3.53/5 rDev -7.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A- Pours nearly pitch black with a small fizzy dark tan head that quickly dissapears completely, leaving no lace or retention.
S- sugary sweet chocolate syrup, light roasted character, touch of coffe, lightly herbal and woodsy
T- roasted malty notes give way to a sweet & sugary chocolate flavor, some herbal hop notes on tepee finish with just a touch of coffee on a sweet finish
M- medium-bodied, slightly chewy mouthfeel with low carbonation and a creamy finish, alcohol warmth on the end
O- this one was pretty pretty good, but hard to live up to their blackwater series beers. Worth a try, but probably won't buy again.

12oz bottle served in a pint glass
Pours a very dark brown that is a few shades lighter than black, fairly opaque it doesn't allow much light through but does throw some highlights on the edges. The head is about a finger thick, light tan bubbles that fall to a thin layer in some time. The smell is a touch of roasted malt combined with lactose sugary sweetness and dark caramels or light chocolates. The taste is similar to the smell as the lactose sweetness leads the way bolstered by the chocolate notes and finished with a touch of roasted malt bitterness. Hop aroma and flavor is nearly nonexistent, there may be just a touch of bitterness coming from hops with the bulk from the malt. Trends a bit towards the sweet side, especially up front while the body is incredibly creamy and smooth both due to the lactose and a high level of fine bubbled carbonation. Overall a good stout, I'm not the biggest fan of the style so personally I"m not thrilled by this beer but would say that it is well done and should be liked by fans of milk stouts.
