A black pour with ruby highlights and a creamy tan head. It has a roasted aroma with notes of peanut butter and milk chocolate. The medium body has a slick texture with average carbonation. It has a sweet taste that fades a little with the roasted finish.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2015 Tasted on tap at Oeno in Old Town, Wichita, Kansas, USA in pint glass, but Iíve had the cans as well, and both are equally good. Poured a very dark, opaque reddish brown color with creamy tan head, lasting with some lace. Standard stout characteristics: roasted barley, mild hops, residual sweetness, with a uniquely creamy and complex aftertaste. Interesting. Recommended.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Serving glass: Poured from can into Nonic Imperial Pint.
Appearance: Ruby black with thin tan head and spotty lacing.
Aroma: Sweet molasses, roasted malt and milk chocolate. Smells decadent and rich, especially at first.
Taste: Nice semi-sweet mix of chocolate, molasses, roasted malt and licorice. Minimal bitterness - while the smooth, rounded malts are appreciated, a little hop balance or extra roasted bite could have helped.
Palate: Low carbonation, smooth body that is fairly light. Too thin.
Overall: A solid, malty and drinkable Sweet Stout. Good session beer overall, even if there is no "wow" factor. Probably would be better with a slightly bigger body and a touch more bitterness.

It is a pretty tasty little brew. It goes down really smoothly, nice cocoa and caramel flavors with some coffee.
