3.5/5 rDev -7.9%
Poured into my Ballast Point shaker pint after a long day. A buddy was telling me how much he enjoyed this, so I'm looking forward to giving it a shot.
A: Very dark, almost black with just a bit of brown tinge on the edges of the glass. Very light tan head, just over one finger after a fairly aggressive pour. A great start...looks damn good.
S: Booze. A little malt. A pretty muted nose and not really what I was expecting. Disappointing.
T: Sweet up front with a good amount of cocoa in there. Odd metallic aftertaste that I'm not a big fan of. Not as much booze as I expected after the smell. Thankfully the metallic taste fades as the beer warms up and there's a heightening of the lactose sugar over time. In other words, let it warm up a bit.
M: Good amount of carbonation and pretty smooth at the end. Very creamy feel...nice.
O: I had high expectations for this after my friend's recommendation. Though I wasn't turned off by it, the beer didn't quite do it for me as much as I'd hoped it would. B-/C+.

A- pours black with a 2 finger dark tan head. Small blotches of lacing polka-dot the glass.
S- chocolate and a lot of pine.
T- roasted malts and bitter, dark chocolate. Nice amount of pine hops that give it some bitterness.
M- medium body and carbonation. Has a slightly dry finish.
O- nice milk stout with good amount of hoppiness, which I like.

12 oz. bottle. Pours coffee black with an airy tan head of about 3-fingers that fades slowly to a thin cap. Not much lacing. Aroma is mocha, fruity and a little earthy.
Taste starts out with lactose sweetness and roasty grains, followed by a rich mocha toffee character. Finishes with a clean bitterness that is complimented by baking chocolate and a slight earthiness. Alcohol is well hidden. The sweetness becomes a little too prevalent as the stout begins to warm up, and the mouthfeel is a bit watery considering it's strength. Medium-low carbonation.
This beer is full of delicious and distinctive flavors considering there are no actual flavorings added, but I'm left wishing it had a more substantial mouthfeel.
