3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It pours out a thick black with a one inch foamy tan head. The smell has milk chocolate up front with some nice vanilla entering in sweetly. Light malted roastiness comes through slowly as it warms. The taste is bitter and sweet in different aspects. The mouthfeel is mostly thick. It has about a medium sort of feel. It is fairly drinkable. Overall, this is pretty good. I like it and would come back again.
650 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained beige head. with layered lacing, over a clear brownish black (SRM 34) body......nose is cocoa, chocolate, earthy tones with oats. all from the malts, mild pine from the hops, balance to the malts.......taste is mild hints of sweetness with honey tones to start, chocolate, cocoa tones, oats, becoming dry with moderate lingering finishing hop bitterness......mouth feel, medium light but creamy body, no alcohol, moderate carbonation. This is more of an American Stout with the light sweetness, and moderately heavier bitterness than an English Sweet Stout. Some lactose might improve.

650ml bottle. Pours black. Chocolate, toast, plum, dry spice, a decent bitterness. Too much carbonation. Tasty. Brettsky06 (503) - Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 5, 2017
Dark brown pour. Aroma is strong chocolate. The taste is bittersweet chocolate. Touch of lactose. Quite bitter for a chocolate stout but it really works JuanFlk80 (312) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 27, 2017

Cana en el Lúpulo Oviedo 25..07.. 2017. (r2556). Color negro intenso con espuma beige fina que desaparece al poco dejando pequena corona. Sabores dominantes cacaos y chocolate con maltas tostadas suaves dejando amargo seco al final ligeramente herbaceo y con toques de cacao. Cuerpo ligero con bastante sabor a cacao. Seco al final. Buena para repetir.

Dark black in color
Heavy head that dissipates
Strong stout flavor
A meal all it's own
Would be good in a milkshake
