Poured from a 12oz bottle into my palm glass

A-dark brown. can barely see through it at all. only at the top where the glass is thinner. thick head that fell into a small spotty layer across the top.

S-smells creamy. I am getting some chocolate and oatmeal.

T-bit my tongue at first. I am assuming its the carbonation. Not sure. following with some creamy chocolate oatmeal. Maybe a bit of espesso up front.

Mf-has a little coffee aftertaste to it. Sort of between a cream and milk texture. fairly carbonation. Medium body for a stout.

O-Pretty good. Definitely worth the price. Not the best of its kind by any means but definitely worth the try. I could easily see myself getting this one again.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a very dark brown, almost black with a little color visible at the bottom of the glass. There is a 1.5 finger tan pillowy head with excellent retention.

Smells of roasted malt and some coffee. Also a slight mettalic smell. Not sure where it comes from.

Tastes of caramel, coffee, and dark chocolate. There is plenty of roast here that really makes itself known during the finish along with a nice bitterness. Mouthfeel is ok but could be a touch thicker.

Overall this is a really good beer. If I didn't have Duck Rabbit milk stout available locally this would be a go-to beer for me.
