Sweet. Cloyingly so from the marshmallow and lactose, but still an enjoyable brew. Darker than midnight under a new moon, thicker than a bowl of oatmeal. In keeping with what I've come to expect from dessert stouts from The Veil, so the partnership makes sense. Quite a healthy dose of vanilla alongside the other flavoring agents.

Marshmallow variant on tap at The Veil Forever Summer Fest.

Nice dark color with a bit of tan lacing. Very attractive marshmallow and cocoa notes, along with roasted malts. Roasty, nutty, with good marshmallow creaminess. A bit sweet, perhaps, but very tasty. Easy drinking, flavors not entirely well-rounded, but work well together. ABV disguised well. Might be a one-off, but it sure tasted great.

Sampled in a taster glass from draft at Half Acre Beer Company on August 10, 2019. Brewed in collaboration with The Veil. A monster grain bill with marshmallow, lactose and Madagascar vanilla. Decadent cherry fudge milk shake.

Canned 8/2/19; drank 8/11/19 @ the Yarchives.

Black appearance.

A rough pour yielded a nice tan head; thick, frothy tree-rung lace.

Marshmallow, milk chocolate, mild hop bite & faint strawberry notes in the nose.

Creamy, thick mouthfeel.

Sweet marshmallow, milk chocolate, mild cream & faint strawberry flavors; no booze heat.

SWEET, then, but overall pretty enjoyable.
