3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Bottle from unknown, via Dan S. Pours a dark black, little to no tan head. Aroma slightly roasty, milk chocolate, some coffee. Body medium roasty, some sweetness and chocolate malt. Not bad, but I prefer Split Shot.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice! Very bitter and toasty. Pours black with great head and lacing. Mocha head. Quite a bitter finish and lactose adds texture but not a huge element to aroma. Bottle.
