You have to really enjoy coffee beers to like this. You also have to enjoy cream stouts. This is true to its word on both. It could have been so good because we had nothing but ipaís all day and finally had this change, and it was sweetly wonderful. However, I still believe that as a tapped specimen it was precisely what it claimed and done well.
