3.9/5 rDev +2.6%
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. DOB 02/14/12.
Appearance: Slips out a black body with a medium-small, short-lived, ecru head. Near nil lacing.
Smell: Roasted malts with a chunky vein of burnt cream atop notes of chocolate chips, lesser caramel, and even lighter notes of lemon rind and black licorice.
Taste: Table sugar dosed quick-chilled coffee with round, sweet tastes of bittersweet chocolate and caramel. It's got some sweetness, but definitely not over-the-top. There's a firm roastiness underneath without being a hard, harsh roastiness, helping to curb the initial sweetness along with some underlying hop bitterness. Extremely subtle hints of citrus, florals. Then, a bit of licorice candy. Sweet roastiness on the finish that's actually a bit crisp.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Slightly smooth mouthfeel.
Overall: It's not the creamiest, most smooth milk stout on the block, but it's still fairly solid. I enjoyed it well enough.

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.

3.78/5 rDev -0.5%
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.
