2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
An average milk stout with a chocolate and coffee taste. Finishes with a touch of sweetness. The label is what really makes it worth buying.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at the brewpub. Deep near black body with garnet at the edges. A light khaki head on top. Strongly roasted coffee nose with green beans. There is also some milk chocolate. The taste is like sweet grapes and green apple. There is also a strong sweet coffee finish. This would be good except for the green apple as CanIHave4Beers said about it last year.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a deep black with a good head and some lace. The aroma is some burnt sugar and caramel with some roastiness and some odd kind of green apple infection. The flavor is more odd green apple with some toastiness and a nice sweetness. There are some coffee tones in there as well. This is basically perfectly balanced and would be exemplary for the style if it weren’t for the odd green apple flavor that really gets in the way of all the nice things going on here.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this one on draught at the brewpub in Ames, Iowa. Clear, dark reddish brown pour with a thick, foamy tan head, soy sauce and chocolate malts in the nose, bitter chocolate throughout, especially in the finish, with some cherry and sweet coffee, a milky, smooth finish. Excellent.
