Draft pint at Monk's, quick review from written notes.

Dark brown with mahogany edges. Compact head of khaki colored foam. A few concentric rings of lacing form, with spotty bits in between.

Mild roasty aroma, slightly metallic unfortunately.

Milk chocolate and malted milk ball flavors, slightly metallic again. Light roast bitterness, medium bodied, somewhat creamy. Overall it was ok, but the metallic notes threw off it's more redeeming qualities.

A: Dark brown with a thin white head, which fades quickly to a wisp of white lacing.
S: Roasting coffee and caramel in the forefront with chocolate in the background.
T: A pleasant mix of coffee and bitter chocolate.
M: Rich and velvety with low carbonation.
O: A pleasant departure from many other overly sweet coffee stouts I've tried recently.
