A traditional full-bodied stout brewed with lactose (milk sugar). The subtle sweetness imparted by the lactose balances the sharpness of the highly roasted grains which give this delicious beer its black color.

Approximately 4 oz. from 12 oz. bottle, consumed on 10-1-15. Pours a dark brown with light beige head. Scents of milk chocolate and chocolate-covered raisins. Very pleasant, sweet flavor. A touch of tartness in the finish. Medium body. Unremarkable palate effects. Nice beer. Not my kind of beer but likable.

EBD 6/16. Pours black as a starless night. World class head volume, lacing and retention. Outstanding nose of roast, milk chocolate, caramel and sweet lactose. A disappointing heavy light body that is smooth in texture. Superb carbonation with a solid effervescent middle and a nice prickly burst in the finish. The good flavor profile lacks intensity and complexity. It is well balanced. Mild roast flavor over a semi-sweet base. Hints of chocolate arrive in the middle along with a mild bitterness, predominately from the roast. The finish is a slow fade of previous flavors.

first time trying a beer from this regional brewery. pleasantly surprised. by it taste. The beer had a black appearance with a thin tan head, my only disappointment.. Aroma is that of a roasted malt. Flavor is that of being in a chocolate factory and getting to try the samples. starts with raw cocoa beans, then transforms smoothly to bitter dark baking chocolate and ends with milky like chocolate covered fruit. Smooth. Very good stout. Anxious to try other products from this brewery.
