It is a bit funky, lots of metal and fruit, otherwise tastes like a milk stout. Not great though.

This pours a very dark brown/black color with a very minimal head. The aroma is mild with coffee and roasted malts. The taste isn’t is big and bold as I was expecting. The flavor is pretty simple with roasted malts, caramel malts, and coffee. At 4.5% this is missing the big bold taste that 8.0%+ stouts have. Now putting this stuff in a bourbon barrel would make it taste delicious.

1.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
This is a first, 12oz bottle... I’ve never had this happen to me before. 3 glasses first a shaker, second a pils glass, third a DFH shaped glass... pouring in 2oz of liquid resulted in an entire glass of foam. repeat three times, then pour the remaining 6 or 7oz in the sink where it foamed up an 8" diameter 3" high "cloud" Nice looking mocha foam, with hints of coffee and roast, foam is well foamy and eventually started to settle out, beer tasted okay no obvious infection...weird.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smells of oatmeal and coffee. Tastes like coffee and chocolate. The beer has a nice amount of bitterness and some burnt flavors which complement each other nicely. Light body with a creamy texture. Beer is black with a brown head which dissipates quickly. Almost stout like. A thicker head, and a more powerful flavourful would take this beer to the next level. Good beer, good times.
