2.58/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

A - Dark Dark Chocolate Coloring with a nice head.

S - Smells Bitter, Bitter, and let me thing Bitter.

T - One of the darkest beers I have ever had. Just not my thing at all.

M - Smooth. But just a very very dark tasting beer. If you close your eyes it's like drinking a glass of milk.

D - Just can't do it way too milky.

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a nice dark brown color. Fits a stout profile well. Not much head. The guys at the brewery say it's on Nitro, but that doesn't do much to help with head retention.

Smell comes off mostly burnt coffee malt with a little hop. It is so heavy on the dark roasted malt much of the flavors are muddled.

Taste is about average. It is again very malty at the front and the dark roasted malt has a bite that cuts through any of the smoothness that would otherwise be added by the lactic. Not well balanced. There are hints of maybe dark chocolate and coffee but they do not approach the palate well. The hops are all but lost as the finish is very alcoholic.

You can really only have one of these beheamoths. Higher ABV is not better. Don't sacrifice flavor and balance to say "two of these and you'll be hammered!"

2.33/5  rDev -12.7%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

A: Thin to no head no lacing down the glass and looks like used motor oil in color and consistency.

S: Severely malty, coffee and light mocha aromas.

T: Grossly heavy milked coffee flavors with a significant amount of hop flavors during and after the sip.

M/D: Heavy feel kinda like syrup or a really thick milk and very poor drinkability considering the taste and consistency.

Sampled at Arctic Craft. The pour is a midnight shade of black. Nice red hues around the edges of the glass when held to the light. Limited head that did die out over time. Next to no lacing throughout.

The nose is malty with a lactic twang. To start the malt has noticeable dark malts. There is a black marker smell that I usually associate with black patent (but I pick that up easy). Some minor notes of roast and coffee. There is a lactic almost sour smell in the back end. There is a slight hoppy citrus on the back end as well.

The taste is a bit toned down compared to the nose. The malt is more in balanced with roast and more of a dark chocolate flavor. Some minor burnt flavors, black patent, that is a bit astringent. The lactic is more on par as well with a more milky taste relative to oats. There is a sourness to it as well that is offsetting. The hops are toned down but perceivable in the finish. Some off flavors but some nice ones as well.

The body is closer to light than moderate. Carbonation is low. Overall some good notes with the roast but some bitterness from the malt hurts the lactic quality. Also a slight sourness on the end is off.
