4.58/5  rDev +19.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours dark and cloudy.
Head: Tight, forthy light brown head, with long retention,
Smell: Chocolate, malt, with some hint of coffee,
Taste: Chocolate front, malty, with strong coffee after taste. Very well done. Outstanding, really.
Mouthfeel: Thin, light bodied and well carbonation

Overall: Wonderful stout that I'd drink next to, or even over Dublin's pride any day. It's a little thin, but that does not harm, probably makes it a bit easier to convert to the urinals, and moves more of it across the bar in the brewery. No harm or foul there.

ABV could be 3.50% and I'd not complain about it.

I enjoyed this beer so much, I immediately bought a couple of six packs to bring home.
Appearance: Impenetrable black with maybe two fingers of creamy, caramel colored foam. Nice lacing.

Smell: This is the beer's weakest attribute and had me a bit worried about my choice before the first sip. Smell is a bit acrid, although not terribly unusual for the style.

Taste: Exceptionally smooth, with a lot of caramel, chocolate, and coffee notes. Not sure what the abu's are, but certainly low. Excellent, lingering aftertaste, particularly of the coffee undertones. I'm trying to be pseudo-scientific here, but this beer is just plain good.

Mouthfeel: A bit thin like others in this style, but certainly not unpleasant.

Overall: I'm surprised at how much I enjoyed this beer given the lackluster nose at first sniff, but I certainly did. Can a beer be robust yet smooth? Rough, yet polished? Polish Moon can. Another really fine beer from Mke Brewing.

4.03/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours the darkest, possible brown…limited khaki colored head…(4/5)

Smell: Chocolate, malt, some coffee and the tinniest bit of dark fruits…tons of chocolate though, very nice… (3.5/5)

Taste: Lots going on here…toasted malts and dark fruits beginning then blending with soft bitterness, coffee, mocha and some cream flavor…very nice…(4.5/5)

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a bunch of carbonation…very nice…some chocolate milkshake flavor…it is a bit watery…(3.5/5)

Overall: This is a very drinkable beer…let it sit out a bit from the fridge for the best flavor…the chocolate smell is outstanding and ultra inviting…chocolate aroma, dark fruits and toasted malts make a great combination here…though there isn’t as deep a chocolate flavor as the aroma advertises…a twinge of bitterness in the deep background, but it very minimal…flavor and carbonation are excellent, this is definitely one of my favorite milk stouts to date…this is a delicious malty brew…(4/5)
