3.99/5  rDev +5%

Poured into a Due South Brewing Co. DOB 04/16/12

A- Pours a totally opaque black color with a 1/4 inch tan head that doesn't retain long before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a thin, spaced-out layer of surface foam. Jagged ring of resilient lacing.

S- Dark chocolate, vanilla and roasted malt. Some brief caramel and vanilla sweetness. Hardly any alcohol fume.

T- Semi-roasty with a balanced bitterness and creaminess. Alcohol is very well masked. Notes of cocoa, light char and light vanilla. Sweetness comes through more as it warms.

M- Slightly creamy with medium carbonation and a hearty body.

O- Not as good as I was hoping, but an easy-drinking, well-constructed stout nonetheless.

Poured into a glass mug.

A: Dark nearly opaque red-brown with one-finger, tan, creamy head that lasted a couple minutes and left a nice film. Pretty good lacing.

S: Roasted chocolate.

T: Moderate sweetness and light bitterness. Chocolate and milk. Roasted malt.

M: Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

O: This tastes more chocolatey than most milk stouts I've had. Almost tastes like chocolate milk beer.

Pours a khaki, three-finger head that fades quickly leaving traces of lace. Black color, no highlights. Strong carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Chocolate/coffee nose. Flavor is sweet chocolate and coffee, hops balance. Decent double stout. $2.00 for a 12oz bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

Appearance: Poured with brown head that lasted only for a minute or so…a few bubbles along the side, it’s too dark to see any real action in the middle…this beer is a very attractive, extremely dark brown…(3.5/5)

Smell: Coffee and sweet cream from beginning to end…they blend nicely with a distinct malt base…very sweet and aromatic…(3.75/5)

Taste: Coffee, malt and cream are the prevalent flavors…the higher alcohol content is noticeable…(4/5)

Mouthfeel: Love the coffee and cream flavors…very nice from beginning to end, though I would have loved a bit more malt/hop and less alcohol…(3.75/5)

Overall: This is a very drinkable beer…the lactose compliments the variety of hops and malts making a delicious blend…there is no head which would have been nice, but I definitely could drink a couple of these while watching the daily show…(3.75/5)

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a mug. Beautiful jet black with hints of deep red/brown in light; fizzy dark brown head that dissipated quickly. Smells malty, with chocolate and roasted notes. Taste is surprisingly good; it goes all over your tongue with chocolate and roasted goodness. The sweet chocolate tempers the bitterness of the roasted malts. I was already expecting to like it, and I was still surprised by how good it tasted. Mouthfeel is relatively light, but the taste makes it seem fuller. Overall, this is a delicious stout, easy to drink. One of my new favorites.

Almost black in color. Formed a small tan head that did not last.

Sweetness up front. Roasted malts and chocolate. It actually has a milky mouth feel. Almost like drinking a chocolate milk but with a bitter after taste.

For a stout, it is not thick or heavy. It is super easy to drink. This goes down so easy, you have to be mindful not to drink it too fast because It is 7.5% ABV.

May not be the best stout I have ever had but probably the most easily drinkable.
