3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle, pours black wth a tan head. Aroma is chocoate malt, coffee, vanilla, brown sugar. The backbone has a lingering sweetness that threatens to, but thankfuly doesn’t, take over the palate. Body is full, rich, texture is creamy, the finish is sweet but ends dryly and abruptly. Carbonation lively at first but settles.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle into snifter. Dark dark brown, almost black, with kind of thin but sticky tan head that diminishes quickly. Aroma is very sugary, and actually smells of milk. Taste is heavy on the lactose and also very sweet, but has some roastiness and caramel and coffee as well. Medium body with nice creamy feel. Pretty complex flavor. Very extreme for the style, super sweet and very toasty. Not at all thin or watery like a lot of other lower abv milk/sweet stouts. Probably my favorite beer of the style.
