3.98/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from 12oz bottle. Thanks to VinnieVanGogh for this one.

A- Pours a deep black color with hints of a light red hue on the edges of the glass. One finger mocha colored head shows great retention. Long thick sticky streaks of lace everywhere on the sides of the glass.

S- I keep getting a nice smoke presence in the front of the aroma. Bitter baker's chocolate in the front half of the aroma makes more of a appearance than the roasted malts which play secondary hints. Light notes of vanilla toward the ending of the aroma. Second half of the nose is more of a bitter chocolate and cream blend. This reminds me more of a milk/sweet stout more than anything else.

T- Roasted malts come in the front of the beer with a light hint of smoke. I don't know if it is suppose to be there but it works really well with the beer as far as I can tell. Chocolate in the front half of the beer as well comes in a bitter form. Caramel malts show up in the middle of the beer off setting a little of the bitter tones to this beer. Backend of the beer shows a lot coffee flavor blended with light burnt beans. A nice underlying vanilla hint here and there go well with a lingering chocolate/coffee ending. The alcohol is lightly present but never gains strength overall.

M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is good for the style. Bitter chocolate and coffee roast is left on the palate. Aftertaste is mostly light alcohol, roasted coffee, and light vanilla and chocolate hints. Flavors are blended well although not to the style as labeled...I would have went with more of a milk/sweet stout label for it. No off flavors at all when drinking this beer. Medium alcohol drying on the palate.


O- This beer is a nice drinker which one could have a lot of for the lack of alcohol being tasted in the beer. Medium range ABV means while being able to have many it will end up sneaking up on you. I personally thought it could have had a different labeling as it is more of a milk/sweet stout to me. A nice surprise beer that I knew nothing about.

3.55/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A-almost black with a fingers worth of tan head

S-overall smell is sort of light but consists of roasted malt, light coffee bitterness, caramel, and milk chocolate

T-taste is similar to the smell, also a bit subdued. Roasted malt, roasted coffee, and dark chocolate. A tad harsh.

M-too thin for the style, prickly carbonation, dry finish

Overall this beer kind of seems all over the place. Starts out promising with the smell but that was as good as it got for me. I wouldn't try this again.
