continuing my review of this style. not liking it. good aroma with faint chocolate, roast and ever so slight chocolate roast. taste is the norm for this stye and the lactose is almost astringent and just doesn’t work for me

pours almost pitch black with a medium sized mocha color head. the aroma is dark roasted malts and lots of sweet milk chocolate. there is also some hints of caramel and brown sugar. the taste is very sweet and similar to aroma. this is an outstanding beer and i recommend giving this one a try.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Aroma is a dark stout with a little sweetness. Appearance is black with a little tan head. Taste is a dry, dark oatmeal stout. That is about it. Nothing really stands out, beside the sweetness. Palate is a dry dark. Overall, a good stout.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Deep brown, thin to moderate frothy tannish head, spotty lacing. Old dark pitted fruit, a little stale and prune like. Minor lactose or chocolate. Very pale roasted malts, sweet, a little acrid, light lactose presense, with a slightly chalky backside. Moderate body and mouthfeel. Not the old fruity nose, but a softer Milk Stout that seems a little tired. Has a touch of pruniness that lingers. Tiz okay, but not as sweet and velvety as others. Thanks Bill!

Bottle from Rosebud Butternuts. Pours dark brown black with a dark tan head. Aroma is chocolate and roasted dark malt. Nearly burnt. Full bodied. Flavor is very dark chocolate and dark malt. I’m not getting coffee, I think. Pretty dry. Very, very tasty. Sort of like baking chocolate in the finish. Nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle in an English pint. Pours very dark brown with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of roasted and chocolate malts, light lactose, hints of metal, and light hops. Flavor the same, with the metallic notes sort of ruining this. Average texture. Not great.
