3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rating #70 for 2012. 7/1/12, 12 oz bottle cold from a tulip glass. Warm aroma of cinnamon and sugar like a freshly baked scone. Opaque nearly black liquid with a 1 inch tan head that quickly fades and leaves tightly bubbled lacing. Taste was sweet and creamy, a well balanced common stout. Palate, starts with a high carbonation mellows to medium as it warms, finishes thin.

Enjoyed on tap at St Vitus in Brooklyn, NY. I'm really liking this one. Appearance is a moderate pitch black with a thin white rim. Aroma is a nice mixture of dark chocolate and cocoa with a bit of lactose. Taste is fantastic, nicely balanced between lactose and chocolate. Good stuff!

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Winooski Beverage Warehouse. Aroma: chocolate, roast, toast. App: black-brownish, small brown head with lacing. Taste and palate: medium sweet, medium body, average to high carbonation almost like Coca-Cola, watery and minimal bitter finish. Overall: nice aroma, taste is good but the palate is a tad unpleasant due to high carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle... Pours nearly black with traces of burnt orange and a small, creamy, cappuccino head. The aroma is lightly smoky with a facet of fresh bandage and a redeeming note of vanilla. Full bodied with soft carbonation. The flavor is lightly roasty, watery and thin. Finishes mildly nutty. Not much going on here.

Roasted Malty chocolate aroma with some sweetness. Taste is a nice stout with a smooth milky sweet finish. A nice milk stout for sure. Well balanced, flavorful and just a well made milk stout.
