L - black, with a compactly bubbled finger of hazel head that dissipates slowly but steadily
S - roasted malts, a hint of smokiness. Espresso, rather than the cafe latte that I expected from it being a milk stout.
T - more complicated in the mouth than it smelled at first glance. Roasted grains and espresso, joined by a fair amount of milk chocolate, beautiful, pure vanilla and some tobacco
F - not thick or syrupy at all, and doesn’t have any alcohol sting or warmth.

O - definitely not a bad beer, but as I let it sit and come up to temperature the more the aromas seemed to fade to become somewhat watery even after re-swirling the glass.
DISCLAIMER: we were enjoying some Easter chocolate at the time, which may have overpowered my palate at the end (chocolate is not a bad pairing, I might add)

I do recommend this one.

Pours black as night with a nice dark tan head, good retention and minimal lacing. A bouquet of sweetness with chocolate and coffee really present. A really nice balance of roasted coffee, a touch of bitterness that is offset by notes of chocolate and vanilla which really comes forward as it warms. Often I find smoke is an unnecessary addition, however in this beer it shines. The mouthfeel is almost velvet, but just enough carbonation to keep it interesting.

This is a fantastic stout, one I'd love to have more of

Pours jet black, with a three-finger tan creamy head that turns into a nice layer of foam, light lacing. It smells sweet; there's milk chocolate, some coffee and a touch of vanilla. The whole thing is a bit boozy but not overly so. Tastes very roasty and smokey, lots of coffee, some chocolate and vanilla; a bit spicy and slightly bitter. Body is light and a bit prickly.

Oh Charbon, where have you been all my life? This is absolutely terrific.
