look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Near Ink black, red hue. Opaque but not cloudy, 1' head, leaves solid lacing/webbing especially for a SA brew.

S: Malts, sweet roasted, molasses, caramel, smoked bbq sauce, very sweet very dark.

T: Quite sweet up front, some mocha milkshake flavors. Some lactose. Personally, I dont like it, not a veteran of the style, but its to sweet, and has an off flavor to me.

M: Great carbonation level, light in body, but has some syrupy-ness to it. Tastes high quality/well crafted compared to a lot Sams.

O: Pretty much the opposite expirience of all my SA Brews. Real nice mouthfeel, A. Taste is off and smell is overwhelming. One dimensional brew. I think its just that I dont like the style, I am lactose intolerant afterall. If you like cream stouts try this.
