On tap at Arbor. Poured a dark brown. Aroma was chocolate, malt and a hint of coffee. Flavor was more of the same, with a sweet caramel touch. A very good stout.

Tap: Black, hand pulled, no carbination. Grand aroma of sweet chocolate, malty coffee and toffe. Goes down incredibly smooth for this stout. Very well balanced, extremely drinkable with good mouth feel. One of the best stouts I’ve had to date.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2006 Tap: Yeah, no real head, a little thin compared to the two other new stouts ABC is offering up. A little bit of coffee, slightly vinous mouthfeel. Had a little tang to it that hit me in the salivary glands.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap: Lack with decent head. Coffe up front. Coffee with chocolate undertones. Bitter finish. Was decent but I am not a true stout fan only because I can’t stand coffee.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2003 This is just plain luxurious. It's a milk stout without any lactose (! for vegans!) - it has all the usual suspects, coffee in medium measure, roast somewhat less than that, some chocolate, some (apparently non-)lactic sourness. I was not expecting much, yet this is more full bodied than some - perfect body. Great experience.
