4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
They’ve got the color right for sure with a black pour and some deep brown on the edges. Lots of roasted and smokey oatmeal in the nose. Surprisingly creamy with some delightful chocolate and strong coffee flavors. The coffee really lingers. Mouthfeel is a bit light for as dark as this is, but it’s really tasty and goes down rather easily.
Overall, I think it’s great. Smooth, not too big, bold and well balanced flavors. I’m a fan!

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beautiful aroma of toasted coffee with some toffee. dark rich pour with lots of tan head. Taste is about the ssame as the as the nose....but it tastes severly watered down. nothing really lingering on the palate. if it would have a thicker mouthfeel this would be a much better beer.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I wouldn’t have bought this if I knew it had lactose; I’ll pay for it later. Deep black color, not much aroma - a little sweet coffee. Flavor is lightly roasty, coffee and dark malt. Underwhelming. It seems to be all about the texture, which is very smooth but has no reason for its existence. Too smooth, sweet and thick to stand up to the one-dimensional flavor. This would be much better with oatmeal instead of the lactose, and a bit more roasted barley.

Deep dark brown pour with plenty of light toffee colored head. Aroma of vanilla, heavy cream, soft chocolate. Flavor is like a super creamy chocolate mocha, hints of cinnamon and nutmeg, whipped cream.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can pour. Black with light beige head. Aroma is chocolate. Taste is chocolate with a pleasant sweetness, and a bitterness that matches the 20 IBUs. Mouthfeel is right down the middle, thin for a stout and not as creamy as I had hoped. Excellent carbonation. Refreshing taste. The low ABV makes it an excellent choice for a sessionable stout.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
pours dark brown with a small tan head. This beer is creamy and nutty, very sweet and chocolatety, with a nice roasted and coffee tastes. The only thing lacking is there is not enough carbonation in this beer.

can to glass. Aroma has roasty notes as well as chocolate and coffee. Brown pour with large tan head. Taste has a lot of sweetness. Similar to milk chocolate. Nice and smooth. A pretty enjoyable stout. Very drinkable. Not my favorite, but I can drink a lot of these.

Mahogony trimmed black body beneath a fading 1.5" light khaki head leaving flat dense shallow lace all around
Aroma of creamy lactic blending caramel notes and pleasant chocolate cake with a controlled dark chocolate-coffee influence introducing subtle bitter nuance on a light-medium, mildly carbonated body finishing with hints of dark fruit, and a touch of vanilla, smooth chocolate on the dark side of sweet rounding out, solid session
