A: Pours black with a little bit of brown tint. One finger tan head that settles fairly quickly to a small ring around the edge.

S: Roasted coffee beans, lactose, and a hint of campfire smoke.

T: Coffee with cream and sugar. Malted milk balls. Toasted bread. A hint of vanilla.

M: Full bodied with a creamy finish. Not much carbonation.

O: Very nice milk stout. I would love to see this in 6 packs and in much wider distribution.

22oz bottle poured into a globe.

A: Pours a deep opal black. The creamy tan head retains at a half inch for the duration. Lacing coats the glass in a webbing.

S: Hershey's syrup, malted milk balls, hazelnut iced coffee. Roasted malts have the edge smoothed over by all the sweetness. Tight red berry fruitiness is buried deeply.

T: Mocha, iced coffee, Hershey's syrup, malted milk balls, sugary lactose, muted notes of char and charcoal are bracketed by the sweetness and seem smooth and tame as a result. Quick flash of red berries and a very quick hint of alcohol. Roasted barley emerges a bit more toward the finish. Roasted barley, tootsie rolls, and lactose on the finish,

M: Medium-thick body. Silky smooth and creamy. Low carbonation.

O: An all around great milk stout. They could really give Left Hand and Duck Rabbit a run for the money if they could get it into regular distribution at a comparable six pack price.
