Poured a dark brown, almost black, with a nice finger of cream-colored head.
Smells of dark malts and chocolates.
The taste was chocolate, coffee, and dark malts. Really good.
Heavy and creamy in the mouth, very smooth.
Definately goes down smooth, I could have downed a few more of these if I wasn’t just sampling.
Serving type: on-tap

Now this is a good stout. The milk sugars do seem to mellow the usual stout roastiness, but I found it quite enjoyable to drink. It is a very dark opaque color with a finger or two of tan head. Cellar temperature seemed ideal as the flavor just kept improving as the beer warmed a bit after coming out of the frig. A bit of sweetness there, but the roasted malt is still the predominate flavor and aroma.

355 ml bottle. Thanks to ekstedt. Deep brownish black with a large, stable beige head. Roasted malty aroma with tones of smoke, caramel, chocolate and raisins. Tasting reveals more of the roasted aroma. The taste is sweet and full, with a smooth mouthfeel and perfect, mild carbonation.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2008 Has a sweet smell, faint though but pours to a thick, dark brown, almost pitched black. Smooth with a thick malty taste, sweet. Not overpowering in any sense nor bitter in any manner. Great beer
