3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 11/24/2015 enjoyed in a Mad Elf tulip.
Look - A lot of sediment, it turns the dark brown body almost reddish brown. No lacing. No head left after a while. Head is tan when there. 4
Smell - Coke. Chocolate. Sweet. Raspberry.
Taste - Chocolate. Coke. Dr. Pepper. Sweet.
Feel - Not carbonated. Milky.
Overall - Crazy murkiness. One of the most pop forward beers I’ve had. Not something to write home about. Milk stouts have really stopped appealing to me.

aroma: coffee, cacao, roast grain acidity, woody vanilla, faint floral hops.
taste: coffee, faint cacao, roast grain acidic/astringent bite, woody vanilla.
much more stout-like than porter. cacao is mostly buried by dark roasted grain elements. Vanilla is more prominent, but rather sharp and woody (I am not a fan of madagascan vanilla).

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate chocolate, light vanilla, and a hint of licorice. It pours a dark brown with some orange highlights and a small beige head that quickly fades to a minimal film outlined by a thin ring. The flavor starts with moderate-heavy dark chocolate and cocoa. The finish has light-moderate vanilla with a hint of coffee and licorice. It’s medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

Pours coffee brown with a thin light tan head. Aroma features strong notes of cocoa and roast malt, and a hint of molasses. Flavor presents roast malt, cocoa, molasses, and a snippet of coffee. Body is firm, though fizz is fair to middlin’. Smuggle one down your pipes.
