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.

Poured into snifter; jet black with a solid finger of mocha head.
Smells of chocolate, lesser coffee, dark malt.
Tastes of big dark malt, lots of milk and dark chocolate, and some coffee. Light dark fruit and caramel.
Mouthfeel is big and full, well carbonated but clean.
Overall, a tasty and well done stout. I'd love to find the other variants someday.
