Pours a black color. 1/2 inch head of a tan color. Great retention and good lacing. Smells of sweet malt, roasted malt, oatmeal, chocolate, alcohol, hops, and slight yeast. Fits the style of a Milk / Sweet Stout. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. There is also a noticeable bitterness from the roasted malts. Tastes of roasted malt, sweet malt, hops, hint of yeast, chocolate, hint of oatmeal, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, a complex beer, a little too much hops for my taste, but good chocolate flavors though.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

A: Black as hell. Mocha-colored head with fine lacing.

S: Sour lactose, sweet chocolate, and caramel. A hint of roasted notes lie beneath it all. Very sweet.

T: The lactose is upfront and a bit souring. Never liked milk stouts for that reason. The chocolate comes through with thick roast. The alcohol isn't too abrasive for being 10%.

M: Creamy, just how a milk stout should be. No real noticable carbonation.

O: Milk stouts have never been my favorite due to the souring lactose. This one is quite sweet, but it's not too bad. One of the better milk stouts I've tried. Check it out.

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

Appearance: Just about black as night with a dark mocha head; decent lacing

Smell: Cocoa and roast, with undertones of lactose and a hint of smoke

Taste: Sweetened milk chocolate, up front, with the roasted tones taking over in the middle; hints of black licorice, soy sauce, macadamia nuts and vanilla combine to provide a balanced finish to what otherwise might be a very sweet beer; a touch ashy in the aftertaste but the chocolate really lingers

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation

Overall: Pretty decent milk stout but not something to drink in quantity as it becomes a chocolate overdose after a while
