3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Canned. Pours light coffee color, ok-sized head. It looks like a milk-stout, definitely not too dark in color, or too roasted as far as malts go. Aroma is sweet chocolate, sweet almost to the point that I feel like I’m picking up sweet dark fruit notes, like raisin, or cherry. So mostly sweet chocolate and that lactose sweetness. Flavor is silky smooth stout, definitely get that creamy lactose milk sweetness.

Bottle, deep black, almond colored head fades to a ring. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, dried plums, cookies. Taste is chocolate, rootbeer, vanilla, faint anise, coffee. Palate is smooth, but not heavy. This is a bit sweet, but gets dry at the finish. This is excellent, and I usually don’t like sweet stouts, but this has great balance!
