On tap at the source
Pours a solid dark brown that borders on black with a huge creamy tan head that sticks around forever and leaves plenty of lace on the way down. Smell is sweet and roasty with just a hint of coffee. Smells a little like a mix between chocolate and coffee milk. Taste is sweet an a bit sugary with lots of roast, chocolate, coffee and a hint of lactic bite that I always seem to get from beer sweetened with lactose. Smooth silky creamy mouthfeel, medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation. Very nice stout. I wish I could have tasted the milk stout and this one side by side.

Bottle shared by Stawn, thanks! Snifter.

A: Black with a small bubbly beige head.

S: Black coffee with roasted malt and dark chocolate. I get a little dark fruit that reminds me of plum. A bit muted.

T: Light coffee with chocolate and a little earth. I get a faint lactic note. Not much going on.

M: Full body with moderate carbonation.

Overall: Not bad, just insipid.

Thanks to dpuia for sharing a bomber on 10/2/11.

A - Emerged from the bottle as a chocolate brown liquid with burgundy highlights around the bottom and virtually no head save for a patchy veil, yet it produced quite a bit of spotty lace around the glass.

S - Iced coffee and chocolate with a dominant roasted malt character. Simple but effective.

T - Opens with a blend of semi-sweet and milk chocolate paired with roasted coffee beans. While there isn't much bitterness, there is a hint of earthiness present, as well as mild astringency. Finishes with a deep roasted coffee malt character and some nuttiness that really ties everything together.

M - Medium bodied with a silky yet somewhat thin texture, yet it still maintains a creaminess that is pleasant. Carbonation is modest. Finishes with mild nutty astringency and very little bitterness on the palate.

D - I liked this more and more with each passing sip. The dominant coffee character works really well with the milk chocolate smoothness, and neither is too heavy-handed. Delicious!

Received this bottle in a recent trade with jammalamma, thanks Ben! Split into two snifters:

A - Pours a somewhat fizzy head, which is pretty much not there. What head is there is a creamy mocha/egg shell white. Almost pitch black in color. Little bit of splotchy lacing.

S - Creamy milk chocolate and pretty big on the sweet lactose. Small amounts of roasted malts and coffee like aroma.

T - Chocolate, roast and lactose. The coffee is really light and almost not there. A tad bit watery but its still pretty good.

M - A bit thin. The roast leaves a bit of a dry feeling. Carbonation is really light and not that carbonated...but the milk chocolatiness is really smooth and creamy.

O - Not too bad. Its tasted great and smelled good, I just wish it had a bit more body and thickness. Pretty good though. Thanks again Ben.
