Using locally roasted direct-trade espresso and oatmeal malt, the deep chocolate and toastiness of this espresso milk stout’s malt profile is kept open and clean on the palate by the mellow acidity of Brazilian and Ethiopian espresso.

Draught at Garage39. Creamy coffee, brown sugar, cocoa, notes of vanilla, gentle sweet finish. Nicely smooth and flavorful coffee brew, a pleasant surprise from a somewhat uneven brewery.

nuplastikk (5270) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 9, 2015
22oz bomber. Opaque brown-black body. Patchy beige head. A solid example of the style. Creamy, smooth chocolate, coffee, roast malt tones. Full bodied, but smooth and clean..very refreshingly not overbearing or barrel aged. A pinch chalky.dry at times, where you might hope it would be a little more lush. The hops are hard to decipher,but certainly give it some nice balance. Creamy. milky finish. Solid.

Serving: from tap at Veraci. Aroma: light chocolate. Appearance: small, frothy, light-brown initial head with very good lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, cola-brown body. Taste: lightly acidic, roasty initial flavor and lightly sweet, chocolate, roasty finish with short duration. Palate: medium bodied with watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall: very good.

AirForceHops (5030) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 20, 2014
22 oz. Bottle carried home by Eric S. And spilt 3 ways. Pitch black color with thin white head. Aroma is old coffee, sugar and chocolate malt.

The flavor is coffee with cream, dry roasted malt and mild old vanilla bean note. Lots of lactose sugar can be detected. The texture is dry with a medium body. The coffee bean held up real nicely in this stout. A tad above average and highly drinkable.

Pours pitch black and maybe a finger of tan head. Bold front taste and smooth finish. Subtle notes of coffee. A easy drinking beer for the most part, missing some flavor on the back end.

SHIG (4060) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle: Poured a pitch black with thin whisper tan head. Strong coffee bold espresso. Taste is rich dark chocolate with nice bitter coffee bean. I liked that the nose was bold but the taste was smooth and silky.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3565) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 14, 2014
On tap at Rokko Beer Diner, 7%, this stout pours a deep black with a thick foamy beige head that like their pale ale leaves behind great lacing coating the whole rim of the glass as it slowly dissipates. Rich umami, soy & chocolate aroma. A smooth medium bodied beer with a soft mouthfeel. It is packed with roasty milk chocolate flavors with the espresso/coffee coming through in the finish & lingering aftertaste. Well done, there’s no hint this is packing a 7% punch.

22 ounce bottle into snifter; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours pitch black color with a 2 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, toast, dark bread, oats, light cream, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and coffee notes with light-moderate earthy hop presence; and solid strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, toast, dark bread, oats, light cream, herbal, floral, and roasted earthiness. Light earthy roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roast, toast, dark bread, oats, light cream, herbal, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and coffee with light-moderate hop presence; with good robustness and zero cloying after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, creamy, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good oatmeal coffee stout. All around good balance and robustness of dark/roasted malt, coffee, and light-moderate hop flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A nicely enjoyable offering.
