Bottle. Pours black brown. Nice aroma, that smells like cream and coffee. Non aggressive flavor of lightly roasted coffee, lactose, chocolate with subtle hop bitterness. Finishes sweet and crisp. A respectable session brew or one to be enjoyed with ice cream or cake

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle)Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Initial flavor is a sweetish chocolate milk which fades into a coffee finish. Pretty smooth cause of the milk flavor. Pretty good, not amazing but it is a nice change up from the other stouts i’ve been drinking. The milk flavor is almost too much at first but after a couple of sips it isn’t as overpowering.

Tap @ Peach’s in Yellow Springs, OH. Dark pour, not quite opaque. Aroma is hidden initially, served too cold. By this point I was also fairly buzzed. But nevertheless, it had a roasty, chocolate aroma. Standard, not bad. Flavor is very smooth and chocolatey, slightly sweet. Good, rich tasting beer. Nice body. Well made, and highly drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2007 In the bottle at Bill B.’s birthday party. Ruby-black with a simply beautiful cascading head of down-pouring brown beer and up-flowing bubbles forming a light brown head. Has an extremely strong roasted aroma. Has a strong lactose sweet flavor. Light in hops with a slight sourness. Pretty delicious. UPDATE 6/2007: On tap at Max & Joe’s Left Hand tasting party. Black with a dark tan head. Great roasted aroma. This is thinner than the porter. A strong lactose sweetness emerges toward the warming end.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer introduces itself with the hearty aroma of sweet coffee. It is a black liquid with a dark hazel brown head. This solution enters the mouth thick and with a strong coffee taste. The palate enjoys a transformation that goes from mildly bitter to a lingering sweetness.
