Tasted 16 February 2013.
Pours black in the glass, deep brown at the edges. Half-finger of pale tan head, relaxes to a thin ring around the surface, and a touch of lacing.
Smell is a light milk stout topped with woody cacao and coffee. It's thin; fortunately the lactose adds some body and smoothness. A touch of smoke leaks in from the dark roast. But mostly it's bottom and top, and hollow in the middle. Lacking body, oomph, robustness.
Taste is thin, a bit flat, and dominated by a char bitterness and wood. I get very little milk or chocolate, which is disappointing. This beer isn't terrible, but I'd have a hard time calling it good.
Mouthfeel is fine. It's a low-ABV stout, so it's not super surprising that it's thin. But the milky feel isn't there, and it's even thinner than I'd expect. Carbonation is fine.
Nothing impressive about this one. As I said above, it's not terrible. But I'm not loving it.

Black in color with no light penetrating this brew. A fingernail of khaki colored head rests on top. Brussels lacing. I smell lactose,chocolate, and dark malt. The flavor is bitter dark malt in the front of the palate. There's a restrained amount of chocolate and lactose present. The mouth is smooth and creamy.

A- pours dark brown/black with an obnoxiously large khaki head.
S- milk chocolate, cocoa
T- cocoa, sweet, milk chocolate, chocolate gets more bitter towards the finish
M- thin body and high carbonation
O- a good representation of the style with copious amounts of chocolate. It could stand to have a smoother mouthfeel but tasty none the less.

pours cola brown, little bit of cocoa cream head.
lots of bitter chocolate on the nose. roasted malt and slight coffee.
although a milk stout, i picked up very little sweetness. heavy on bitter chocolate and roasted malt. not overly complex and slightly one dimensional but that is not really a bad thing. would have liked a bit more sweetness.
light body, moderate carbonation.
decent overall, good stout, easy to drink.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Despite thr description, it is not black as the night. Deep brown. Collar of foam and a single tentacle of foam.
Smell - Really chocolatey. Impressive milk chocolate aroma. Slight peanut butter aroma.
Taste - Less impressive, but still decent. Milk chocolate. Less intense. Not much else going on. Not a lot of lactose, which I like. Still has a bit of peanut butter to it.
Mouthfeel - Very light and thin. Medium carbonation.
Overall - Nice chocolate. Maybe I had this beer too late in the tasting, but I don't get a lot else out of it.
