3.78/5 rDev -0.5%
Poured from bottle into snifter.
Appearance - Pours a very deep brown, almost black. A head is basically nonexistnat and not a whole lot of lacing either.
Smell - Some chocolate and cocoa aroma with a very small amount of a sweet caramel like aroma. Overall for its style I would have expected a bit more.
Taste - Up front you are hit with a big sweet-chocolate (like chocolate milk) flavor. While paling in comparison to the cocoa, a little bit of roasted malt, coffee, and dried fruit flavors work their way toward the end. A very nice flavor profile.
Mouthfeel - It has a thinner body then would be expected, but not by too much. The carbonation was possibly a bit too high, but again not bad.
Overall - The taste of the brew makes of for some lacking in other catagories. A nice stout to try.

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.
