look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

This beer pours with a one-finger head that dissipated fairly quickly. The color is a virtually opaque brown. The aroma was not outstanding: some toasty notes but not as marked as expected. The taste did not disappoint in delivering a rich, toasty chocolate deepness. This beer has a strong malty sweet character with an underplayed hoppiness that accentuates toward the end. The characteristics of the sweetness and hopiness are characteristic of this style. But the sweetness may be overplayed. The carbonation was at a medium level, and the body was full -- almost syrupy. Overall, I would have this beer again, even though I prefer a somewhat less sweet version of this style.

Serving type: on-tap

Age: 03/19/12
First Impression: Bitter sweet aroma upon opening of bottle.

Appearance: Dark black body with a light mocha head, body allows no light through. 4.0, head was small but had a nice fluffy air to it.

Smell: same bitter sweet aroma as upon opening smells of brown sugar. Not as strong as I personally prefer but still not bad.

Taste: Not bad...slightly watery but the flavor is very much there. More sweet than bitter. Beautiful combination of the sweet and the bitter. Great blend of hops and malts.

Mouthfeel: Perfect amount of carbonation for the flavor, not too heavy of a feel,just enough of a presence to be a stout...about mid range I would say...not to strong not too weak...

Overall: This is a fairly good stout...for those who don't like it too strong or too weak this is a beer for all. Finds a perfect middle ground among stouts. I will definitely be having this beer again and will recommend it strongly to friends.

look: 4.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottled 2/13/2013. Poured into a glass goblet.

Flat black color with nice, dark-tan foamy head. Ok retention and pretty good lacing on the glass. There’s not much in the aroma, save for a little maltiness and some sweet lactose. The beer is quite sweet with bitter malts and bittersweet chocolate as well. It has a very nice roasty flavor that pairs well with the sweetness from the lactose. The best part is it’s mouthfeel - nice and thick on the palate, deliciously creamy and smooth. At the end the hops become more evident and they complement the sweetness with a nice bitterness. There’s not a lot of depth or “oomph” in the flavors, but it’s a very drinkable milk stout.
