3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a black brown color with light brown head. Lots of head. Aroma is of choclate and roasted malt. Flavor is carbonated and full of choclate (of course). Also picked up toffee, hops and bitter. Like drinking a cold Mocha. Palate is bit thin for my taste. Overall a nice brew. Thanks to PPP63 for this tasty brew!

Poured black with a small lasting tan head. Smells of bitter chocolate, coffee and coal. Flavor is good, burnt chocolate with a nice bitter finish. Thick body with just the slightest bit of carbonation for a wonderful stout mouthfeel. Nice dark bitter chocolate finish.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle Pours a very dark bown with a small tan head that setles into a fine ring that is maintained indefinately. Spotty lacing. Aroma is a delicious, chocolatey, molasas, with a hint of espresso and plenty of dark roasted grain. Flavor is a much more bitter and hopy than the aroma led me to expect. Fairly well balanced but strong. Finish is bitterswet chocolate and dry.

Tar black body with a nice light brown head. Roasted malt, coffee and sweet chocolate in the aroma with a slight tone of alcohol. Flavorfull and smooth. Bitter hoppy with a sour citrusy finish. Dark roasted malt and coffee notes. Smooth and tasty.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown with a very thin light caramel colored head. The nose is a distinct chocolate malts and milk chocolate aroma, but also has some fuesal and vegetable-like off aromas. Medium body, semi-sweet chocolate chip flavors throughout, but a little sickly sweet in the finish with some grainy vegetable flavors... this stout demands a thicker body and more smoke. The lingering coating of the mouth resembles unsweetened bakers chocolate.

black body and ruby at edges. dark tan head, both creamy and foamy. lasts pretty well. USDA organic! roasted malt aroma, later cocoa and prune upon warming. smooth and creamy mouthfeel, fizzy up front but fades. dry/bitter roasted malt/coffee flavor start, then gets watery and coffee/bitter finish.

This is not a terrible example of a milk stout, though not a big fan of this style this was reasonably tasty. Pours murky and dark, with very little head. The aroma is slightly fruity, like figs and prunes with a light burnt malty flavor some milk chocolate and coffee. Very syrupy, with a little vegetal taste at times. Not bad.

Very full flavour stout, dark esspresso,burnt embers,unsweet chocolate..also some sweetness right at the start..nice stuff.
Very nice and smooth on the palate.
Very very drinkable for one so complex..really enjoying this.

Black, sturdy brown head. Mildly chocolate aroma. Nice, full mouthfeel. Rich, full chocolate flava with a persistant woodsy, spicy hop bite. Surprisingly drinkable for how full bodied it is.
