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.
