COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
BEER DESCRIPTION
Sweet, roasty and always invigorating, traditional Latin American cafe con leche coffee can be found nearly everywhere in our hometown of Tampa, Florida and serves as the inspiration for our Cafe Con Leche Sweet Stout. The beer is made with bold, strong coffee beans to emulate the most characterful Cuban espresso and lactose, a milk sugar that adds sweetness, body and flavors reminscent of scalded milk. Despite it's assertive flavors and full body, our sweet stout is deceptively low in alcohol, making it the perfect accompaniment to a late-morning plate of eggs, bacon and tostatas.

TASTING NOTES
Malted milk, chocolate and fresh-ground coffee aromas bring to mind the finest cup of caf? con leche coffee while flavors of toffee, semi-sweet chocolate and a touch of roast on the palate are complimented by espresso and a touch of vanilla

On draft at brewery, poured a dark black color with a little tan head. Aromas of freshly brewed coffee, light milk, and some cream. Flavors are robust coffee, light roasted malt, and sweet milk. I have been waiting for this one to come back on tap for a long time, and it did not disappoint. Another solid stout from CCB.

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.

Bottle thanks to retorp. Pours a dark brown with a nice tan head. Yellow laces like crazy. Nose is a ton of espresso, roasted malt, chicory, and the bitterness inherent in those. Flavor is a lot of coffee and espresso flavor, but balanced overall. Lots of different roasted flavors in the beer, and it refuses to be pigeonholed into being labeled a "coffee beer." I swear it has the caffeine to match, too. Very good beer- will stand up with any of the top ten coffee beers.

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.

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.

3.8
DialSquare (5187) - 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

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.

BelgianBeerGal (4249) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2018 Bottle from Beach Liquor FWB. Typical dark stout pour with a foamy brown head that lasts forever. The aroma is light with coffee and lactose. The flavor is big baking chocolate and some espresso bitterness. Enjoyable.
