3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black with a half finger of beige head. Aroma is milk chocolate, very light roasted malt. Taste is super sweet up front with some roasted notes coming through in the finish. Medium body that feels just right. Overall an excellent sweet stout.

No complaints. But I do prefer a wee but heavier Stout, like an imperial stout. Everything is great with this brew but I just like my stouts a bit chewy.
