3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
FROM NOTES: October 21, ’13.
A: Semi-sweet chocolate, milk chocolate, nuts and coffee.
A: Pours a nearly pitch black a two finger khaki shade head.
T: Follows the nose, albeit slightly subdued. Roast grains lead the way with firm cocoa notes but they aren’t as decadent as the nose suggested. Some dark fruits, toasty, nutty and earthy hop notes also present.
P: Medium body and a lot of carbonation for a stout.
O: This is a good beer, not a great one, I was expecting a little more in the after-taste and a bigger mouth-feel and the somewhat sweet taste I have had in other milk stouts was not there.

March madness 2015. The beer has a nice aroma of roast coffee and some slightly sweet caramel malt. The taste balances the harsher dark roasted malt with the caramel and residual sugar in the beer. Hops is complementary and the finish is dry but not bitter. Nice beer.

Bottle to a pint. Dark brownish black hue with thin off white head and lacing. Sweet caramel notes with dark roast coffee and grain. Roasty malted sweetness... A bit thin in the mouthfeel, nice one...

Sample glass at tasting.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy fairly dark brown to black color with a thin layer of white foaminess to the head.
The smell had a nice roasty to sweet blend of chocolate to coffee.
The taste was mainly sweet with an ample amount of roasty sweet coffee to chocolate intermingling between. There’s a slight sweet milky chocolate aftertaste leading to a sweet sticky finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sipping quality about it. There’s a nice carbonation to the beer.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good sweet stout that I would have again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
4 ounce taster at brewdo. Pours a dark rich brown with mocha colored head. Notes of coffee and roasted nuts on nose with maybe a touch of cocoa. Taste follows suit, but it felt like it was missing the creaminess I expect as mouthfeel from a milk stout.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an opaque, very dark brown with a lovely, fluffy, tan-brown head. Moderately dark roasted malt on the nose with some lactose and a note of plastic on the nose. Smooth, nearly unassuming palate. Nutty, sorghum, unflavored cocoa, and lactose flavors.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[on tap at Local, PHI airport]
Coffee with milk aroma with some light vanilla roasted barley notes and licorice accents. Clear garnet-black that is nearly opaque under a lacy, thin white patch. Delicate coffee and vanilla flavour with just a hint of hops flavour and a subtle bitterness that is just enough for balance. Light body and leaning towards crisp, medium carbonation.
