On tap @ The Beer Junction. Nitro. High drinkability. Very nice, almost comforting, espresso taste with a solid stout to back it up. Not an overwhelming bitter taste, yet enough to compliment the robust malt sweetness and coffee finish. Fantabox

On tap at MKT. Right off the bat I dig this. Espresso, hazelnut, perfect sweetness, milkish, medium roast, light fruit, smooth chocolate, creamy feel and bitterness that you forget about. Quick review might not do this justice.

Lizardking3 (172) - Springfield, Oregon, USA - APR 22, 2015
Pours dark black with creamy tan head. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, licorice root, vanilla. Taste is massively coffee all around, as if the grounds were in your mouth. Chocolate and root beer in the middle of the mouth, with vanilla and hop finish. This is good, but for a stout with lactose, it definitely lacks a velvety thick mouthfeel, and is a bit light on the booziness.

Tonkun (975) - New Jersey, USA - APR 18, 2015
Tap. Dark cola pour with a nice off white head. Coffee, chocolate, oat, raisin, licorise. Stronger than expected carbonation making this refreshing. Medium body. Coffee is there but is more milk coffee. Nice effort

UXO (650) - CANADA - APR 18, 2015
Pours crystal clear (flashlight confirmed) ruby brown with one fat finger of medium dense beige head diminishing quickly to a thin skim, moderate lacing. (4/5) Nose is strong coffee, lactose sweet, mild dark roasty malt, light dark fruit. (8/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Medium body tending a little to watery, slightly creamy texture, low carbonation, mildly bitter finish. (3/5) Not a bad coffee milk stout, but fairly pedestrian. Definitely smells better than it tastes, and clearly gets a lot of that smell from the added espresso, instead of from the grain bill. Despite the darkness and the presence of some roasted malts, Iím somewhat surprisingly getting essentially no chocolate at all, and the body tends to the thin and watery. I donít say this often, but it could actually use a little more sweetness - the ďmilkĒ (lactose) sweetness usually brings more creaminess, and that might help the slightly watery body. On the up side, neither the coffee nor the dark malt comes through as harsh. Pleasant, without being all that exciting. (14/20)

stantheman (693) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 4, 2015
Small bottle at Hops Northwest in New Westminster. A black beer with moderate tan head and a heavy but pleasant coffee nose. In the mouth itís smooth, mellow with coffee flavours predominating. Very nice. 3.8.

Reimer96 (1446) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 4, 2015
Pours an almost opaque black with a frothy brown head. Aroma of chocolate, Cocoa, espresso, coffee, sweet chocolate and creamy latte. Taste is roasted malts, cocoa, sweet lactose, coffee and a nice sharp bitterness from the expresso on the finish but never harsh. Excellent milk stout with added espresso... Great balance.
