3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Decent stout. Near black with a nice dark brown head that lingers for some time. Robust roasted coffee flavor with a slight hint of bitter sweetness. Mild oily mouth feel. Nothing spectacular but definitely not bad.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice roasty aroma, with hints of coffee and chocolate. Beer poured a rich opaque black color, with a medium brown head. Coffee flavor slightly dominates the chocolate hints, with a lactose taste similar to that in Mackeson Stout. A very good sweet stout!

Very dark with a faint ruby edge. Toasted barley and molassas aroma. Medium-bodied flavor with a smooth, sweet taste. Finish was mild and malty.

Bottle. Solid black color with an explosive light foamy cascading brown head. A chalky and chocolate aroma with some nuts. Given the robust head I wasn't surprised to find a spritzy palate that ends with a dry nut and dark roasted flavor. Not as rich as I expected. As it warmed the beer mellowed, the sweet chocolates were drawn out and planted firmly in a long finish. Thanks to Phillymonksman.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice stout with a dark brown head and a good lacing. Thick and black with a sweet chocolately flavor. Smoot and mellow tasting on the palate. Slightly bitter aftertaste with a strong roasted flavor. A very good stout. Obviously no milk included in this brew, but what would it taste like if it was?

Poured dark brown with some reddish hints here and there with a small light tan head and alittle lacing. Roasted chocolate milk aroma. Very smooth and creamy texture. Slight roasted character, very milkish tasting. Very refreshing. Can I get my daily dose of calcium from this?

A solid and consistent offering from Lancaster. Filmy head topping a dark, thick, "milky" brew with that great lactic sourness cutting through the dark, roasty flavors.
