2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown. Aroma is coffee and funkyness. Taste of roasted coffee and finishes with lactulose? Not really a big fan of this style. Body is a little light and nice chocolate and coffee flavors are mild. Leaves taste in mouth of a finished cigar.

Bottle. Black with a light tan 1 finger head. Aroma is espresso and lactose. Taste follows suit but adds a hint of chocolate. Balance seems a little off though. Espresso is a little too bitter. Palate is creamy and full. Close but a little off.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cola black with a bit of tan head. Aroma is not as coffee as I expected, and neither is taste. This isn’t the beer I expected from this brewer, but aside from expectations, it’s a fine enough beer. $8/22ox

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from State Line, 5/31/13
Aroma: The aroma is sweet and malty, with chocolate, brown sugar, milk, and a little roast
Appearance: It pours a cola black color with a small beige head and some light, spotty lace
Flavor: Tastes similar to the nose, though its a little thin, it’s still mostly sweet malts with light roast
Palate: The feel, like the flavor, is a bit thin, it has a soft, creamy feel to it, and a fairly short finish
Overall, this is a solid one, but it has a few flaws. The flavor just doesn’t carry through with quite enough oomph. Otherwise, it is a fine beer.

Sample from 65cl bottle courtesy of Travlr@post TdG tasting 04/2013.
Creamy coffee in democratic doses, subtle residual hop bitterness. Great roast, lactic element is indeed rather milk powder. smooth, entry-level recipe of a milk stout, one of my favourite styles.

Brune foncée, col beige léger.
Arôme malté, grillé, café léger suivi de bonnes notes grillées et lactose pour un bouquet tirant fortement sur le moka.
Palais est complexe, sec, malts variés grillés, café avec une douceur ajoutée venant du lactose. En toute fin de bouche un léger biscuité se fait présent, le tout sur une effervescence moyenne.
