Pours inky brown with a cappuccino head. Nose is chocolate, raisins, vanilla, oak char. Sweet and bitter in balance. Alcohol hidden. There is a lingering char finish. Yum.

Cavie (4638) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 11, 2017
Tap at the pub. Dark brown to black color, nearly opaque. Dark brown highlights. Tan head, frothy. Aroma is dark fruit, plum, vanilla, oak, port, sweet chocolate. Full bodied. Big dark fruit flavor with loads of sweet malt, chocolate, vanilla, wood, light port notes. Welcoming warmth apparent, edging on hot. Woody finish. Wow! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MILF has a very thin, tan head, an extremely dark brown appearance, with tiny bubbles streams, visible at the top sides of the snifter glass, with lighter brown at the top and bottom, as the sun shines through it. Aroma is of sharp, bourbon barrel, cocoa, and dark bread. Taste is of rich, chocolate, brown bread, raisin, and chocolate mousse. Mouthfeel is high medium, and MILF finishes medium dry. RJT

mikeymike (69) - Kansas, USA - JAN 29, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2017 12 oz bottle. Pours black with a one finger cola head. Aroma is barrel, vanilla, cherries, and dark fruits. Taste is predominantly dark fruits with vanilla and a slight roastiness on the back of the palette. After taste is strong chocolate, especially after it warms up. Mouthfeel was smooth, but the medium-thin body needs more viscosity. Overall, an excellent blended multi-barrel stout. My only critique is how thin the body was. If they increased viscosity, this would be world class.

AirForceHops (6976) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 4, 2017
12 oz. Bottle in a trade with Matt B. Pitch black color, thin lasting tan head Aroma is milk chocolate, coffee, subtle vanilla hints, mild bourbon.

The flavor has a nice barrel character throughout the sip. Good roasted backbone. Flavor is deep, dark fruits, chocolate, Bourbon, sherry, vanilla, and ending on oak. Creamy texture and fuller velvet body. Sometimes I am still surprised. This stout was a VERY nice surprise. Finely crafted.

Palme (4541) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 3, 2016
0.355l bottle from trade with ig88b. Thanks man! Looks really nice in the glass this, almost like pouring dark motor oil in the glass (not that I’ve actually ever done that before). It’s really deep dark, almost black in color and it has a nice little loud head. Loud, by what can only be described as fizzing. Dark beige or brown in color. Smells really nice. Rich dark chocolate, a nice but sharp alco sting, tones of burnt sugar and a really rich dark roastiness. Traces of cold coffee, coffee latte actually! Added cream. That’s what it is.. It actually a bit thin and boozy in the taste above average on the carbonation. Tastes sharp and a tad unbalanced. Almost a little phenolic in a way. Lots of nice chocolate though, and it’s definitely barrelled! Rum and smoke are definitely prominent. The rich and bitter sweet kind of chocolate. Cocoa with hints of licorice in the finish. The sweet kind. It really grew on me this down the glass this. Even though it smoothen itself after gaining some temp I still wish the mouthfeel had been a tad more pleasant. 17.10.2014

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thick black pour with tan head, thanks a ton Brandon! Aroma brought notes of dark cocoa, cocoa nibs, dark fruits, spirit barrels with rum, brandy notes prevailing, some vanilla. Taste was a mix of dark fruit, chocolate, cherry, cocoa nibs, hints of oak, rum, slight whiskey, finishing sweet, great mouthfeel. Excellent.
