3.58/5  rDev -10.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a nonic pint glass.

Appearance: Black body, just a pinch of light breaks through. A rather flimsy brown head collapsed quickly and left a moderate amount of lacing throughout.

Smell: Hot chocolate. Coffee. Subtle floral notes.

Taste: Strong notes of semi-sweet chocolate up front give way to bitter notes of coffee and floral esters from the hops. This particular bottle seemed a bit hop-heavy to me.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation. Very creamy medium-full body. Semi-dry finish.

Overall: This stout just fell short for my liking. I prefer slightly sweeter milk stouts. This was too bitter. They got the milky texture right, they just need to work on balancing this one out. This could have just been a bad bottle but it struck me as nothing more than a slightly above average stout.
