Pour is dark black at the brewery, thin tan head. Aroma brought big notes of espresso, coffee beans, some nice smoke and roast. Big flavor with nice coffee, caramel, roast and smoke, hints of earth as well, finished fairly creamy but a bit fizzy. Nicely done.

Was skeptical about this, as I tend not to like my coffee stouts too sweet - this pulls it off, though - creamy body, with light roasted malt to compliment the coffee - a touch of bitter black malt balances the lactose - sort of tastes like chocolate covered espresso beans - the coffee is present, but not overpowering, and the acidity from the beans is practically non-existent - they pack quite a bit of flavor into such "small" beer.

On tap @ the brewery on 4/07/11. What a smooth, delicious treat! Poured dark black with a medium brown head. Smelled like a dream--milk chocolate, creamy milk, some espresso grounds, and it all kinda came together into a singular "deliciousness" that can only come with the combination of espresso and milk stout. Flavor was spot on too. Deep roasted stout with a healthy dose of chocolate milk, with a sneaky espresso bang at the end. Would have been nice for the espresso to be present throughout, but maybe I just like coffee too much. This was an awesome beer, and at only 4.3% it’s the best session stout I’ve ever had, maybe best session period. Lots of flavor for not much ABV. Breweries could learn from this one.
