look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours pitch black with a thin tan head that doesn't stay around very long before becoming a wispy patch. Some dotted lacing sticks.

The smell is of chocolate syrup, chocolate cake, lactose (giving a sour touch) and some alcohol.

The taste is very much of chocolate. The sweet, dark chocolate is balanced by sour lactose and mild roast. The alcohol is quite apparent - almost harsh. It has a fairly long finish.

It is pretty silky - full-bodied but not thick. The moderate carbonation fits it well enough.

This is a nice, chocolatey, with sour notes, "sipper".

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.
