3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
growler - pours pitch black with espresso-like foam and great lacing. Nose is dark chocolate and creamy-like sweetness. Flavor adds coffee. Flat and watery with sticky mouthfeel. Drinks like flat cola with coffee. Super easy to drink. slowly warms the belly. Mildly bitter and ever so lightly sweet.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample on tap at the Jackie-Os brewpub. Nice, thick foamy almost nitro-esque tan head. Black color, some groups of fine bubbles on the side of the glass. Nice, smooth lighter carbonation. Good creamy milk stout aroma in the nose, but it’s light. Light sweet taste. The coffee in this is subtle. Reminds me more of Left Hand’s milk stout, personally.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 ounce mason jar/mini-growler purchased from Party Town earlier this morning for $2.75. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a half inch light tan head that stayed around a little while. There’s a small amount of lacing. Aroma is mostly coffee, with there being some roasted malt and bittersweet chocolate also noticeable. Taste is pretty much the same as the aroma, but there’s the addition of some burnt/charred malt. The flavors do seem a little weaker in comparison to the aroma. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit creamy and coating and has moderate carbonation. It’s not one of the best coffee brews I’ve had, but it’s still solid and definitely worth trying. I’d buy this one again in the future.

Draft at Chappys thanks to Hannah. You know, pretty tasty and better than I honestly expected. You definitely know this is a coffee beer. Like a nice cup of coffee with a hint of vanilla and cream. Tasty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Poured dark brown color with a moderate frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy chocolate, wood and coffee with a small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a creamy texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy creamy coffee flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.
