On tap at the Village Tavern in Geneseo, NY.

Pours dark brown, almost black. One inch head, with good sheets of lacing down the glass, white and foamy.

Aromas include chocolate, heavy roasted malt, and some coffee.

The taste is great- smooth and a bit buttery, with lots of dark chocolate, and smoky roasted malt. I taste some coffee grounds as well.

The beer is very dry, almost ashy. Creamy mouthfeel, very drinkable. Medium bodied.

A great English stout from Middle Ages, I would've expected them to knock this style out of the park.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Had this stout on tap. Poured an absolute pitch black with almost no light penetration whatsoever.
A very nice two finger dark tan/mocha head, almost looked like a milkshake, that dissipated very slowly.
Aroma is a very nice soothing blend of caramel, roasted malt, malt and hints of cocoa and coffee.
The taste akin to the aroma is predominantly roasty. Hints of sweetness upfront, which are taken over completely with the roasted profile and ends with just the right amount of bitterness in the aftertaste. This is a very delicious medium bodied, dry stout. The lacing left behind on this stout is one of the best I have seen. A full 10/10 for the lacing on this stout.
I have to admit, perhaps the best ales Middle Ages brews are stouts. Highly recommended and a must try for anyone who enjoys a good, robust stout.

Thanks to shrek806 for getting this to me in a trade.

A - Black beer with a huge tan head that had some good retention. Left some spots and lace on the sides.

S - Roasty, dark malts, bitter chocolate, some ash, tiny bit of smoke.

T - Nice roast, some dark chocolate, little coffee. It's very ashy, reminds me of smoking an old cigarette on the end. It's good, although I don't like the finish a ton.

M - Exceptionally smooth and creamy, mouthfeel on this one makes it really easy to get down.

O - Nice beer and easy to get down. Very creamy and smooth, and lots of taste for the ABV. Good stuff, and great for the style.

Serving type: growler
