look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Had on tap at Pour Farm, New Bedford

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, moderate carbonation, black in color, opaque

Smell: char and cream

Taste: dark chocolate, light char, cream, and a light smoky backbone

Mouthfeel: heavy body, sweet with char bitterness, low carbonation

Overall: A good not great sweet stout with just enough char to offset the sweetness. The alcohol sneaks up on you. I would get this again, but I would not rush out for it.

Dark, opaque body; light brown head with clinging sheets of suds on the sides of the glass. Deep roasted grain scent; dark chocolate; cocoa nibs; coffee. Taste follows the smell, coupled with a subtle hop bitterness with a deceptively hidden alcohol warmth. Medium-heavy body; thick and chewy; semisweet finish.

Sure, there's some evident sweetness to this brute, but the overall flavor character brings way more to the table. Bold and delightful...

4.14/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

appearance: Very dark and opaque brown. A thick mocha head on the pour. A bit of ruby highlights sneak in when held to light. Yep, looks like a stout ought to.
smell: Very nice. A little roastiness but velvety smooth. Smells like semi-sweet chocolate. No hint of alcohol.
taste: Very much like the nose. The 10% makes itself known though. Still smooth but has some sack.
overall: very nice take on an imp stout. According to Brash drinkin this is like "making love to your mouth like a horny sorority girl." Thankfully that ain't true but it's a damn good beer.

4.04/5  rDev +2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

22 oz bottle courtesy of fthomasl pours a viscous black color with a really dark brown head...almost Ten Fidy dark. Decent retention and lace.

Nose is malted milk balls with a lactose-y sugar sweetness. Light licorice and herbal hop.

Ohhh, taste is nice. Not overly sweet or rich but has a nice roasty presence most milk stouts lack. Hides the ABV very well and the mouthfeel is silky. I like this quite a bit, well done.

Pours black as ink. Gurgles into the bottom of my snifter. Produces a two finger milk chocolate head that recedes to a small ring around the glass.

On the nose is milk chocolate and booze. Some toasted malt comes in on the end but it's mostly booze.

Taste is boozy. Bittersweet chocolate hits first and there are some toasty notes. But the alcohol really takes over on the end.

This beer is retardedly thick.

The booze kills this beer for me. Doesn't hide the alcohol well AT ALL.
