A big beer, though I’m not a coffee fan. Stiff coffee aroma. INky with a thin tan head. Toasty, roasty, buffered acidity, pleasant light sweetness. Medium heavy body, prickly coffee mouth. Good, with that usual coffee cling to the finish. Proof, downstairs during the Friday lag. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 15, 2009
Rich black with tan head. Anyone familiar with Cuban coffee will instantly recognize the cafecito looks. Aroma is bang-on cortadito, but better than coffee. Creamy luscious mouthfeel is perfectly carbonated and smoother than a nitro pour. Finishes with a cream flavor, a sly nod to the leche. The flavors are long, lingering with a deep roasted bean flavor permeating each sip and perpetuating throughout the drink. Actually--this is a perfect rendition of a coffee brew. Impressive.

Draft. Nose full of roast and coffee. Black pour with a very tightly bubbled light brown head. Taste initially is sweet like a creamer up front that reveals some espresso and roast to dry out the finish. Pretty damn good. chinchill (5071) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 18, 2015
On nitro tap at Tall Paul’s (FL).
Pours essentially black with a very creamy tan head that has excellent retention and a full coat of lacing on the glass - perfect.
Smell: coffee with faint roasted malt and chocolate.
Taste: Dark roasted grains under cafe con leche, as one might expect from the name. A bit too sweet.
Feel: very smooth; medium-light body.
Overall: recommended for fans of sweetened cafe con leche. DialSquare (5062) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2013
On tap at Proof. Near black pour with thin tan head. Aroma is sweet roasty malts and coffee. Tastes are dark chocolate, sweet milkiness, bitter cocoa, little earthy. Slick texture, cocoa bitter. It was very good, but I was expecting crazy stuff given the other ratings. 7.6

Pours a hazy brown on tap with fluffy tan head that dissipates to leave a light lacy cap. Aroma is sweet milk chocolate and a hint of coffee. Taste is less sweet and more roast than the nose, bittersweet finish. Another solid offering from CCB. Nekronos (4174) - Xalapa, MEXICO - OCT 18, 2015
Quite awesome! Probably the best stout I have had in years. VEyr milky and thick. INteresting shape and features. andrewje41 (3999) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Nitro pour at Willard’s Tap house. #1 sweet stout. Cool! Pours black with a thick coat of tan cream head and lacing. Medium roasted coffee aroma. Flavor is sweet cream masking bold coffee. Vanilla. Sweet, but not too rich. Excellent. jcartamdg (3470) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Had out of the fermenter right before they kegged it, thanks Bob! Pours a thick jet black with a dark mocha head. Aroma of rich coffee, lactose and chocolate. Taste is coffee, cream and chocolate, very rich but that doesn’t stop me from wanting more. Man, is this an amazing coffee stout. Reynolds314 (3459) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 29, 2013
This is realllllly tasty stuff. Tons of roasty esspresso and sweet vanilla bean with a smooth silky body. Sweet but not cloying as it fades to great coffee flavors. This is a beauty.
