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.

Got in a BIF from jdell15. 12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 8/16/2017. Pours nearly opaque dark brown/black color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big nutty dark roasted coffee, milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, brown sugar, cream, and toasted dark/brown bread; with light notes of vanilla, smoke, herbal, and roast toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, coffee, and lactose notes; with great strength. Taste of big nutty dark roasted coffee, milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, brown sugar, cream, and toasted dark/brown bread; with light notes of vanilla, smoke, herbal, and roast toasted earthiness. Light herbal hop and roasted coffee bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of nutty coffee, milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, brown sugar, cream, toasted dark/brown bread, light vanilla/smoke, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, coffee, and lactose flavors; with a nice roasted bitter/sweet balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Minimal dryness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy, and slightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is good. Feels very thin for some reason, but not watery. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a very nice coffee milk stout. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, coffee, and lactose flavors; very smooth and easy to drink, with the very mild bitter finish. Very flavorful for the low ABV. Well rounded malt complexity for a stout, with really great levels of coffee presence. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.
