This was a great surprise. Not because I was surprised by the quality coming out of Lift Bridge but because we were having a chili tasting at my church and we had a selection of mainstream beers (Summitt) but then one of the guys at church brought this bottle to share. What a treat. There’s a really good balance in the flavors, with a little whisky apparent and a very subtle coffee (honestly, not really figuring into my thinking about the beer), and a richness that was wholly appropriate. Great finish, not noticeably sweet or anything. Definitely a winner. Bottle.

Bottle. Coffee and roasty with a milky sweet finish. Coffee is in great proportion. One of the better coffee stouts I've tried recently.

Smells like coffee, maybe a little boozy smell. Not really picking up the whiskey aging. Has a sweet taste to it, but also a slight whiskey flavor, but coffee is the main player here. Would buy/drink again. A really solid coffee stout.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, thick black pour with nice tan head, aroma brought notes of espresso, dark chocolate, hints of lactose, touch of grain, caramel, toffee in there as well, smells very nice.
