Minimal light brown head, opaque near black color. Plenty of roasted coffee, burned toast, toffee. Slick feel, sweet toasted malts with a floral bitter hops to balance. Easy drinking but to rich to drink many of. A nice nightcap brew.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from bottle into a tulip glass. Very small white head and minimal lacing. Taste is strongly coffee, with a bit of sweetness to start and bitterness to finish. Overall, it’s pretty drinkable, but doesn’t have any flavor or aroma that makes it stand out. A mildly good coffee stout when it’s all said and done.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It’s not the best looking stout I’ve ever had as it lacks that fulsome head my learned off-sider kiwianer had on his. However, it is a beautiful shade of tawny with ruby notes and so looks similar to port. The aroma is coffee all over. It’s difficult to achieve subtlety with such a strong component, but there are also notes of plum and cherry tobacco. The flavour reflects this without the coffee being utterly overpowering. There’s carbonation there that keeps things ticking along. For what is designated as a sweet stout, it isn’t overly sweet at all which suits me down to the ground. A likable fellow this one.

The head is robust, the body black. It smells darkmalty, coffee, bit mild, bit roasty. The taste is darkmalty, roasty, mild aroma coffee, OK

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a deep brown with a foamy brown head. Smells of coffee, chocolate and a bit of malt. Big dark-roasted coffee taste that overpowers everything else. Very little bitterness. Slightly sweet. Medium mouth, but not very oily. Coffee stouts have to strike a good balance to be noteworthy. This one is missing the stout.

I love coffee. I love beer. Lakefront made a highly drinkable beer that is both beer AND coffee!? Its a good beer, not the best coffee stout I have ever had, but a great effort. Really give it a try.

From notes: Poured hazy cola-brown with a 1-finger tan head. Pleasant aroma of roasted coffee. Full body, lightly oily. Flavor of black coffee, with a light burnt note in the finish.
