Got a weird smokiness off of this beer. Still a fine, if average, beer, but surprising to find that in a milk stout with no mention of smoked malt or other adjuncts.

Bottle courtesy photomike. Pours deep coffee brown with a thin tan head. Chocolatey and fruity aroma, maybe cherries and also a certain nuttiness. Flavor is similar with chocolate, light roast, a little acidity, marshmallows, milk. Mouthfeel is a little too milky and weird, body is a little thin for the abv. Messy, incohesive, but not offensive.

Thanks to merlin48 for sampling this one with me.

Pours a deep black with a brown head that falls to a ring not much lace.

Aroma is spot on for the style sweet roasted malts, milk chocolate, light coffee notes. Plenty of lactose sweetness in the nose, nice.

Taste is weird first thing I notice is prickly carbonation, not a plus for this style. roasted malts some chocolate and lactose notes. Flavor is good but whole thing for me is ruined by the mouthfeel, every sip I take its just to fizzy for a stout.

Mouthfeel is medium but carbonation is too much for the style and a distraction.

Overall this one is a big disappointment for me considering FFF brews are usually superior.

Poured from a bomber (no date) into a dimpled glass mug. Pours a super dark brown that appears black with a thin layer of head that fizzled immediately to almost nothing. Aroma had a roasteded malt, golden oats, chocolate, lactic sweetness, and a bit of hazelnut. Flavor had a nice roasted malt base, golden oats, milk chocolate, mild coffee, tons of lactic, and light bitterness to it. There was a quite a dose of milkiness, but it seems light on the texture. Mouthfeel is light and silky and the carbonation on the low side. Might had tasted better fresh, perhaps? It had nice flavors and a good example of style, but was too overpowered with that lactose milk sugar for me. I cannot stand beer with too much of that stuff.

Another brew sent by Cuzco as part of the Blind Beers BIF, this was poured into my Lost Abbey stemware.

Inky black, a starless night. The head is thin, light tan, and fizzy. It's gone within seconds.

Hmm. Soft smoke and a bunch of teriyaki. Big handfuls of anise, a bit of sweet cocoa.

The flavor pretty well mirrors the aroma. Anise and soy are here up front, along with a little dark chocolate and tangy prunes. The swallow brings sweet milk, cocoa and smoke. Lingering notes of smoky meat.

Body is medium-light, with moderate carbonation. Breaks into fizz as it moves about. Just a touch of alcohol heat.

This has been a want for a while. Glad I got the chance to try it without bias.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3

Look: Black and totally opaque with a 1/2 inch dark tan head and ok retention with some spotty lacing

Smell: Touch of lactose sweetness some roasted malt and a bit of alcohol

Taste: Your are greeted by a touch of alcohol backed up by some lactose sweetness the back end carries some roasted malt, licorice and chocolate

Mouthfeel: Medium body and mild carbonation and a bit silky

Overall: I honestly am not impressed with this beer. I found the flavor profile a bit muddled and sweet to the point that it was a more distracting than it was good. I am however glad I got the chance to try this beer but I will not seek it out again

Pours effervescent and black, crowned with a full mousse-like brown head. The foam drops quickly, and noisily as well.

Sweetened and creamed coffee in the nose. Abundant roasted scents.

Milk chocolate is the first flavor I notice. Followed quickly by dark chocolate, roasted coffee, some faint citrus hop brightness. There seems to be some malted milk ball flavor that's really nice. Not bad at all. I don't notice any of the 7% alcohol. Roasted flavor and malted milk ball flavor come forward as it warms. More hop flavor would surely be a plus.

Full and silky. Not over carbonated, but still has that pop to it.

If I ever see it on tap, I may give it another go 'round. Other than that, it was nice to try, good to drink, but I'll probably not get it again in the future. Although on second thought, I'll more than likely get next years release just out of curiosity. Overall impression: good, but not great.

Poured black, could see some red around the edges, and had a thick tan head that laced the entire way down the glass. Smelled of vanilla, my un beery friend said it smelled like a fruit rollup. Taste was of roasty malts, some coffee and I thought, an intense vanilla. The sweetness was intense in this brew, and made me a little sick to my stomach. As good as I thought it was, I do not know if I can ever have another one again.
