A: black with no light coming through. thin head that sticks around till the end. good amt of carbonation bubbles.
S: roasted malts. Metallic phenols and quite a bit of alcohol. Dark chocolate. Not a very complex bouquet. Could do without such strong alcohol.
T: Wow! A lot sweeter and chocolatier (more like milk chocolate) than I was expecting after the smell. Roasted but not bitter malts. Some alcohol but not nearly what the smell suggested. Good amt of bourbon to it. Not overkill. very well balanced. Seems like there is lactose in it?...
M: Very smooth and thick. The mouthfeel in combination with the taste really make me think I'm having a really strong milk stout. Very light aftertaste.
O: I was disappointed with the smell and worried that I was going to be drinking liquid nickel mixed with alcohol but the taste was great. Would love to have a chance to have it on tap!
Serving type: bottle

Smooth character and chocolate taste. Normally I like Guiness but this stout is an outstanding substitute. My first taste was in Williamsburg, VA at the Greenleafe Cafe. Good location with a plethora of beers on tap.
This stout offers a good head, a chocolate bouquet, smooth drink and a mild, sweet finish. Not bitter and definitely drinkable. It would be excellent as a dessert all by itself!!
Serving type: on-tap
