4.03/5 rDev +6.1%
Served on-tap in a plain tumbler pint at Joe Pizza in Simsbury, Conn.
A: Poured a very dark brown, nearly black color with a thin, one-finger head of bubbly, off-white carbonation which left a bit of lacing and a slick of foam in the glass.
S: Highly roasted malt characteristic with a sweet, rustic bread dough scent thrown in. Hints of coffee, hot cocoa and some herbal, charred hops spice up the smell a bit.
T: Smooth, sweet and mellow roasted flavor throws oatmeal and chocolate malt sweetness at the palate first. A sweet, milky flavor takes hold, letting off some creamy, caramel and toffee flavors before washing back with a mild, roasted bittersweet cocoa nib flavor that brings it all together against a slight, spicy and boozy aftertaste.
M: Rich, bold and sweet with a little lactose left on the palate. Smooth and balanced throughout, it doesn't drink as strong as it is.
O: A pretty well-done double-milk stout from Southern Tier, ringing in at a dangerously drinkable 7.5% ABV. It's good and certainly worth a try, although you couldn't session it for several reasons. It's pleasant enough to have one or two over a meal or with dessert and I'd definitely have it up again.

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.
