bomber sealed with pressure cap.
split 2 ways and poured into a pair of wine stems.
Appearance: black body with a red hue when held up to light. 2 fingers of white/creme colored head that drops down to very thin cap.
Smell: gourmet milk chocolates with a hint of cocoa and lactose/milk sugars. Hint of roasty malt. This beer really has a fantastic nose.
Taste: Mild bitter cocoa seems to dominate this beers flavor profile. Slightly chocolatey and slightly roasty.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. The beer feels a little thin, but the beer is very drinkable.
Overall: Wish that this beer tasted like it smells. Its a good milk stout, but a better flavor profile and a thicker mouthfeel will make this beer very desirable and make it a beer at the top of its style.

An interesting beer to have while making supper. Thanks to rudzud for giving me this to try.
Pours a dark colored fizzy 1 finger head that fades slower than I expected from the many bigger fizzy bubbles, but still a med pace, decent frothy lacing, just about pitch black beer.
Nose just erupts with cocoa and chocolate, milk chocolate and a creamy lush chocolate, cocoa nibs and a little baker's choc, even a bit fudgey, I think a hint of lactose through that, and a little doughy cookie note, bit of a chocolate chip cookie.
Taste is more of the same, lots of chocolate and cocoa, quite a creamy milk chocolate, even a little chocolate milk but not a lot as a bit of lactose comes through. Again a mild doughy cookie malt center with hint of caramel and more chocolate chip cookie, mild dry cocoa powder too. Hint of an acrid like roasty malt as well with touch of coffee. Finish is a little sweet but quite dry, lactose dry finish, with a little more lush chocolate and cocoa, mild bitterness, and that's about it.
Mouth is med bod, fairly creamy and lush, nice carb.
Overall not bad, lots of great chocolate and cookie dough, nice cocoa and lactose milk chocolate, even a hint of roasted malt too, pretty tasty and enjoyable. Thanks Matt!
