Wonderfully smooth, there's a lot of complexity to it that I've been hard pressed to find in other milk or coffee stouts. There are notes of caramel and licorice and it feels a bit more bitter and less overly sweet than say Left Hand's Milk Stout, I guess they went light on the lactose.

Solid espresso/ coffee aroma. Getting coffee, cream and roasted malt but very muted. Medium to thin feel. A bit of bitterness on the finish. Eh, I want the flavors to punch through a bit more.

Pretty standard - espresso isn’t very distinct and doesn’t pack much of a punch but isn’t off in any way or offensive, easy drinking desert beer no fuss no muss

No bottling date on bottle.
Look: Pours dark cola brown. I achieve about 3 fingers width of a tan head from a simple pour. Alot of floaters in this brew.
Smell: Roasted malts, espresso coffee, burnt sugar, chocolate, and maybe some hints of vanilla and a pecan or peanut nuttiness. There is a sweet aspect to the smell which is no doubt due to the lactose.
Taste: Follows the nose for the most part. Roasted malts and chocolate are on the front end, with a slight sweet finish. There is a residual nutty/roasty taste in my mouth, but it is pleasant. As it warms, the coffee and chocolate really blends nicely, with a sweet sugary milk finish.
Feel: Moderately carbonated and too thin for my liking, but does have smooth mouthfeel.
Overall: This is a tasty offering by elysian. It is low abv, and very easy to drink. I am grateful to have tried, and think it is worth a "shot." Cheers!

This beer pours a dark black with a moderate head. The aroma is sweet with notes of milk chocolate, milk, brown sugar, and coffee. The flavor is soft and sweet, with strong notes of milk, milk chocolate, brown sugar, and caramel. The mouthfeel is quite light and slightly thin, with minimal carbonation. Overall the flavors are nice, but a bit too sweet and a bit too light for my tastes.
