COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
*This beer contains both caffeine and lactose* Starting with a rich sweet stout base, we added both lactose to the kettle and 20 lbs. of locally roasted Fatboy’s coffee to the fermenter. The result is an aroma that is brimming with java and chocolate, an incredibly full, almost milkshake, mouthfeel and a creamy sweet finish.

evergreen0199 (1810) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2013
Cask at GBBF 2013, Olympia, London. A black coloured pour with a medium beige head on top. Coffee, Roasty, coffee aroma. Tastes of rich bitter coffee, some caramel and a slight sweetness. It is clearly a decent stout but probably a bit too rich for me.

caesar (4710) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2013
Gravity @ GBBF, small sample. Dark color, short head. Aroma is heavy of coffee, roasted, earthy, chocolate. Taste is mostly bitter coffee, but with some milk chocolate and a hint of biscuit. Slight sweetness keeps it away from being too dry. Too much coffee in the aroma for me actually, although it is pretty nicely balanced for the amount of coffee in combination with the relatively low abv.

thebeertourist (4648) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 14, 2013
On tap at Gbbf 2013. Black with a medium capuccino head. Intense roasted coffee aroma with quite a bit of acidity. Only slightly moderated by hints of sweet caramel in the mouth. I’d say this is a great beer geek breakfast stout.

Cask at gbbf 2013. Opaque black caramel with a loose persistent light tan head. Aroma is dry roast coffee with some pepper. Flavour is initially choc and roast. Finish is more spicy pepper with some veg. Actually works very well on cask. Pretty drinkable. Long duration of Roasty and choc. Very pleasant.
