on tap @ Voodoo / Homestead PA --- Opaque black color, full tan head, stripes of lace. Taste is smooth, milky toasted malt that grows into rich chocolate after a mildly fizzed swallow. A lingering chocolate and malt finish. Rich and balanced and quite good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
a muddy oreo brown color with resilient 1 finger chocolate covered head that sticks around due to the nitro. Holy hell, this smells like dessert. Brownie and chocolate fudge sunday. The lactose sweetness hits you immediately and lingers. taste is not as good as the aroma but you still get a milk chocolate sweetness, fudge, vanilla and maltiness of an irish stout. Surprised the ABV is over 8%
