Reviewed from notes. On tap before KTG 2010.
Pours a moderate to deep brown color with a bit of an off white head. The nose is some slight roast as well as a bit of chocolate and coffee. The taste is nice with a bit of milk sugar and light chocolate and coffee. Moderate feel with good carbonation. Drinks quite well and has a really nice feel from the lactose.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours deep black into a snifter. Mocha head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Coffee and dark malt aromas. Medium bodied with roasted coffee and milk chocolate from front to back. Lasting espresso finish. Goodgrief (2039) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JAN 24, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2011 Jan 2011 - Dark pour, creamy looking head and good lacing. This is a slightly coffee tinged version of the regular milk stout, which I really enjoyed. I was a bit disappointed that this wasn’t more coffee’ed up. It was still good as the base beer was good, but a missed opportunity for greatness.
May 2011 - I think this is a different version as it is described as using a Costa Rica blend from Breaking New Grounds (an EXCELLENT coffee house just down the street). Much richer coffee presence. Much better. Bumped from 3.8 to 4.2. Jblauvs (1358) - Chester, Vermont, USA - JAN 20, 2011
Black brown pour into a pint at the brewery. healthy beige head. Aroma is coffee grounds, lactose, chocolate bar, cream, milk chocolate. Mouthfeel is silk, incredibly drinkable. Flavor is thick chocolate shake, bitter coffee grounds, chocolate malt, whoppers, Damn good. Really glad I grabbed a few bottles. AirForceHops (7339) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 14, 2011
nitro pour at the brew pub. Used a snifter. Has a big off white creamy looking head that went to thick sheets of lacing that layered he glass as I drank.. Great coffee aroma along with a nice roasted malt as it warmed. There was also a nice sweetness from the lactose that made it way through as well. The flavor was extremely balanced I think sometimes brewers make sweet stouts way to sweet and turn people off. NOT the case here, very drinkable and If I could have stayed at the pub longer, I would have ordered several more. In fact; it is so well balanced, I could have drank this stout all night long. Another homerun from This brewer!!

Cask at GBBF 2009, 4th Aug 09. Black with a line of bubbles. Soft aroma of vanilla and coffee. There’s a violet hint that reminded me of Brewdog’s Coffee Imperial Stout. Very refined silky palate. Best enjoyed slowly and deliberately but it’s light enough on alcohol that you can enjoy it in quantity. Great stuff. anders37 (26734) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2009
Cask @ GBBF 2009. Pours a black color with a small tan head. Has a roasted malty coffee aroma with some hints of chocolate. Dry roasted malty bitter chocolate and coffee flavor. Has a roasted malty coffee finish with some smooth milky hints. Alphadelic (2249) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 28, 2009
Black with a slightly acetone nose containing some damp coffee and cream. No fizz here at all. I’m not too keen on the initial taste (iron and cheap white wine) but the finish is long and divine. fonefan (49586) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2009

Fruity hop aroma. Black very smooth on the palate and fruity with a little dryness in a creamy burnt coffee roast finish.
