3.78/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
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.

12oz bottle served in a pint glass
Pours a very dark brown that is a few shades lighter than black, fairly opaque it doesn't allow much light through but does throw some highlights on the edges. The head is about a finger thick, light tan bubbles that fall to a thin layer in some time. The smell is a touch of roasted malt combined with lactose sugary sweetness and dark caramels or light chocolates. The taste is similar to the smell as the lactose sweetness leads the way bolstered by the chocolate notes and finished with a touch of roasted malt bitterness. Hop aroma and flavor is nearly nonexistent, there may be just a touch of bitterness coming from hops with the bulk from the malt. Trends a bit towards the sweet side, especially up front while the body is incredibly creamy and smooth both due to the lactose and a high level of fine bubbled carbonation. Overall a good stout, I'm not the biggest fan of the style so personally I"m not thrilled by this beer but would say that it is well done and should be liked by fans of milk stouts.
