Nice hit of coffee up-front that then mingles with the sweet-ish roast of the finish. Very impressive and delicious, especially considering that this is much lower abv than most coffee stouts these days. I don't miss the higher gravity at all. Bravo, Elysian!

This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
A nice looking three finger off white/tan foamy head hung around for a good minute and a half before gently dieing into the beer. Light foamy lacing clung but eventually fell into the beer.
The smell had a really nice sweet to roasty cocoa mixing well with the espresso, nice and milky thick, slightly creamy.
The taste was once again roasty and sweet speckling itself in and out of creamy cocoa and the espresso. A nice gentle roasty sweet espresso aftertaste leads to a wet finish.
The mouthfeel was about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed to be a bit under for me, but wasn't anything bad.
Overall, in my opinion, this is a pretty sessionable millk/sweet stout. She does everything that Elysian wanted. Good job guys!
