Tap @ Clyborn. A milk-chocolaty, lactosey sweet stout. Velvety mouthfeel. Chocolate/malt aroma. Good but not pushing any boundaries.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap at the Marcey St. location. Could not tell a significant difference between this beer and the rye stout I had prior to it. The aroma was chalky and roasty and the flavor was mild roast, light chocolate with a very creamy texture. nice stout.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at StoutFest. Poured a darker brown with a loose-bubbled beige head. Heavily-roasted sweet milky sugars in the aroma, sweet and darker chocolates, and some espresso emerged with warmth. Flavor was quite enjoyable... sweet milky chocolate, a faint hint of citrus, and some dark fruit in there, all with a dry burnt roast to it. Medium-bodied... drier and refreshing.. left grainy chocolate notes at the long finish.
