500ml Bottle from Bessettes Colton NY for $8 - 2012 Edition

Appearance - Dark brown colour with an above average size frothy light brown head. I can't make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for around 6-7 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, chocolate, grains, coffee

Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, chocolate, and coffee. There is also some roasted notes and a bit of a dark fruit flavour.

Overall - Something about it reminds me a bit of a milk stout. But still, the flavours are fantastic. It has a quality chocolate flavour that I also get from Speedway stout or even Hunapuh. Very easy to drink and great balance. Only fault is maybe the mouthfeel.
