From a bottle, pours black with a light brown wispy head.

On first smell, I feel like something is not quite right with this beer. It starts with some cocoa and bitter coffee, but then the roast kicks in and brings with it a very resin-like note that dominates the lactose and the overall fragrance of the beer. It turns me off a bit, but I prefer my milk stouts closer to the chocolate milk type.

However, when you get to the flavor, it is quite more balanced. It is still more roasty than a typical milk stout, but good lactose remains with balanced sweetness. Lots of chocolate, roasted oats, and a sweet velvet finish.

Maybe I just don't like something in the smell, but taste wise, this is pretty enjoyable.

Poured a black body with one finger tan head that left a little bit of lace ring. Aroma is pleasant java/stout as I get some roasted malts, close to coffee, some vanilla/milkey lactic notes, touch of chocolate even. Beer is well balanced and tastes like it smells as a light sweetness, more milk than vanilla or hint of vanilla chocolate, has subtle roasted and coffee malts behind it for a great beer. Basically, a sweet beer that isn't overly sweet and has a dry edge.

Very dark brown color with a thick thin caramel had with short retention, but keeping a constant plate.
Initially intense aroma of coffee, licorice, light earthy hops and a muffed lemon.
Bold flavor of roasted malt with notes of coffee, decent amounts of lactic acid, earthy hops, vanilla bean, some dark fruits and chocolate cookies. Dry aftertaste with a bitterness from roasted notes.
Creamy and velvet body with appropriate carbonation.
Creamy milk and coffee brew, similar to a “pingado” concentrate or even a coffee flavored Yakult. If you like Milk Stouts, it is a good option from a brewer that masters dark tasty beers. And it could be a dessert beer as well.

A: Pours an inky black with a thick, creamy tan head.

S: Mild aromas of dark fruit, leather, coffee, cream, vanilla bean, roasted grain, and dark chocolate express themselves on the nose.

T: Notes of figs, prunes, dried black cherry, leather, roasted grain, cream, coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla bean, and caramel are underscored by earthy, herbal, mildly lemony hop notes. The finish is dry and smooth with delicate hop notes becoming more pronounced while coffee, cream, dark chocolate, roasted grain, and subtle dark fruit flavors slowly fade.

M: On the lighter side of medium in terms of body, creamy, and smooth. This stout is rather dry for the style. Carbonation is airy and active. Surprisingly balanced, refined, and drinkable.

O: A near perfect milk/sweet stout, this ale displays great balance in the mouth and an exceptionally complex blend of flavors. It is not the most traditional sweet stout in the world, but it is easily one of the tastiest that I have run across in the last year or two.
