Black with a thick tan head. Aroma is big coffee, almost like an espresso. Flavor is coffee with a strong bittersweet finish. Main complaint is lack of body, bit otherwise excellent. Wife: 4.5

Deep and dark with a tannish brown head. Coffee, roasty malt, and hints of cocoa and toast. A bit of crispness to the finish.

Keg @ Starr Hill. Deep brown with a tight tan head. Plenty of coffee, eclair, roast, ash. Sort of nutty. Taste of cold coffee, se creamer. Raisin. Cocoa. Light vanilla. Ashy dry finish. Soft carb. Easy-drinking. Well-rounded.

This is the best thing Iíve had from Starr Hill. It pours dense, dark brown with a little bit of tan head. The is sweet coffee, maybe a little chocolate in the background. The flavor is really sweet, smooth, rich, and delicious. The finish is a little watery, but that ends up working in the beerís favor. Sweet beers can grow cloying before the last sip, but this one stayed smooth and enjoyable. It suggests a number of possibly damn good food pairings. Iíll have this again, hopefully at a restaurant.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body under a one finger fizzy light brown head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is very nice, sweet cream, fresh brewed coffee, caramel, roast, smells like dessert in a glass to me. The flavor is roasty with a fairly restrained sweetness given the heavy lactose in the nose. The coffee and chocolate notes are really nice as well. Maybe a bit thin in the body and on the finish, but thatís being a bit petty. Pretty nice beer, but then again, Iím a bit of a sucker for coffee beers.

Bottle from The Stout Brothers in Smyrna, GA. Deep cola/brown pour with a small ring head. Big aroma of coffee grounds. Some roasty coffee on taste, with a hint of caramel sweetness. Palate is moderate, with a touch of lively carbonation.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- It smells like I am smelling my coffee pot! A very strong and nice smelling coffee aroma. Appearance- Uhhmm, did I mention coffee? with a light brown head. really nice looking. Taste- Whoa, coffee and malt. I really like the flavor. Palate- A medium to heavy body with real light carbonation. Overall- I am new to the Milk Stout style and this is a great awakening for me. I really enjoyed it.
