3.93/5 rDev +3.1%
A: Dark, opaque brownish-black. Not much of a head, just a small skim of tan froth that quickly disappears and doesn't leave any lacing behind.
S: Chocolate, coffee, the distinctive sugary sweet lactose aroma of a milk stout.
T/M: Lots of sweet chocolate up front, followed by the gradual surfacing of the coffee, which rises to the top by the end of each sip for a nice, slightly bitter followthrough. Despite not being too strong in terms of ABV, there's also a hint of alcohol bite on the way down. Great balance of sweet and astringent. Not very smooth for a milk stout, it's a bit spiky and carbonated-feeling.
O: A very good milk stout that's not overpoweringly sweet but has a nice balance. Kind of a baby brother to Southern Tier's line of big stouts in bombers.

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 -0.8%
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.
