3.82/5  rDev -6.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

I don't see any ABV or date listed on the can.

Appearance: The body is black under a very thin cream colored film of a head. the head barely forms and instantly goes away. The surface of the head was very smooth when it was around. No retention but the ring of foam left in the glass does leave some spotty lacing.

Aroma: It smells like coffee grounds.

Taste: It tastes just like I'm drinking an iced coffee. I am not getting any of the milk stout sweetness or any character from the grains. It really doesn't taste like a beer at all, but it has outstanding coffee flavor.

Mouthfeel: The body is light and the texture is smooth with a light chalky finish. It is effortlessly drinkable.

Overall: I'm not entirely convinced that this is even a beer at all. It tastes just like coffee. For coffee beer drinkers I would definitely recommend it if you don't mind it not tasting like beer. It would be the perfect beer to just sit outside with and enjoy the day. I would drink it again.

Smell is of dark coffee with just cream. Pour is very flat and dark black. Taste is good with coffee and roasted stout. Mouthfeel is very lacking for a milk stout. No creaminess with no carbonation.

Overall great flavors for a coffee milk stout but lacking most of its carbonation making it fall flat

Pours rather thick for the style and looks a deep midnight opaque black in the glass. Coffee comes through up front with a sweet backbone. Coffee is definitely present but mixes with the roasted notes of the base beer to kind of get lost. Once you taste it, you kind of lose the coffee distincively and it is definitely minutes by the sweet nature of the beer. Kind of reminds you of a cafe con leche. Feels silky smooth going down with a good amount of body especially for the style; kind of thick in the best possible way. Overall a great light stout that could use a little bit more coffee presence.
