3.2/5 rDev -16.2%
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 Lazlos. Also it was served a little too cold, this is becoming the sad norm at Lazlos 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 Im 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.
