3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer looks great with a very dark black color, an off brown color foamy head, and good lacing on the glass. The smell is decent with a nice blend of coffee and toasted malts. The beer tastes decent with a milky start and a mild coffee finish to it. The mouthfeel is decent with the beer being well carbonated and the taste leaving you with a coffee taste lingering. Overall, a decent milk stout but nothing that will overwhelm you.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.355l bottle from Whole Foods, Tribeca. A really deep dark brown one, as good as black in the glass and it has a nice medium sized lingering brown grey head. Smells really nice. Oaty chocolate with some sweet licorice and lots of coffee. Really nice nose. Yeah, there is a good amount of coffee in the taste also. Has this been added coffee perhaps? Good oily on the mouthfeel and average on the carbonation level. Sweet chocolate before it ends with a little bit of blackberry juice and traces of cardboard in the finish. Not bad at all. 20.06.2013

Opaque black - brown beer, small tan head. Smooth palate, a little soft. Lactose sweet malt, a little cream. Nice super mild roast. Trace of dark chocolate. Semi dry finish. Fresh tasting malty beer. Not bad!

Drought. Dark brown with small beige foamy head, very little fruity aroma, high carbonation, cherry-caramel taste, average finish. Little weak for a milk stout.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2013-04-30. Black body with a modest brown head. 3++ Aroma is modest, mild dark malt, modest roast and chocolate undertones. 6+ Flavour is pleasant, sweet malty vote with pleasant bitterness. Lingering coffee like roast in the finish and aftertaste. Smooth average plus bodied palate, modest carbonation. Not entirely to my taste. On tap at Liquids and Solids, Lake Placid

(bottle). Pours a brown-black complexion with quickly dissipating head. Well roasted malt flavor. Decent palate. Not bad but not a stand out amongst the class. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Helmers' in Hoboken, NJ. Poured into a narrow pils mug.
Dark brown pour with a fine tan head. Lacing is pretty decent
Nose is chocolate and roast coffee.
Flavor is roasty, coffee, chocolate with a lactose sugary finish. No hop character. The finish starts sweet but ends surprisingly dry.
A little thin on the mouthfeel, but not bad.
A decent example of the style from a brewery I'd not tried before.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Various kegs and bottles. Pours jet black with nice brown head. Aromas of chocolate, light coffee, sweet vanilla, and a lactic twang. The flavor is super smooth and full. Chocolate, roasted malts, and a sweet finish make this one a winner. Not super filling like some stouts can be, but just perfect.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A dark brown appearance with some carbonation. Strong coffer and some chocolate aroma. A balance of coffee and beer flavor that ends on the coffee side.
