In truth, this beer has been hiding in the beer fridge since last spring, awaiting a cold winter night like tonight. It pours thick, black, like the sky it reflects, with a thin ring at the edge, much like tonight's crescent moon.
Aromatic like cold black coffee and dark chocolate, roasty and filling the entire nose with big smells. It is not though a head-filler, which I'd expect from a double.
Thick and slightly syrupy, with puffs of smoke, charcoal, chocolate and coffee - the charcoal comes through a little thick though, overwhelming some of the other tasty characteristics.
Percolating and carbonated on the tongue, enough to help round out the roastiness.
It's fine to drink - warming in the winter months. Just not as enjoyable as others I've enjoyably enjoyed in the past.

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.
