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!

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.

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.

Had this on tap at Puckett’s Grocery and Restaurant on the square in Columbia, TN. A really good Coffee Stout that is black as night. Not as full-bodied as a regular stout and not as sweet as a milk stout. Went really good with a BBQ brisket sandwich. I would definitely drink this beer again.

It's a great beer for what it is. People have to remember it's a 6.2 abv cap for breweries in Tennessee unless you go through the hoops to get another license. This is an easy drinker that has great coffee and sweet tones throughout it. Yes, it is a bit thin for a stout, but it's a "session" style stout to meet Tennessee's laws. Plus, it's a great slammer for the stout heads that still drink stouts and porters in 100 degree heat.

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.

This delivers exactly as advertised. Nose is like sticking your face in a freshly milled coffee bean bag. Taste is what you would think. A bit thin, but I'm really just looking for knocks. Not deserving of a sub 90 rating. Amazing coffee milk stout.

This is the most perfect coffee beer I have ever had. It's light, but tastes just like an iced coffee with cream and sugar. They seriously nailed this beer and I have never tasted a beer that tastes just like iced coffee. It's insane. Very drinkable at 5% and just perfect. It's all I want to drink.

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

12 oz can...no canning dat that I can make any sense of

Pours very dark brown, near black, dark mocha frothy cap, leaving a nice looking fine bubble film, low sheeting and delicate fields of lacing.

A wave of cafe au lait on the nose....ce

Coffee infused stout, rich, malty, flavorful, complex...well done....dominated by waves of fr she coffee, milk chocolate and again I'm getting cafe au lait notes...well worth a try.

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!
