Excelsior Spresso Milk Stout

Excelsior Spresso Milk Stout. Excelsior Brewing Company, Excelsior, MN. 4.6% ABV.

Fully black, rich cocoa head that dissipates in a moment.

Roasted coffee bean nose, then comes silky smooth malt notes, a bit of cream. Espresso notes dominate.

In the mouth: sweet and smooth, with just enough roasted malt. Subtle stout flavors subsumed by coffee. Medium bodied, easy-drinking stout.  Definitely down-able. A sessionable coffee stout, to be sure.
