A: Jet black. virtually no head.

S: Chocolate, espresso, almost a sweet dessert smell.

T: First the creamy taste stands out probably due to the lactose sugars. I get a lot of coffee, chocolate and some caramel. You get a lot of sweetness but its so balanced with the coffee that its not overwhelming.

M: Great mouth feel, its so very smooth and creamy.

O: A great milk stout. I loved it and will be buying again.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

From: Eddy’s Beverage Inc. in Saratoga, N.Y.
Price: $1.99
Purchased: Jan. 15, 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.
