I have been trying to get these guys to brew a coffee stout for a while. So imagine my surprise to try this one today.
Nitro tap pour into my Imperial Pint glass the thing looked gorgeous. I love nitro pours, big off white creamy looking head that went to a nice lace. The body of the brew was a typical stout black color.
Great coffee aroma came up from my glass although this is my first coffee flavored stout from the tap I was very impressed. There was also a nice sweetness from the lactose that made it way thru as well.
The flavor was extremely balanced I think sometimes the milk stouts can be too sweet for me. With the coffee flavors to add to the bitter made this much more drinkable in my book. Like I said I love a nitro pour it really make the mouthfeel stand out thick and creamy are two words I would use to describe it.
Yes this is drinkable I had two glasses back to back. I ended up with the jitters but it was worth it. I’ll have another tomorrow Goodgrief (2022) - 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. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2009

Jet black with no head. Excellent aroma. Lashings of fruit, lots of coffee plus some plum and chocolate. The flavour is even better. Huge black malt hits first followed by rich rich chocolate, amazing coffee and glorious boozy notes. Stunning chalky casky finish with so much character and balance. Absolutely fantastic. Even Tom liked it!
Nitro, black body with creamy white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee beans, cocoa, and vanilla. Taste of roasted malts, coffee, lactose, oats, and cocoa. oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 11, 2009

(as Milk Coffee Stout). Deep brownish amber colour, small brown head. Aroma is bigtime roasted malts, smokke and wooden along with caramel and syrup. Flavour is much the same along with some coffee and tar. Big smoky finish.

Fruity hop aroma. Black very smooth on the palate and fruity with a little dryness in a creamy burnt coffee roast finish. fonefan (48815) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2009

Clear dark brown color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, beige to light brown head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, burnt, coffee, milk chocolate. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat. 
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. 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. johnnnniee (4285) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 25, 2012

Pours a solid dark brown that borders on black with a huge creamy tan head that sticks around forever and leaves plenty of lace on the way down. Smell is sweet and roasty with just a hint of coffee. Smells a little like a mix between chocolate and coffee milk. Taste is sweet an a bit sugary with lots of roast, chocolate, coffee and a hint of lactic bite that I always seem to get from beer sweetened with lactose. Smooth silky creamy mouthfeel, medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation. Very nice stout. I wish I could have tasted the milk stout and this one side by side.
