Abita Brewing Company Cold Brewed Macchiato Espresso Milk Stout

I like coffee, I like beer, I like those things together. It is a good and somewhat popular style. This Abita Brewing Company Cold Brewed Macchiato Espresso Milk Stout, 6.0% ABV is three dark beer styles in one, Coffee, Milk, and Stout. Macchiato Espresso Milk Stout is brewed with Pale, caramel, chocolate, and roasted malts along with Willamette, natural milk sugars and oats, as well as PJ’s coffee Espresso Dolce Beans. Macchiato Espresso Milk Stout pours and black color with a big foamy tan/beige three finger head that stick like glue, but eventually gives way and leave behind cream lacing. The aroma is like a freshly roasted dark coffee. Smell really nice. Taste is fresh roasted dark coffee, some faint chocolate and very faint sweetness. I think the heavy coffee flavors hind the faint sweetness from the natural milk sugars and oats. Macchiato Espresso Milk Stout finishes like a cup of coffee with out the coffee bitterness but more of a stout bitterness that is pleasant. The after taste lingers a bit with dark roasted beans with bit of faint chocolate. This is a good beer but I would have like to have a little more on the sweetness, just a half notch more. So I give Abita Brewing Company Cold Brew Macchiato Espresso Milk Stout an A. It is like a fresh cup of Macchiato coffee. Good stuff to have. Abita’s select series never disappoints and are always a good beer, everyone I’ve had so far has bee real good. You should try this one and the rest of Abita’s select series beers. Can’t go wrong with Abita Beer! Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
