22 oz bottle was poured into a stemless wine glass.
Appearance: This beer poured a one finger mocha head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pitch black color with no clarity, bit visions of tiny bubbles towards the top of the glass. Some lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Sweet lactose sugar, roasted coffee, chocolate, oak, vanilla, and a little smoke. Can't wait to try this one out.
Taste: Very tasty brew. All of the aromas above blended nicely.
Mouthfeel: Silky and creamy smooth, a little dry, full bodied, medium carbonation, and very drinkable.
Overall: Pretty solid brew from the brewery. I good take on the style and the oakiness gives the beer subtle flavors and characteristics.

Not sure how old this beer is, but its not a new release so I assume its from last year, which I found in a hole in the wall liquor store for $5.00
A: This stout pours very dark with a good 1/2 in creme colored head that leaves some lacing.
S: I get aromas of sweet lactose and roasted malts. Hints of chocolate and dark fruit follow.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, sweet lactose, espresso, dark chocolate and some plum or other dark fruit.
M: The taste is very sweet and creamy with a tartness at the end of the mouth. Definitely a sipper!
O: Very good Milk Stout which are my favorites amongst the class. Was going to save this until December, but decided to drink it know I will be able to get at least 1 more. Very good craft by the Blue Hills!

14oz serving on draft at Meadhall
A- Dark brownish black, fairly opague, about a quarter-half finger of mocha off-white creamy head.
S- Sweet lactose sugars, dark chocolate, hints of roasted malts and espresso.
T- Very sweet milk/dark chocolate taste, with hints of roasted malts and some espresso, light hops in the background.
M- A little bit on the heavy side, well-balanced, creamy, definitely smooth and drinkable, alcohol well hidden.
O- This was a good milk stout, a nice offering from Blue Hills. It kind of reminded of Left Hand's milk stout with a little bit higher abv which was well hidden. It was definitely on the sweet side and is one of the better milk stouts that I've had.

22oz brown bomber with no freshness date.
LOOK: Dark chestnut brown, excellent head retention
SMELL: Brown bread, mild coffee, cocoa powder, sweet, toasted bread, burnt raisins, chalky yeast, spicy alcohol
TASTE: Creamy, smooth, full-ish body, sweet, chocolate, dark roasted coffee, dark bread, crackers, oak, black currants, yeast, esters, hop bitterness, semi-sweet roasted finish
A damn good offering for a winter seasonal. Has the element of a sweet stout but is much deeper and is also very warming without being too rich.

22 fl oz brown bottle served in a snifter.
Thin maple in color with tones of oak. Lightly tan, porous head that leaves an intact ring around the snifter's rim and pools of bubbles in the middle. Patchy lacing with decent strength.
Bitter, dark chocolate aroma; the rough, roasted character and dryness is aided by fresh espresso and hazelnut. The fresh vinous fruit: plum, grape, etc., is a bit surprising on account of the sharpness and its contrast to the deep, roasted aromatics.
Young fruity esters: plum, grape, and cherry up front that provide a mild tartness. The roasted, dark chocolate that was foreshadowed in the aroma is almost subdued until mid sip. Rough, floral hops fill the middle with notes of hazelnut and espresso. A dry finish is followed by more of the fresh, vinous fruit.
Full bodied; relatively smooth despite leaning more towards the dry, roasted end of the flavor spectrum.
A pretty confusing offering; the aromas and flavors don't quite match a milk/sweet stout style, but nothing is unpleasant here. Certainly a unique offering that I would have again.
