4.09/5  rDev +7.6%

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Samuel Smith English tulip pint.

a: Black with just the barest hint of ruby at the bottom, inch and a half tan head receded slowly to rocky surface foam and dense patterned lacing.

s: Dark ripe fruit.

t: Smoky dark malt up front followed by significant hop bite. Smoke and dark fruit aftertaste.

m; Medium. Smooth with considerabel carbonation tingle.

o: Not as sweet as anticipated since it is called a "Double Milk Stout," but a good solid balanced stout.

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: 16-oz. glass
From: Eddy’s Beverage Inc. in Saratoga, N.Y.
Price: $1.99
Purchased: Jan. 15, 2014
Consumed: Jan. 17, 2014
Misc.: N/A

Poured a pitch black color with 3-to-4 fingers of khaki tan head. Great amount of layered lacing along the sides of the glass. Average-to-below retention.

Smelled chocolate milk, toffee, caramel, chocolate, cola, nuts and menthol cough drops.

Tasted chocolate milk, chocolate, caramel, toffee, slight wood fire and cocoa. So smooth.

Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish.

This beer really grew on me. The taste made up for the bad start. Yummy.

3.29/5  rDev -13.4%

The head was minimal, and was beige. The beer color is non-translucent, dark brown.

The aroma is of roasted malts, and wood.

The taste is similar, but with the lactose sweetness, and a stronger than anticipated hop bite. On the low side of heavy bodied. It has low carbonation.

Not as good as I thought it would be. Just an okay beer.

3.78/5  rDev -0.5%

Poured from 12oz bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: extremely dark brown with a strong haze. Head is a finger of creamy tan foam with decent retention. A pretty attractive beer!

Smell: smooth and sweet with a little bit of chocolate character and a robust but not overpowering coffee character. Good, if not terribly complex.

Taste: sweet and roasty with some plum and date character; most of the chocolate and coffee are left back in the aroma. Sweetness is a bit strong at the end. Not bad.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and creaminess. I like it!

Overall: a little bit on the sweet side, even for the style, but still a tasty brew.
