3.86/5 rDev +1.6%
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass at about 45 degrees to start, sipping it as it warms.
Pours a dark brown, not quite black with a frothy uneven tan head. Lots of large bubbles creating a foamy head. Thin lacing that doesn't hang around.
Aroma is sweetness with chocolate and a hint of coffee. Can pick up the chocolate in the taste, and some roasted malt. Not as sweet as I expected, and some bitterness on the finish. It states 2 varieties of hops and 3 varieties of malts, but they seem muddled together without giving the beer any character. Still, it improves as the beer warms so better to let it sit a bit.
Body is a little thin and fizzy, would like the carbonation down a bit and the thickness up.
A good beer, but there are a lot of stouts out there that I prefer.

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.
