3.78/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12oz bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: extremely dark brown with a strong haze. Head is a finger of creamy tan foam with decent retention. A pretty attractive beer!

Smell: smooth and sweet with a little bit of chocolate character and a robust but not overpowering coffee character. Good, if not terribly complex.

Taste: sweet and roasty with some plum and date character; most of the chocolate and coffee are left back in the aroma. Sweetness is a bit strong at the end. Not bad.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and creaminess. I like it!

Overall: a little bit on the sweet side, even for the style, but still a tasty brew.

3.75/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A - A hard pour produces a thick 4 finger khaki colored head on top of a viscous black body. Sticky lace clings the glass

S - Coffee, chocolate, char notes. Nothing major or over the top.

T - Coffee and bitter chocolate, underlying lactose sweetness keeps bitterness from getting out of hand, char taste and hop bite in the finish.

M - Thick, creamy and low on carbonation. Coating feeling on the palate.

O - An easy drinking stout. Sweetness gives way to bitter in the end. Char flavor dominates and hop bitterness makes an unexpected and oddly placed appearance. No sign of the 7.5% ABV. Overall a good milk stout.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours and inky black with some head and decent retention. Nose is mostly chocolate and sweet dark roast. Taste follows with chocolate and sweet dark roast. Mouthfeel is great, really smooth. Overall a fine beer. I haven't had much experience with milk stouts, but I thought it was very nice.
