Drop Off Service, NYC tap ($7): Pours cascading head, black, with beige looking foam: very pretty. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, hops. Taste is, as someone else noted, more like a dry stout than a sweet stout. Hop and roasted malt bitterness both present in good effect. Nice and creamy body. Quite good.

Good milk stout. Carton does a nice job balancing their beers - not too sweet and pairs nice with the heavy malt.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2013
Location: Cask at Barcade (Jersey City), 6/1/13
Aroma: It has a roasted malt nose, with coffee, milk, and chocolate
Appearance: The pour is brown with fairly minimal head/lace
Flavor: The taste is roasted over sweet, malty, light bitter finish
Palate: The body is medium-plus, smooth, creamy cask feel, and dry finish
I liked this one. I found out later (thereís a video) that the roasty over sweet was completely the intention, in which case they did a very nice job of making the beer they were trying to make.
