3.81/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 oz. bottle poured into pint at Proudest Monkey, downtown Bryan, TX

L: black-brown ... it's not pure pitch up to the light; tan head but not much of one, no stick or lace (nothing to stick or lace); the super dark brown color is cool, almost unique

S: wood note, burnt oak ... or burning oak; it's not full-on burnt; flowers, seriously ... a light floral note pops through; in the end, it smells like being inside an old wooden home -- frankly pretty awesome

t: follows the nose very well, especially in the soft burnt note -- the malt here is very well toasted but giving off more of a nutty, pecan flavor than that charred/burnt taste stouts often have; a bit of wood; plenty of sweetness but suprisingly tame for a milk/sweet stout. this tastes more like an oatmeal or imperial than a milk/sweet.

F: great standard beer feel, probably awful in terms of keeping to the style, but I love it because instead of that lumpy silky feel you often get with the milk stout, this feels just like a standard midweight brew; plenty of carbonation

O: not bad at all. one thing I really like about it is the overall tameness of the "milk/sweet" part -- other milk stouts often last like a bit of dark-malt beer and a cup of milk thrown into a bag of sugar and mixed, producing a beer simply too sweet even for my notorious sweet tooth. THIS brew doesn't do that; it's much more like a straight-ahead higher ABV american stout, and the "milk/sweet" part is doing nothing more than taming the burnt notes.

i've only had this brew twice and both times at a bar. it's good enough that i'll buy a 6-pack for the house and give it some further investigation.

3.53/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter.

A: Black. Pours a 1 finger, brown head. Settles slowly. Spotty lacing.

S: Charred grains, licorice, and dark chocolate.

T: Charred grains and coffee are prominent. A little raisin.

M: Thick and heavy. Grainy on the front, slight hint of synthetic sweetness lingers in the finish.

D: Sip and savor.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Nice head but no real lacing. Nose is characteristic of the style... roasted malt, licorice, and chocolate. Charred grains and coffee in the flavor. Overall, this is a pretty good quaff.
