Pint on tap at 5 Seasons Prado.

Looks perfect: Essentially black in the glass with a large, creamy, dark tan head that leaves plenty of lacing and has good retention. Looks like a notro tap but is not.

Aroma is rather faint for style, particularly the coffee. No burnt or off notes notes. Likewise for the flavor, although a solid coffee note comes through from the finish onwards. A bit sweet, but less so than average for milk stouts, probably due to the coffee.

Outstanding mouthfeel: creamy smooth; medium-light body; perfect and very soft carbonation.

Purchased 3/23/12. Reviewed from notes.

(Appearance) Arrives with a thick tan froth head that retains below average. Color is very dark brown, near black with a light shining through the top. Looks decent, but head quality makes for a less-than-stellar appearance. 3.5

(Smell) Lactose and cocoa up front, earthy hops and a lesser coffee presence in back. It's very sweet smelling. Pretty good. 3.5

(Taste) Lactose with a smaller chocolate presence in the back. The coffee presence is so mild it's almost not there and really plays a burden by complicating the beer. 3

(Mouthfeel) slick smooth with just enough carbonation to get it by. Low alcohol presence, medium/heavy body. Good pairing. 4

(Overall) pretty good but theres some bugs to be worked out in this beer mainly lactose presence, which is too much and lack of others 3.5

Comes out of the tap a beautiful opaque sable with a thick tan head that leaves a lot of lacing. Strong aroma has a mocha overtone, quality coffee plus semi-sweet chocolate and hints of molasses and licorice. Scrumptious flavor has coffee, chocolate and molasses notes, not too sweet, very drinkable. Firm-bodied texture has a pleasant fizz and leaves a tingly mocha finish. Catch it while you can!

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Very dark brown body with a one-third inch of creamy, cafe-colored head. Nicely coating lace on the descent.

Smell: REV-elation smells of roast, cola nuts, bittersweet chocolate, pithy citrus, snappy florals, and scorched cream.

Taste: A start of dark chocolate along with roast, charred nuts, and some sugary caramel. Moderately sweet. Rather light astringency from the roasted grains, but there's also a notable hop presence here. Floral, citrusy hops. Medium-plus bitterness. Creamy lactose accents housed in the front half only. Final blip of sweetness, then a roasty, hoppy, still fairly bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Slight creaminess.

Overall: Stands out among other milk stout with it's brighter-than-most hop character. Fairly good.
