smooth-drinking, late-winter wonder. We’ve crafted this English-styled stout using roasted malts and a healthy dose of lactose sugar to produce a creamy-rich beer with hints of roasted chocolate.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark brown blackish color with a tan head. Well carbonated. Notes of milk, milk chocolate and roast. Sweet up front, creamy with a pop of carbonation. Roasted notes dominate along with the lactose. Moves in and out of chocolate notes, but very light. Light bodied beer, not great, or sessionable, but not cloyingly sweet, so thats good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A- Coffee, chocolate, roasty.
A- Black color, dark liquid, tan head.
T- Coffee, chocolate, bitter cocoa, roasty, slightly sweet, balanced.
P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, roasty finish.
O- This sweet stout has a lot of coffee flavor and lots of chocolate. Not as creamy as I would have expected it to be but the sweetness from all the sugar is definitely present.

Not the worst beer I've ever had, but I definitely don't want to have it again. Kinda crappy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Certainly sweeter than other stouts, but that isn’t necessarily a good thing. Different and a refreshing departure from other stouts, but the favors don’t lend to more than wanting 6 to 8 oz.

@ South Denver Beer Fest 2013. Clear heavy dark brown with a thin foamy light-khaki head. Aroma has some creaminess and a bit of roasted dark cocoa. Nice flavor of sweet dark chocolate, a bit of vanilla and a gentle creaminess. Sweet, but not overtly so. Just a bit roasty. Bit of nougat as well. Enough hop bitterness to balance, which I honestly could have done without.
