COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Macchiato is made with pale, caramel, chocolate, and roasted malts. Oats and lactose are added to give the beer a more robust and sweeter taste. The sweetness of the lactose helps balance the bitterness of the brew just like in the coffee drink, which is our inspiration. The roasted malts give the beer its dark color as well as its intense flavor and aroma. Willamette hops are added to balance out the sweetness of the malts. Finally, PJ’s Coffee espresso dolce beans are added to the aging tank. This gives the beer a strong coffee flavor and aroma that compliments the existing flavors of the malt.

Bomber. Poured medium brown with a smoky tan head. The aroma picked up softer, sweeter coffee and chocoated notes with light roast.. accents of vanilla and graham cracker.. more coffee-ee on the back of the nose. The flavor found mostly sweet, roasted coffee with some sharper, more acrid coffee beans on the edges.. dry-roasted chocolate and vanilla accents. Medium-bodied with creamy carbonation.. a bit rough on the edges at times.. overall a very good beer.

taster at tailspin. had a little water still in the lines from freezing. but once I got this one down I was pleasantly surprise. poured a medium to dark brown color with off white head. the aroma was coffee and chocolate and the flavors were more sweet chocolate, black malts and coffee. this one from abita is a surprise and found it very enjoyable.

650 ml. Pour is ebony with a lasting spot and ring of foam. Big fragrance of espresso, scorched grain and a bit of semi-sweet chocolate. Taste is espresso, bitterish dark chocolate, toast, and some tart berry with cream. Near-medium body is slightly thin in a good fashion and mostly smooth with medium CO2. Has a nice balance between the acidic roast and coffee vs. the sweet components as well. This one is really strong with coffee, a little much so for me after 8-10 ounces worth. The coffee does taste of quality, but seems like the beer needs to be a bit bigger to stand up to it.

Strong dark roast coffee and dark chocolate nose. Mahogany, thick sticky tan head. Sweet coffee flavor. Medium body, creamy, soft carbonation, a little filmy. If you like coffee, like I do, you’ll enjoy this.

Appearance: pours with a very big tan head, the beer is black with very little maroon when held up to a bright light, head settles into a nice density Aroma: very strong coffee, dark roasted malt, Taste: black coffee, not very sweet, lots of coffee, has a moderate bitterness on the finish, can pick up some of the espresso Palate: pretty light mouthfeel, slight bitter aftertaste, average carbonation Overall: I like it for a good flavorful stout without the abv to match, good for breakfast, coffee is the dominant aspect ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had this at a beer festival and it was good. This time out the bottle Aroma is lighter. A little espresso. Note. Looks good. Dark brown. Nice head. Taste is really good. Probably one of the most balanced coffee beers to date. Not too heavy. Sweet but not too sweet. Palate is medium. Good. Overall a really good beer. Brings a lot to the table but keeps it balanced.

Macon, Ga - Macon Beverage Outlet- 22 oz bomber. Pours a viscous dark brown-black with a medium-thick mocha colored head that clings to the edge of the glass. Aroma has some milk chocolate accents, solid espresso notes, some hot peppers. Flavor is pretty solid with some light licorice notes, a touch of bittersweet unsweetened chocolate and some fresh espresso, nice pepper burn in the back end and a solid overall earthiness. Mouthfeel has a nice creaminess to it. Pretty decent,. One of the best I have had from Abita,

22oz bomber from Crossroads. Pours black with two fingers of frothy tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee rinds, milk chocolate, and a hint of vanilla cream. Coffee is very prominent. Taste mimics the nose. Aroma is slightly better then the taste, but overall when of the best beers I’ve had from Abita. Well done
