12oz bottle pours with a nice dark body that supports a light mocha colored head. The aroma offers up lots of rich coffee notes as well as earthy coffee, dark roasted malts and a bit of spicy black licorice. The taste delivers some of the same notes with plenty of thick smooth rich coffee notes, some sweet malts, a mild lactose sort of feel and then some modest burnt malts to roasty maltiness. This has loads of dark roasted coffee goodness balanced by some earthiness and malt sweetness. Pretty nice.

Bottle; Pour is dark brown, with a two fingered, fine bubbled khaki head into this glass. It retains fairly well, with sticky lacing presence into this glass. The nose is roasted coffee bean, chocolate cake, moving to lactose sugar and a hint of brown sugar. This is a sweet stout, and itís quite nice. I mean , within the constraints of this box of beer camp. Iím not sure if Iíd give it the top title though - I think that belongs to the bells iteration. The flavor profile is creamy, lactose sugar, moving to roasted coffee bean , and itís quite nice actually. There is more cake presence, moving to brown sugar and light bittering - the mouthfeel is somewhat robust for the box, at least (the majority of the beers were on the thin side) - Overall . A nice attempt at the style.

12oz bottle. Chunky brown black body with a steady beige/tan head. Thick, sweet chocolate coffee, specialty malt aroma. One solid Coffee Milk Stout. Nails it. One of the better dark beers Iíve had lately. Huge flavors, but never overbearing, great mouthfeel. Excellent.

Bottle from Beer Camp Across America pack into snifter glass, opaque brown with dark tan head. Aroma of coffee, cream, chocolate and roasted malt. Taste adds notes of espresso, brown sugar, light char, faint vanilla and earthy hop bitterness. Medium-heavy body, low-moderate carbonation, creamy, rich with coffee roast finish. This is a beer latte, very delicious.

12 oz. bottle shared by David - thanks again, David! Pours a deep coffee brown with some amber highlights around the edges and a small beige head. Both coffee and milky sweetness are immediately apparent, though the sweetness gives way more to the coffee as it warms. Chocolate, cream, roast. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, semi-roasty mouthfeel. Good coffee milk stout.

Pours a brownish-black color with a medium thick beige head that diminishes gradually to a film. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted coffee, chocolate and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of black coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. The finish is sweet with a mocha aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

On tap at Beer Camp Across America southeast. Pours a deep brownish black on tap with thick tan head that leaves good lace. Aroma of nice coffee and roast up front, a solid milky sweet chocolate finish. Taste follows, rich and smooth. Good carbonation, creamy mouth, very nice. This may have been my favorite of the bunch.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2015 Although I think this drinks more like a porter than a stout, I found it very enjoyable. The aroma and flavor is packed with coffee. A very smooth and creamy beer, with a touch of smokiness.
