3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours black with almost no head.aroma is straight forward roasted coffee and chocolate.flavor is coffee and chocolate and is not as sweet as i thought is was going to be.maybe the bitterness tends to hide the sugars a bit.flavor reminds me of when you chew on a roasted coffee bean,it leaves that same bitterness on your tongue.low to medium carbonation with a medium body and a slick mouthfeel.very long bitter finish.cant say im dissapointed and cant say im impressed.its enjoyable but from southern tier i believe someone would expect more.the bitterness outweighs the sweetness and the flavors are not very complex.

pitch black color. Brownies soaked in bakers chocolate. Not sweet nose. Med full mouth, decent bakers chocolate and brownies mouths. Very dry. Lingering chocolatey finish. Fantastic.

12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a darker brown with a beige head of foam. No retention, really. The aroma has milky chocolate and anise. The taste is moderately bitter, with a milky sweetness to it. Chewy mouthfeel and low carbonation. Maybe a little past its prime.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured up a black brew with a head that quickly died to absolutely nothing. Looks flat now. Smells of roasted and chocolate malts makes the lack of any head seem not so bad. Taste did not disappoint either and was the same as the aroma. Silky smooth to drink but only marginal carbonation feel. So it tastes great, needs improvement on body, but the price is not too far out there and the 7.5% make it worth drinking.

The aroma of coffee. The taste is of dark malt and black coffee. Okay bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long while. Okay and easy to drink beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Had on Nitro tap. Good chocolate but slightly dull towards the end of the taste. Picks up well with food.

Bottle (12oz $2): Nearly blank with small tan head. Smells and tastes little a cross between bitter sweet chocolate and milk chocolate with a hint of salt. Body is medium plus. Good milk replacement 😃

Bottle - Pours black with a ring of tan head. Nose is nutty dark malt, rye bread, and a bit of milk sugar. Chocolate and a hint of coffee grounds. Smells a little nutty for a milk stout. Taste is the same--roasty and nutty with some bitter burnt wood and ash notes. Some sweet milkiness, but overall I was surprised at the dry roastiness on this one. Slick and medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Pours a dark mahogany brown. Aroma is roasted malts and grass hops. Initial flavor of sweet/sour milk is almost a turn off, but this beer is complex in that you need to taste the entire profile to really appreciate it. The milky flavor gives way to a grassy hop finish. I almost pick up a note of bubblegum in between the sweet/sour milkiness and the grassy hop finish. That’s wasn’t the intent. I would love to try this brew from a nitro tap as opposed to a bottle This one is interesting and requires more than one to rate.
