3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
First high-abv milk stout I’ve ever had. I find it to be less "roasty" than most stouts, and it reminds me of a baltic porter due to the high abv and malty sweetness. The alcohol is definitely at the forefront of the flavor profile. But, the lactose makes it seem smoother than expected. A unique brew, and definitely a successful experiment.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a deep, opaque brown/black with a thin tan head. Big, fruity raisin & prune character with some booze, sweet choccy malts and a delicate dry roasted malt backbone. Medium body, a smooth mouth feel beneath medium carbonation and a decent finish. A good stout with good bittersweet balance.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lightly sweet, but less sweet than average, I think, for style. Higher ABV is well hidden despite a flavor profile that is more mild than bold.

Slightly disappointed here. Syrupy stout with one dimensional mild chocolate flavor. Smells a bit of wet dog. Decent, but I'll stick to Mokah.

Bottle. Pours a dark opaque brown to nearly black. Tannish slight frothy head. Aroma is chocolate with a toffee or coffee note. Taste is a sweet roast malt and light chocolate with a slight bitterness coming thru. A very nice double stout indeed!

tap at Dash In - Pours black with a small light tan head. The aroma is of roast malt and chocolate. It has a sweet malt flavor with roast character and lactose notes. Full bodied, this brew has some bitterness coming through in the finish. Very good brew.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured a black color with a one finger foamy velvet head. Nice of aroma of cocoa, coffee bean, cream, tootsie roll. Medium sweetness. Light bitter. Creamy texture. Medium body. Light carbonation. Taste is like the aroma. Pretty good. Like the higher alchohol on the milk stout. Not sure I had a high alcohol one.
