On tap at the brewpub.
Black and opaque with a decent head but little lacing.

flavor follows and has a bit of burnt toast.
Mildly bitter by the finish, and clearly low sweetness for style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Dark brown body with a slim, slender head the color of water damp sand.
Smell: Dark, roasty malts with a scent of coffee-flavored ice cream and bittersweet chocolate morsels.
Taste: Roasty and sweet at the open, with bittersweet chocolate and dark caramel dusted with instant coffee powder. Shot of cream. A touch of Black Twizzler nibs. Earthy, roasty bitterness, though pretty mild. Even a hint of floral, citrusy hops far underneath the malts. Smooth, roasty finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-light carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel.
Overall: Tasty. Tried side-by-side with the milk stout dosed with espresso and, almost shockingly, the espresso version was thinner and faint in nearly all its characteristics. Stick with the Rosebud, I say!
