UPDATED: DEC 5, 2004 Black, with a great brownish head. Has a wonderful aroma from toffee, butter and milk chocolate. Flavor is milk chocolate as well, some vanilla and with some cream. Very smooth and pleasant with a great hoppy finish. Also it leaves great lacing on the glass.

330ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut
Rather nice porter roast aroma, some graininess. Lovely roasty taste, some mellow coffee aspect, pleasant huskiness. Super drinkable palate - full, but not heavy. Lovely dry bitter hops in the finish. The US is still absolutely nailing the porters. But this isn’t sweet, it’s really well attenuated, just how I like it.

Bottle, thx to SecretSanta. A very dark brown beer, finger-thick tan to beige head on top. Roasted malts, chocolate and coffee on the nose, more pronounced than for the Kalamazoo Stout. Roasted, coffee-ish flavor with some chocolate and notes of beef stock. Full-bodied, smooth and dry. Roasted finish. As the Kalamazoo Stout, a bit one-dimensional, but certainly very nice. 110930

A: The pour is just about black. Very little highlights, if any, that I can see. A nice tan/mocha colored head perches itself on top. S: The nose is full of roasted malt and sweet milk chocolate. T: A very interesting flavor profile. A light roasted malt flavor with a very sweet finish. There is quite a bit of chocolate coupled with a mild bitterness. M: A very creamy, smooth mouthfeel. The body is medium, and there’s a moderate level of carbonation. D: The Milk/Sweet stout is a style that’s beginning to grow on me. Generally I am more of an RIS fan, but the sweetness is quite a welcomed change of pace. A great beer, and I’m glad I have another.
