Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a pitch black color with some red highlights. The head is a small tan color. The aroma is roasted malt and coffee in a sweet blend. The taste is a fairly thick milk and coffee flavor with added tastes chocolate. SG111 (1927) - New York, USA - APR 4, 2016
Tap at Charlotte airport, NC. Pours very dark brown/black, beige head. Aroma is really sweet chocolate, lactose, some roasted malts. Flavor is nice. Sweet chocolate, some caramel, lactose, sort of oatmeal mouthfeel, smooth. Nice milk Stout. One of the better ones I’ve had. Flavor profile is really good. jandd1983 (4442) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - APR 2, 2016
Bottle. It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of roasted malts, some chocolate and a hint of sugar. The taste was similar to the aroma with nuts, roasted malts and chocolate. Good stuff. gregwilsonstl (2574) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Dark black. Creamy. Nice sweetness, not overpowering. Milky. Some cola. Thanks Homer321 bnokk (537) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 8, 2016
Pours very dark brown, almost black. Thin consistency and tan head that dissipates quickly while lacing the glass slightly.
Very little to it right out of the keg. Slight maltiness comes through when I try hard.
FLAVOR- immediate roastiness jumps into my mouth. More than the color and consistency would indicate. Additionally, it has great mouthfeel which is surprising considering how thin it looks.
The flavor is clearly why this is rated so well. Extremely tasty!

BJCP CATEGORY 16A: SWEET STOUT
jsporrer (1058) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2016
AROMA: Some dark fruit, a bit of chocolate. Noticeable metallic tang. Old bottle. 7/12
APPEARANCE: Dark brown, fairly clear. Small tan head - fizzles away. No lacing. 2/3
FLAVOR: Sweet but not as sweet as most milk stout. Tastes better than it smells. Pretty well balanced. Nice fruity notes of raisin, plus some chocolate. Metallic tang is noticeably. 15/20
MOUTHFEEL: Medium body, low carbonation. Slight astringency. Dry finish. 3/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: Definitely a good milk stout, but this bottle was old. Probably much better fresh. 6/10
TOTAL SCORE: 33/50
Poured from a bottle. Pours dark brown to black with a thin off white ring. Roasted malt with a string coffee aroma. Feels a little thin but silky smooth. Decent malt flavor that isn’t too strong or too weak. Very smooth finish. Just a little too light for my preference in stout. Surprisingly refreshing. edbast (38) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 6, 2016
20 oz tap. Dark color, rich coffee odors. Very drinkable. A nice milk stout. Jabah (506) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2016
First sample from newly distributed NC beer. About what I expected. Dark black appearance with not much mocha head. Creamy low carbonation feel. Flavors of chocolate malt, lactose, coffee, a little bitter/burnt sugar. Nothing super-special, but good and solid. I only sampled a single for now, but this is one I could grab a 6’er of. samsmith33 (772) - - DEC 31, 2015
Bottle to goblet to start off my new years eve celebration. Loved this beer about 10 years ago when I had it in a beer if the month gift from brother Jon. It was great then, and still very nice now. Look is Dark black, off white head. Aroma is Toasted malt, smoke, salty oyster stout like aroma. Taste is bread, wine, malt. Thinnish feel for a stout, but smooth.
