look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

The beer comes in a nice black color with a fluffy brown head.

The aroma is very lacking but has some lactose and milk chocolate.

The flavors has medium plus roasted malt bitterness, burnt toast. There is watered down black coffee with tinges of cocoa. The finish has aggressive herbal and earthy hops. A good creamy and smooth mouthfeel at least.

The beer in general is lacking in flavor, but with assertive bitterness. It could use more robust malt character or sweetness.

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

12oz bottle poured into a Libby globe porter/stout glass. No date on the bottle.

Appearance: Dark brown to black - dark cola brown at the edges. Thin tan head died back fairly quickly and left a ring at the edge. some strands and sheets of persistent lacing.

Smell: Roasted malt, hint of coffee, cocoa powder, hint of citrus on the swirl, and something else. Raisins? Interesting and enticing.

Taste: Roasted malt, milky sweet chocolate balanced with black coffee notes and a bitter finish which is roasted/charred malt plus a hint of pine.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, nice thickness, some creaminess under the carbonation.

Overall / Drinkability: Very tasty. Nicely balanced between sweet and bitter. Went well with butterscotch cookies. I could easily have another.

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

Deep black color with a thin head with low retention.
Aroma of chocolate and roasted coffee beans
Flavor of earthy hops, very spiced yeast, caramels, milk, bitter chocolate, licorice and finishing with ashy coffee. The lactose is just giving a nice touch and not making it overly sweet. Dry with a long lasting bitterness.
Medium body with decent carbonation. Alcohol of 7.5% abv is well hidden.
Very earthy and spiced Stout. A Milk Stout with character without being too sweet. I liked it.
