3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from mcnellies in tulsa.
Pours into a guiness glass thicker and blacker than I thought. About a finger of head.
Sweet Chocolate and roasted malts on the nose. Very mild nose, moreso than I would have liked, but on par with a milk stout.
Very sweet milky smoothness, but ends with a bitter finish. Much drier than any other milk stout I have ever had. Chocolate and roast on the palate. Not bad for a 5% stout. They pack a lot of flavor in it.

Nutty expresso on the front, milk chocolate on the back-end. Just a touch too sweet after multiple drinks. Can. Smells subpar. Tastes pretty alright by comparison.

Had this beer at the Cedar Rapids Farmers Market. It was a hot day, so I was a little wary trying such a dark beer. However I was rewarded with a very smooth creamy taste with a hint of chocolate. Very good, would purchase more.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark brown color with a generous, frothy brown head. Aroma is dominanted by strong chocolate and coffee tones. The first taste reinforces what the aroma suggests, with the addition of toffee and slight caramel flavors. Finishes clean, which helps give it a very drinkable quality.

Pint can, just came in to my local liqour store. Pours dark as a stout should with ruby hues on the edges. Light tan cream colored head with loose bubbles and a little lacing. Aromas of chocolate and coffee as you pour. Taste leaves a little to be desired. Watery of sorts with a sweet front that follows throughout, the backend brings a mild spiciness from hops and the heavy roasted malt chocolate flavors. Very thin mouthfeel overall. Not a bad beer, just not consistant with what I want from my stouts.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Received in trade from Josh.
Pours a super dark ruby with a 1 finger head. It dissipated very quickly.
Aroma is malty, chocolate. It is very sweet.
Taste follows. It's very smooth with just the right amount of carbonation. Really big sweetness that has the right amount of roastyness.
Overall, a very nice sweet stout.

Watery syrup. Tastes like coca cola. Cream sugar indeed. Horrid. Iíll try this again someday for the utter fascination as to what they were thinking. Maybe Iíll discover I was wrong.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark coffee brown, almost black color with a dark khaki head. Aroma is sweet with hints of chocolate and coffee. Taste is very similar to aroma, balanced very well. The smooth drinking of this beer is where it really stands out, goes down very easily!

16oz can. It pours dark with a chocolate milk colored head that dissipates fairly quickly. Velvety mouth feel and a mellow finish. A great beer for the chilly weather.
