COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Macchiato is made with pale, caramel, chocolate, and roasted malts. Oats and lactose are added to give the beer a more robust and sweeter taste. The sweetness of the lactose helps balance the bitterness of the brew just like in the coffee drink, which is our inspiration. The roasted malts give the beer its dark color as well as its intense flavor and aroma. Willamette hops are added to balance out the sweetness of the malts. Finally, PJs Coffee espresso dolce beans are added to the aging tank. This gives the beer a strong coffee flavor and aroma that compliments the existing flavors of the malt.

Bomber from Beach Liquors. Never been a fan of Abita but a friend recommended this one. Thanks Kati this is a delicious stout. You have to reason that a Louisiana based brewery would know how to do a milk coffee stout. While this is not my highest scoring stout, if you factored in price it would be tough to beat. A 22 ounce bomber for $5.19 is a heck of a deal.

650ml bottle from Sonoma Cellars in Oconomowoc. Black pour with a paler-than-beige head, almost off-white. Quite surprising in combination. Solid streaky lacing. Aroma has big roast espresso, light nut, and chocolate. Later down in the glass, some sweet malt and some lactose show through. This is so led by the smooth fresh roasted coffee, though. Taste is roast, light chocolate, sweet caramel and some nut with some nice oatmeal smoothing things out. The taste is much less a player than the nose, although solid enough. No more than medium bodied with a touch of an alcohol presence. The blend is solid and the carbonation is soft. Finishes to the bitter side of bittersweet. This is better than solid coffee brew. The presence of the roast is a big player, and it is well done. This is actually not so sweet as well blended between the strong coffee bitterness and the other players supplying balancing sweetness. Only down tick is it is a bit light. A stronger, deeper body would be killer. 14.2

Poured from the tap into a 20 oz mug at the Taco Mac in Atlanta. The appearance is a black color with a small tan colored head. The aroma is coffee and chocolate. The taste is very similar to the nose. An excellent beer.

Nice deep dark brown color and tannish head. Heavy aromas of chocolate and coffee. Sweet and creamy chocolate and coffee flavors with a nice touch of hops at the end.

Mmm, a great balance between sweet & bitter! Pours opaque w/ a thin tan head & little lacing. The aroma is chocolate & lightly roasted coffee. The taste contains chocolate w/ a slight coffee bitterness throughout. The balance is superb w/ an outstanding soft mouthfeel. Very, very good!

Pours a solid black with q tan head and lacing. It has a great coffee aroma with some toast and dark malt too. The flavor is coffee and toasty malt up front with a toasty, semisweet finish over a smooth body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2015 A thick oily mouthfeel delivers a rich bitter Espresso flavor and aroma. The coffee component here is way in the forefront, and comes across as very fresh. Bittering hops serve to balance, but the dark roast takes firm hold early on, and does not relinquish control. Black as black can be with a creamy resilient tan head. Would pair well with desserts with a strong caramel component.

Draft. It poured black with a tan head. The aroma and flavor is like a strong cup of black coffee. There is a slight creaminess on the finish.
