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. (1,257 characters)

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. (538 characters)
