3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of coffee with slight acidic yogurt notes at the end. Looks thin when held to the light, and is practically clear when held to the light. Head is small unless poured vigorously. Flavors are bold but end abruptly. This has a nice combination of residual sweetness and cafe au lait. Definite iodine here too. The combination of flavors occasionally clashes, leaving a strange aftertaste. However, the creamy, silky palate makes up for what the beer lacks in other departments.

12oz bottle. Very good stout. I am usually not one for milk types, but this has a characteristic that is distinguished. Hard chocolate tones with a coffee linger. Pours very well and has the looks of something you’d take home to your parents!

Pours dark, aroma of coffee is present, not much of a head. Over-all the beer wasn’t bad , just not what I was expecting.

Pours a nice dark color, with a big creamy tan head. Aroma is lots of dark chocolate and coffee, delicious. Flavor is more of the same. Very good beer.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2009 probably my second favorite beer, next to young’s double choclate stout. this is another creamy/sweet stout, but totally different. very smooth, very creamy, very dark and rich. mild head, and no tracing to speak of. looks and tastes (as others said) almost like chocolate milk. very nice balance of malts in this one. this is a very drinkable beer, and one which i will continue to get from time to time. UTTERly delicious!!
