An impressive offering, full mouthfeel and bitter, semisweet chocolate, with a slight bit of tartness that I expect from milk stouts. The best I’ve had from them, thus far.

Creamy stout with perfect sweetness and chocolate flavor. Slight bitterness. Very roasty tasting. Could be a dessert beer, but doesn't have to be. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from Sam’s, Durham. Dodgy label but a pleasantly surprising beer. Thick, chewy-looking pour with a potent cafe au lait head. Nose isn’t as overwhelmingly sweet as I’d expected, and the flavors are fairly modest as well (definitely a compliment here). Body is terrific, nicely smooth and velvety. And on top of an enjoyable, moderately roasty base beer, there’s a really pleasant combination of slight lactic notes and dark fruit. Good one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Headkeeper: This one pours a very dark opaque brown color. There was a dense tan head that lingers and leaves some lacing. The aroma is lighter than expected. Chocolate, some roastiness and a hint of sweetness. Some milkiness also. The taste is nice. There was a milky/silky mouthfeel. The taste has chocolate malts, some roastiness, a hint of citrus malts and a bit of lactose. Nice.

Pours a dark, oily brown-black, with minimal head. Fairly strong burnt-chocolate aroma. Flavor is a combination of coffee, licorice, chocolate, burnt grain, raisin. Pretty complex. Sweet finish.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the source. Dark brown, almost black with frothy tan head. Aroma is light, sweet cocoa/chocolate milk. Flavor is faint roasted malt with some chocolate and mild lactose sweetness. Overall, pretty thin and elements not working together well.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle: pours an oily opaque black with mahogany edges and a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a lightly sweet toasty malty nose with some cocoa and dark chocolate. Starts with decent fullness and toasty malts with a good amount of cocoa and a touch of raisins before a drier bittersweet finish. Pretty smooth and well-balanced.
