Black pour with a tan one-finger head. Aroma of sweet chocolate and roasted malt. Creamy and sweet flavor with a light roasted malt, vanilla and milk chocolate flavors upfront. Also has a slight bitter coffee/espresso flavor on the backend. Medium bodied.

A bit too bitter IMO, but not bad. Great if you want to get buzzed quicker!

12oz bottle into a snifter
Bottled on: 5/9/14

A: Very dark brown during the pour, and then black as it rests in the glass. 1.5 fingers width of light tan heads builds and then has great retention before dissipating down. Leaves tons of lacing. 4.25

S: Lots of heavy cream/lactose notes, some roasty notes, bakers chocolate. A unique, almost tart aroma that I cant quite place. Good but not great. 3.75

T: Roasty, lactose, chocolate, bitter coffee. Long lingering flavors of bakers chocolate and coffee. 4

M/D: Full bodied but not necessarily thick. Carbonation on the heavier side but appropriate. Drinkability is good. 3.75

O: Very good, not one of my favorite Southern Tier stout, but certainly worth a try. 4
