3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the Little Pub at Hamilton College. Pours a dark cola brown pour with a fair sized and dense creamy head- good looking beer! The nose holds rich milk chocolate, touches of coffee, half and half, a hint of earth, and roasted malt, though the sweetness is certainly predominant over the bitterness. The flavor is more intensely sweet, with big creamy chocolate dominating the palate. Not complex, but well done, and very tasty.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2012 Sampled on draft this beer poured a black color with a medium sized tan head that left good lacing. The aroma was toasty malts, vanilla, cream and a bit of cocoa. The flavor was sweet cocoa, marshmallow, vanilla, cream and toasty malts. The finish was long and sweet with lingering cocoa and vanilla. Fairly full bodied and smooth. Nice.

Bottle pours a very dark brown with a head. Tastes and smells caramel, roasty, chocolate, alcohol, light sweetness, medium bitterness, medium body, sticky, soft carbonation, a lot of roast malt taste feels more like a porter to me not very sweet like I was looking for not bad but ive had better.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma- sugar, milk, some malt characteristics, slight hops
Appearance- dark brown, borderline black, crescent white head, some carbonation
Taste- super milky, very sugary, some caramel
Palate- relatively thin, decent carbonation
Overall- Not worth the $4 I paid for it. Milky, overly sugary, not very flavorful, just mostly average.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark as night with a tiny head. Aroma is dark roasted malt. Not as thick in body as it looks, but not much carbonation either. Very tasty with lots of dark malt and a touch of sour. Bitterness is kept well in check as is the sweetness. I really liked this a lot.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 12.19.11. Pours very dark crimson, almost opaque, with a small light brown head. Aromas of sweet milky caramel, roasty cocoa, and some sour coffee. The flavor is smoky malt, honey-glazed ham, and some bacon, with light alcohol and bitter cocoa in the finish. Low carbonation and nearly creamy, with a dry finish. Good; I get some "meaty" notes in here.
