4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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 thereís a moderate level of carbonation.
D: The Milk/Sweet stout is a style thatís 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 Iím glad I have another.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2008 Black; rich roast in the nose. Slightly fatty body, light fruitiness (a function of the high gravity) - like cherries and grapes; long malty finish. Soft, smooth, slightly creamy and a little bit nutty. Kind of simple.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma of sweetened chocolate, a lactate-y quality and slight roastiness. Flavour follows suit, with the roastiness and sweetened chocolate upfront - milky body that leaves the slightly sweetened chocolate lingering. Quite good though nothing overly special.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 isnít sweet, itís really well attenuated, just how I like it.
