3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by beerpig317. Poured dark brown color with medium tan frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy roasted chocolate, vanilla and coffee aroma. Medium to full body with a dry smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted dark chocolate, vanilla sweet flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded with a very good stout.

A meal in itself. Almost perfect balance of bitter chocolate and some sweetness. Black with some head, bittersweet chocolate aroma. Smooth mouthfeel. Incredibly drinkable. Fresh bottle from 20 west.

Killer label. Nice one with light peat and smoke notes, sweet caramel, lots of bitterness and lots of sweetness.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle and served in snifter: Pours basically opaque with a rich tan head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of chocolate, roast, char, coffee, vanilla and resiny hop esters. A tad earthy, tobacco and grainy as well. The taste delivers on what is expected with an initial crush of choc/van/roast malt overtone with more coffee-ish and hop bitterness in support. Some lactic acid twang but not all that sweet nor fruity. The finish is a tad harsh and green, seems boozier than 8%... this is really an Imperial Stout in Milk Stout clothing.

22oz bottle, shared by beerpig317. Good dark brown color. Thin light brown head. Plenty dots of lace. Awesome Three Floyds -esque label. Great big coffee aroma. Sweet taste, but good bitterness, too. Lighter carbonation, bigger body. More dry in the finish. Good chewiness. My kind of sweet stout.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle shared by beerpig317. Pours a dark cola brown with a small beige head. The aroma has roast, ash, chocolate, mild oatmeal sweetness and a touch of coffee. The flavor has roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, some lactose sweetness and a touch of coffee bitterness to the finish. This is bigger and more dry than most sweet stouts. Pretty good though.

Bomber to snifter (thanks Beerpig317). Looks good; a mostly opaque dark cola with beige lacing. Smells good too; smooth, dark, and roasty. Tastes like it smells with some vanilla too, and a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Good beer!
