look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours midnight black wit a light khaki finger of thick and sticky foam.

So much chocolate malt and roast, some light vanilla and earthy woody notes as well.

Chocolate malt, Hershey's chocolate, and more chocolate. Vanilla flavor is much more pronounced, creamy rich espresso.

Heavy-bodied, light-medium carbonation, silky smooth and creamy.

Overall, the aroma could use some oomph, but the flavor stands out much more as well as the creamy mouthfeel make up a few points.

650 mL bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - Black body. Big off-white head. Medium collar.

Smell - Lots of lactose. Chocolate. Coffee. Mostly lactose.

Taste - Tastes better, but still a lot of lactose. Milk chocolate. Lactose sweetness. A little roasty.

Mouthfeel - Thicker than expected. Well carbonated.

Overall - Absurd lactose. Not a characteristic I enjoy.

Kind of an odd taste...definitely chocolatey, not bad...but not something I'd drunk repeatedly

Rating based on the nitro version. The regular is only a small step down. So good and creamy. Super dark and roast character. Pairs amazing with coffee.
