Black pour with a brown head. Aroma is coffee and some bitterness. Taste is coffee, sweetness from lactose. Tasty beer. Nice balance of the coffee bitterness and the lactose. The hops are kept in check with lactose and coffee. drsandman (1464) - New York, USA - FEB 3, 2015

Really enjoyed this. Dark brown to near black appearance with coffee colored creamy head. Light milk chocolate coffee and toasted malts on the nose. Taste is medium sweet rich and roasty with a creamy soft palate. Well made and great. jookos (6762) - FINLAND - FEB 2, 2015
Bottle. Black, light tan top. Very pleasant soft milky coffee on nose, roasty malts, some sweet milky licorice. Isn’t aggressive at all, just lingering there, without being weak watery. Smooth mouthfeel. Excellently balanced. Super drinkable, leaving a long clean light milky coffee finish. Really nice beer. ElGaucho (2401) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle. Rich chocolatety aroma. Opaque black body with thick tan head. Excellent lace. Basically tastes like it smells. Rich sweet dark toasty flavor with more chocolate than coffee. It’s been years since I had a latte, let alone a double latte, so don’t recall if, like this beer, a latte tastes more like a dessert than coffee. Excellent for the style; just not my favorite style.

This was shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Poured dark brown almost black with a tan head. Nose starts out as coffee and then coffee arrives. Medium plus body. Smooth creamy mouthfeel .Flavor is lactic sith a lot of coffee and chocolate in good balance, and a long bitter coffee based finish. Really good and enjoyable.

12 ounce bottle from Hayduke that we had over facebook chat. This pours very dark and has a smallish tan head. Not a big aroma but it offers lactic and roasted notes. A little cocoa, too. The flavor begins with coffee. It has a very authentic aspect to it. Some interesting lactic notes. Later the chocolate emerges more. Just a little fruit from hops. Later the coffee returns to prominence. The brewers did a nice job with this one. Well done! hackobock (4029) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 11, 2015

Black with medium sized brown head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, milk and caramel. Taste is sweet caramel and lactose, light bitter roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Medium bodied, soft carbonation.
Tasted from bottle. Pours black with a thick tan head with excellent lacing. Incredible aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, milk and caramel. Taste is also excellent. Perfectly balanced. Coffee espresso, chocolate, toffee, caramel, biscuits and roasted nut flavors. Probably the best sweet stout I've had.

12fl oz bottle bottled 5/30/14. Pours black with a half finger, creamy tan head that sticks to the glass.

Creamy dark chocolate, coffee, caramel, bread, and an espresso bitter finish. Perfectly balanced. Full body with a medium carbonation. Creamy in the mouth with a dry finish. Overall probably the best coffee beer I?ve had. Perfectly balanced with a great, creamy mouth feel.
