3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2007 Still my favorite local brew. I have to have at least one whenever I swing by the ole brewery. Sweet, chocolately, roasted malt taste. Very smooth going down. Maybe just a tad on the thin side, but still awesome nonetheless. Goes sour pretty quick so try to get one as fresh as possible!

Black with a toffee head. It's coffee-flavored, smooth but unfortunately a bit watery. OK, but not great.

deep brown, appears pretty much opaque. nice light brown head. typical stout in that the usual aromas and flavors are there, lots of coffee and chocolate, and the lactose is definitely detectable. atypical in that it's brewed so well. quite full bodied with a nice coffee aftertaste.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer has a nice milky bouquet that smells like a milky way candy bar in a good way. The head started out thick, but soon fell to a thin ring that is leaving some lace on the glass. This is a very dark beer almost opaque in my tallish half liter glass. The palate is very smooth and flavorful with a nice creaminess. The palate is drier than I was expecting, but the lactose does lend a tad bit of sweetness on the finish. I really like this beer a lot because it is a straightforward example of the style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured black with a tint of ruby red at the edges. Seemed thin on the pour and left a very small tan head. Aroma is a smoky roasted malt with coffee notes. Medium bodied and smooth with a crisp mouthfeel. Flavor is of roasted malt and slightly sweet with a dry finish. Nothing outstanding and could use more flavor in my opinion. Not bad though overall. Thanks to Slob for the sample.

Excellent sweet stout. Drank mine at the Lancaster Brewing Co. brewery. It was fresh, smooth, with excellent aroma and flavor. Better than any import including Sam Smith's stouts.

Dark in color. Not a bad beer. Had it at a beer festival in Pa. Very enjoyable. Rich in malt flavor. Had some roasty notes to it. Very good.
