Appearance is dark, with a modest head. The aroma is either lacking, or maybe just subtle. The taste is cocoa, if it's anything. It's awfully sweet for a stout, without much roasted malt character. It's kind of like a halfhearted milk stout. It's OK, I guess, but not much more than that.

Solid. Tried in SLC at Beerhive on tap and a Wine Bar tfrom a bomber.

A: The beer pours a deep dark brown body, with a 2 finger dense off-white head that fades slowly and laces a bit.
S: The aroma is too faint with roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and char. Sweeter.
T: The taste follows smell and still more sweet with chocolate, coffee and round hard candies. Lactose creaminess is balanced by enough hop bittering. I kept coming back for more.
F: Satisfying and clean. Easy to consume 2. Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry.
O: Nice steady friend.

On nitro-tap 6/26/2016 at Flynn’s in Mansfield, MA, served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep dark brown color, with a large dense off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is faint but contains roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and lactose.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of chocolate, coffee and marshmallow. Then some lactose creaminess quickly follows along with a hearty malt character. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly bready.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, light-to-medium carbonation, finish is clean and dry.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while.

Pours a deep brown, almost black, with a thin creamy tan head that leaves small sticky lacing. The aroma is deep roasted chocolate malts with just a hint of coffee and cocoa. The taste is a little washed out, mostly just the dark malts. The body is also a little thin and a touch watery.

Rich, smoky aroma has a strong chocolate note and tones of coffee and molasses. It pours a deep, warm sable with a respectable tan head. Mouth-filling flavor has firm notes of roast malt, coffee, sweet chocolate and molasses with licorice and nutty hints. Smooth texture has good firmness and fizz, and leaves an earthy finish with traces of mocha. Look for this one!
