Black pour with a thin beige head. Hints of very old coffee grounds lead to big roasted malt and mild creaminess. Very muddled flavor profile. Light body for the style with a sweet finish.

Draft @ brew pub. Deep brown / black. Very small off white head gave lots of spiderweb lace. Nose is rich roasted notes and mild.coffee bean. This was a great batch. Medium in body with a lingering coffee bitterness. Flavor is the nose times 2. A good stout.

Pours a solid black color with a minimal tan head that dissipates quickly. Smells of coffee, roasted grains and earthy hops. Lots of acridic almost burnt coffee in the aroma. The taste backs up what my nose found, acridic burnt coffee mixed with a light roasted grain and slight astringency. Finish is rather dry with a lingering coffee bite. Thin body, light carbonation, slick acridic mouthfeel. I did not enjoy this stout. The base beer doesn’t have enough body to stand up to the thinning affects of adding coffee to a beer. Its also a bit boring and did I mention acridic.

Nice, nutty dark aroma. Motor oil pour in a nice growler. Tangy, grassy, dry, coffee bitter. Body has a thinner mouthfeel than the pour would suggest. This was cask - would be better carbonated. Thanks to LuckyDog for bringing this back from his NE trip.

on tap-pours brown head with black color. Aroma is coffee, dark malt. Taste is mild coffee, dark malt. Almost chewy, not my style usually, nice.

Black body with brown head that quickly fades. Aroma is medium sweet, coffee, some lactic acid. Taste is medium sweet, sugared coffee, mild roast. Coffee lingers pleasantly. Light-medium body with low carbonation.

Black, like a politician’s heart, with a faint coffee aroma. Not huge in the flavor department, but it did have a mild bitter aftertaste.

Black body with a nice tan head, deep coffee aroma, fizzy palate, bland watery ending. I liked it less as it warmed up, better cold

This is an odd beer to have as a summer seasonal, but whatevah. i sneaked a long drink of this out of TogBean's glass when she was too busy watching "Rocky 3" at Milly's Tavern. i was kinda pissed when the bartender changed it from "Futurama" to the crappi campiness of "Rocky". i digress...back to the beer. nice espresso aroma and a good dark color. the palate was a little watery and weak and the flavor was on the bland side. Milly's makes great beers...this is definately one of the weaker ones.

Had this one on draught at the tavern. It was reccommended to me by the bartender after my porter. I wasn't thrilled by it. If it had espresso in it I couldn't find it. I was far more entertained by Rocky III on the big TV. S'alright, nothing to write home about. Good dark color and thick tan head, thin in flavor, little of this little of that and no big flavors and no discernable secondary flavors. Not one to revisit for me.
