Bottle. Despite the description, the head is not snow-white; it’s a lovely, lacy cinnamon brown, topping beer that is jet-black with brown highlights and as opaque as a mathematics doctoral thesis. The nose is chocolate, coffee, and cinnamon; the milk is more milk chocolate than pure dairy, but it’s definitely got an element of richness. What hit me first was the mouthfeel -- round, smooth, and mouth-coating, like rich cream; there’s chocolate, cinnamon, nutmeg, coffee, all conveyed by that glossy, velvety mouthfeel. Incredibly impressive. Bitterness on the close, and more spice. Very, very well done.

Pours a very dark brown almost black color with off-white head. Vanilla, cinnamon and oak are very present on the nose along with some cocoa; follows onto the palate. There is a lot going on in this one and ends with a bit of warming from the cinnamon spice.

Growler from Craft and Growler. Dark brown pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor of this beer are very nice. I get some heavy chocolate and roasted malt notes in the aroma. These notes are also present in the flavor, with the welcome addition of some cinnamon, lactose and vanilla notes. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice beer.

Coffee nose, sweet fudgey malts, lots of richness. Sweet, milky vanilla coffee character. Tons of sugar, rich body, maybe too sweet for me but it is a good dessert beer.
