Pours black, just about opaque. The hops and grains unexpectedly dominate the smell, though the typical chocolate stout scent is found just beneath. The semi-sweet chocolate becomes the most obvious to taste, with a grainy, bitter hops lingering in the finish. It has a very light mouth feel, with an appropriate amount of carbonation. A decent stout, however there is nothing that makes it stand out in stand out in a crowd.

Excellent milk stout, great dark color with noticeable head even without an aggressive pour, head is dark and lingers well with a strong lace as the glass empties. This is a milk stout and if that's what you're after it will not disappoint. ABV is 7% so I found it very drinkable. Nice creamy vanilla overtones but the maltiness (roastiness) is a slow to arrive. Wonderful mouth feel - well balanced.

Pours opaque dark brown with a 1/2 tan head that fades to a ring and thin cap on top and leaves some spotty lace.

Smell is somewhat muted and consists of earthy, almost herbal hops with faint coffee and cocoa.

Taste is dominated by roasted malt with some lactose sweetness and hints of coffee and chocolate with a bitter hop finish.

Texture is light bodied with medium carbonation.

Somewhat of a disappointment. A fairly mediocre effort. Lacking in body and the flavor profile comes across as watered down and uninteresting.

Dark, almost black appearance.Some lacing with dissipating head.
Touch of sweetness, maybe a bit of chocolate.
Fruitiness at the start before lactose kicks in with a touch of bitterness at the end.
Mouthfeel is milky, a bit of coating, but a nice coating
A very good milk stout. Will look for it when I am craving a milk stout.

Good 2 1/2 finger head from a steady pour, tan and firm. Retention is good, and lacing is wide and spotted. Brew pours a nut brown, settling into a dark opaque black in the glass.

Roasted barley, grape, and light cocoa aroma. Wheat and cream. Fairly mellow aroma.

Very balanced (imperial?) stout; really represents a lot of different flavors: big roasted barley notes up front (that linger through the entire range), chocolate malts, and a lot of cream on the finish.

Good balance, medium-full mouthfeel. Not a chewy stout; more silky. Some sting, some foaming. Surprising alcohol representation at only 7.5%. Very nice lasting, oily finish.

Very good double stout, not quite great, but it would make an excellent go-to stout for a daily drinker (pick this instead of Guinness). Very, very flavorful.
