2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Black with shades of brown. Mouthfeel is full body cream, chocolate & sweet roasted malts. Low perception of alcohol. I expected better.

I don’t like milk; learning that I don’t like milk stouts and starting to dislike this brewer; maybe bad bottle?? no aroma; nice black pour. taste was wtf?? astringent toungue tingling up front; then nada and ends with an odd sweet chocolate and dry finish - odd duck!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
An interesting brew, hoppy and alcohol forward in taste, but quickly is balanced and gives way to a roasted sweetness. This beer looks and smells like a stout, but has hops to go with the sweets. Not bad.

Bottle. Poured a deep dark brown with a minimal off-white head. Aroma was roasted malt, a hint of coffee and dark fruit. Flavor added in just a touch of bitter and chocolate. Creamy. A good brew.

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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly disappointed here. Syrupy stout with one dimensional mild chocolate flavor. Smells a bit of wet dog. Decent, but I'll stick to Mokah.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!
