3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance- The beer pours a black/deep brown color with a one finger off-white head of foam. The head has a great level of retention, slowly fading to leave a great level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of a sweeter caramel and milk chocolate smell with nice notes of crème. Along with these smells comes a lighter coffee aromas and a decent showing of a roasted smell.
Taste – The taste starts out drier then would have been anticipated for a milk stout but not too dry. It starts with a rather strong roasted malt flavor with a moderate showing of caramel and sweeter milk chocolate flavors. These sweeter flavors lose a bit of ground more toward the end but are replaced by a bit more roastedness and a little more dark chocolate and coffee. With all the transitions and tastes that occur, leaving a rather rich (for a stout of only 4.9 % abv) roasted and moderately sweetened dark flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the lighter to average side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. Both are rather nice for the mix of roasted and sweeter flavors of the brew and create a nice base for the flavors to be well sensed, all while still maintaining the easy drinking feel.
Overall- A rather tasty, somewhat, but not overly, drier-milk stout, which packs a whole lot of flavor into a little bit of abv. This is a rather nice more winter style, sessionable brew.

In the can @ home. I thought this was from Secret Krampus but honestly, it probably came from BoostIPA. Either way, thanks! Pours a deep brown appearance with a pretty nice sized dark brown head. Milk sugar, dark chocolate, some roast, and coconut in the aroma. Light mouth feel. A touch of metal. Coconut / vanilla milk flavor. Moderately high sweetneess and bitterness. Kind of a bland, grassy hop bitterness. Not all that good but it could be worse. Not sure what the "farmhouse" in the name is all about.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Chocolate aroma, pours an opaque black with a thin light tan head. Mild chocolate milk taste, mild roasted finish. This is less sweet then most examples of the style, which makes it better in my estimation.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not bad. Pours black with average head and a little splotchy lace. The aroma is coffee and malt, chocolate, a hint of bitterness. The flavor is pretty good, but understated. A little watery up front, actually, but some rich malt in the finish. A little thin, but decent.
