The reviews below are pretty spot on. It smells like a coffee shop as soon as the can is opened. Pours a pitch black with medium head. The smell is just outstanding. I don't think that I have had a coffee stout or beer in general with this much coffee aroma. It tastes as good as it smells. A little sweeter because of the lactose. Thin body makes this an easy drinker as well. This may be my favorite coffee stout I have ever had. I was blown away!

Dark brownish black with an ample layer of creamy tan foam. Delicate drippy lacing all around the glass.

Huge roasty coffee aroma, rich and full bodied.
Taste is nice but not quite as bold. Dry and roasty.

Light bodied and drinkable. Nice coffee stout, could use a little more body but smells and tastes great.

on draft at the Flying Saucer in Memphis

damn this beer smells good - a ton of coffee aroma - and good flavor in the taste as well - not too roasty or dry.

A perfect blend of creamy milky chocolatey coffee goodness! Definitely should get this beer if you see it somewhere!

This is hands down the best stout I've ever had. This beer has so much coffee aroma & flavor you'll think it's your morning coffee! A remarkably clean and bright finish with only a lingering sweetness.

Little body; this puppy's as thin as Christian Bale in The Machinist! No trace of hops and only a hint of toasted malt. The coffee flavor is pleasant
and may add a false sense of body. If you hear "stout"and think Guiness, well, ah, not so much; this is a milk stout, though, so you shouldn't expect it to resemble "Arthur's". If it weren't so thin, even for a milk stout, this could be a very nice product. As it is, it's pretty meh.

On tap at Sigler's in Tennessee.
Nice looking with a black body and a tan head that soon reduces to a ring and leaves rather minimal lacing.

Lightly sweet up front but excellent bitter-sweet balance. Excellent coffee aroma and flavor. Smooth medium body. Medium-light carbonation.

Overall: excellent use of coffee!

12 ounce can poured into a snifter.

Frothy khaki head forms a couple fingers thick, but dissipates fairly quickly. Pitch-black body beneath. No complaints from me on this account. 4.5

Huge espresso aroma on the nose. Potent, roasted, a tad sweet with caramel and cream and a bit of spiciness. 4

The coffee flavor on the tongue is a bit stale, like something a few days old. It's followed by cream and sweetness that's almost sugar-like. It starts tasting pretty true to a coffee with milk and a couple of sugars. After a few more drinks, it occurs to me the coffee flavor is also a tad thin and/or watered down. Not nearly as robust in flavor as I want my coffee or my beer with coffee. 3.25

It's light and easy-drinking, so in that regard, it's got something going on. However, the light body here does border on watery as I mentioned, something that can't quite win me over. The carbonation is low to medium and that really aids the drinkability and the malt-feel has its moments. 3.5

I think freshness may be a big factor with this brew, because the coffee flavor here just feels watered-down and stale. I'd love to try fresh at the source because I imagine this would be tasty in that form and really allow for multiple pours.
