pours very dark nearly black, brownish head. aroma of chocolate malt, slightly sweet aroma. Flavor is roasty, smooth slightly creamy malt flavor. true to the style, one of the best milk stouts I have had. Would be very nice with a desert, perhaps cherry pie or a piece of dark chocolate.

I received this in a trade more than enough times and just found the notes to this.
Every time Iíve had this, it was always poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice dark brown close to black color with an off-white to somewhat dark tan one finger head that dies at a nice slow pace and ends up leaving some nice looking spiderwebbing lacing in the wake.
The smell had a super nice blend of dark roasty chocolate malts to coffee beans. Its an eloquent combination!
The taste was bittersweet bliss between the chocolate and the coffee. There was the exact same aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, it sat medium to heavy. I found myself sipping this, but it showed a superb carbonation running about my mouth and tongue.
Overall, all I have to say is absolutely wow! If I lived in North Carolina, I would probably be stalking this brew wherever I could find it.
