12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, completely opaque, pitch-black color with a quarter of a finger white head that quickly dissolved into a thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Nice aromas of roasted malt and some lactose, imparting notes of coffee with cream, freshly baked dark bread and notes of vanilla and dark molasses.

Taste: Pretty, good. Roasted malt and coffee up front, followed by some freshly baked dark bread, brown sugar and caramel-like sweetness, vanilla and slight touch of licorice. Not much in the way of hops or really any sweet potatoes or vegetables or fruit.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied to slightly chewy. Some decent carbonation, much more than usually expect in a cream stout, but not enough to tickle the taste buds or anything. With an ABV of 4.5%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a pretty good milk stout, possessing nice malt, coffee and cream flavors, balanced nicely with some sweetness, but I didn’t get any sweet potato flavors or complementary spices, such as cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, as you get in say a pumpkin beer or in sweet potato dishes, so in that area, this beer is a little bit of a disappointment. I’m glad I tried it, but I probably won’t get it again.
