3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
February 10, 2013 - bottle from AV. Black pour with nice head that lasted and nice lacing. Roasted malt, smoke, lactose and piney hops. Taste was very roasty even ashy, but starts out smooth creamy milky. The finish was a rough piney bitterness that I did not care more.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A - Pours a dark brown-black color with a finger of frothy chocolate-khaki colored head atop. The head fades down at a fairly slow pace leaving behind some nice lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of roasted chocolate malts, lactose sweetness, some earthy hops, black licorice, and coffee.
T - Starts off with a mix of roasted chocolate malts with some lactose sweetness and black licorice. Through the middle, some roasted coffee comes through with some earthy hops and some more lactose. The finish is a mix of roasted chocolate malts, coffee, lactose, and earthy hops.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry, roasted, and lightly sweet finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nice balanced milk stout with a good finish.

Black pour with a small creamy brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, milk chocolate and a hint of ash. Flavor presents a nice roasted character with bittersweet chocolate, coffee and creamy sweetness. Medium bodied with a sweet finish. Solid offering from Widmer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2013 Draft at Moriartys. Is this new? Not expecting to find a brand new beer here. But anyways ... Opaque brown pour with a nice pillowy brown head that died to a light foam after 5 minutes. Dark vanilla nutty aroma. Tasting black coffee. Chestnuts. Vanilla Tootsie Rolls. Some creamy elements bring some fullness but the darker notes provide most of the flavor. Semi-sweet chocolate. Charcoal. Burnt marshmallows. Creamy middle but a slightly bitter finish - not in a bad way. If the finish were sweet one would get sick of this quickly but the bitter finish proves oddly thirst quenching, so one keeps on keeping on. Feels like a Milk Stout but without the bloated feeling. Someone thought this brew through and I appreciate it.

Draft at Brass Tap Trinity. Pours a dark chocolate brown with a thin tan head. Mild roasted malt aroma with a touch of coffee. Pretty good amount of carbonation for a milk stout. Much appreciated bitterness in the finish with only minimal sweetness up front.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Finger and half of dark tan head. Black colored body.
Smell of roasted malt, milk chocolate and toast. Hits the mark.
Smooth taste with a good bite of bitterness. Roasted malt a heavy hitter. Great balance and flavor.
Smooth texture with low carbonation.
An excellent drink.
