3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft in a sampler at the brewpub. Pours a deep brown with a small beige head that leaves a thin sheet of lace in the glass. Aroma of lactose, chocolate, roast, tobacco, fudge, and nuts. The flavor is mostly the same but has some cola sweetness. Light-medium bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a roasty, sweet mouthfeel. Good sweet stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap sample. Poured a black color with an average fizzy tan head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy dark chocolate malt aroma. Medium to heavy dark chocolate flavor with a medium to heavy dark chocolate finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a dry smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a good rich beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark beer with a thin beige head. Nose of roasted grains and molasses. This is a sweet beer with lots of brown sugar and molasses and lactose. Some roasted grains, toast, and something green and ashy in the finish. Sweet, tastey stout.

Draft to taster at the brewery. Looks good for the style; black with light beige lacing. Smells and tastes sweet and malty with a bit of roast and a nice, (somewhat) smooth finish. Good beer.

Great mix of coffee and roasted malts for aroma. Good sweetness and smooth carbonation for a milk stout. Delicious flavors of coffee, chocolate, and roasted barley. Overall an excellent brew!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Dayton Beer Company. I really liked this stout. Pretty textbook dark brown, stout appearance with a firm, bubbly, brown head. Big aroma of coffee that reminds me of espresso powder and a hint of lactose in the background. The flavor matches the aroma with lots of cold coffee and a strong malt backbone. Well made
