3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at World of Beer. Good creamy off white head with tons of lacing. Strong coffee aroma. A little thin for a milk stout. Strong coffee flavors up front with a sweet milky finish. Overall a solid brew. I would like more coffee bitterness to be present.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Whole Foods Schaumburg. Dark brown pour that’s seemingly still in the glass. Frothy khaki head reduces to a tapioca collar. Very faint smoky coffee roast fragrance. Taste is a little bit of a let down after reading the description. You have to hold the beer in your mouth for a few seconds before you taste cold brewed coffee. Other than that, it’s a thin, mildly roasty and mildly hoppy beer. Clean finish and I probably would’ve guessed dark lager in a blind taste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster. Looks good; a translucent dark cola with foamy light beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt and coffee roast with what seems to be a hint of pepper. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not getting much of the lactose in this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap sample at CBWF 2014. Poured a black color with an average to large frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy dark coffee and milk chocolate malt aroma. Medium to heavy dark chocolate sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet coffee finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a good rich beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taster on tap at Cincinnati Winter Beer Fest (CWBF) 2014. Black color. Bigger tan head. Really nice nose... Big coffee, creme. Lighter body than I expect from the nose. No chewiness. Bigger bitter taste, light sweet. A lot of that coffee bitterness in the taste of this, but I love the aroma. Impressive coffee stout, in how big the coffee aroma is. Body is a little lacking, though, as well as the overall balance.
