COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cafe Leche, our Milk and Coffee Porter, is infused with Evansville’s own TJ’s Roaster coffee beans as well as lactose to provide a rich flavor and mouth feel. TJ’s Guatemalan coffee lends a robust and slightly floral coffee aroma, supported with a generous portion of dark caramel malts. The flavor is a perfect blend of coffee and beer: sweet dark malts and cold brewed coffee combine for a flavor with gentle roast, floral earthiness, and pleasant sweetness. The addition of lactose to the beer completes the experience by providing a sweet and satisfying finish, making this beer perfect for any time of day.

Tap at J’s. Pours a deep brown to light black with a finger of beige foam that dissipates quickly. Oreo and creamy vanilla on the nose. Coffee notes on the palate with a touch more vanilla. Light and easy drinking porter with a lingering light roasted coffee finish. Solid stuff.

Pours a brownish-black color with a medium foamy tan head that diminishes gradually to a film. Partial rings of lacing. Roasted malt, coffee and chocolate in the nose. Light to medium body with a roasty coffee and malt character, with some cocoa in the background. The finish is sweet with a mocha aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of green pepper and coffee with some mild dark grains. Flavor has sweet coffee and dark grains with a hint of green pepper and a bit of a thin finish.

As advertised, you smell the coffee and sweetness of the lactose as soon as you pour this beer. A dark brown appearance with low carbonation and small head. Has a nice bitter taste from the coffee on the tongue but the sweetness masks it slightly. A well made milk stout infused with local coffee for Tin Man.

can @ Keg Liquors / Clarksville IN --- Aroma of toasted malt and bitter chocolate. Opaque brown-black color, deep tan head that stays awhile, cobwebs of lace. Taste is creamy smooth lightly toasted malt that moves through light carbonation to dark chocolate and black coffee, with all moving smoothly through a finish that is more coffee than hops. An outstanding light brew, one that I’ll buy again (4-pack this time) when I stop at Keg. High recommendations.

shigadeyo (3790) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2016
Aroma of freshly roasted and ground coffee, hints of cream and sugary sweetness, cocoa; coffee brown/color color, appears a bit cloudy with a scant, beige froth on the surface; caramel malt, rich cocoa and milk chocolate, intense coffee with cream and sugar without being too overpowering, earthy with subtle floral, fruitiness, and nuttiness; medium body, smooth, calm mouth feel; really damn good coffee beer (and lactose beer) that exemplifies the style.

Can thanks to StFun. Pours a cloudy brown with medium frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong roast coffee and cocoa. Medium mouth, chocolate, roast, bitter finish, very good.

Thanks and praise to StFun for this beer. If things keep going the way they are, I’m going to develop a pretty major bias toward dark beers infused with cold brewed coffee. Tin Man’s Cafe Leche only further confirms my belief that cold brewed is the way to go. The Guatemalan coffee notes are lovely. They’re floral, roasty, and slightly fruity. The added lactose gives this beer a creamy taste and feel. Some coffee-infused Porters can be fairly bitter, but Cafe Leche is sweet and rich. Coffee porters have been popular this year but I can’t remember having many that have been as balanced and tasty as this one.
