Picked up a growler of this from the brewery.

Served in a Solemn Oath glass.

A: Poured black as the Ace of Spades, with a whopping malted milk ball-esque, beige head that clung to the glass as the liquid was siphoned.

S: More IBUs than I was expecting. Pretty awesome, yet understander. Not a dessert, more like slightly overdone toast with some raw cacao spread on top.

T: At first, I noticed the bitterness, then, I got some artificially flavored grape popsicle which was totally divine.

M: I didn't think this was thin like many have stated, especially considering the somewhat session able octane.

O: Quite excellent in my opinion. I just refilled my glass.

Serving type: growler

Enjoyed by me on tap at Chef Paul’s Bavarian Lodge in Lisle, Illinois July 26th, 2012 in the presence of my brother in law Mat. I believe the place had been renamed simply “Bavarian Lodge” but I still refer to it as “Chef Paul’s.” By any name this is a world class BeerAdvocate place. Anyone reading this should seek it out.
Review from notes taken while I enjoyed the beer.

A Hge head, creamy, dark brown. No light gets through the body of this beer. I have always been greatly impressed by the look of beers like this. 4.5

S Dark roast malt but somewhat thin. 4.0

T The dark roast malt is there but the thin smell that I picked up carried right over into the taste. Not that impressive for a Milk Stout which I particularly expect to carry with it a nice creamy thick body. 3.0

M Thin as mentioned above. 2.0

D/O Ok drinkability. Overall just average really. 3.0

On tap at Biggbys Pour House. Served in a North Coast Brewing pint glass.

Appears black in the glass. Fully opaque. Served with about a half inch or so of dark tan head that slowly reduced to a patchy surface coating. Leaves some moderate clumpy lacing. Aroma is full of chocolate, cocoa, and roasted malts with a hint of vanilla. Flavor is similar to the aroma, but with more emphasis on the roasty malts and some citrusy hops. Finishes with a fleeting sweetness and then a hint of char. Full bodied, but not heavy. Mild to moderate bitterness. Overall, a nice beer.

Served in a willibecher at Farmhouse Tavern.

My final (draft) beer of this excursion is gonna be another Solemn Oath brew. I have zero problem with this. It pours a straight onyx topped by a finger of very light sienna foam. The nose comprises dark chocolate, very light molasses, and roasted malts. The taste brings in more of the same, with a sort of barbecue-style roastiness hanging over the proceedings, as though some pork (bacon?) had been smoked nearby whilst this was brewed, the air's essence captured forever in the keg until consumption released it for my tongue to behold. Right on. The body is a stolid medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry-ish finish. Overall, a highly enjoyable, very tasty, and easily drinkable milk stout. This is easily my favorite SO beer thus far, and I hope to see more from them sooner rather than later.
