This is a tasty brew. It is just not my type of stout. A bit too sweet, but nontheless well done. On the palette, it lingers with an odd soapy taste. The alcohol is well hidden, and it finishes with a cocoa, rather than a chocolate taste. It is definitely a dessert beer for sure.

750ml corked and caged bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Pours dark appearing black in the glass with a dense slightly tanned head. Takes a couple minutes to dissipate and leaves a thick coating of lacing on the sides.

S: Chocolate is immediately noticeable upon first whiff. A dry milk chocolate aroma almost like a cocoa powder. Touch of fermented fruit and roasted malt. Focus is really on the chocolate.

T: Nice balanced flavor on this one that is quite enjoyable. Chocolate is in the forefront is provides a sweetness throughout. Roasted malts are take a back seat but are still enjoyable.

M: Full body with a real smooth creamy mouthfeel. Dry finish. Very easy drinking for its ABV.

Overall this is a solid chocolate stout with a remarkable mouthfeel. Hard to believe it is as strong as it is. Something I would recommend.

On tap at Donnelly's Public House in Fairport, NY.

Pours black, not super dark, but still black. One inch mocha head, thick strands of lacing down the glass.

Smells include milk chocolate, roasted malt, and some vanilla.

The taste is very similar. Strong sweet milk chocolate flavor here- cocoa powder and Hershey's chocolate bars. Roasted malt is a secondary flavor, but still there. Sweet, but not cloying.

Full bodied, silky smooth mouthfeel. Very drinkable, with no alcohol present.

A good easy drinking stout from a new brewery I want to try more of.
