3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours dark with a nice tan head. Nice sweet aroma and very inviting. The taste is a little harsh upfront. A little sour in the middle. Good beer, but not what I expect from a milk stout.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the July 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a medium sized dark tan head that left good lacing. The aroma was bitter malts, port wine, vanilla, anise and cocoa. The flavor was port wine, vanilla, cream, anise, cocoa, coffee and lactose. The finish was long with port wine, vanilla and anise lingering. Creamy and thick body. Very nice.
