I wanted to like this, but its not a milk/sweet stout. Its a Black IPA. I know Solemn Oath likes to use a lot of hops in their beer, but I wish they would let some of the softer, malty notes come forward in this one. Instead, I just got bitter hops that overwhelmed the other flavors of the beer.

I won't get this again, but if you like Black IPAs, you may want to give this a shot. If you let this one sit for 6 months, I bet some of the hop bitterness may fade a bit.

Black with a tan head. Poured from a bomber bottle. Good lacing, rock hard head. Malt and light fruit aroma. Slightly mineral character. Roasted malt dominates flavor, warm alcohol, smooth mouthfeel. Good milk stout, not sweet, good example of the style.

On tap at Blue Moon in Madison, Wisconsin. Served in a snifter glass 11/23/2014.

A- Dark coffee-brown body, two finger offwhite head with excellent retention time. Not much in way of lacing. It essentially looks as expected from a milk stout. [3.75]

S- Bold, intense roasted malt aromas whack me in the face along with a dollop of coffee beans. A bit of milk chocolate comes out as the beer warms up as well. Not a lot of subtlety, but certainly has a strong roast component. [3.75]

F- As in the nose, there is a lot of roast on the palate with bitter whole coffee beans and a bit of smoke. Unfortunately, it seems to overpower the lactose sweetness that I anticipated would balance out the bitter roasty flavours on the front end. While this is tasty- who doesn't like roasted malt and coffee? -it is really missing significant balance here. [3.5]

M- Medium bodied, creamy and slick, even a bit sticky. For a 5% ABV milk stout, it takes a while to drink because of its relative lack of balance overall. Finish is driven by bitter coffee-like flavours. [3.75]

O- Unbalanced to be sure, I was missing a bit of sweetness to help balance out the large amounts of roast and smoke that I taste in this beer. It made it more difficult than it should have been for me to drink this beer, despite how much I enjoy that roasted flavour in porters and stouts. [3.25]

Final score: 3.54

A: Dark ruby/nearly black body, light tan creamy head, moderate lacing that quickly retreats back to the body. No carbonation.

S: Hops. Mostly citrus resin, traces of pine. Any roasted malt is an afterthought. I'm worried.

T: Stout-ish. The hops are still present but have taken a back seat to roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, and semi-sweet milk. Mostly bitter, some redeeming balances of sweetness.

M: Finally, a stout quality. Creamy, almost fluffy. Nicely thick, mostly smooth but the requisite carbonation.

O: Someone tried making a black IPA but dropped their chocolate frappuccino in the batch. It was good, and I can't fault them too much because the bottle's description was accurate, except for the listed style. I was braced for it, and I enjoyed it.
