Bottle poured into a Young's nonic.
A- A 2-finger, dense, tan-brown head formed with a bit of a sloppy pour. The dark brown body nears black through the middle. Wonderful, sticky rings are left behind as the head settles into a half-finger throughout the sample.
S- I was met with a rush of chocolate milk at first. Hints of medium roast coffee. A little molasses, as noted on the label peeks through. Light, vanilla accents.
T- the chocolate flavor is of a darker! More bitter quality than the aroma would suggest. Subtle coffee notes. Lighter notes of maple syrup and vanilla, lighter still. Gets a little roast toward the end. Sweet start comes to a clean, dry finish. Very rich and complex.
M- So rich and creamy. Light carbonation, which I prefer in the style. Lightest, alcohol warmth.
O- Stradles the line between a traditional Americn stout and a double stout at 7% ABV. Kind of the best of both worlds, a nice sipper that doesn't knock you over. A lot going on with the chocolate, lactose, and molasses additions. Fortunately they compliment one another and nothing gets lost.

Black in color,but some light does manage to peek through. A fingernail thin layer of khaki colored head is present and doesn't cover quite the entire top. Light notes of chocolate are all I get with the aroma. I get predominately sweet chocolate and a light,neutral hoppiness in the front of the palate. The mouth is a bit sticky and viscous. Somehow the chocolate and the hoppiness comes off a bit cloying. Sweet and slightly bitter is odd.
