Bottle. Pours black with a 2 finger ran head. Nose is overwhelmingly coffee grinds. Taste is similar but finishes with some milky sweetness and a touch of pepper. Mouthfeel is a little thin but sufficient carb. Has potential but the coffee is just overwhelming. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shag (2656) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 22, 2015
Black with a moderate beige-ish tan head. The aroma contains some strong coffee notes with some milk chocolate and malted milk balls. The flavor is very roasty with dominance of coffee flavor but oddly not bitterness. Coffee hits you at first with some mild chocolate notes in the background. The body on this is thinner than you would think but the flavor is there. Overall a pretty good stout.

Gachupines (1031) - USA - APR 15, 2015
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.

kramer (5329) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2015
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.

ordybill (534) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 5, 2015
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.
