3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours mahogany-black, quick small light brown head, no lacing or retention. Aroma of chocolate, bacon and roasted malt. Taste is very sweet, with bitterness of dark chocolate and dark roast coffee. Full bodied, carbonation is low and the mouth feel is sticky sweet. Finishes long and sweet with tasting notes of chocolate, cream, vanilla, burnt caramel, coffee, slight alcohol and raisin. Complex and interesting. Not bad!

Bittersweet chocolate, a little like the Nestle Quik powdery deliciousness from my 1960s youth, comes through on this very tasty stout. Very boozy for a milk stout but you can’t tell from the taste. Enjoyable on a cold Wisconsin night.

12oz bottle, shared by bastarda at oldmanriver’s potluck post-Nikolaus tasting 12/2014. Crème brûlée mitigated by lactose-sedated stout smoothness, with a suave hop back. Well-balanced, administering equal doses of coffee, caramel and oat smoothness. Not entirely sure what the extra alcohol adds to the style in this case though.

This beer is very smooth it has a very good head and holds it very well. It poured a dark to black color and left a good malty flavor in your mouth.

On tap @ Amundsen. This is a deep and dark brown looking one, only a small filmy sidesticking little brownish head. Smells mildly brown sugar sweet with nice sweet chocolate and roasted malty tones. It’s quite minty in the taste. Minty toothpaste, lots of peppermint and sweet cocoa powder. Nice gliding and oily in the mouth it is, and it’s soft on the prickling carbonation. There is no coming around that it is quite out there on the sweet branch this, but it somehow keeps me interested all the way. Quite good! 14.02.2014

Nitro at Brass Tap. It’s a nitro milk stout so it’s not as good as it should be because the silkiness is replaced by that blah nitro quality, but otherwise it’s a very solid chocolatey milk stout. Serve this on CO2 more, please.
