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.

I praise the Fates for changing my ways and turning me from the Vegan lifestyle, allowing me to indulge in this beautifully crafted dark beer. I read once that "Yum Yum" is a powerful mantra. I said my mantra on this one!

Tap at Charlotte airport, NC. Pours very dark brown/black, beige head. Aroma is really sweet chocolate, lactose, some roasted malts. Flavor is nice. Sweet chocolate, some caramel, lactose, sort of oatmeal mouthfeel, smooth. Nice milk Stout. One of the better ones Ive had. Flavor profile is really good.

Bottle. It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of roasted malts, some chocolate and a hint of sugar. The taste was similar to the aroma with nuts, roasted malts and chocolate. Good stuff.

APPEARANCE- Pours very dark brown, almost black. Thin consistency and tan head that dissipates quickly while lacing the glass slightly. NOSE- Very little to it right out of the keg. Slight maltiness comes through when I try hard. FLAVOR- immediate roastiness jumps into my mouth. More than the color and consistency would indicate. Additionally, it has great mouthfeel which is surprising considering how thin it looks. NOTES- The flavor is clearly why this is rated so well. Extremely tasty!

BJCP CATEGORY 16A: SWEET STOUT

AROMA: Some dark fruit, a bit of chocolate. Noticeable metallic tang. Old bottle. 7/12

APPEARANCE: Dark brown, fairly clear. Small tan head - fizzles away. No lacing. 2/3

FLAVOR: Sweet but not as sweet as most milk stout. Tastes better than it smells. Pretty well balanced. Nice fruity notes of raisin, plus some chocolate. Metallic tang is noticeably. 15/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium body, low carbonation. Slight astringency. Dry finish. 3/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Definitely a good milk stout, but this bottle was old. Probably much better fresh. 6/10

TOTAL SCORE: 33/50

Poured from a bottle. Pours dark brown to black with a thin off white ring. Roasted malt with a string coffee aroma. Feels a little thin but silky smooth. Decent malt flavor that isnt too strong or too weak. Very smooth finish. Just a little too light for my preference in stout. Surprisingly refreshing.

First sample from newly distributed NC beer. About what I expected. Dark black appearance with not much mocha head. Creamy low carbonation feel. Flavors of chocolate malt, lactose, coffee, a little bitter/burnt sugar. Nothing super-special, but good and solid. I only sampled a single for now, but this is one I could grab a 6er of.

Bottle to goblet to start off my new years eve celebration. Loved this beer about 10 years ago when I had it in a beer if the month gift from brother Jon. It was great then, and still very nice now. Look is Dark black, off white head. Aroma is Toasted malt, smoke, salty oyster stout like aroma. Taste is bread, wine, malt. Thinnish feel for a stout, but smooth.
