3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Poured a muddy dark brown with a very slight red hue. The light brown head was suprisingly small yet frothy, which dissapated quickly with only a small residue remaining allowing for a fair amount of lacing on the glass.The aroma was nice and robust with a moderatly strong scent of dark bread malts and a sweet doughy yeast with hints of milk chocolate, molasses and a strong coffee presence. It tasted lighty sweet and flavorful with molasses and chocolate notes from the onset, then ended mildly biiter-sweet with a wonderfull strong note of coffee that lingered on the palate for a nice long while. Mouthfeel was creamy in texture and overall feel with the body being medium to full. Both were balanced very well and worked quite well together. Overall an excellent stout. Blending of the flavors was without a doubt perfectly balanced, although it could have been just a tad heavier in body.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nitro bottle. Pours dark amber, very nearly black, with little head but a little lacing. Smells of chocolate and malt, rich and appealing. Taste is a little less milk stout and more stout to me. Taste goes from something like molasses to slightly bitter. Overall it isn’t bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I poured this milk stout hard into a glass, dull and almost black in appearance with a small dark head. Initial aromas are sweet coffee and hints of chocolate. After the head clears, it leaves small traces on the glass. The sweet aroma disappears fast, and you are left with a subtle coffee smell. This milk stout is medium bodied and is mild tasting. initially sweet, but the coffee and caramel favors take over and continue on to the aftertaste. This beer has a seemingly high drinkability, and is absolutely delicious. Glad it isn’t too sweet.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured hard into a pint glass. Pours nearly black with a chocolate colored head, with a symphony of bubbles that eventually turn it into a frothy cream colored head. This beer is fun to watch settle into the glass. Aroma is milk chocolate, cream, coffee bean, and vanilla. Taste is cappuccino, roasted malts, and a hint of milk chocolate. Pretty much what you’d expect from the aroma. Palate is a little thinner than you’d expect but it’s velvety smooth going down. Overall, this beer is extremely enjoyable and one of my go-to beers when I want something I know is going to be a solid bet.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A creamy texture, with balanced notes of sweet dark chocolate, bitter coffee and roasted caramel malts above and enticing hop backbone. Meduim-bodied and less filling than more commercial stouts like Guiness, and at 30% higher abv.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Near black, pours a small creamy brown head that leaves a nice lace and has a lot of carbonation. Smells of coffee, malts, and a semi sour bitterness. Somewhat mild tasting, starts with a bitter coffee and finishes with a semi sweet toffee. Ok beer I would drink again if offered but probably won’t buy it.

Had this on nitro... Creamy and silky mouth feel. Not a complex taste but satisfying to enjoy. I have had this not on nitro and I think the nitro makes a difference.
