What an incredible stout! After hearing about this one for a while i picked up a 6 pack.
Appearance- Black as night with a light brown hazelnut colored head, nice and thick if poured right. There are beautiful burgundy tints with light passing through.
Smell- So appetizing. Rich mocha smell with caramel and toast notes. Pretty sweet but nicely burnt as well. I would wear this as cologne if i could.
Taste- After reading alot of reviews i had an idea of what this would taste like. I was wrong, it was so much better than what i imagined. Rich espresso flavors ride in strong and caramel and chocolate smooth out the flavor with a creamy milk feel. The bitterness in the back is clean and light. The alcohol is pretty much hidden under all the richness.
Mouthfeel- Full mouthfeel, very rich and creamy.
I could drink this beer all night long. One calls for another and so on. Excellent stout.

Pours a deep dark brown with a finger of beige head that retains quite nicely and leaves a good amount of lace behind on the glass. The nose is mildly roasty. The roast in the flavor profile is very mild and is almost completely overwhelmed by the sugary sweetness that lasts into the finish.
I know that milk stouts are supposed to be sweet but the best of this style balance the sweetness with some nice roasted malt flavor. This offering falls too far into the sweet category for my liking.
