Flavor up front is all about the coffee, but minus the charred bitter notes. Additional toasty chocolate and caramel notes play out, and a late soft hop bitterness pulls it together for near perfection.

GTAEgeek (1202) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 29, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Black pour, with a small, tan head and good lacing. Big coffee aroma, milk chocolate, and light molasses. Very sweet flavor. Medium body, syrupy, and chalky. Overall, this is a pretty nice, sticky-sweet stout.

chinchill (1808) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Pint on tap at 5 Seasons Prado. Looks perfect: Essentially black in the glass with a large, creamy, dark tan head that leaves plenty of lacing and has good retention. Looks like a notro tap but is not. Aroma is rather faint for style, particularly the coffee. No burnt or off notes notes. Likewise for the flavor, although a solid coffee note comes through from the finish onwards. A bit sweet, but less so than average for milk stouts, probably due to the coffee. Outstanding mouthfeel: creamy smooth; medium-light body; perfect and very soft carbonation.

Dark cola brown. Head laces thickly. The coffee is obvious, but the milk stout part a little less so.

Shag (2603) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 2, 2012
This poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma contains some milk chocolate and espresso. The flavor has some sweetness up front and bitterness in da caboose. Some milk chocolate and coffee showing up. Some bitterness in the finish. Overall a very good stout.

Cybercat (3281) - Georgia, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Comes out of the tap a beautiful opaque sable with a thick tan head that leaves a lot of lacing. Strong aroma has a mocha overtone, quality coffee plus semi-sweet chocolate and hints of molasses and licorice. Scrumptious flavor has coffee, chocolate and molasses notes, not too sweet, very drinkable. Firm-bodied texture has a pleasant fizz and leaves a tingly mocha finish. Catch it while you can!

ChainGangGuy (4368) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 29, 2012
Appearance: Very dark brown body with a one-third inch of creamy, cafe-colored head. Nicely coating lace on the descent.

Smell: REV-elation smells of roast, cola nuts, bittersweet chocolate, pithy citrus, snappy florals, and scorched cream.

Taste: A start of dark chocolate along with roast, charred nuts, and some sugary caramel. Moderately sweet. Rather light astringency from the roasted grains, but theres also a notable hop presence here. Floral, citrusy hops. Medium-plus bitterness. Creamy lactose accents housed in the front half only. Final blip of sweetness, then a roasty, hoppy, still fairly bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Slight creaminess.

Overall: Stands out among other milk stout with its brighter-than-most hop character. Fairly good.
