COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imagine Robert DeNiro sitting in your darkened parlour near the fire in his Louis Cyphre persona smoking a Tuscan cigar. This may be the beer with which to save (or lose) your soul. Dried fruit flavors entwined with smoky pepper and licorice embossed on roasty malt sweetness open on your tongue as the slow warmth of chilis creep up on your tongue and throat, finishing in an herbal smoke ring flourish.

Pours inky black with thin chocolate head, aroma of chocolate and some coffee. Flavor is chocolate, anise, smoke and some bitter coffee, chile pepper flavor isn’t there, but if you wait a minute after you sip, you feel the heat creep in the back of your throat and on the tongue, pretty good stuff.

On tap during the Milk Stout Nitro release party during 2011 GABF. Heavy black with a dissipating head. Big rich aroma of roasted black malt, licorice, and some dark roasted pepper tone going on, leaving an herbal spicy finish on the nose. Texture is perfectly smooth and velvety. Flavor has some roasted black malts with subtle chocolate, a lot of kilned dark cereal grains, smoke, and beef jerkey. The pepper tone is kinda faint, and really plays of the smoked malt to create that beef jerkey vibe. Not really my thing but still well done!

Nearly black with red-brown highlights at the edges and a tan head,. Decent retention and fairly good lacing. The smoky aroma features dark roasted malts with a subtle hint of chile pepper. Surprisingly sweet and floral/fruity. Quite complex. ABV rather apparent. Mildly bitter taste with plenty of roasted malts and a moderate dose of chile pepper: enough to produce a clear flavor contribution and some heat (just short of a burn). Some coffee and smoke in the lasting, but not especially enjoyable, finish. Feels a bit thin and has heat from the chilies. Good carbonation excepting it makes the body feel lighter than it would with less carbonation.
