On tap at brewery. Pours black with a tan head. Roasted malt aroma with cocoa and coffee. Flavor is roasted malt with caramel notes, black coffee, and chocolate followed by lactose sweetness and a earthy hop finish. Had this one multiple times over the years. This brew is a true classic.

355ml bottle from The Perfect Pour. Pours black with a thick brown head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is primarily roasted malt, a little coffee. Flavor is much more coffee, some chocolate develops more slowly, mildly sweet and not really bitter at all. Very smooth but a little thin.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Medium brown, nitro head. Has a massive vanilla nose and taste. Not balanced and out of style. Garbage example, nothing but fake vanilla. Not what the style is.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Jet black pour with minimal head and lacing. The aromas include chocolate, roasted malt and black licorice. Initially the flavors show a nice, almost burnt roasted malt and milk chocolate. Nice creamy mouth feel, a little sticky and slick especially for a 5.3% ABV beer. Smooth, dry bitter finish. Top notch regular milk stout

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle. Translucent black color has a minimal tan head that disapates quickly. Aroma has a roasted malt and mocha nuance. Reminiscent of Cocoa Puffs cereal. Flavor follows the nose with a nod toward Oveltine and " Black Coffee In Bed". There is an underlying creamy milk chocolate character here. Easily drinkable and quite tasty. Like a Tootsie Roll in a glass.
