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.

Served on nitro tap at Farmhouse in Burlington.
Serves up soooo nice looking, jet black body with half a finger of thick creamy khaki head.
Not a high volume of aromas, but it was rich and roasty, good sweetness.
Taste was delicious touch on the thin side.
Mouthfeel was silky, velvety a touch thin.
Overall, a lot to like with this beer.
