Pours nice reddish black with minimal foam. Nice aroma, sweet dark malt, some bitter coffee notes with a hint of chocolate. Maybe just a faint touch of sweet potato starchy sweetness in the nose. Taste is surprisingly thin for what was in the nose. I can only guess that may be a factor of working with lactose? Anyway, not bad... Not as good as I had hoped.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2014 Appearance: this beer is pitch black, even when held up to the light it’s only transparent on the outermost edges, pours with a large creamy tan head
Aroma: sweet, heavy cream, strong coffee, chocolate,
Taste: sweet, coffee, dark roasted malt, has a very light bitter finish, I can taste the milk too
Palate: this is where this beer shines in my opinion, has a very soft velvety mouthfeel, minimal coffee bitter aftertaste, average carbonation
Overall: the more stouts I drink the more I like them, this one has a low abv and would actually be a session stout,

Cask. Pours a deep, dark brownish black with a huge beige head. Subtle earthy malt aroma. Flavor is lightly sweet wit ha toasted malt thing going and lots of lactic smoothness and creaminess. Didn’t get much of the sweet potatoes. Very, very smooth and creamy on the palate ... almost too smooth. You could drink this stuff like water. Very tasty.

Very dark espresso. Almost black with very little tan head. I have a bit of a cold, but smell absolutely nothing for a nose. Medium-heavy body with good carbonation. Tastes of lactose, some smoke, leather. Not over-bearing, but pretty darn nice. With a 5% abv, I’d be happy to try this many more times today.
