4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours pitch black. Seriously. I held it up to light and could not see through it. Brownish tan head. not much lacing on the glass. Smells of roasted coffee, chocolate and molasses. Taste is bitter chocolate, coffee, roasted malts. Nice creamy mouthfeel with little carbonation and silky smooth on the palate. I enjoyed this Milk Stout through and through.

On tap, deep black with a medium tan head leaving a light lacing. Aroma is of caramel and coffee. Surprisingly light in body and oily, finishes clean. Tasted medium sweet and lightly bitter, chocolate and coffee. Overall, a great stout. Pairs well with a hearty meal (Shepherds Pie).

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Earthy aroma, a little malty and toasty. Starts out with a little sweetness and zest in the mouth which quickly transitions to a slightly bittersweet swallow and a pretty clean finish. Overall, a nice milk stout.

Pours dark, small medium tan head. Silky palate feel with caramel and chocolate overtones and a light bitter finish. Chocolaty malt aroma. A very nice everyday stout.

bottle. pours well. not too heavy a head. slightly bitter/burnt taste to start with a satisfying, sweet finish. usually not a huge fan of this style, but this isn’t too heavy. would not hesitate to buy another six-pack.

aroma has a lot of coffee and some chocolate as well as dark fruit and the smallest hint smoke. also something like scotch or brandy. tastes of cocoa, coffee, dulce de leche. very smooth and not overly sweet.

Classic, a bit more bitter up front than I was in the mood for, but good palette and mouthfeel. Creamy, firm head.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a deep dark and opaque brown with a light inch of tan head, quickly becoming a light tan ring. No lacing to speak of.
The smell is dominated by dark fruit and coffee with hints of burnt black malt and smoke.
The flavor is very sweet and creamy in a very classic milk stout way. Nice hints of light smokey flavors along with coffee and some dark fruits. A bit of light astingency but not so much to detract from the beer to noticeably.
The mouthfeel is light and creamy, even a bit sticky.
A pretty solid Milk Stout overall and nicely drinkable.

Bought from red wagon in rochester. Taste of chocolate and coffee is clearly present and proves to be quite delicious! Great beer for the coming cold weather.
