Good stuff here! Shared at the last C-bus tasting. Almost black pour. Lots of chocolate milk and coffee in the aroma. Great mouthfeel--creamy and very smooth. Taste is milk chocolate and a bit of roasted coffee. The flavors work very well together.
Tap; pours black with a khaki colored head; aroma of roasted coffee, malt, chocolate, and hints of vanilla; sweet taste with chocolate, coffee, milk, and a trace of vanilla; finish is dry with some coffee, roast malt, and a hint of alcohol warming bytemesis (9326) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 3, 2017

Flavor is medium sweet, fully bitter, heavy coffee, mocha and tobacco, lactose sugar, burned sugars. Full body, creamy mouthfeel, lingering ashy bitterness. mnmike (1091) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 12, 2016
On tap at the Surly brew pub. Good roasty stout with the milk sweetness fairly present dinkle50 (1559) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 25, 2016
Jet black pour with a single finger espresso head. Lots of lace present. Aroma is sweet, a little coppery. Creamy full mouth. Taste is full of sweet coffee. Reminds me of a cup of coffee with a little booze in it. Chocolate creeps in as well. Really nice beer, but I think the fermentation could have been a little bit cleaner. There are some boozy qualities to this that knock it down a notch. arnold931 (1264) - Iowa, USA - JUL 10, 2016

On tap at the brewery. Dark brown pour with a brown head. Chocolate aromas. Silky smooth with dark chocolates, dark roasted malt, and delicious expresso notes. Really good body and mouthfeel. Feel like a much bigger stout. Lactose and caramel backbeats. Bravo. Nsanders (1179) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUN 26, 2016
