2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From old notes. +++ Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a black color with a medium sized foamy dark tan head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was dryish and malty with a bit of lactose and coffee. The flavor was dryer than I expected with a bit of roastiness, coffee, and a bit of toasty malts. Only a hint of lactose underneath. Medium length dry and roasty coffee finish. Medium body. Ok.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the brewpub. Pours an opaque brown-black color with a thin and creamy dense tan head that recedes to a film. Sheet of lacing on the glass. Roasty malt aroma with some coffee notes. Medium, smooth body with flavors of toasted malt, mild coffee and a bit of hops. The finish is sweet mocha with a malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Coffee and milk aroma. Black, thin creamy head. Smooth, but not too sweet and not bitter enough. Heavy, a little syrupy. Needs character.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at the Pour House both on draft and on cask. Both poured a dark brown / black color with a dark tan head. Aroma of coffee and milk chocolate with a little bit of a sour note, I’m guessing from the lactose. On cask, this tastes like sweetened black coffee. An oily creamy texture with some good chocolate sweetness. Not as much of the lactose twinge that I get from a lot of other milk stouts. Non-cask isn’t quite as creamy, but still has a good flavor. Not much bitterness while drinking it, but leaves a little bit of a roasted bitter on the tongue.
