12oz bottle into a snifter
Bottled on: 5/9/14

A: Very dark brown during the pour, and then black as it rests in the glass. 1.5 fingers width of light tan heads builds and then has great retention before dissipating down. Leaves tons of lacing. 4.25

S: Lots of heavy cream/lactose notes, some roasty notes, bakers chocolate. A unique, almost tart aroma that I cant quite place. Good but not great. 3.75

T: Roasty, lactose, chocolate, bitter coffee. Long lingering flavors of bakers chocolate and coffee. 4

M/D: Full bodied but not necessarily thick. Carbonation on the heavier side but appropriate. Drinkability is good. 3.75

O: Very good, not one of my favorite Southern Tier stout, but certainly worth a try. 4

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip pint glass

The beer pours a deep brown/nearly black with about two fingers worth of dense tan head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving behind very little lacing.

The beer smells moderately roasty and slightly sweet, The aroma seems to fit into a nice middle ground of not being too mild, but also not being overpowering

The taste, like the aroma, is moderately roasty and slightly sweet. The sweetness seems to come more from a heavy handed use of crystal malts than from the lactose. The body is a little thinner than I would expect for the style.

Overall, this is a decent beer that is fairly easy to drink, but not something that I would seek out. I prefer my Milk/Sweet Stouts to be a bit fuller in body, and a have a little more sweetness from the lactose.
