A top tier milk stout! It has a rich black color. It has a smoky, malty, chocolate aroma. The flavor is a very complex, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, vanilla, and caramel all mixed together. Very rich and delicious! This is a wonderful dessert beer, or "hot chocolate for adults"

A great milk stout. Pours an amazingly thick inky black with a brown head. Smells like toasted nuts, caramel, chocolate and vanilla. Taste is great. Starts off sweet and creamy, then finishes with some bitter chocolate. Super thick. Would be great with ice cream. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2015 Bottle: Thanks, Kevin! Very dark, black pour with a super dark tan film that is completely gone in seconds. Aroma is deep roast, dark cocoa beans, mild coffee grounds, maybe only a touch of dark fruit. Taste is full of roasted malt, light ashiness with some timid coffee and dark, unsweet cocoa notes. Very mild finishing licorice and prune touch, but the roast and coffee notes linger. Mild astringency grows with warmth. Medium, sharp body. Decent.

Dark brown with brown hue, very little light brown head. Malty chocolate scent. Thin watery mouthfeel, low carbonation, smooth finish. Smokey chicory bitter and dark fruit taste. Flavor good but a bit watery and astringent.

Whew! This is a big delicious beer! It pours jet black with a dark brown head. Aroma is coffee, Mocha, dark Chocolate. Mouth feel is sticky and velvety. Taste is awesome, roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate. Clocking in a 10%ABV this beer is definitely a sipper, but a sipper that you cannot put down!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours an inky black body with a small thin fizzy dark brown head that faded to a few small bubbles. The nose is really chocolaty and decadent with some rich roasted malt, sweetness, and some moderate alcohol notes. The flavor is a little too sweet for my tastes, the burnt caramel and chocolate notes come on a little too heavy and strong. Add in the effect of the heat from the 10% ABV and you donít exactly get a very easy drinking beer. Finishes with a bit of burnt roasted malt, coffee, and alcohol. Medium bodied, a bit sticky and clingy, especially on the finish. Itís a decent beer, but not something that Iím going to treasure drinking a full bomberís worth.
