3.35/5  rDev -8.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pours an obsidian color with a creamy but modest tan head that leaves a nice pattern of lace

Smell: Charcoal and chocolate, with undertones of lactose

Taste: Ashy chocolate, up front, with a bitter and oddly tart character that develops in the middle; after the swallow, the lactose appears, adding a bit of cream and marshmallow

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: The tart flavor makes for a rather odd addition here; suffers from a lack of a milk chocolate character

Thanks, BeerHunter76, for the opportunity

On tap at the Whip In during the RateBeer Winter Gathering.

The beer pours a dark brown to black color with a beige head. The aroma is very full with a lot of chocolate and roasted malt notes. There is also some sweetness which I guess is from the lactose. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of chocolate and roasted malt, along with a touch of coffee. The beer is fairly sweet overall. Medium, creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice milk stout.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours dense pitch black color with a nice 2 finger dense dark tan head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big dark chocolate, caramel, toffee, butterscotch, cocoa, vanilla, cream, roasted malt, coffee, and light toast. Damn nice aromas with great complexity and balance of sweet dark malt notes; quite unique as well. Taste of dark chocolate, caramel, toffee, butterscotch, cocoa, vanilla, cream, roasted malt, coffee, and light toast. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, caramel, toffee, butterscotch, cocoa, vanilla, cream, roasted malt, and coffee on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of sweet dark malt flavors; with zero cloying sweetness present after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, and lightly syrupy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice milk stout! Great balance and robustness of sweet dark malt flavors; and extremely smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3.08/5  rDev -15.8%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

On tap at the Petrol Station in Houston, TX.

A: Pours a dark brown color. Nearly black. A small tan head forms, but recedes to nothing. Light lace.
S: Not much in the nose. Musky and dank, like wet cloths. astringent, slightly acrid malts. Light roast and coffee, some chocolate.
T: Follows the nose, but the dankness is gone and not quite as astringent. More milk chocolate flavors come out. Some roast and coffee as well.
M/D: A light to medium body. Thin carbonation and is pretty watery. Not hard to drink. I will put back the pint without a problem. That is it though.

Just ho hum. A little below average at best. Not something I am going to come back to.

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.

Friend brought this back for me from Texas. 12oz bottle into a pint flass.

Pours a .5 finger fine, mocha colored head that dissipates quickly. Beer is pitch black but pretty thin. Lacing is non-existent. Pretty pedestrian.

Nose is heavy on the lactose. Sweet and creamy with some coca cola, roasted malt, and chocolate to round out the flavors. Moderately aromatic and pretty typical. But good.

Opens chocolate milk and cocoa. Waves and waves of lactose sugar smooth out the experience and give a nice, malt backbone. Very creamy. Some coke and roasted malt bitterness right at the end. Finishes with a nutty bitterness. Aftertaste is sweet. Pretty enjoyable.

Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and silky in the mouth and goes down with just the slightest bit of bubbles. Finishes coarse with a lingering, filmy aftertaste. Pretty good for the style.

This is a pretty good beer. The lactose presence is very big and even though its pretty one-dimensional, the chocolate, roast, and lactose sweetness are all well integrated. Would drink again!

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Fine look to this one with a strong tan head sharply crowning a dark brown brew.

Dark chocolates and subtle dark fruits (plums, grapes) to the nose. Working hard to find more.

Tastes sweet and inviting with notes of marshmallow and chocolate countered by surprising notes of vinegar and earthy hops.

Medium bodied and cream with an alcohol presence that generates just enough warmth.

Underwhelming but tasty enough to prompt more seeking of No Label brews when possible.
