2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This was the first sweet stout I had ever tasted, and the combination just didnít seem to go in beer. I might need to try this one again or some other sweet and milk stouts, but for right now I did not find much pleasure in this beer. It looked and smelled ok, but the flavor and mouthfeel did me in.

Dark brown, small dark tan head. Very bitter and almost sickly sweet with a milky flavor, some milk and coffee and amaretto... even vanilla. but not really that pleasent of a combination. Has a nice hop bite mid-drink. Average to below average sweet stout.

Transparent black, crimson hue, light sticky head & some moderate lacing. The aroma is creamy with some oatmeal & roast. The flavor is fruity with some light creamy spice. Very dry finish though but has good flavors.
