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

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance is a very dark brown and a small amount of tan colored head that fades quickly. Very fizzy.

Smell is fairly modest, maybe hints of chocolate.

Taste is much more distinct, big coffee and chocolate flavor followed by creamy sweetness and a touch of hoppy/coffee bitterness. Really nice.

Mouthfeel is very creamy and sweet, but with lots of carbonation to keep it from getting cloying.

Overall this is an excellent milk stout.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

330ml bottle served in a big snifter glass.

A: Pours a blackish brown color forming a small but quite creamy beige head. Medium retention and only small spotty lacings left in the glass

S: Strong notes of roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate. Biscuity. Earthy yeast profile. Great notes of flowery hops in the end

T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of roasted malts, coffee, milk and dark chocolate follows by a sharp hops bitterness in the end. Great balance of roasted malts bitterness and hops bitterness

M: Heavy, creamy and milky body. Smooth. Good carbonation (a bit too much, indeed). Roasted malts and hops in the aftertaste

O: Great drinkability. Delicious American Milk Stout

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

Color- black onyx. Medium head colored mocha.

Aroma- espresso with a mild almond hint.

Taste- A rich stout starting with a classic roasty deep malt, slight vanilla hint in the middle, and finishing with a nice hoppy dryness.

Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted 8/24/2013.
