Body is a total black hole except for a thin line of light brown highlights at the bottom edge. Light tan level head breaks down quickly. Thin lace but a lot of coverage.

Cafe au lait aroma evident at arm's lenght as soon as the bottle is uncapped. Up close, it's the same with some additional roastiness.

On the tongue, it's coffee au lait, coffee black, and a shot of chocolate syrup. Subtle hop bite at swallow. Everything blends in the finish.

Rich smooth mouthfeel as is wanted for the style.

A really tasty milk stout. Alcohol well hidden, seems more session than imperial. Recommended.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Bottled on 02/08/12.

Appearance: Pours a dark black with a little brownish red at the bottom. Lots of bubbles and a solid three fingers of creamy light tan head with good retention. Lots of lace on the glass.

Smell: Sweet dark roasted malts with big hints of chocolate and lactose. Also some hints of oatmeal, milk, coffee, and caramel. Light presence of earthy hops in the background along with a light hint of dark fruit. A pretty sweet and chocolate forward aroma.

Taste: Starts out with a big sweet taste of the roasted malts with a good amount of chocolate, oats, and lactose with a hint of coffee and milk. Midway comes a surprisingly strong presence of hops for a sweet stout. Hops are a mix of citrus and earthy hops. Pretty well balanced even though chocolate is the most noticeable taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Very creamy. Somewhat syrupy but very slick. Starts sweet and has a fairly drying finish.

Overall: A pretty solid stout. Nice hop presence for a milk/sweet stout.

Jet black, completely opaque, the head was stiff and bubbly.

Dry malty, crackery and slightly charred there's a certain weakness." 2X" should be more pronounced.

The taste is grassy and earthy. Charred malts with a dry Graham cracker crust, there's a hidden chocolatey taste but that natural charred grass wins out.

Overall I like it, very rough around the edge but smooth at the same time.
