Smooth, super dark pour with no head. Sweet, nutty chocolate taste with zero bitter aftertaste. One of my favorite stouts.

12 oz bottle from the Four Firkins. Dark brown pour with a creamy tan head. Amazing aromas and flavors of roasty chocolate and coffee, creamy mouthfeel, smooth finish. Fantastic beer, Iíll be drinking lots of them!

Poured into a snifter.
3.0 A: Black color. Just about one finger of light brown head that fell quickly and left no lacing.
5.0 S: Wonderful interplay of lactose and chocolate. Actually, thereís a good hit of coffee in there as well, so this is much like a mocha latte. Light roastiness and plenty of oats. This is incredibly intense, but also incredibly appealing. Excellent!
4.5 T: Taste is a lot like the nose. Lactose, chocolate, and coffee flavors do the trick again. Oats, a light roastiness, and grainy malts add complexity. Really nice again.
4.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy and insanely smooth.
5.0 D: The taste could have easily been a five. This is a damn tasty brew and shockingly close to Cowbell in terms of flavor profile and quality. I think I need to get ahold of several more of these.

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 isnít too heavy. would not hesitate to buy another six-pack.

Really nice complexity with relatively good balance. Found this to be quite pleasant and inviting of the 2nd Pint!

A - Pitch black with a small, foamy, bubbly, thinish, cafe colored head. Disappears pretty fast leaving a slightly patchy, thin lace.
S - Interesting aroma. Starts with a slightly smokey, roasted malt. This gives way to a chocolate and espresso aroma with a slight sweetness. A faint vinous tart/astringent aroma.
T - Starts with the faint charred, smokey flavor. This quickly fades to a milk and dark chocolate along with a hint of roasted coffee. Hints of sweet lactose/creamy taste starts here with a nice undertone. Finishes with a slight tart and earthy flavor.
M - Medium body and good carbonation. Very silky smooth. Really nice body.
D - Easy to drink with interesting mix of flavors. Taste like a milk stout along with a smokey and slightly tart flavor. I could regularly drink this.
Notes: Interesting milk stout. Nice flavors with an interesting smokey kick. Great body and nice flavor. Not amazing, but very nice.

Thanks to Bob for the bottle! Poured clear, deeper ambery-brown with a sticky cap of dark tan head.. looked very good in the glass. The aroma picked up sweet, milky chocolates and buttery notes with a hint of molasses-crusted biscuity notes beneath.. sweet, smooth, and very desserty impression.. I very much enjoyed it. The flavor found buttermiky-y chocolates, smooth rolled oats, and vanilla at the core, with light earthy and cocoa bitterness around.. more milky chocolates and complementary roasted bitterness on the finish. Medium-bodied with a very smooth feel across the palate.. the levels and placement of bitterness and roast worked perfectly.. just excellent stuff. This was surprisingly good, and I hope more people get to try it when itís fresh.
