3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of bitter chocolate and coffee. Pours a deep dark brown with a tan head and minor lacing. The taste is overall a bitter - dark roasted malts, and bitter coffee. Medium-light body and moderate carbonation. Overall, for a milk stout I would have expected something smooother and less watery, sadly, this beer was not that.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Opened this upon returning from our week-long holiday road trip and before unpacking. My wife didn’t think it to be such a great idea, but after 2200 miles I may have turned on my selective hearing. Really dark brown pour, nearly black. A finger of creamy tan head dies back to a gentle ring with light lacing. Heavy roast and light espresso in the nose, along with a light bitterness. The quality of the espresso comes through much greater in the flavor… really nice. Good roast and lacto. Lightly bittersweet. It has a soft and creamy body that fits the style well… probably great on nitro. At the very end a dry, bitter wave creeps into the creaminess just enough to be a distraction, but not enough to dwell on. Clear this up and its a 4+ score, imo. At $5.59 for the bomber it’s one of the better buys out there. To date, the best I’ve had from Paradise Creek.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a smallish light brown head on it. Nose is pretty light on this one, but I can get some slight bits of coffee coming through. Taste is slightly sweet up front, but descends quickly into some coffee and roasting, which brings up a slight bitterness. Very interesting, and pretty smooth.
