Bottle… Pours murky and dark brown with a small, creamy, khaki head. The bouquet is of coffee and dark chocolate – mocha. Full-bodied and velvety with tingly carbonation. Acrid, bittersweet chocolate and coffee flavor. Nice, hearty, carbonaceous finish that dries out just a touch.

Aroma is heavy coffee beans and that’s about it. Very heavy; pleasant enough but rather one-note. The appearance is dark, opaque brown, almost black. Not much head. The flavor is bitter iced coffee on the first swallow. Roasted with a sweetish raisin finish. Dry, dry malts. Dates and plums. Maple as my sister pointed out. The palate is smooth and buttery, with a grainy finish. Warm it up for maximum enjoyment. Roasted as hell and dark. Too much with the iced coffee, but very drinkable.

Courtesy of exiled. Black color/ tan head. Big medium roasted coffee, chocolate aromas. rich, full mouthfeel. Good lightly sweet chocolate, coffee, dark roasted malty flavors. nicely bitter finish.

Thanks to exiled for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is strong coffee and vanilla. The flavor is roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. This is an excellent sweet stout that I hopefully will get to try again.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2010
Bottle purchased at Chucks in Chagrin Falls. Wow, this beer is certainly well defined: coffee flavored strong milk stout. Yep. All that is in here, very simply. Flavor is heavy of green coffee and lactose, flavor comes along quite the same. Very crisp at first, then mellows nicely like a milk stout should.
