Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Bottled 4/2013.

Pours an opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and slightly sour fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and slightly sour dark fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is definitely showing some infection issues but is still fairly drinkable in my opinion.

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a thin dark tan head that slowly died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles on the surface and a thick collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Aromas of lactose are present in the nose, which also has some hints of coconuts.
T: Like the smell, the taste has lots of lactose flavors. The coconuts start to become noticeable as the beer warms up and taste slightly roasted.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied, creamy and a rather smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is rather easy to drink because it hides its alcohol relatively well.

Appearance: Pours pitch black with a modest tan head that fades to a ringlet and archipelago; dots of lacing ring the chalice

Smell: Lactic sour tones with black bread and chocolate underneath

Taste: Black bread and chocolate with a growing lactic sourness developing in the middle; vanilla, coconut and soured milk join with the chocolate in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: This beer reminds me of Yazoo's soured Sue; unintentional but interesting

Black tulip with an ample head of tan mocha tinged foam on top.
Fades to a ring at the edges, glassy obsidian surface in the center.

Toasty sweet aroma, mild amount of char to it. Big chocolate and cafe con leche notes. Similar flavors, roasty mild coffee, sweet milk chocolate, super smooth and creamy. Moderate roast, not overly bitter, sweetness is mild and not cloying. Not getting much coconut but it stands on it's own merit as a solid milk stout. Would hope the next batch has more toasted coconut flavor to it...

On tap at Sycamore, Columbia, MO.

A - Poured an opaque, jet-black color with a one finger, light brown head of bubbly foam. It left sticky sheets of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of sweet roasty malt with strong chocolate notes.

T - Delicious. Sweet chocolate notes with some bitter bite. Almost a bourbon like potency.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium to full bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.

O - This is a really good beer. One of the best Milk Stouts I've ever had.
