12 oz. bottle purchased at 7-11 Kittery, ME. Black pour with some decent tan head, spotty lace down the sides. Aroma is light chocolate candy bar, mild roasted malt, sweet burnt sugar.

Flavor is very respectable. Cocoa /chocolate right upfront turning into an ashy roast. The finish gives a hint of vanilla with sweet lactose sugar giving a coffee creamer essence. Secondary mild roast in the background. The body is medium with a decent creamy texture. Honestly for the price this a nice stout. And I’m ALL about getting good craft for a decent price. Well worth a bottle or three.

[Tap] Jet black pour with a khaki colored head. Sweet nose of milk chocolate, cream and a decent amount of coffee. Chocolate syrup, lactose, vanilla and nice charred malty notes in the taste. Silky mouthfeel. Light alcoholic notes in the finish.

Black pour with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roast, roasted nuts, a little leather, earth and some pine. Flavor is dark chocolate, roast, light woody notes, earthy leaves, light leather, a little woody char, dry toasted oats, cooked dark fruit, sweet caramel malt, turbinado sugar, a hint of pine and grassy hops. Heavy body, creamy to goopy feel (definitely has the feel of something with lots of oats), light, but sharp, blanketing carbonation. Really tasty stuff, very heavy, filling feel for a 7.2% stout, not sure I’d count that’s as a positive or negative. I like it quite a bit.

Art & Antiques in Shiner, TX. Bottle poured into pint glass. Pours caramel black with a strong khaki head that lingers. Smells of rich milk chocolate and a touch of malt. Flavor is the same - smooth and creamy. Great taste for the ABV. Would drink again.

Wonderful. Sweetness, getting some milkiness (cream?) as well. Solid, not particularly roasty stout base. Incredible flavor for the ABV.

Pours dark brown, with a long lasting tan head. Aroma is richly of chocolate. Taste is sweet, of milk chocolate, and quite smooth. A very drinkable beer. Thumbs up!

Bottled, courtesy Narnad. Really dark brown with a thin, light brown head. Milk chocolate aroma is very pronounced, slightly roasty (reminiscent of s’mores), and a bit boozy. Flavor is a bit more heavy on the roast, which grows slightly in intensity. Finish is rather dry with notes of bittersweet cocoa and toasted pecans. There is a bit of hot alcohol in the middle, but not overly so.
