6/28/18: 1 pint, 6 oz bottle purchased at Whole Foods 12/3/17 ($12.99) poured into very large beer stein in one pour. Slight tan head and lacing, good carbonation, pitch black beer. Dark chocolate and roasted malt aroma, balanced not too sweet. Strong roasted malt taste, offset by chocolate, very nice, not too sweet which I loved. Thin creamy texture, carbonation holds well, Overall excellent beer, glad I popped open today.

Pours very dark with a half inch dark brown head. As this beer warms it seems to get better taste wise but it smells boozy no matter what. Not a bad sweet stout, but not defining.

Bottled 08/14/17

L-The beer pours a thick dark black with one finger of dense mocha head. The head recedes to a thin ring with patchy lacing.
S- The nose is fairly muted but the typical elements of chocolate and dark roast make up the majority. There is a musty, earthy aroma which I assume is the hops.
T- The taste is a near perfect balance of chocolate and roast. The beer is so well balanced that you only get glimpses of each element as you sip.
F- Mouthfeel is medium full. Carbonation is prickly, but light overall. Not the thickest stout, but more than adequate for the style.
O- One of the best milk stouts that I've had. If I had access it would be a regular in my fridge. Recommended.

Poured into a tall glass. Has a beautiful opaque dark brown color with a fluffy reddish tan head, moving around the glass putting delicate lacing everywhere. Carbonation slowly rises to the top and makes the head look surreal while in motion, the lacing slowly descending upon a twirl.

I smell roasted malt, roasted coffee beans, brown sugar, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, espresso, oats, vanilla, caramel, and other floral flavors. Quite diverse.

Espresso and latte coffee are the first tastes I encountered. Other flavors include dark chocolate, char, milk, toffee, caramel, brown sugar, cream, and oats. Lovely sweet subtle vanilla and also dark fruit to balance the complex flavors and hops. Feels heavenly creamy in the mouth and while going down.

Excellent stout.

Poured into a pint glass. It looked fantastic in the glass with an opaque dark brown color. A normal pour produced a large and fluffy tan head that gradually settled, leaving rocky foam and splotchy laces. The aroma was exactly as I expected with milk chocolate, roasty malt, and a faint floral hoppy note. No surprises on the first sip: roasted malt, chocolate, some char and toast all within a slightly sweet milky background. The hop presence was moderately bitter which kept it from being too sweet but also detracted slightly from the main flavors. A great feel, slightly heavy and silky. This was 8% but the alcohol was well-hidden. A great sipper, just a touch too bitter.
