look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Opaque, dark borwn color showing light transmission around the edges, with a peripheral ring of mocha-tinted bubbles. Light lacing remains on the glass.

S: Roasted and dark, but more dried fruit than chocolate. Rustic nuttiness emerges as the beer warms. No alcohol is detected.

T: Begins barely off-dry, with baker's yeast and mild dark fruit. Sweetness tips up for an instant the same time as acidity pings into the middle. Chocolate is very well-established during the second act, significantly unctuous and reverting to dryness. The finish is of cacao nibs--nutty and roasty, expanding on the palate with as much aroma as flavor. No alcohol is detected.

M: Medium viscosity, creamy on the palate, with low carbonation.

D/O: Relatively strong for a milk stout, this beer hides its 8.5% abv well as it delivers the promised chocolate. While the smell is simplistic, the taste is focused on chocolate but with enough room for other features. It is texturally very strong, doing everything that a stout should.

ST: Bottle poured into glass

A: Nice dark color. Finished pour leaves a good head. Lacing all the way down.

S: Light nose on the chocolate; heavy on the roasted malt.

T: Starts with a heavy roast taste, then finishes with a smooth chocolate taste with a little hops to it (not a bunch)

MF: Light on the body and heavy on the flavor.

O: Exceptional beer. I could drink this any time of the year, so I am sad that it is a seasonal. If you see this and haven't had it, you should.

I poured a bottle into a mug.

Appearance- Deep, dark brown with a fingers worth of tan colored head. Light amount of lacing.

Smell- Light aroma of roasted malt at the start that turns into a milk chocolate smell.

Taste- Light roasted malt and slightly bitter chocolate flavor that turns into a nice milk chocolate aftertaste. YUM!

Mouthfeel- On the light end of full bodied and very creamy. Light amount of carbonation.

Overall- Delicious. This just became my favorite milk stout.
