A- Black and rich. Little to no head even on an aggressive pour.

S- Roasted coffee all the way. Slight sweetness.

T- Coffee and toasted oats when it hits the palate. Finishes sweet and creamy.

M- Lingering sweetness that coats the mouth.

O- Very good milk stout. Great beer to drink while smoking a pipe full of a sweet tobacco blend. I would love to try this beer in a nitro bottle.

A--Dull, black color. It doesn't have that obsidian like shine to it like most stouts. One finger head that dissipates quickly. Lacing that coats the whole glass and glides slowly to form a minimal latticework

S-Sweet half and half cream, light notes of coffee and chocolate. Sweet caramel really comes out when you sniff for a while

T-Milk chocolate with a touch of coffee and some strong notes of sugar. Very drinkable stout.

MF-Probably the smoothest beer I've ever had, in my opinion.

O-The smell and mouthfeel are the best parts, as they are very subtle and smooth. Taste is good, nothing stand out or is too potent. Overall a great beer, very drinkable, very smooth, smells fantastic, and has a subtle, non-complex taste.
