3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 12oz bottle into an English pint glass. This stout poured a deep black color with a one-finger thick, dark tan head that quickly faded away. Some light lacing was left around the glass. The aroma of the brew was made up of milk chocolate, coffee, and some light hops. The flavor consisted mainly of creamy milk chocolate, some light coffee notes, and also just a touch of light piney bitterness at the finish. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied and creamy with light carbonation. A very nice sweet stout.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2008 Very smooth and creamy. Repeatably drinkable with definite chocolate and nut flavors. Good but also doesn’t "wow" me.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark brown/amber with a small but lasting tan head that leaves some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Taste is the same as aroma with a small amount of residual sweetness. Medium full mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness. Simple but good.

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2008 From the draught it poured a nice black color with a thin tan head. The aroma is of big roasted and dark malts with a hint fo chocolate in there. The taste was much the same with a lot of creamy chocolate and some nuts coming through with the roasted malts. It had a very nice thick creamy mouthfeel that was real easy to drink with a slight bitterness at the end. The creamy chocolate flavor was left behind in the aftertaste. Really good flavor and a solid milk stout.

Dark with a thick off white foam. Lovely dark chocolate, malt and cereal aroma. Sweet chocolaty malt and coffee taste, latte at that. Slightly thin on the palate though, must be skimmed milk.

Pours black, with a thick, foamy, well-retained light brown head. Pretty big roasty aroma, dark malts, cream, and mild chocolate notes are detectable. Very creamy mouthfeel, alot of roasted malts, nuts, creamy chocolate, with very mild bitterness showing up in the finish. Leaves a nice little chocolatey flavor in the aftertaste. Solid milk stout. Nice representation.

Pours big and black with a huge off white head. Aroma is cocoa and coffee beans. Taste like chocolate milk with a hint of coffee bitterness. Aftertaste is nice and clean, a cool change from over hoppy ales.
