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.

12oz bottle. very dark with small tan head. As expected nice espresso coffee aroma. Some chocolate but I have had some "coffee" or "chocolate" flavored stouts that were like drinking syrup. This beer has a nice balance that is creamy, flavorful, and rich that lingers in the aftertaste.

12oz bottle. Poured out an opaque, dark, dark brown color with a small, tan head of foam. It smelled of espresso, chocolate and toasted caramel. Sweet chocolate with some rich, roasted coffee flavor.

L) Pours a dark, roasty brown with a creamy khaki head. Some lacing is present.

S) The nose is latte-like in that it is dominated by coffee and to an extent, the lactose. There is almost a french vanilla or caramel macchiato-like sweetness in the nose as well, it is very inviting.

T) The taste is coffee forward, and the dark roast notes linger after everything else. It is quite sweet, but I would not say cloyingly sweet, it does come across as a french vanilla creamer type note, which is incredibly pleasant.

F) The mouthfeel is very creamy, and the beer coats the mouth. It does have a medium carbonation that works well for the style.

O) This is great across the board. I had this one for breakfast with a couple eggs and chocolate covered cranberries. An easy 6-pack recommendation to coffee lovers.
