3.9/5 rDev +2.6%
APPEARANCE: A little brownish light gets through this one at the very bottom of the glass, but otherwise it is black. An off-white, quarter-inch head foams up and then quickly fades into a few wisps on the surface.
SMELL: Pleasant and soft roasted malt on the nose with a coffee and chocolate backbone. Upon sticking my nose in the glass a second time, I'm getting some nuttiness as well.
TASTE: Light, milk chocolate coming through big time, especially up front. Some undertones of coffee sneak in early on and build along with a slight bitter hoppiness towards the finish.
MOUTHFEEL: This 2X is insanely easy to drink. Very light bodied for a stout. Sweet up front, dry in the back and creamy throughout. The 7.5% ABV is nowhere to be found in this thing.
OVERALL: If you want to find a dangerous beer, this is it. It is super easy to drink, but at the same time very tasty and full of flavor.

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.
