Dark brown pour with a tiny white head. Nose is roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla touch and milky sweetness. Flavor isn't as sweet as expected, mostly roasted malts, bitter dusty chocolate with some vanilla. Not bad, expected more.

A crisp and high drinkable stout. Straightforward but not simple palate. Coffee aroma. Very impressive especially considering drinking not on tap. Bottle. Random day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a pitch black color with some red highlights. The head is a small tan color. The aroma is roasted malt and coffee in a sweet blend. The taste is a fairly thick milk and coffee flavor with added tastes chocolate.

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 I’ve 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

jsporrer (521) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2016
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 isn’t too strong or too weak. Very smooth finish. Just a little too light for my preference in stout. Surprisingly refreshing.

20 oz tap. Dark color, rich coffee odors. Very drinkable. A nice milk stout.
