Picked this up at Discount Liquor on Oklahoma. Didn't think they had it at first, but it is sold single bottle in the cooler.
16 oz. bottle poured into a brandy snifter.

Awesome color...totally opaque and black with a great toffee-colored head. Really nice retention and lacing as well.

The aroma on this beer is bright coffee (obviously). As a coffee lover, this beer smells like heaven.

It tastes even better than it smells, with a bright coffee note up front, big roasted malt and chocolate in the middle, and a slight bitter finish. Overall, though, a very clean finish. I am a little surprised how well the coffee flavor balances out on this one. Doesn't have the burnt coffee astringency that some other coffee stouts have.

Super creamy and rich mouthfeel make this a go-to stout for me. Seek it out.

Appearance: Perfect. Dark mahogany brown with a thick and creamy brown head. Lacing is magnificent. Retention is at 3/8 of an inch for the entire life of the beer. Gorgeous.

Aroma: Sweet coffee liquor, espresso beans, vanilla syrup, cream, subtle sour fruit.

Taste: La Chouffe espresso liquor poured over strong coffee with a hint of cocoa powder, sweetening syrup, and just the slightest dash of a sour, acidic compound.

Mouthfeel: Luscious, creamy, blanketing, soft and comforting. Light carbonation, rich thick body. Fantastic.

Drinkability: Flawless. Sessionable.

One of the best stouts I’ve had from a Wisconsin brewery. Perhaps the best. Compares to Speedway in many ways.

Enjoyed a pint at the Brewery's pub, in Green Bay. Served cold (just right...) in a pint clear glass beer challice

A) Rich dark chocolate. Carbonation rises all around the glass naturally in the true stout style. Ample tan head settles nicely and lasts throughout the pour

S) Roasted fine coffees, raisins, sweet pastry

T) Malty sweet but just right (hint) bitter too. Smoked peat, subtle spice

M) Creamy smooth, medium body, balanced

D) Too many brewers produce stouts by the pound. A meal in a glass? Hardly -- it's a beer... or rather an ale.
An excellent effort. A truly easy drinking stout. Going to be tough to find here in Chicago,but worth a look.

Pours almost black as night with a one finger tan head. Consistent lacing that stays on glass. Smells just like a black coffee. Tastes as good as it smells and looks. Coffee right up front with a slight after taste of chocolate. Perfect carbonation and consistency . Not a heavy stout. Can certainly drink more than one. Just a great beer. Glad I tried and will buy more.

Served in a Samuel Adams glass I was just given today.

Appearance: More than ample head, had to quit my pour and start sipping because it was about to overflow We're talking a good 2 inches. The head fades rather quickly, revealing an impressive amount of thick, clumpy lacing.

Smell: Coffee is there but not overt. Smells more like a porter.

Taste: Same as the smell. Coffee is subtle, taste is more along the lines of a porter.

Mouthfeel: I like it. I was expecting something weak from the other reviews I read, but it works for me.

Overall: The first one was good enough that I felt inspired to have a second and write a review. Not the season to fully appreciate this beer, but I'm looking forward to having one of these on a cold January evening.

I ordered this to go with dessert at Hinterland in Milwaukee. Served in a tall narrow glass. Black in color with a creamy tan head. Reminded me a lot at first glance of how a Guinness or Beamish head appears. After taking a sip, it's no doubt that this is from a nitro tap. Aroma of coffee and roasted malt on the nose. The full-bodied mouthfeel is silky smooth, which I attribute to the nitrogen. Amazing flavor. Dark malt and roasted coffee are most noticeable in the flavor. Coffee though is not overpowering or bitter at all. Creaminess almost gives it a nice creamed coffee taste also. Long finish has a bit of a dryness to it.

One of the best coffee stouts I have ever tried. So smooth and tasty. Perfect beer to replace coffee with during dessert at the restaurant.

I enjoyed this beer at first as part of the 3 - 6 0z tasting flite at the brewery's new Milwuakee location and then on it's own in a pint glass.

Appearance: Looked fantastic. Dark brown with a thick, creamy brown head.

Smell: Sweet coffee and roasted malt.

Taste: Nice coffee flavor with a hint of chocolate.

Mouthfeel: Very nice and smooth. Everything I hoped it would be.

Drinkability: Excellent. This is definitely a god session beer for me.

The best of the bunch of the 7 beers they had on tap.

Wow...had this on tap at Dugan's in the West Loop, Chicago.

Appearance: Poured on nitro-tap. Cascaded beautifully. One of the best pours of a stout I've seen in quite some time.

Smell - Def get the Luna Coffee smell after I let the beer settle.

Taste - Very nice coffee flavor. Not over powering, but not lacking in flavor like some stouts.

Mouthfeel - Super smooth. Probably b/c of the nitro pour. Almost tastes silky.

Overall - I could drink this stout all day long.

If you haven't tried this one, go for it.
