3.9/5  rDev +2.4%

only $19.99 for a 64oz fill @ joe canal's in woodbridge ($1 additional off for bottle club members)

eyes...
2 and a half fingers of head, almost boiling over on an average pour, cocoa foam with some large bubbles forming, the head intends to stick around for awhile. pitch black tone, no light is escaping this one, lacing is good, this is a good example of the style eyes wise

nose...
dry malt, dry hints of cocoa, slightly burnt french toast, caraway, an almost smoke blanket lies underneath tying it all together, tight and nice, like my sister... every note is in near perfect balance here, me diggy

taste etc...
carbonation bites just right crating a corridor between the initial sweetness to the chocolate bitterness and then cocoa puff sensation that leaves the mouth almost dry, a little lighter body wise than expected, maybe needs a touch of weight there to propel this to excellence, this is creamy without being uber rich, again the carbonation bites just at the right time to really separate the flavors.

verdict?
a nice sipping brew, great with dessert, probably could use this in all sorts of recipes... definitely worth checking out, one of the better milk stouts I have had (not as if they are flooding the market of course)

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.
