3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
BBD 3/09/15. Very dark amber pour, but not opaque, with a dark ruby element. Below average head, lacing and retention. Very weak nose of roast and chocolate over a mineral note. Nice medium body with a touch of creamy texture. Below normal carbonation with minimal effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is outstanding - intense, balanced and complex. It begins with bitter dark chocolate that flows into a blend of light roast and coffee. The middle is moderate hop bitterness over a light sweetness with nut and grain characteristics. The finish is somewhat clean with a slightly astringent note.

First taste was actually more disappointing than this current rating. Expected much more taste and character. Rather flat in those aspects all the way around

12oz bb11/2014. Clear copper-brown liquid pour, decent crema. Aroma of bayleaf, diluted caramel and light coffee roast translates into a herbaceous, metallic milk chocolate, liquorice root lemonade, toast, with very modest sweetness or lustre besides distracting green/wet hop notes. Thin palate, and not that rich a taste for the abv investment: a far cry from their sumptuous milk stout.
