Deep dark brown pour with a creamy white head. The nose is pretty
intense. Bitter cocoa and coffee with a nice roasty malt character on
the back. Tasty brew really. Rich and chewy. A little bit of salty

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz from Samís Bottle Shop for 5 bucks. Pours black with a light brown head. Aroma is milk and coffee; about what you would expect. A good balance between the two. Taste is slightly sweet and more leaning toward the coffee flavor than milk flavor. I donít get much chocolate or other malt flavors out of this one though. Body is slightly thick, not too heavy though. Average carbonation. Overall quite a nice stout.

Coffee aroma with milk and oats. Sweet to start, then roast, coffee, ash. Quite tasty. Lighter bodied. Had on tap at the Gaslight in Joplin. Really enjoyed; one of Abitaís best.

This beer pours black with a small khaki head. The aroma blends coffee, caramel malts, vanilla, and roasted malts, and the taste is mildly bitter, mildly sweet, and slightly umami with a sweet coffee finish. The palate has an oily and thin texture, medium body, and a soft carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Opaque dark brown; big chocolate milk colored head. Pleasant aromas of roasted coffee beans and chocolate. If I were blindfolded and asked to smell this Iím not at all sure Iíd guess "beer." The flavors replicate the aromas except that something in the smell led me to expect "sweet" and this isnít--it is dry and full-bodied with a smooth, creamy texture. Very well balanced. Not for tea drinkers. Like this quite a bit and will look for it again.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Deep coffee brown color with a load of khaki head, dissipating slowly and leaving lace. Huge roasty, coffee aroma, some milk chocolate, cola. The flavor follows the aroma, not as sweet as I had presumed. It definitely tastes like bittersweet, creamy espresso with a bit of condensed milk. Adequate carbonation leading to a creamy mouthfeel. It finishes with a touch of lactic sweetness. Full-medium bodied. Itís quite nice.
