Pours pretty well pitch black, like motor oil, with a fine head of deep tan foam. Virtually no lace, though!

Nose is bittersweet cocoa nibs, dark berries underneath. Burnt malts galore!

Taste is smooth — charred malts and dark fruit duking it out on the palate for dominance. Finishes with more of the bittersweet malts and a hint of alcohol warmth. This is a delicious and smooth stout that approaches some Russian Imperial Stouts, even. Superb.

Pours black with a brown head that thins. Some lacing sticks.

The smell is of chocolate, coffee, cream and earthy notes. Robust and pleasant.

The taste is of robust milk chocolate balanced by mildly roasted coffee. Subtle dark fruit and earthy/anise-like tones mix in. A touch of sour lactic tang is in the finish.

It hits full-bodied. Some alcohol warmth lingers through the finish, as does the rich milk chocolate sweetness.

Not too heavy on the lactose for a milk stout, but it is sweet - the roast is mild. Overall, it's a rich, robust, complex, very enjoyable stout.
