The taste brings in that roast right up front and it stays. There isn't too much depth to this and I am wishing it had more of a pop. Carbonation might be a little low and I wish the body could be thicker. But then again it is a milk stout. Overall, it wasn't bad but I could do without having it again.

This pours black with a substantial tan head, some leaks around the edges, and heavy coffee notes on the nose. No discernible sweetness .

The taste is also all coffee, the base stout, and the slightest bit of sweet. The 5% ABV probably impacts the lack of sweet, but this is still a really enjoyable coffee stout, IMHO.

Surprising flavor and aroma. Lower ABV but what an flavorful tasting beer. I’m impressed. Again another Memphis Brewery has hit it right on the nose.

Pours jet black with a quickly dissapating head.
The aroma is dark roast coffee, chocolate, toasted bread crust and a light faint herbal hoppiness.
The flavor opens up sweet with dark chocolate with tons of roasty coffee. It's very centered on the roast, but there is a very pronounced sweetness that keeps it well balanced.
Overall, it's a very typical coffee stout, roasty and sweet with not much hoppiness.
