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

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into one of my trusty Half Acre tulip glasses

A - Dark brown with a slight red tinge when held up to the light, very slight light brown head, mild lacing.

S - Get sweet milk chocolate, cocoa, maybe a hint of vanilla

T - Good crisp taste with threads of chocolate and vanilla, some roasted malts for sure, nice finish with a little kicks of hops.

M - Slight creaminess with a nice edge to it, very mild carbonation.

O - I was very pleasantly surprised, nicely balanced brew as some one else said it grows on you as you take another taste.

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

Pours a black some red highlights when held to the light. Only a one finger brown head even from an aggressive pour only light lace.

Aroma is sweet, definite lactose sweetness present. Nice chocolate notes and light coffee.

Taste is nice good lactose sweetness, chocolate notes with good coffee hints with light smoke hints. Good smooth sweetness with a finish that's mostly coffee with a light hop bite. Finding the flavor very enjoyable and smooth.

Mouthfeel is a big medium very smooth, nice.

Overall liking this one very enjoyable tasty sweet and smooth.

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

Very dark brown/black with a light brown head of a quarter to half an inch. Little strands of lace that slide.

Cocoa and milky malts in the nose. Medium roastiness. Apparent sweetness. Grains and light hops.

Rugged with malts. Roasty char, sweet milk, dark chocolate, hop bitterness with a flair of citrus, general earthiness. Undercurrent of fusel alcohol. Good stuff.

Medium body. Somewhat lighter carbonation. Feels good. A little alcohol noise carrying over.

Pretty damn solid milk stout. Growing on me each time I have one.

3.53/5  rDev -7.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A- Pours nearly pitch black with a small fizzy dark tan head that quickly dissapears completely, leaving no lace or retention.

S- sugary sweet chocolate syrup, light roasted character, touch of coffe, lightly herbal and woodsy

T- roasted malty notes give way to a sweet & sugary chocolate flavor, some herbal hop notes on tepee finish with just a touch of coffee on a sweet finish

M- medium-bodied, slightly chewy mouthfeel with low carbonation and a creamy finish, alcohol warmth on the end

O- this one was pretty pretty good, but hard to live up to their blackwater series beers. Worth a try, but probably won't buy again.

Pouted into a goblet. Color was a very dark brown, that was almost black. Opaque, with a thin brown bubbly head. Aroma was slightly sweet up front, mixed to a bit of smokey, then finished with a hint of alcohol. Flavor had the lactose sweet up front as I would expect it to be, but then shifted to a bit of bitter alcohol acidity. Coated very well, not overly thick, needed perhaps a tad more carbonation. Not bad. Up front, great flavor profile, but didn't finish very well.
