750 ml bottle; thanks Tom!! Dense brown with huge aromas of chocolate and creamy vanilla; not quite in the level of the Kuhnhenn Imperial Crème, but getting close; texture is on the light side with sweet vanilla and ashy chocolate dominating; some crisp roast comes out in the finish but a tad too candy sweet for me hopscotch (11182) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Bottle… Pours murky and dark brown with a small, creamy, khaki head. The bouquet is of coffee and dark chocolate – mocha. Full-bodied and velvety with tingly carbonation. Acrid, bittersweet chocolate and coffee flavor. Nice, hearty, carbonaceous finish that dries out just a touch. mar (5436) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2010
bottle thanks to exiled. poured black with a cream head. nose is coffee, roasted coffee, roasted malts, and no chocolate. nice on the palate, flavor is coffee, coffee, coffee, with roasted malts in the finish. williamherbert (1546) - Syracuse, New York, USA - APR 30, 2010
Aroma is heavy coffee beans and that’s about it. Very heavy; pleasant enough but rather one-note.
The appearance is dark, opaque brown, almost black. Not much head.
The flavor is bitter iced coffee on the first swallow. Roasted with a sweetish raisin finish. Dry, dry malts. Dates and plums. Maple as my sister pointed out.
The palate is smooth and buttery, with a grainy finish. Warm it up for maximum enjoyment. Roasted as hell and dark. Too much with the iced coffee, but very drinkable. AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - APR 30, 2010

Thanks to exiled for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is strong coffee and vanilla. The flavor is roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. This is an excellent sweet stout that I hopefully will get to try again. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 25, 2010
Brown pour with tan head and lace. Aroma of light chocolate. Roasted malt, light coffee flavor. A bit thin and watery. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 23, 2010
(750ml bottle batch E!016 thanks to Exiled) deep brown pour with creamy head. Nose of espresso, raw coffee beans. Very creamy finish, peanut butter/jelly and peanut shells in the taste. MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2010
Bottle purchased at Chucks in Chagrin Falls. Wow, this beer is certainly well defined: coffee flavored strong milk stout. Yep. All that is in here, very simply. Flavor is heavy of green coffee and lactose, flavor comes along quite the same. Very crisp at first, then mellows nicely like a milk stout should.

Bottle shared by my brother. Darkest brown pour with a medium tan head. Aroma of coffee and green bell pepper. Flavor is equally coffee and bell pepper with a chocolate finish.
