Notes/Commercial Description:
A smooth-drinking, late-winter wonder. We’ve crafted this English-styled stout using roasted malts and a healthy dose of lactose sugar to produce a creamy-rich beer with hints of roasted chocolate.

12oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a small off-white head that goes to a thin collar that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet lactic chocolate malts with a little roast.

The flavor is sweet, grainy, lactic, chocolate and vanilla with a little acidic roast. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a decent sweet stout - a little too much on the sweet side for me.

Largely black in hue with some reddish highlights, it was served with only an off-white soapy collar of foam. The subsequent lacing was absent. The appearance is disappointing but rather typical of an Empyrean beer poured at Lazlo’s. Also it was served a little too cold, this is becoming the sad norm at Lazlo’s too. There is no question that the chilled temperature influenced the nose, it smelled cold. I waited until it warmed up before I returned to it, once at a reasonable temperature notes of sweet chocolate malts with a little roasted undercurrents were found. The potency is still small. The palate was very nice; there is a lovely mix of lightly roasted malts that produce flavors of coffee and sweet chocolate milk (aided by the lactose sugar I’m sure). A kiss of bitterness is found at the finish, which is also soft and flowing. Surprisingly clean as well. The palate is simple but tasty. I think Sweet Stouts are generally hard to impress, however Fallen Angel does represent the style well. Medium in body, the carbonation is a little firm; this does hurt the mouthfeel a bit. This is a decent beverage, easy and enjoyable to drink. It is good enough to try once.

Poured into an Irish pint glass.

Look: Ruby cuts through a dark chocolate blackness. Cream colored head recedes to a film with random bubbles, light foamy lacing.

Aroma: Dark roasted malts, coffee, bitter chocolate.

Taste: Mostly roasted malts and coffee/chocolate at first. The lactose and sugary sweetness come on later.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, slightly dry.

Overall: A good session, probably on par with all of Empyrean's other brews.
