Draft at brewery. Solid sweet stout that is easy to drink though it leaves a very slight off taste in the finish. Black body with a nice tan head that didn’t stick around. The nose was full of roasted malt, chocolate and a hint of coffee. The flavor was moderately sweet and moderately bitter and lightly to moderately acidic. A coffee-like bitterness stuck around for awhile. Tastes of sweet milk, char, licorice and a metallic aftertaste. Medium body, average carbonation. Soft texture. Very nice.

Aroma of chicory coffee, moderate roast and bitter chocolate. Appearance is pitch black with a tight, creamy brown head. Flavor has a nice level of bitterness with the coffee and chocolate, the finish is very light. Palate is oily (power of suggestion? No.) and creamy. A really, really well made stout- no frills, but just an expertly crafted example of the style.

Pretty bitter for a milk stout. But a nice bitter beer with sweetness over time. Nice head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - SEP 27, 2008
Sample at 2008 Indy Microbrewers Fest - Aroma of dark roasted malts, meaty, ashy, chocolate and some hops. Pours black with a brown head. Flavor matches aroma and is very roasty and smokey. Palate is dry and ashy. Tasty but nothing I would drink a lot of in one sitting.

Black pour with a cream chocolate head. Nose is prominent with chocolate and coffee. A little thin considering the name. Taste matches nose.

Draft at the brewery: Midnight black pour with a short mocha head. The nose was hard to detect out of the pint glass, but light nights of chocolate and roast were detectable. The body was nice and full, with that classic lactose induced mouthfeel. Lots of roasted malt, fudge and coffee notes come alive in the body. A slight metallic tinge on the back of the tongue brings this down for me, but a really respectable attempt on their small scale system.

On tap, poured into a shaker. Chocolate and coffee are very noticeable in the aroma with a touch of cream. It’s a very dark, black body with an abundant tan head that coats the glass with lots of messy lace. It’s a medium high sweetness with a touch of bitter at the finish. The body is on the low side of full, but robust none-the-less, with a slick texture and a light amount of soft carbonation that starts to feel flat by the end. It finishes with a chocolate milk note and a bit of grains, coffee grounds and ash. A light chocolate and ash quality sticks around in the brief aftertaste.

Huge, chocolate roast in the nose - wow! Typical nitro stout appearance - black body with a creamy had of small, tight beige bubbles. Delicious! The flavor matches the aroma. Beer is soft on the palate. A terrific beer and one that makes a visit to Columbus quite likely!

Notes from Indy Winterfest. Pours black with off white head. Aroma is of weak coffee. The flavor is bitter, chocolate, dark malts, dry, with lactic sourness. Palate was slightly thin. Overall, pretty decent.
