750 ml bottle from Uptown. Pours a clear chestnut color with a large beige head. A big sweet cocoa and toast nose. Very sweet, caramel, cocoa, some toast, a dry finish. Needs some roast if it’s gonna be this big, a bit under attenuated. Overall, this is a solid beer. Drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, picked up at the Co-op a while back. Nice wax color and easy to cut right off with a paring knife. Pours a deep brown color with a small brown head that quickly becomes just a brown ring. The nose is rich with the anticipated milk stout smells, full of cocoa and mocha. Very inviting. Coffee comes forth in the taste; a very fresh and definitely emphasized. Subtle cocoa notes. Gets a little roasty on the backend, but still centered on the sweet stout style. Silky and creamy texture is just right to style. 10% ABV / 2015 vintage.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was a very carbonated beer. It sounded like a soda as the head receded. Red mahogany color when held against the light. Sweet nose. Flavors of light brown sugar and lactic sweetness, light toast, dark fruit, with some milk chocolate notes in the finish. The alcohol comes out as it warms. Okay stout.
