Pitch black pour with dark brown head a half inch thick. Smells of chocolate and root beer. Thick medium carbonated mouth feel. Lactose and chocolate flavor, just a hint of malt. Leaves a great slightly bitter, mostly sweet finish with more lactose.

12oz bottle. Poured in a Southern Tier snifter glass. Black pour, light tan head. Aroma of cold coffee, chalky malts. Tastes of a strong Milk Stout. Nice lactose character with loads of roast, licorice, hidden chocolate, and more bitter roast. It is a hearty beer for sure. Perfect for the summer months! Finishes dry and enjoyable.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Botella de 355ml. Vaso de ½ Pinta. Saboreada en abr´12. Brota con color marrón muy oscuro y coronada por una amplia capa de espuma cremosa. Persistente con bonitos anillos y collares. Aromas de maltas tostada y sutil levadura de pan con un toque de chocolate. Agradables maltas tostadas y bajo amargor al primer sorbo seguido de un envolvente dulzor. La lactosa crea una placentera sensación en el paladar. La asimilación resulta plena de sabor sin la pesadez empalagosa que desafortunadamente se asocia con muchas representantes del Estilo Milk Stout. ¡ Por supuesto que he tomado más de una!
355ml bottle. ½ Pint glass. Enjoyed on apr´12. Pours very dark brown in color crowned by a creamy, thick layer, foamy head. Lasting froth with nice rings & collars. Toasted malt & subtle bready yeast with a chocolate touch aromas. Gentle toasted malts & low bitterness at first sip followed by an involving sweet sensation. Lactose sugar creates a pleasant sensation on to the palate. Drinkability results flavorful without fat or cloying mouthfeel unfortunately associated to many spots of the Milk Stout Style. Perfectly covered ABV. Of course I´d have more than one!

Pours a deep black with tan head. Nose and taste are sweet, milky, and chocolaty. The booze is well hidden and the beer is very nicely balanced- not to much chocolate, not to much stout. It was just what I needed to end a busy day last night.

12oz bottle poured into glass. Dark brown color with a thin beige head. Holy chocolate!! There’s no escaping it here. Lots of chocolate both in the aroma and flavor. Sweet malt in the flavor mixed with sugar milk lactose. Very much an after dinner drink.

Pours dark with metallic red highlights. Smells rich and tastes richer. Slight coffee tones, malt, mild hops and chocolate. Sweet, but not so sweet that I was sick of it before I finished the glass. There are a number of things I’d buy again before I’d buy this, but I wouldn’t object if you were to offer me one.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap. Moderate toasted, nutty and iced coffee for the malt, light herbs for the hops, light to moderate earth for the yeast, with hints of wood and vanilla. Head is small, between frothy and creamy, khaki tan with good lacing and good legs and is mostly diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium to full, oily verging on creamy, with a soft carbonation and a lightly alcoholic and slightly sticky finish. Full and rich and sweet, perfect descriptors of an excellent Sweet Stout.
