Date: 11/6/2014
Location: Wegman's Allentown
Draught/Bottle: 750ml Brown Bottle
Glassware: Snifter

Appearance: Very dark brown to black in color that lets in no light with a fairly pronounced ring at the top of the beer that is closer to a dark caramel with some ruby that takes in lots of light.
Aroma: Milk chocolate is the clear winner in what's the first aroma out of the glass and along the lactose it smells very sweet. There is a touch of bittering chocolates as well. After that I get some sweet, but not as sweet, caramel malts and some wheat/hay like aromas.
Taste: Milk chocolate, bittering chocolate and lactose really are stars with the milk chocolate and lactose taking the front and the bittering chocolate taking the back. Again a solid malt base of caramel and wheats really help to move the beer into another phase. Which is sort of roasts and charcoal but pleasant. The flavors absolutely remind me of Lancaster County.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, medium carbonation. The beer is dry not in a bittering way but definitely from whatever is creating that charcoal like flavor in my mouth. It is really pleasant.

Notes: No Bottling date but consumed on International Stout day, because apparently that's a thing.

On tap last night at Funcks in Palmyra, PA. Part of a flight, 4.5ozs I think.

Black with good oatmeal head, which persisted with good lacing. Chocilate, coffee, and toasted malt on the nose. Flavor was mostly chocolate, (no surprise there), with a slightly burnt toasted malt in the finish, which balanced out the sweetness.

Usually not to keen on Lancaster, but this is a good one.
