Opens with chocolate and light roast on the nose. Pours bright, deep chestnut under a ½” lightly tan tinted foam cap. A big palate starts with dark, bitter chocolate spiced with espresso with some fresh grain notes swimming through. Has a slight warming but the alcohol is smooth and not hot. Very creamy and chewy with medium low carbonation.

First drink of this beer is very good until the bitter ending. I have gotten use to the milk stouts or even some of Guinness products have less of a bitter finish. Having said that I'm still going to finish the beer so it can't be that bad

Poured a deep deep brown, only noticeable under direct light. There a light tan head that doesn't last long, but still manages to leave some small soapy lacing. The aroma is a little mild for the style, with lighter notes of raisin and licorice. The taste, though, brings big flavors that the aroma misses, adding coffee and chocolate and a nice earthy hops quality. The body has nice weight and a slicker mouthfeel.
