Dark brown pour with a creamy brwon head. Aroma is a bit light, but you get some coffee, roast, vanilla, and some fudgy notes. Flavor is sweet with lots of coffee and vanilla, great mouthfeel. Oily and delicious.

Purchased at West Lakeview Liquors in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at night prepping for a move which results in stress eating and drinking a little too much. This stuff is awesome! Batch #118. Appearance is a creamy pitch black with a very rich and frothy tan head. Aroma is fantastic with huge vanilla, chocolate notes, as well as a slight bitterness of coffee and a slight abrasiveness of cocoa. Taste is fantastic, super easy to drink and not too sweet, the cocoa nibs add an interesting complexity, mixes very well with the vanilla and coffee. Would happily enjoy again!

Strong coffee flavor in a sweet stout. I thoroughly enjoyed this beer. Heavy but not syrupy.

Botella de 65 cl en el lupulo. 11-12-13. Alucinante milk stout. Color negro intenso con poca espuma, que desaparece del todo a mitad de vaso (hay que echarla a lo alto), de color algo oscuro. Cuerpo ligero - medio. Aromas a lactosa cl principio seguido de cacao y mucho café. Sabor al principio también a lactosa, (una taza de café con leche bien bien cargado de café) seguido de ligero cacao y abundante café torrefacto. Ligero regusto amargo verde y fresco al final. Según va calentando va perdiendo algo de sabor volviendose algo más pastosa y maltosa, dominando el sabor torrefacto. Muy muy recomendable y necesaria repetir, esta ya es la segunda que me endiño una y cada vez que se repite parece que sabe mejor.

I love Jones Dog and the Coffee version adds to an already delicious beer. A distinct but mild coffee flavor and adds just a hint of a kick to the sweetness of the original.

Bottle… This beer rocks!… Murky, dark brown ale with no head. The nose is a luxuriant intermingling of milk chocolate, fudge and toasted almonds and pistachios with hints of espresso and vanilla. Full-bodied and absolutely velvety with gentle carbonation. The flavor is a decadent swirl of caramel, vanilla, fudge and espresso. Finishes sweet and chocolaty. Kudos to KickInChalice for shipping this bottle of awesome stuff my way!

22oz bomber at Madvikes. Batch 9. More oily head than the Jones Dog. Really intense coffee aroma, quite nice. Intense coffee, vanilla flavors. Lots of coffee soaked vanilla in the aftertaste. Sweet, a fantastic dessert beer. Intense flavor, smooth delicate body. Great.

Wow. Shitty label, good beer. Chocolate (after-taste). Coffee (aroma). A stout plus plus. Wow.

Draft at Stoutfest. This was an oddball. Aged with Black Cat Espresso, iirc? Pours the deep black/tan head of it’s brother. Creamy looking. Nose is vanilla and cocoa forward, more roast, less coffee than expected, oddly. The coffee seems to have enhanced the cocoa notes. On tasting, mildly sweet with a nice level of roast and vanilla. The cocoa really pops with this one in the best way. Quite a bit better than Jones Dog for me.

Bottle. Aroma is top notch. Super chocolate smell that is very warm and inviting. An awesome milk stout smell. The taste does not disappoint either. Less chocolate than I wanted to have. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
