4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Antioch Fine Wine. Pours black with tan head. Nose is bakers chocolate, light licorice, espresso, some caramel and brown sugar. Interesting complex blend. Taste is dark chocolate, caramel, espresso, molasses, and cocoa. With creamy milk. Medium to full bodied. Finishes sweetly bitter with a nice blend of the two - leaning to the bitter side, but creamy. Just a bit more depth and would be a wonderful impy stout. First AtG - will find more. 15.2

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black pour with a very thin espresso head. Sweet aroma with hints of chocolate and roasted grain. Medium mouth. Taste is pretty sweet but finishes bitter. Great roast component full of bitter dark chocolate and espresso beans. One of the better milk stouts Iíve had. One flaw is the mouth is a little on the light side.

Relative straight forward stout with nice roast, char, and earthy notes. I would consider this an Imperial dry stout more than anything. It is what it is and there is nothing wrong with that.... Sweet Stout? UR kidding right?

Damn I like this. Pours gorgeous jet black with tan frothy head. Smells like sticky sweet coffee and cocoa. Taste is super sweet from the lactose, which compliments the chocolate and coffee flavors very nicely. Plenty of vanilla notes as well, with a nice little bitter bite at the end. This is really a desert beer, but itís SOOOO good.

Pours a jet black with 2 fingers of head. Nose is great, body is great, flavor profile could use a bit more. Itís a very good beer just not terribly complex.
