Nose is of lactose and sweet sweat. Pours a nice ruby brown and sits in glass with little head or legs. Sweet body with semi sweet crisp patent finish. A nice surprise at the store from Left hand.

Bottle. A very deep red color makes this beer look black with a fine brown head to cap it off. Aroma is heavy roasted coffee malt and milk chocolate, pretty strong and almost crosses the line into the unforgivable salted meat aroma. Almost. Flavor is sweet mollasses on the tongue originally, moves on to hazelnut coffee and then leaves a sweet acidic and nutty touch. Along with a good mouthfeel makes this sweet stout really top notch.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very dark brown with hints of garnet and a fairly small, tan, fizzy-pillowy head with moderate longevity and minimal, but nice, lace. Nose is milk chocolate, oatmeal, minor coffee notes, and hints of hazlenut. Flavor is milk chocolate, dark caramels, moderately low bitterness due mostly to the coffee hints, and a touch of hazlenut still. Palate is moderately light, lively, but quite silky. Fnishes short and mostly sweet with dark caramels and a lingering hazlenut note. Nice, solid, drinkable sweet stout from a local brewery. The beer thrives off of its texture and nice lactic notes creating a smooth, easy drinking stout.

Black pour. Halo of lace is left behind after the tan head quickly fades. Coffee & roasted malt on the nose, also hints of sweetness. Even, full mouthfeel. Subtle coffee/chocolate flavor. Slightly sweet finish with a bit of bitterness. Very smooth and easy drinking.

Dark stout, 2 fingers tan head. smelled of malt and raisins. This was no where near as thick as i had expected (and hoped for) Taste is thin taste of malt, toasted choco, and carmel, doesn’t taste as complex as i had thought either. good stout just expected more. probably wouldn’t buy again.

Bottle Black pour with decent light head. Quick thinning, but good lacing. Light aroma of sweet roasted malt. Very sweet flavor, can even taste a bit of milk. Very thin mouthfeel though. Good, but not great.

Part of a bottle. Black with thin head. Roasted, chocolate and caramel. Quite thin for a stout and quite low alcohol which is good for a change.
