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

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.

Appearance - It is a blackish brown with a light brown head, with a good head and retention.

Smell - It is a has the coffee bitterness with the sweetness of chocolate.

Taste - Sweet but with a sharp bitterness to it; its most coffee flavor.

Mouthfeel - A bit too much carbonation, good body otherwise.

Overall - A good stout, but the bitterness can overpower the sweetness.
