COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A limited release from Atlantic Brewing celebrating Maineís number one spirit. We brewed a stout using milk sugar in addition to barley malts. We then added fresh roasted coffee from our local roaster, Crooked Porch Coffee of Bar Harbor, Maine. Finally, a touch of natural Madagascar vanilla yields a gentle sweetness and creaminess to the brew.

Bottle, best before 9/11/15, from Downtown Wine and Spirits, drunk 9/1/15.
Quite a lovely pour, being a magenta-mahogany, nicely bright and with a light tan head that recedes quickly to cover/ring.
This is quite the intriguing beer, all told. What it dosent have is a bunch of underfermented, sticky, syrupy sugars or any booziness. Even the lactose is fermented out, leaving just a touch of tartness/sourness behind. The roast/coffee character is medium-light, having no old/beany/stale notes, nor any heavy dominace of the palate. Carbonation seems appropriate and the body, while somewhat watery, is soft enough and glides down fairly easily. Quite drinkabl, but what Iíve been building to here, is that the vanilla is just out-of-control. Not that itís syrupy-sweet or artificial, itís not at all; the actual vanilla flavor is quite enjoyable and real, but itís just too much. Astringent and dominant, it takes over the beer, especially with warming, as one should allow a stout to do. At the end of the glass itís almost all I smell and taste.

12oz bottle. Pours a really dark brown almost black with a creamy thick tan head. Vanilla and coffee notes throughout. But overall the coffee flavor seemed a bit off, low some low rent Maxwell House and the palate was a bit on the watery side.

Ktwse (2845) - SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2015
Pours clear dark brown with low light tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, light coffee and roasted malt. Taste is milk chocolate and vanilla sweet with light roasty finish. (Too) light body yet smooth with soft carbonation.

On tap in Bar Harbor. Nicely balanced stout. Plenty of coffee nose and tongue. Great malt and a good little shot of vanilla creaminess. Fun beer.

Whoa! Kind of a 1 trick pony in being all coffee but tasty nevertheless! Huge roasted coffee aroma. Very nice nearly black pour w/ a tan head & a bit of lacing. Decent mouthfeel & overall a strong offering! Must try for coffee lovers.

This one is super creamy, milky and toasted malt flavor. Black with a fine thin cream head. Had on nitro. Very refreshing and smells like roasted malt ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz. bottle purchased at the Beer Store, Nashua. Deeper brown/ black color. Aroma is a nice mix of vanilla, roasted malts and light coffee. Real nice.

The flavor starts again with the vanilla and turns into the coffee on the backside. The bitterness is in the form of coffee. The body is medium with a nice creamy texture and a nice smooth velvet feel. Really nice sweet stout. Recommend on a fresh bottle or draft.

Poured from bottle thanks Airforcehops. Pours dark chocolate color with a nice brown head. Aromas of caramel coffee and chocolate. A smooth tasting beer with with the right amount of smoke, coffee and chocolate. This would be real nice bourbon aged.
