A-Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a lot of light brown head that leaves good lacing.
S-Fairly strong aromas od dark chocolate and coffee. Slightly sweet smelling.
T-Tons of roasted flavor with some bitter chocolate and coffee flavors. There is some sweetness along with a very slight smoke flavor.
M-Medium bodied, fairly strong alcohol warmth, decent carbonation.
Overall, I like this beer. It's maybe a bit strong for a milk stout but the flavors are pretty great. It's nicely balanced, not too malty and sweet and not too roasted and bitter.

A:Inky black with dark chocolate head.

S: Mmm- coffee and chocolate.

T: intense mocha flavor, with coffee leading and chocolate supporting.

M: thick and warming, with with a slight (almost) gritty feeling induced by the light carbonation.

O: It's quite good- Super creamy and decadent. I'll have to try baking with this someday.

thanks to urbancaver for hooking it up with dark horse stuff a while ago.

a - opened the bottle and filled my duck rabbit snifter. poured a gorgeous thick rich black and a thin creamy dark tan head. very attractive. head was gone quick and the lacing was pretty slick.

s - dark roasted chocolate. kind of boozy. smells like a deep dark russian imperial stout.

t - big roast. is this really a milk stout? seems like a RIS. much bigger and bolder than most milk stouts with the sweetness more in the background and the roasted chocolate upfront. really tasty though.

m - kind of crisp. i can feel the tingle of the booze. medium to soft bodied.

o - overall, this one has some time on it as i received it a while back and it tastes pretty fantastic still...seems more RIS to me than milk stout. either way, another fine beer from dark horse. this brewery continues to impress me. word on the street is that they will be hitting NY soon so fingers crossed and can't wait.
