4.13/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours dark, with a caramel head, which doesn't stick around much, nor does it leave much lacing. Sunlight will pass through the glass, resonating with a deep red glow. Gorgeous when poured in the light of the setting sun. (Overly poetic? Maybe, but the color really is fantastic...not just black.)

Smell: Slightly metallic, but mostly roasty, rich coffee. No hops, not much malt in the nose.

Taste: Dark coffee, significant lingering sweetness, reminiscent of chocolate cupcakes, but blessedly not cloying. Excellent paired with chocolate cake. Worth savoring. A slight metallic note sticks around through the finish, marring what would otherwise be a perfect example of the style.

Mouthfeel: With a milk stout, you expect a thick, creamy mouthfeel, and this beer delivers. I've had more creamy milk or cream stouts, but this one still is quite excellent.

Overall: I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the beers in North Carolina, and this one did not disappoint. Eager to try the other beers from this brewery. A sweet, but not at all syrupy stout, excellent for your after dinner dessert. When tasting this excellent example of a cream/milk stout, you don't get the sense that the brewer used cheap tricks to obtain the flavors and results. An excellent example of the style.

Deep brown hue and is only letting a bit of light through when held up to light. A quarter inch of tightly woven khaki colored head. Brussels lacing. Aroma of cocoa powder and lactose greets my nose. The body is silky smooth and creamy. I get cocoa and lactose quickly fading away when I take a taste.

Very carbonated. Poured with a very tall tan head. A lot of carbonation which you can tell based on the pop of the bottle cap. The beer itself is dark brown. Smells of roasted malts, slight coffee and chocolate. Nutty and bready too. The taste is of dark, roasted malts as well as chocolate and espresso. It's a medium bodied brew that's smooth and sticky. Very solid beer here.
