Based on a sweet stout recipe and enriched with cold Toddy-extracted Organic Colombian Supremo and Espresso Roasted coffee. Exclusively poured on Nitrogen gas lines for a silky texture with a pillowy white head. The result is a rich, creamy stout with hearty roasted coffee flavor and a quick finish. When three fourths of a glass of our coffee milk stout sits, cascading, waiting for the last two inches of black velvet sexy loveliness to top it off, creating the bright white fluffy head….all you can do is take a deep breath and concentrate on patience, knowing that from the first clean robust sip to the last drop, Black Hog Brewing Co. coffee milk stout always hits the mark.

Canned September 19, 2019. Nice looking beer that pours the expected deep brown / black, with a respectable tan colored head that receded to a spotty cap and persistent ring. Nose has plenty of lactose, with any hint of coffee or roast deep in the background.

Ironically, this is reversed on the tongue. Plenty of coffee and very little sweetness except for a small amount on the finish. Body is a hair lighter than medium.

Overall, it's solid, but unspectacular. That said, this is the kind of beer you enjoy when you are hanging out with friend more than one you slowly sip and savor, and there's a definite need for beers like this in the world.

Poured from a can into a pint glass.

Appearance: Dark brown, slightly translucent. Fluffy khaki head.

Smell: Pretty mild. Sweet and oaty with a bit of hops. No coffee.

Taste: Blonde roast coffee with some milk added. Not very dark and roasty -- more like toasted bread. Some malt sweetness. Good and inoffensive, but just a little underpowering.

Feel: Smooth and creamy, with light carbonation. Dry on the back of the tongue.

Fine mid-pack offer, plenty of flavor for a 5.5%.
a) Mixed, weak head despite the humorous advice to pour hard, but does look and lace nicely despite fast fade tan head.
s) aroma offers abundant coffee, roasted malts, chocolate, lots of lactose and background hops. But ample.
t) Complex but sweet. First a strong BLACK coffee followed by lactose creaminess on a base of roasty malt character, all backed by a hop finish.
f) Thiner but crisper than anticipated, dry clean finish.
o) Solid contender with more than most.

Disappointing head, poured straight in, the head is thick but fades quickly. The color is awesome. Pleasing aroma though just slightly coffee. Nicely rounded flavor, not too sweet, coffee is too subtle but the beer has no off flavor and good amount of hops. Very good cream texture. Taste lingers. A second glass would be welcomed.

Solid black color. Medium light carbonation with an above average body. Slight creamy oily feel
Aroma is roasted malt, black coffee, char. Taste follows the aroma with black coffee and roasted malt being out front
Overall, great aroma and very good body and taste as well
