4.35/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: The coal black liquid arrives with several fingers of head that leaves a curtain of lace behind

Smell: Chocolate and coffee

Taste: Milk chocolate and coffee, up front, with a hint of dark fruit and caramel that adds complexity; after the swallow, the milk chocolate flavor dominates the finish though there is a roasty quality the lingers throughout and becomes more noticeable in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation; some warmth develops in the gullet

Overall: A very impressive imperial stout that brings a rich chocolate flavor with a coffee twist

Serving type: on-tap

On nitro tap at the Common Table.

The beer pours a dark brown color with a nitro-induced tan head. The aroma is full of chocolate and coffee notes, as expected. The flavor features a lot of chocolate and some light smoke, as well as a ton of roasted malt notes. Slick mouthfeel and low carbonation.

Serving type: nitro-tap

Required two pours from the bartender. The cup runneth over anyway, with a beige dome. Leaves a blanket of lace with some emphasis on the rings after each sip. Deep, dark brown where no light shines through.

Very mild smell. Creamy with some "refrigerator" aromas.

Lots of milk chocolate up front. Quite sweet. Lots of cocoa which lasts through the aftertaste. Rich body, more than the Irish dry stouts. Low carbonation. This could be be chocolate porter as there are no burnt elements. Still, it's a wonderfully flavorful beer to seek out.

4.11/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

12 oz bottle courtesy of fthomasl pours a rich black color with a dense cap of khaki head. Nice retention and great lacing.

Nose is sweet chocolate with a mild plum fruit and brown bread. Smells like a milk stout, thats for sure.

Taste starts with chocolate and mild roast, followed up with a surprising amount of grassy hop. The finish is long and dusty with the alcohol finally making its presence known. The mouthfeel is very nice, the beer is perfectly carbonated and the body is silky smooth. It is not as heavy and sweet as I thought from the aroma, but it is more than enough to compliment a 8.5% ABV. This is quite a tasty treat, I am looking forward to getting some more of this on my next trip up to the metroplex!

3.61/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours an opaque black color. A well formed, tightly packed, two finger tan head rises with good retention. Rings of lace are left all the way down the glass.
S: Milk chocolate, roasted malt, cream and coffee. Very nice, if a bit simplistic.
T: Follows the nose. The roasted malt is more apparent up front. Sweet milk chocolate, creamed coffee as well. Though a metallic/tinny flavor persists throughout. Then the sweetness lingers on forever.
M/D: A big full body and moderate carbonation. Inky, sticky, and slick. Not hard to drink. The alcohol is present, but more warming than anything. Still a slow sipper because of the large, almost over powering sweetness as this warms.

This is an enjoyable imperial Milk Stout. I am enjoying sipping on this, though the tinny flavor is a bit off putting for me. Maybe just variation from bottle to bottle? Something worth a try, and I will be sure to finish the four pack without a problem.

12oz bottle

Pours a deep dark black color with a light tan head. The aroma is sweet dark roasted malts, cocoa, and a touch of smoke. The taste like the aroma starts out with sweet dark roasted malts with a lingering sweet and roasty notes in the finish. The mouthfeel is very smooth and medium bodied. Overall, this is a solid milk stout that is worth a try for anyone who enjoys the style.

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

Inky black pour, with a medium brown finger of head. Nice splotchy lace. The aroma is very roasty, some coffee, vanilla and soft notes of chocolate. Sweet, somewhat sugary. Taste is more chocolaty with vanilla, a bit milky, with a slight cocoa dryness and roasted background. Creamy, naturally, with a strong medium to full body, light carbonation.

Very well done, tasty milk stout. Drinkable, no real booziness.
