2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I wouldnít have bought this if I knew it had lactose; Iíll 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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep brown-black pour with soft off-white head. Fresh roast malt, light vanilla creation and brown sugar sweetness. Flavor is light roast malt/coffee and lactose cream with a bitter chocolate finish. Clean and semi-rich. Nice.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Theyíve 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 itís really tasty and goes down rather easily.
Overall, I think itís great. Smooth, not too big, bold and well balanced flavors. Iím a fan!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma- malts, grain, roasted qualities, faint chocolate, metallics
Appearance- dark brown, minimal head, flat looking
Taste- typical average stout qualities, cream, sugar, lactose
Palate- medium-body, lower carbonation
Overall- Not real good. Just an average stout in all respects.

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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can pour into pint glass. Pours a pitch dark color with a thin and reedy off white head. Nose is milk chocolate and filter coffee. A very smooth cream stout with a great lactose feel to it. No real hop presence here, with only a limited bitterness. But hops are not what you came for here. Solid.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
16oz can. Good coffee-chocolate aroma. Pours opaque black coffee brown, with sustaained with fluffy tan head. Flavor carries on the coffee chocolate, but with an earthiness to it as well. Medium to light body. Faint coffee finish, with a slight sweet note. Very smooth and drinkable. This is very useful in thet it gives you a classic stout profile, yet, is not particularly complex, heavy, or alcoholic - making it a highly drinkable 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.
