Easily my favourite stout. First tried in NYC on a hot day. Hit the spot. Very drinkable.

Misc.: N/A

Poured an almost pitch black color with three fingers of dark khaki tan, rocky head. Great thick layered foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Great retention all the way down on the top. (Sight - 4.24)

Smelled dark chocolate, roasty coffee malts, mocha, vanilla, chocolate milk, chocolate syrup and faint crayon. (Smell - 4.20)

Tasted similar to the nose, so smooth. Dark chocolate milk, roasty black coffee, chocolate syrup, smoky fire, still that crayon and cocoa nibs. (Taste - 4.20)

Medium body. Creamy-to-sticky texture. Average carbonation. Long smooth finish. (Feel - 4.14)

A nice milk stout, one of the best I’ve ever had. I have a feeling I slightly overrated it though. (Overall - 4.20)
