look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 1.5

A- Pours a really dark brown maybe even black with a thin tannish brown head. Head has ok retention, becomes a thin layer of bubbles and very thin lacing behind.

S-Smell is fairly sweet. Milk chocolate, fairly light coconut, light roasted malts, touch of char and mint like.

T- Mint is every where here and dominants this brew. Coconut is fairly light. Every thing here seems muddled due to the mint.

M- Medium in body and fairly light in carbonation.

O- I couldn't finish this brew and passed it off to a friend for his White Rajah.

On-tap at the Brew Kettle in Strongsville, OH...

A: Pours a nice deep black with about a half finger of mocha colored head. There is a slight amount of lacing as it drinks.

S: The nose is sweet. I get hints of chocolate, caramel, and lacto sugar. I don't get a whole lot of coconut in the nose, but I'm ok with that.

T: Really nice. It's sweet, creamy, and slightly roasty. I'm picking up a ton of chocolate, a little caramel, and a dash of coconut. This is an underlying roasty quality that mixes wonderfully with the over the top sweetness of this beer.

M: Full bodied beer. It's super creamy, and the flavors linger on the palate forever. It's one of those beers where the more you drink it, the more you want to keep drinking it.

O: This is a really wonderful beer. If you ever make it out to the Brew Kettle, and you see this on tap, it's a must buy. Color me impressed.

Had this on tap at the brewpub and it was so good I lugged a growler back 600 miles to NYC.

64oz Hill Farmstead growler into a Southampton oversize snifter... to really enjoy the aroma.

Pours a 1 finger light coffee head with poor retention. Beer is opaque black and full of carbonation. Lacing is spotty with little cling but decent legs.

Nose is coffee, roasted malt, milk chocolate, lactose, fudge, and mild coconut. Real sweet and rich but at the same time light and refreshing. Very nice.

Opens sweet chocolate, roasted malt, and coca cola. Mild vanilla, lactose, and coconut towards the middle. More lactose and sweet coffee at the end. Nutty finish with some sweet, roasted coconut in the aftertaste. Incredible. I don't think I've had better.

Light bodied with moderate to high carbonation. Bubbly in the mouth but smooths out as it warms and going down. Sticky finish with a lingering aftertaste. Perfect.

One thing to note is that this is mis-categorized as an imperial stout. It clocks in at 4.6% and is just a regular milk stout. Judging from that category, this is the runaway winner in that style. Just an incredible beer with such complexity and flavor and at the same time, such drinkability. Wish I could have this all the time.

On tap at the brew pub, presented with a nice looking pint. Dark black with a nice thick mocha head minimal lacing.
Smell is just sweet roast grain.
Taste is fantastic. Sweet hints at coconut and chocolate and it just lingers there getting better between sips. Just fantastic.
Mouth feel is smooth creamy, perfectly carbed
Overall this is a fantastic beer and so very refreshing and drinkable.
