This was served in a pint glass at the brewpub.
The appearance was a black color with a slim bar pour’s kind of white to off white foamy head that quickly dissipated leaving some light clingy lacing.
The smell had a graceful blend of roasted coffee notes with a rich sweet chocolate.
The taste came across through the roasty notes. A slight roasty aftertaste leads to the same finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. Rich smooth creamy roasty coffee and chocolate graces my tongue very nicely.
Overall, this was my favorite beer from this brewery. Definitely have again. Aurelius (5335) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2008
Nice roasty aroma with a little chocolate/barnyard haze. Dark with a creamy head. Only slightly nutty sweet -- I wouldn’t categorize this as a sweet stout, it’s almost a porter. Medium body, moderate roasted finish that gives way to cocoa. Goes a little flat and a little watery. Enjoyable, but not very distinct. Thanks to the W family for hauling this back from MA. hayduke (5212) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 7, 2009
From a draft at the Egremont Inn tavern this poured a very dark nearly black color with a light tan head and some lacing. The nose is of roasted malts and coffee and chocolate. Mouthfeel is medium and somewhat slick. Flavor tends toward the malts with a lightl bitter finish. A very nice sweet stout. muzzlehatch (4959) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 30, 2003
Truly excellent sweet stout, with a very powerful milk chocolate aroma, medium sugar in the flavor, vanilla hints swirling amongst the chocolate, rather dry finish like most of the brewery's stuff, just a bit too much astringency or it would be GREAT. Still, pretty top-notch. DiarmaidBHK (4907) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2015
Sample at brewpub. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Solid roasted malt on the nose. This is listed as a sweet stout but I'm not getting much lactose. The roasted notes are pretty solid on the tongue. Finished clean.

Bottle shared with tupalev, blankboy, HogTownHarry & jerc - HogTownHarry’s bottle. Deep brown with ruby flashes and a wispy tan head. Delicious aroma - rich and roasty with deep chocolate malt and some hints of hops. Flavour is quite roasty, with notes of coffee and chocolate, with a mildly dry and sour edge. Really nice!
