3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2009-07-19. Pitch black body, nice tan head faces. (3+) Aroma of roast malt, touch of coffee grounds. (6+) Flavour is sweeter than expected from the nose, touches of roast and mocha overtones, but not a lot of roast bitterness, sweet malty middle. Smooth medum plate is lightly carbonated. Aged a bit longer than planned, but it is a decent stout. Aged Bottle via ChicagoDRI trade.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours very dark blackish, with a great head and great lacing. Smells of coffee, prunes, dark chocolate, cognac, and licorice. Tastes very roasty and creamy malty. Finishes very smooth, with a creamy, roasty flavor. Very bold. This one reminds me of the Lancaster Milk Stout. Very nice beer.

Black beer with dark amber-beige head. Chocolate, and dried wine or brandy barrels; sweet, near-fruity. Dark-brown sugar aroma. Sweet, coffee & cacaopowder; roasted finish, breadcrust. Retronasal like unsweetened cocoacream. Quite velvety MF, despite lively carbonation. Medium bodied, slick. Sweet, but warming stout, nice. Once more thanks to DaveDave

On Tap. This is one creamy and delicious ale. It just makes you want to suck it down. Bell’s serves it too cold though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma of sweetened chocolate, a lactate-y quality and slight roastiness. Flavour follows suit, with the roastiness and sweetened chocolate upfront - milky body that leaves the slightly sweetened chocolate lingering. Quite good though nothing overly special.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep black pour with an unfortunately short caramel-colored head. Aroma was heavy on the roasted malts.. with chocolate dominating. Powerfully smooth and well-coating on the palate. Coffee-like bitterness on the finish. Flavor was sweet with chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. Very fine all around! Only problem I have with it is that I just bought one :(
