2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Looks and tastes like milk chocolate...some strange spritziness in the mouthfeel that seemed out of place...some coffee notes...some surprisingly bitter hopping...but very thin-bodied, especially for a stout!

On tap. Served a blackish color with a nice tan head that lasted with ample lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Taste is same as aroma. Decent bitterness and a fairly dry finish. Moderate body, a bit of a gritty feel and not very robust.

Out of the sampler I had, this was one of the better beers. Pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate. Flavor is the same with a little bit of a nutty flavor as well. Not bad, but nothing amazing.
