3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Strong chocolate nose with some coffee and some phenolic notes, too. Dark brown (near black) with a thin brown head. Very creamy chocolate initial / moves smoothly across the palate with light chocolate and some licorice / finishes warm (only 5.7%?) and with lightly bitter cocoa. Medium-heavy body. Very nice. Silky and rich.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Heavily carbonated dark reddish brown beer with a huge fizzy, creamy beige head. Nose of toasted malt, sweet molasses, and medium-roast coffee. Taste is sweet initially and doesnít have the various layers of the aroma, although it does build a little bit with some roasted flavors and bitter chocolate. A relatively mild-flavored stout, but certainly a pleasant one. After drinking a few stouts with enormous flavor, this light one is a nice change of pace.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark brown with loads thick tan head. Nice citrus hoppy aroma. Taste sweet with bitter finish of hops and berriness. Not a bad beer, but I had hoped for more.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet aroma, sweet taste permeates this one. Black with little head that clings to the rim of your glass. This is one of the better sweet stouts Iíve had. The milky sweetness is upfront and complemented by the roasty malt notes. The finish is sweet and slightly lingering... Itís a bit thin bit thatís to be expected. ;) NC

Dark brown, almost black pour with a light tan head. Aromas of roasted malt and coffee. Flavor follows suit with hints of toffee and cocoa in the finish. Not the darkest milk stout but very very smooth and enjoyable. Solid brew.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very dark brown, very close to black but light still comes through near the edges of the glass. Smells of sweet malts and a bit of malts, tastes pretty much the same, not too sweet which is good, very drinkable beer very enjoyable as well. Maybe should try it when it is not summer

Bottled....at first it had a very strong metallic taste that then faded, taste improved and grew on me. Not great, not bad.
