3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Hearty super-dark brown pour with a light brown crown. Rich roast aroma, coffee and chocolate notes. Hearty roasted malt with a nice sweetness and acidity that keeps this highly drinkable despite it being quite full-bodied. Yum!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black with an ample fluffy tan head that laces nicely. Smells like sweet malts, bread, milk, and barley. It has a very subtle flavor (like Guinness- but a little more full and complex), with mild carbonation. It tastes like creamy malt and cereal, then finishes with soft grassy hops. This is a good milk stout, but I’ve had better. Don’t get me wrong: I didn’t NOT enjoy this brew. It is good drinking. It seems like the more I drink, the creamier it gets. The more I drink, the more I like it.

Bottle purchased at Vicker’s Liquors and opened on the fourth of July, this year. Darkest brown in color with a huge tan head. Malty and roasty nose with notes of chocolate and cream. Malty and chocolatey flavor with a creamy lactose character before a bitter coffee finish. Pretty nice.

22oz bottle in an English pint. Pours black with a lacy, light tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, hints of milk, some coffee and chocolate, and some floral hops. Flavor about the same. Smooth texture. A pretty good milk stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black with a thick, resilient dark chocolate head. Aroma is creamy, chocolate, coffee, hint of smoke. Flavor is similar; sweet, creamy, chocolate, smoke with a bitter chocolate finish. Some nice dark lacing. Full bodied, creamy, chewy. My favorite element was this subtle smokiness. It took this Sweet Stout in a direction that I was not expecting but very much enjoyed.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a twenty-two ounce bottle into a wide-brimmed tumbler.
Gritty, earthy smell evolved to rich brownie batter, chocolate liqueur, and burnt oatmeal cookie, raisins and all.
A khaki nimbus cover that waxes thinner without ever letting up. Appears fun to fall on.
Rich and dense loam becomes, as it had on the nose, abundant in chocolate ganache, bitter-sweet chocolate chips, See’s Bordeaux truffles, and S’mores.
The lactic acid is highly apparent on the palate. Silky almond milk consistency that coats the throat.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sweet aroma welcomes your palate that is further enticed by a thick khaki head and black bodied Milk Stout. Maltiness gives way to flavors of coffee, sweet chocolate, and a light bitterness. This is one smooth and very tasty Milk Stout.
