330. Thanks, A! Pours jet black with a loose and sudsy grayish head. Very sweet nose, a little milky, lots of milk chocolate. Thick and sticky mid palate with moderate carb. Very sweet mid palate, especially for a dry stout, lots of unfermented sugars, chocolatey, a little bit of sweet fruitiness like snack cherries. Long sticky sweet finish.
