Unknown vintage; drank 3/21/16 @ the Yarchives.

Poured from the bottle into a glass.

Black/brown appearance.

A rough pour yielded a huge dark khaki head; strong, frothy lace.

Raspberry, sweet sugar & milk chocolate notes in the nose.

Medium thick mouthfeel.

Raspberry & fresh earth flavors up front; dark chocolate notes on the finish. Sweet sugar settled on my lips over the course of the session. A nice sweet stout; the raspberry notes elevated this.

330ml bottle, an 'American-style stout', made with lactose. And funk, probably funk. Props for the punny name, though.

This beer pours a pretty solid black, with spare basal amber edges, and three fingers of puffy, tightly foamy, and mildly fizzy brown head, which leaves some sea waves crashing on the rocks lace around the glass as it lazily sinks away.

It smells of roasted caramel malt, buttery milk chocolate, cafe-au-lait, brown sugar syrup, an oily nuttiness, and some quickly evolving leafy, woodsy, and piney green hop bitters. The taste is gritty and grainy caramel/toffee malt, free-range ash, bitter coffee, boiled milk, chalky cocoa powder, singed dark sugar, muddled citrus rind, and a steady earthy, leafy, and piney hoppiness.

The bubbles are fairly solid in their structurally supportive frothiness, the body a decent medium weight, and mostly smooth, just a bit of roast and hop acridity potentially spoiling the fun. It finishes off-dry, the big malt, chocolate, and milky elements contending with the lingering hop bitterness.

Overall, this is a pleasant enough rendering of this broad style - I guess the biggish hops and the lactose (which would be English, but whatevs) make it so. Anyways, lots and lots of stuff going on here, but it generally works, including the well-obfuscated 14-proof alcohol quotient. And yup, no funk, thankfully!

Very dark brown poue with a soft, tall tan head that is slow to rise to the surface. Pine and grapefruit up front, followed by milk chocolate, lactose, cocoa, licorice and a bit of vanilla. A milk stout leaning towards a pine-forward black IPA. Right up my alley.

Pours extremely dark brown, almost black. Rich smell of coffee, chocolate, and slightly sweet. The flavours are rich as well, roasted malts, coffee, sweet chocolate, slightly syrupy mouthfeel.

Bought a single 330ml (11.2 ounce) bottle at the Hy-Vee across the Missouri River 2 weeks ago in Council Bluffs, Iowa for just $1.99, which was $5 off the regular price of $6.99! Of course I had to buy it. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a "STORZ" 16 ounce snifter glass.

Brew contains 7% ABV with no date on the label. Nice looking pour which was close to a pitch-black in color with a decent amount of lacing seen. Aroma is of dark roasted malts with a hint of milk chocolate and maybe even coffee. Taste follows the nose with a smooth creamy finish. Goes down easy and is very pleasant. Medium-bodied with good carbonation. Overall a very tasty brew!
