Pours dark brown/black with a medium tan head. Aroma has cocoa and a touch of peat. Flavor follows suit and adds a layer of brown sugar/caramel. Mouthfeel is light and creamy with a slightly sweet finish at first that lingers to dry burnt bitterness.

Poors very dark with a light brown head. Aroma has roasted malt and bread. Taste is sweet with roasted malt. Not much of the milk sugar, more than a usual stout.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nitro Bottle. Aroma is sweet roasty chocolate toffee coffee. Appearance is almost black with a hint of red. Really no head. Taste is rich sweet chocolate malt forward. Plenty of toffee and coffee notes. Palate is medium and smooth, sweet roast lingers. Overall a nice beer but I believe the carbonation was bad on mine. The bottle says to "pour hard" and I did but it had really no head at all. I feel that this influenced the beer. Not really any creaminess, just came across as flat. Still very nice flavors and one of the better sweet stouts I have had. Sweet but still enough complex roast to keep things from being cloying or boring. Would be rated much higher with proper carbonation.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
How have I not rated this before? Black-brown with 2mm light-brown, super-fine, yet frothy head that fades slowly. Aroma is coffee, toast, dark chocolate, milk, some herbs with a hint of mint. Body is oily, somewhat syrupy, fine light carbonation with no burn. Flavor is a giant roastedness with bits of coffee, wood, light bbq, leather. Semi-sweet malt, refreshing grasses. Really very delicious.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nitro-labeled bottle, served in tulip glass. Sweet chocolate aroma, almost black with creamy tan head. Milk chocolate and toffee flavor, thin-bodied. Medium finish, not cloying. Better to let it warm a bit. Not enough body for my stout preferences, but quite good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Very dark brown with a tan skim of a head. Smells of coffee, dark chocolate, and smoke. Heavy body, medium-high carbonation, and creamy texture. I get a lot of chocolate and coffee flavor. It is sweet but nicely balanced with some subtle bitterness. Really nice overall.
