look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Pours a dark brown to black with thin light brown head. Smells of dark roast mocha and chocolate. Tastes nutty, mocha, dark malt, sweet cocoa and a little astringency. Medium body, medium carbonation with dark roast malt and cocoa after taste.

A: Pours an opaque yet still clear jet black in color with a light amount of gentle carbonation along the edges of the glass and significant amounts of dark crimson highlights. The beer has a half finger tall dense foamy tan head that reduces to a thick film covering the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of dark fruits (plum and fig), dark malts, and roasted malts are present with a lighter aroma of lactose and some hints of brown sugar sweetness.

T: Upfront there are moderate to strong aromas of dark and roasted malts with a moderate amount of brown sugar sweetness. That is followed by moderate flavors of dark fruits (plum and fig), some lighter flavors of licorice, and just a hint of lactose sweetness. Just a hint of bitterness in the finish.

M: Full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light hints of alcohol warming.

O: Seems like a hybrid of a Russian Imperial Stout and a Milk Stout, very enjoyable with a light to moderate amount of sweetness and some notes of alcohol are present. Much more of a slow sipper than an easy drinker. Well constructed.
