Bottle to shaker glass, pours deep red/black. Two finger billowy tan head. Not much lacing or retention. Aroma of coffee beans. Taste is sweet, no real bitterness. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, silky mouth feel. Finishes sweet. Tasting notes of dark chocolate, coffee, dark roasted malt, vanilla and lactose. Not bad!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle from Sam’s. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is heavy on coffee, a bit of chocolate and slightly sweet as well. Tastes is similar with the coffee flavor dominating. Some lactose in there providing the sweet touch on the end. A bit of chocolate too. Nice creamy body. Overall a very solid stout that lies between a coffee stout and a milk stout. My bottle says 6%, not 5.4% like the deScription suggests.

Pours jet black with a minimal head. Aroma of coffee and cocoa. Taste is sweet dark and heavy with roasted coffee. The finish is dry with earthy hop notes. Interesting that the hops come out in a stout.
