Purchased at West Lakeview Liquors in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at night prepping for a move which results in stress eating and drinking a little too much. This stuff is awesome! Batch #118. Appearance is a creamy pitch black with a very rich and frothy tan head. Aroma is fantastic with huge vanilla, chocolate notes, as well as a slight bitterness of coffee and a slight abrasiveness of cocoa. Taste is fantastic, super easy to drink and not too sweet, the cocoa nibs add an interesting complexity, mixes very well with the vanilla and coffee. Would happily enjoy again!

changeup45 (1727) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Bottle from West Lakeview Liquors. The pour is black with a thick fizzy tan head that takes a few seconds to die down to a manageable level. The aroma has a nice chocolaty scent to it, with some vanilla, ashy notes, and light coffee. The carbonation is overly active, which ends up being a bit distracting initially. Once I get past that there are some nice flavors: sweet vanilla, dark fruit, plenty of chocolate, a dash of coffee, lactic throughout, and a chalky finish. It does get better as it warms. Pretty solid.

Tmoney99 (12741) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Bottle shared at Natifest ’13. Poured a dark brown color with an average tan frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium complex dark roasted coffee and sweet chocolate aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted coffee sweet flavor with a medium to heavy roasted dark coffee sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a solid brew.

This one poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma was of.lots off coffee and dark chocolate, light vanilla too. Flavor was milky mouthfeel certainly lactose here, with lots of sweet coffee medium roast and dark chocolate. A really well balance flavorful stout that I would love to drink anyday.

DrSilverworm (9456) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Taster from a bottle shared at Natifest 2013. Batch 140, I believe the bottle read. Good coffee in the nose, dark chocolate, big roast. Darker brown color. Minimal off-white head. Couple bits of lace. Bigger, chewier body. Moderate sweeter taste. Light bitter. Good milk stout. Not as sweet as most, a good balance.
