A: Ours deep pitch, almost dark fudge color with a limited cocoa powder colored head.

S: Dark, roasted coffee is the dominant with tobacco notes. Zero hop aroma with rich, burnt malt. Burnt marshmallow.

T: Espresso or similar dark roast coffee flavor with black licorice. Bitter with a creamy finish. Burnt vanilla and burnt dark chocolate.

M: Smooth with little carbonation. Acidic from the coffee with chalky finish. The way a cigar makes your mouth feel after smoking it.

O: It's just too burnt. Not sure if the coffee beans were over roasted but once you get the burnt flavor on your taste buds there is no going back ie. "Toast can never be bread again." I felt like a licked an ashtray and had a strong cup of coffee to rid the taste. I love coffee stouts but this is too heavy and difficult to enjoy.

Undated bottle at 42 degrees into hand washed and dried JK snifter, allowed to warm to 50 degrees
Aroma – roasted malt, fades
Head – average (Maximum three cm, aggressive pour), medium brown, creamy with rocks, diminishing to two mm ring and partial rocky layer
Lacing excellent – wide rings of tiny bubbles
Body – dark brown/black, opaque. Sediment in bottle.
Flavor roasted malt, slightly bitter, initially harsh but smooths out as it warms up; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium to full, creamy, soft carbonation

A passable stout, not really tasting or feeling like a milk stout. One and done, unless nothing else is available.

Appearance 4, Aroma 3.75, Flavor 3.5, Palate 4, Overall 3.75

12 oz bottle. Black color with small beige head that dissipates completely. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts. Taste is coffee, more roasted malts, freshness from the lactic character, a hint of tartness, slightly bitter finish.
