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.

Draft. It poured black with a tan head. The aroma and flavor is like a strong cup of black coffee. There is a slight creaminess on the finish.

On tap at the Hollander. Nearly black pour with a slight, tan head. Aroma is brewed coffee, dairy creamer, a little oatmeal. Flavor is similar. Thick but not super-heavy mouthfeel. One of Abita’s better offerings.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2015
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 character. Lovely.

With Z, pours a pitch black color with a small ephemeral head. Nose is very sweet coffee and mocha. Taste is sweet and sugary coffee with a nice balance of mocha. Finishes on the same sweet sugary notes with the nice balance of chocolate and vanilla. Quaff Score 7 / 10

Bomber. Pours brown with a dark brown head and aroma of coffee and chocolate. Taste is sweet, lots of coffee with chocolate and caramel as well as sugar and milk notes leading to a sweet, roasted coffee finish.

Fatehunter (1647) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Pours a finger of tan head on a black body. The aroma is coffee and milk with some wood. The taste is coffee and dark chocolate. The texture is smooth. A great brew.

22 oz from Sam’s 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 don’t 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.

kdm1984 (813) - Missouri, USA - MAY 28, 2015
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 Abita’s best.

EtTuCthulhu (1372) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAY 23, 2015
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.

Pours a dark brown color with a cream head. Chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, cream and caramel aroma and flavors. Medium body and carbonation with a chocolate and coffee finish.
