4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2012 thin runny pour. very dark with a small tan head. excellent coffee, roasted barley flavor. milk sugar adds a perfect sweetness. mild aroma of chocolate and coffee. extremely smooth. it would be easy to drink lots of these.
nitro bottle rate. beautiful nitro pour with a tall, creamy dark tan head. has the nitro pour appearance but it settles a little faster than with a widget or from the tap. palate is creamy and full. flavor is the same as the original. an incredible beer just got better! collectively, this is one of my favorite beers of all time.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A black appearance with a beige head and good lacing. A milk chocolate and somewhat nutty aroma. The flavor consists of chocolate, cappucino, coffee creamer, and some dark fruit. The beer balances out the sweetness and bitter aspects well. The palate is somewhat thin but the finish is very smooth with a hint of bitterness. A good stout.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
A dark beer with a hint of red, small light brown head. Very enjoyable. Aroma is of chocolate and faint raspberry-ish fruit, flavour is roasty. Thick on the palate but not necessarily smooth. This is a good beer overall!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Looks like a standard dark dark stout with not too much of a head. Smells of roasty chocolatey nutty sweetness, very pleasant. The mouthfeel is pretty decent, not as full in the mouth, but "sticky" and clingy. The flavor is more subdued than the aroma, however good roasty chocolate sweetness with really no bitterness, but maybe a touch of sour? Super drinkable, a great session beer for a stout.

I really like these mils stouts. And it does my body good, so I hope.
This one is fairly light- bodied, it has aromas of burtnt malt and a hint of chocolate. It pours dark with a nice brown head. It helps to let the beer warm up a bit, then the slightly sweet flavor comes out better. A nice beer for a cold night, as it was in Santa fe as I tried it.

Bottle. Dark brown beer with a thin mocha colored head. Coffee and roasted malt aroma. Roasted malt flavor with some lingering sweetness. Some floral hops. Smooth, medium bodied. Flavor left me wanting a bit more of something.
