look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - The beer was black with a black color with murky brown highlights. Some bubbles clung to the sides of the glass.

Smell - A big coffee whiff comes through in the aroma.

Taste - Big coffee and chocolate come through in the initial taste. The coffee notes are creamy, but not as creamy as I would expect from a milk stout. As a whole, the beer is only modestly sweet. The modest sweetness finishes in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - The maltiness really sticks to the inside of the cheeks and tongue. It is smooth and creamy as a milk stout should be.

Overall - I like this one a lot. I can't wait for more Hunter variants!
