3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16oz can. Deep brown black body. Thin, fading beige head. Smooth and sweet, a pretty enjoyable Sweet Stout. The vanilla and lactose smooth out all the big specialty malts. A little overly sweet, not much going on besides the sweetness, no depth. Tasty, but not that impressive of a venture.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 oz can @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque black color with a smooth 1" brown head, wide bands of lace. Nice aroma of chocolate and malt. Taste is semi-sweet chocolate malt that grows more bitter and coffee-like as it nears the finish. Simple in design, but, oh, so delicious. Highly recommended.

16oz can poured into a shaker. The aroma is a combination of milk chocolate, coffee, and grains with a light vanilla touch late. It pours a dark, opaque black with a light, tan creamy head that reduced unevenly. A dense, sheet lace is left behind as well as a thick, foamy ring with a fuzzy, solid surface. The taste is a chocolatey, medium sweet and bitter balance. The oily texture has a medium body and a prickly carbonation. Dark chocolate and vanilla are prevalent throughout the drink and on the finish with some cereal and a touch of caramel. The chocolate is dominant and somewhat heavy and lingering on the aftertaste.
