Nicely balanced. Avoids being sickly sweet like so many Imperials. Not heavy, matches well with lighter entrees.

Super inky/silky sweet black stout without the prune flavor that steers me away from beers of such kind. Very sweet, but not cloying.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12-oz. bottle. Pours dark brown with no head. Sweet burnt marshmallow aroma (like making s’mores). Sweet milk chocolate, marshmallow, vanilla, and heavy burnt bark mix together for an interesting flavor for a milk stout. Very roasty, dry palate. Nice; it certainly stands apart from a typical sweet stout.

Bottle, I was torn about this one, as I took the first sip, I thought "ack, this doesnt fit well at all" but that was my fault, I was trying it too cold.. as it warmed it transformed and flavors melded much better, I still think a 9% milk stout is high, but these are sweet savory dairy, lactose sweetness that is pretty nice.

Dark beer with only a slick of a tan head. Sweet nose with some burnt grains and alcohol. Lots of molasses sweetness, burnt toast, chocolate, and some sweetened coffee. Big, sweet stout.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Had this more times than I can remember. Pours a very dark brown color edging on black. Opaque. Tall foamy tan head. Aroma is very chocolaty with oak, vanilla, roast and sweet milk chocolate. Flavor is very full, roasty, malty, big chocolate malt flavor. Finishes with a coating of the tongue. One of the best things they do.
