Coffee, chocolate, and nuts in the aroma. Flavor is lightly sweet with chocolate and caramel, with some roast coffee bitterness in the finish. A nice holiday beer that you can share with your non-beer-nerd friends.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours near black with a sight reddish amber hue. Aroma of coffee, smoke and chocolate. Taste is sweet and chocolatey with a smokey bitter finish that balances out the sweet very nicely. The mouthfeel is thick and robust. Overall a good sweet stout.

a: dark brownish black with a finger of mocha foam falls to a sheet of the same. No lace. Clarity not important.
S: toast, coffee, sugar, roasted figs. Really quite pleasant actually.
T: Dry, toasty, lactose is delicate and sweet. Nice example of milk stout. Wish my homebrew was this good.
M: Heavy and creamy for the style - the way I like it. Low carb and semi dry finish. I like this feel.
O: Good beer. Might actually make this my go to cream stout.
Serving type: bottle

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is strong in coffee, nutty, roasty, and some chocolate and caramel notes. A bit smoky too. Appearance is the darkest of browns/black, very thick, no transparency. Head is light brown, medium froth. Taste is quite similar to aroma, coffeeish, chocolate, nutty. Medium bitter. Delicious. Body is full, yet some carbonation. Thick texture with long finish

This beer has an emphasis. on two main flavor; chocolate and cola. the body is very soft with a slight fizz and the end. a nice balance malt that is not overpowering, a minor acidic ting at the end. this is a great winter session beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Pours black with a cocoa coloured head. Smells fantastic, graham cracker, caramel, molasses, sponge toffee, and cocoa which almost comes together with a chocolate cream pie sort of aroma. Lighter bodied for a stout, but still very flavourful. Molasses, black licorice, espresso, earthy mineral notes, with a light citrus tang, and mild sweetness. This is one seriously sessionable stout. Thumbs up!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to pint. Looks good; a dark cola with thin beige head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt and roast. Tastes like it smells with some chocolate and lig sweetness. Average on the palate. Not bad.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Looks like cola coming out of the bottle. Definitely heavy, which is an aquired taste in and of itself, but if said taste is aquired, you’ll find this surprisingly drinkable and refreshing. Perfect with a fat grilled burger! It enhances the flavors of the darkest of savory foods.
