4.03/5 rDev +6.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Bottled on 02/08/12.
Appearance: Pours a dark black with a little brownish red at the bottom. Lots of bubbles and a solid three fingers of creamy light tan head with good retention. Lots of lace on the glass.
Smell: Sweet dark roasted malts with big hints of chocolate and lactose. Also some hints of oatmeal, milk, coffee, and caramel. Light presence of earthy hops in the background along with a light hint of dark fruit. A pretty sweet and chocolate forward aroma.
Taste: Starts out with a big sweet taste of the roasted malts with a good amount of chocolate, oats, and lactose with a hint of coffee and milk. Midway comes a surprisingly strong presence of hops for a sweet stout. Hops are a mix of citrus and earthy hops. Pretty well balanced even though chocolate is the most noticeable taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Very creamy. Somewhat syrupy but very slick. Starts sweet and has a fairly drying finish.
Overall: A pretty solid stout. Nice hop presence for a milk/sweet stout.
Serving type: bottle
