On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear cola brown to black with a thin tan head. Chocolate and cinnamon on the nose. Spice and cocoa. Medium bodied, cinnamon and spice dusty chocolate, cocoa. Big roast and cocoa with a lot of cinnamon bitterness. Almost acrid with the amount of spice obscuring everything.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared by Felipe. Tasting bottle #3. Pours clear deep mahogany, approaching black, medium fizzy tan head that dissipates very quickly and leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is cocoa, cinnamon, tart oak tannins, a bit of chili pepper. Flavor is light sweet and lightly tart, oaky acetic notes bring some sourness; a bit of basement funk present as well, along with mushroom (!) and lots of tobacco. Light body, high carbonation. Based on the deScription I would have to say this one is milking along an infection of some sort, but in any case it ain’t nothing to write home about.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle from clarkvv in trade. aroma was of a milk stout; nice dark pour; low carbonation. taste was subdued is the best word; nice to drink but nothing stood out for me - unlike most milk stouts, this was light on lactic and sweetness (good thin); there was some slight heat; I never got vanilla.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottleshare thanks to Beechner224. Nose is strong virgin oak and slightly smokey. Pour is pitch black. Flavor is mostly vegetal with a slight heat. No cinnamon or vanilla really. Ok but just mediocre. Not really flavorful. No wow factor.
