Sampler at Standard Market. Okay, my review gives this beer a ranking: Black in the rounded sampler glass, a thin yet bubbly ring of foam. Dark chocolate milk nose. Taste has a nice sweetness and noticeable alcohol like a cordial. Also chocolate again, and threads of vanilla. The usual bitter stout malt in the background.

On draft, this was a beautiful beer, dark w/ a huge and long lasting head. Beyond that, this is a pretty decent American stout. Itís a touch sweet and creamy w/ a strong American hop presence. It finishes w/ firm bitterness and an unfortunate ashy/acrid overtone. Itís not bad enough to ruin things but it notches this down from a very good beer to one thatís only okay.

Bomber. Pours a stouty brownish-black with a mocha colored head with very little retention. Nose is funky, but not in a Belgian farmhouse way... this is more like smoke and old cows. Mouth is thin for a stout, lightly bitter, some smoke, roasted barley, and dead grass. None of the characteristics of a milk stout. Fucking awful. Iím really starting to hate Solemn Oath.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Antioch cellared for a couple of months. Black pour with a tan, "root beer float" head leaving a ton of circular lace. Aroma has chocolate, some black malts, pine, light citrus and some roast. Taste is of sweet caramelly malts, some roast, some citrus, cocoa and a light bitter black patent malt presence. Black IPA-ish, in the mouth, to the positive. Finishes more bitter than sweet on that bitter-sweet scale, but roasty leads, and that is good too. Wow! Surprised. Likely in line with SOathís best stuff. (2 parts Grumpess plus 1 part Kidnapped = this???) 15.3

22 oz bottle from trader Joeís. Giant tan head which stays four a long time. Smells really good, hoppy with caramel and molasses. Not too much going on from a flavor perspective, it is understated. Some hop kick. Good, would drink again.

Bottle. Pours dark brown tan head. Nose/taste of milk sugar, coffee, cocoa, piney hops, resin and roast chocolate. Medium body.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is yeast, candy/sugar and a hint of dark malts. The flavor is dark malts, chocolate, candy/sugar and fruit/citrus/acidity in the finish. Noticeable hops in a milk stout is interesting but not something Iíll have again, it just doesnít work well in the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled: This stout is hopped forward with piney and citric overtones along with moderate roast and mocha. Some lacto notes but much more reserved that the last beer, likely caused by the abundance of bitterness. I like but it is damn close to being a Black IPA plus some "pickle" notes start to show as it warms.

A perfect american milk stout. Just the right balance of coffee, milk, and bitterness. Smells like coffee and pours black with a sticky tan head. Really crisp and crushable. Love this one
