Another Elysian brew that opens up with a beautiful pour. This thing smells heavenly too, assuming you are a coffee aficionado as well. The taste lives up to the smell and the mouth feel is so creamy I feel like I am having my morning mocha. It's too much for a night of drinking, but absolutely perfect as an after dinner treat.

Big roasted malt flavor. Espresso really comes through.

Tasted really thin. I was hoping for something more robust.

This poured an opaque dark black with a thin tan head that disappeared fairly quickly. There is definitely roasted espresso, dark chocolate and a bit of bread on the nose. At first I don't get much flavour but there is that espresso and chocolate in the aftertaste that lingers for a short time. Funny enough that as it warms up the flavour profile does change a bit almost reminding me of a cold Double Double from your local coffee shop. The carbonation balances the mouthfeel down a notch to a high medium. I think this one of those beers that would benefit as a nitro just to smooth it out a bit more.

I'm not much of a fan of darker beers, I read about milk stouts and was interested so I went out and got a bottle of this. Confirmed my opinion on the brew
