Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, char, and slight lactose aromas. Taste is much the same with dark fruit, cocoa, char, and slight cookie dough flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable, but nothing all that memorable with the aromas or flavors.

Serving type: bottle.

Pours a lovely black with a reddish hue to it. It's actually a bit devilish in that you think you see that lovely red and then you don't. Fat creamy head of chocolate colored foam that falls fine and leaves a good layer of bubbles and lace to look at as you drink. Nose is a bit of bread. Rich dark bread with a baked grain sweetness on it. Sweet chocolate and a bit of morning coffee. There's a dark fruit in there too. Drinks like a charm. It has an expansive mouthfeel but with the lower abv it drinks relatively light. The roast is a bit dry and a touch bitter. it has a light faint bit of dark fruit on the palate but not as strong as it is on the nose. Same with the chocolate. On the nose it's a touch sweet and in the drink it's more like cocoa powder which is not in itself sweet. This one has a taste like dark bread with the crusts. A baked sweetness that is not sugary. A bit of carbonation takes it gently over the palate and it finishes dry and that is where the lactose sweetness and the chocolate combine for a touch of milky sweetness. A brisk dry finish with a bit of mild morning coffee and only the dryness and the crusty bread lingers. Excellent!

No sour porters for me. I'm moving on to a milk stout from Tempe. Comes in a 22 ounce bottle. On to the beer:

A half-inch of head rests on top this obsidian/red hued beer. Creamy whisps of lace stick to a few spots around the glass. The aroma of chocolate malt balls makes much of the aroma, and there's a "plain" sweetness which I can't put my finger on. Overall, the aroma is not very strong, but it is interesting.

What I taste is decent. Unsweetened chocolate is the dominate note of this milk stout. A kiss of raisins offers a distraction from the chocolate. Just a dash of bittering hops at the end cuts through the overall sweet nature of the beer. While it's not a beer I feel in love with, it did help me forget the agony of Dark Knight Porter.
